One of the ways of decorating the outdoors in any household could be solar garden lights. Not only the garden is illuminated by them but also give character by taking the appearance of the location to an altogether new dimension.
Best Solar Garden Lights
Any outdoor solar lights will function most efficiently if they get a lot of sunlight throughout the day. Functions of the solar lights will only start during the night and they will work well only if the battery is charged properly. Longer the exposure to sunlight will ensure longer life span for the solar lights. Natural sunlight is the best way of charging the battery.
Array of Lights for Better Effects
Usually an array of outdoor solar lights can act best as the garden lights. For instance; instead of using high illuminating lights, one can use an array of around twenty LED lights so that the illumination is not so high but soft and mysterious. Since arranging solar lights is not a difficult task with adequate guidance, users can opt for their own customized brands of garden lights.
Jars Come Handy
Jars could come very handy for creating LED light illuminations in the garden.
Jars are available in any market in dozens and can also be bought online.
Good jars can also be used as light covers and they can also be found in the thrift stores.
Safety Precautions in Using Garden Lights
While using the garden lights or customizing the solar lights, it is necessary to observe certain safety precautions. For instance; LED can directly be connected across the terminals of cells made with lithium coins. Long lead is used for the plus side while the shorter one is used for minus side. Just wrapping up the LED leads with tapes will prevent them from contacting with the battery cells. If jars with LED are used, they should not be thrown as the consequences could be disastrous.
Quick and Cheap
Solar garden lights can be customized or installed pretty quickly and the best part of it is that they come rather inexpensive in nature. Of course there are expensive items among the solar outdoor lights as well. Even cheaper in comparison are jar solar lights.
LED jar lights are temporary just like the traditional luminaries but the advantage with the jar lights is that they are waterproof unlike the traditional light
