The built in solar panels convert sunlight into electricity. The rechargeable battery stores the energy and converts the power into light for use during the night. The lighting hours of the solar light depends on the geographical location and weather condition. Stronger or longer exposure to sunlight enables the battery to store more energy and provide longer lighting hours.
It is important to select an outdoor location with full, direct sunlight where the solar panel can receive at least 8 hours of sunlight each day. Shady areas will not enable batteries to be fully charged. This will reduce the lighting hours at night. It is also important to avoid placing the solar light by light sources, such as street lights or porch lights, which may cause the solar light to turn off automatically. The solar light is designated for outdoor usage and ideal for night lighting of garden, paths, etc. Do not submerge your solar light in water (i.e. ponds, fountain, etc).
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Please use a damp cloth to clean the solar panel. Do not use any chemical or abrasive cleaner. It is important to ensure that no moisture enters into the solar light. Replacement parts may be ordered by using the fixture model number and part's name; call the phone number located at the top and bottom of this instruction manual.
When the battery expires, it must be recycled or disposed of properly. Please contact your local waste disposal authority for correct procedure. Do not put battery into fire.replace the battery with AA 300 mAh Ni-Mh rechargeable battery
