How to use the solar light
- Prior to initial use, move the switch near the LEDs to the ON position. The solar unit should be exposed to sunlight for at least 6-8 hours to fully charge the battery. Remove the protective strip in the battery compartment.
- Find a location for direct sunlight and generally free from cover or shade. At night, the solar light will automatically turn on.
- Ideally, align the solar panel to face the midday sun to maximise charging.
- Only install by means of a suitable permanent fixing on a firm, flat, level surface.
Prior to drilling, check there are no hidden pipes or electric cables!
Positioning the solar light
Locate outdoors in direct sunshine where the solar panel can receive at least 6 hours of sunlight each day.
Shady locations will influence the charge and may shorten the working time of the light at night.
The solar light should not be placed near external lighting such as street lights, which may affect the activation of the internal sensor once it becomes darker.
The life of the rechargeable battery is approximately 6-12 months.
When the light becomes dim or is no longer functional, the battery should be changed:
- Push the switch to the off position.
- Using a screwdriver, remove the screws and gently lift off the top.
- Remove the battery and replace with a new 1 x AAA 1.2V 600mAh Ni-MH rechargeable battery. Do not replace with a normal alkaline battery.
- Do not disconnect, remove any wires or tamper with any other connections inside or around the compartment. Support the casing containing the solar panel section when removing the battery so no wires are put under strain. Replace the cover. Fit screws and securely tighten.
- Batteries should be inserted with the correct polarity.
- Non-rechargeable batteries should not be recharged.
- Avoid short-circuiting the battery terminals.
- Ensure the battery is securely fitted, making contact with the terminals.
- DO NOT DISPOSE OF IN FIRE.
- Dispose of the batteries in an environmentally correct manner.
- Battery replacement should only be performed by an adult.
- Keep batteries out of the reach of young children.
- Battery leakage can cause corrosion and damage to this product.
Cleaning & Care
To maintain maximum illumination, always keep the solar panel clean and free from dust and debris. Do not use any solvents or cleaning agents on the solar panel. If cleaning is required, please use a soft damp cloth or paper towel.
For long-term storage, charge the battery for 2-3 days before removing the battery pack and storing the light and battery in a cool, dry environment.
If the solar light does not illuminate when movement in front of the sensor is obvious, check the following:
- Ensure that the solar panel is in a location where it will receive maximum sunlight during daytime hours.
- Clean solar cells with a damp towel. Do not apply excessive pressure and avoid the use of any solvents or cleaning agents on the solar panel.
- Ensure that the switch is installed correctly.
- Check that the batteries are installed correctly.
- Allow the panel to charge in direct sunlight for 2 days to confirm that the batteries are fully charged.
- The light is designed to switch on when it turns dark. If there are strong light sources nearby, then the lights may be dim or not turn on.
- Replace the batteries.
