The Sollux Solar Uplight is extremely durable, made from die-cast aluminium / aluminium alloy and rated IP67. Two aluminium ground spikes are supplied with both the uplight and solar panel which are separate components. This is perfect for uplighting areas and large trees with the solar panel mounted in full sunshine (4m away). In addition to the standard 4m plug & play cable, a 5m extension cable is also available should additional length be required. The main benefit of a separate polycrystalline solar panel is that they are much larger than if they were incorporated into the fitting. The larger the panel, the more effective they will be at absorbing sunlight to generate energy. A long range remote control (up to 20m) selects various working modes. As well as dusk to dawn and timer mode, there is also a dimming control.
It is available in 3 sizes: 25w, 60w and 120w to suit all applications. All of the solar uplights are impressively bright; the 120w with an output of 2400 lumens. The Sollux incorporates high power LEDs in crisp daylight white. They also have a very long expected lifespan of up to 50,000 hours. Additionally, the long life, Lithium Ion batteries (LifePO4), have a lifespan of up to 8 years and retain charge well due to their high capacity. The digital display on the solar uplight also shows the remaining percentage of charge which is very useful.
The Sollux LED Solar Uplight is expected to reach full charge after approximately 5-6 hours of full sunshine. As a result, at full charge it will last for up to 2 full nights. Even on particularly dull days, the Sollux will still illuminate, although they may not last the entire night cycle which often isn’t required.
