How does it work?
If you have a yard and have ever thought about lighting it at
night, then you have probably heard about solar yard lights. As
long as a location gets direct sunlight, you can put a light there
and have light at night for several hours.
These lights are extremely interesting because they are almost
like mini-satellites. They generate and store their own power
during the day and then release it at night. This is just like a
satellite that stores solar energy while it is on the sunny side of
the planet and then uses that energy when it's on the dark side.
At night, the solar cells stop producing power. The photo resistor
turns on the LED. The controller board accepts power from the solar
cell and battery, as well as input from the photo resistor. It has
a three-transistor circuit that turns on the LED when the photo
resistor indicates darkness.
Half of a candle's light is not very much, and if you have ever
purchased one of these yard lights you know that it really is not
enough to provide illumination. You use them more for marking a
trail or pathway -- they are bright enough to see, but not really
bright enough to illuminate the ground to any great degree. They
help define borders, pathways, & stairways. Use them in
walkways, patios, driveways, pool deck, stairways & along
garden paths. Due to the lower output, bugs are not as attracted to
them as they are to other outdoor lighting.
