- Good solar/battery powered security light for outside the bike shed?
No one? Surely this must be a common requirement?
Further browsing of Amazon reviews suggests this light is quite a bit better:
But there are still a few scathing reviews about quality etc.
And it doesn’t exactly meet the discrete requirement so the missus may be less than happy with it.Posted 4 years ago
Is there such a thing as a good, bright, battery or solar-powered security light that I can mount to cover the door of my shed?
Ideally I’d like one that looks relatively discrete and can be turned on manually when I want it (so I can see to oil my chain etc in the winter).
I’ve been browsing on Amazon and found this sort of thing:
Which looks alright, but apparently has “the same output as a 40W bulb” which seems fairly pitiful.Posted 4 years agobristolbikerMember
I built my own system in the end – bought a 12V solar panel, a charge controller for a street light and a 12V SLA battery with suitable capacity for my needs from EBay. Solar panel sits on the roof, the charger controller is a doddle to connect (6 connections to the panel, battery and load device) – happily runs a light on the shed, an AA/AAA battery charger, radio, mobile charger etc etc though voltage droppers, again from Ebay for a few quid each.Posted 4 years ago
