Solar sign lighting
usually uses LED lights which are mounted directly below a small solar
panel. The solar panel charges the devices batteries - usually one or
two AA batteries. These batteries then provide the electricity to power
the light once the sun goes down. The majority of solar sign lights
will turn themselves on automatically at night, although some of the
higher quality models will also have other options for when they turn
on and how long the light will stay illuminated. Listed below are some
of the top models of solar sign lighting that are currently available
The Illuminator Solar
Address Lamp by Whitehall
Whitehall is a leading
manufacturer of solar outdoor lighting and produces the Illuminator
solar sign lighting. The Whitehall

to be seen at night, even from quite a distance.
This light will turn
on automatically when the sun goes down, and the batteries provide
enough energy to keep the light running all night long, until it
finally turns itself off at dawn. The only negative aspect to the
Whitehall Illuminator lies in its plastic construction.
This product is made out
of extremely lightweight plastic which seems quite flimsy and looks
could break very easily. Nonetheless, The Illuminator by Whitehall
solar address light can normally be purchased for under $40, which puts
in the same price range as most other types of solar sign
This light looks very
aesthetically pleasing, and overall is quite a
decent product for the price. Just don’t expect to last forever,
especially if you live in an area with extreme weather changes.
Frostfire LED Motion Sensor Light
The Frostfire Bright LED Solar Motion Sensor Light is a great addition to the entry of
your home, office, or anywhere where extra light and security could be
useful. It can also be used to light up the entrance of a garden shed,
garage, or anywhere else you need a bit of extra light when passing by.
The light uses a 0.6W
solar panel to charge the light during the day, and then at night the
light automatically updates once motion is detected.
It will switch itself off
again after 30 seconds if no further motion is detected. When motion is
not detected, and it’s after dark, the light will stay in a dimmed
mode, until the sun rises the next morning.

light, activation key and two screws and wall plugs, which makes the
installation easy as pie. There are no cables or batteries to worry
about. The battery needed to power the light comes included and can be
charged only with solar power. The durable metallic finish ensures a

Clear Lake Enterprises
Solar Sign Light
a very small company, but they produce quite a high quality solar
real estate sign light. This particular light is quite cheap compared
to most other products in this category and can usually be purchased
for around $15. One of the biggest advantages of this particular
product is that it is constructed of stainless steel, which makes it
last much longer and ensures that the product will never rust.
However, there are also a
few negatives that can be associated with the Clear
Lake Enterprises light as
well. First off, the light is
designed to be installed by simply using 3M
double sided tape pads, which makes the product quite easy and quick to
mount and install, but the tape isn’t sufficient to keep this light
mounted for long periods of time or in very severe weather.
Another thing is that this
light only uses five LEDs, so it will not emit nearly as much light as
many of its competitor’s lights. The only other negative is that this
product is quite sensitive to other forms of light, so it will not turn
itself on automatically if it is near any other sort of lighting, such
as street lights. Nonetheless, this product is still quite a bargain
considering its low price.
