This professional bollard solar light has high capacity, long life batteries to last several years, not to be confused with lower cost solar lights that usually last not much more than a season. The batteries are replaceable being Lithium Ion as used in the latest power tools. These rechargeable batteries have no memory effect which means they will always retain a full charge unlike Nickel Cadmium batteries that will rapidly lose their storage ability. The LEDs will illuminate at full brightness for 6 hours when fully charged, and then reduce to 30% brightness to conserve battery life.
This garden bollard will emit a light of 96 lumens equivalent to a 20 watt halogen, or more than 20 times the light output of budget solar path lighting.

The highly sensitive large solar panels will charge on most days but on the cloudiest and wet of days in winter, there may be insufficient light to totally re-charge the batteries. It may take up to 2 days of bright weather to fully re-charge the batteries. If only partly charged the light will only stay on a for a few hours .
