The Kensington Solar Wall Light
The Solar Centre Kensington Solar Wall Light
This light is the length of a standard British brick
This stylish light has a large solar panel and enough battery
power and bulbs to throw out a useful amount of light for extended periods.
It comes on automatically with darkness so gives out a constant light until
the batteries run out. At nearly £30 it is expensive .
I have 2 low
down on my walls to light up pebbles in my beach garden. The oldest of my 2
lamps has 1 out of the 6 LEDs failed - which is disappointing considering
how long LEDs are meant to last, and how expensive this lamp is at nearly
£30. However these and one solar curve lamp the only solar powered lights
that have survived and still work in my seriously storm battered
The light from the Kensington also shines outward not down, so it is more
suitable on low walls and not high up where it may shine in your eyes.
solar panel is fixed to the light it must be located on a bright
south facing wall otherwise it will not generate enough power to make the
light last long.
In my south facing location the Kensington Solar Light
works all year round apart from the darkest stormiest days and in the summer
it often stays on until dawn.
Older Designs That Were Very Good
Solar Motion light with 32 LEDs!
This is an older model and has 4 settings so you can select the brightness and when/how it comes on.
2 - REPLACEABLE - RECHARGEABLE Li-ion Batteries
It comes with a fitting template for drilling 2 holes, a good quality screwdriver and screws.
It is not the latest design but works well and is a good price.

Solar Powered Pir Motion Sensor Security Light
Older Design PIR Wall Lamp - The Curve Solar PIR
I fitted 9 of the Curve solar motion lights around my house 3 years ago.
Each is similar to a 40w bulb and have worked well for 3 years, including winter.
The solar motion curve lamps have a 3.7v Li-ion battery and 16 LED bulbs!
This Curve was easily fitted to my south facing porch. It lights the entrance and signs.
When the PIR detects movement it lights up fully for 30 seconds.
Light output is 100 lumens and equivalent to standard 40w light bulb.
The curve is IP64 rated and is very water resistant.
Sadly the batteries in the Curve are wired in and non-replaceable so when the battery goes -its landfill. However my ones have all lasted 3 years.
