  • Product Code: SL08 Street Light
  • Availability: In Stock
    PDF Data

This compact, easy to install LED street light is ideal for small streets, parking lots, arenas, open areas etc. Pole, post or wall mount. Automatically illuminates at dusk at 33% brightness and reverts to 100% brightness when motion is detected. Prices from $699.99.

This compact, self-contained light fixture is offered in two different models, our basic and hybrid model. The lights consist of a discrete solar panel installed on the top on the fitting, with a lithium battery installed inside, and a cluster of Samsung® SMD/LED's on the under-side of the unit. Also on the under-side of the light is a PIR motion sensor. When it detects activity within the light switches to full brightness mode and when the area is free of activity it will revert back to its ambient mode at approximately 1/3rd power. Our hybrid model is designed to use electricity and solar; the light will switch to 220v AC power to enable the lamp to illuminate if the battery supply is weak. The light may be a good choice for windy locations based on is compact design. Choice of five different models. Color of product is gray. Color of light output is white.

Popular Uses

For small streets, parking lots and general security lighting in and around commercial buildings there is an increasing need for a solar powered solution. For customers seeking a fast, efficient, convenient solution to area lighting.

Technical Specifications

Custom colours available for special quantity orders.
Weather rating is I.P. 65
Ideal operating temperature charging range is 0 deg C. to +60 deg C. (-32 deg F. to +140 deg F.).
Ideal operating temperature discharging range is -20 deg C. to +60 deg C. (-4 deg F. to +140 deg F.).
Ideal storage temperature range is 0 deg C. to +45 deg C. (-32 deg F. to +113 deg F.).

Light Fixture
A passive infra-red motion sensor is built into the fixture on all models.
Motion sensor detection range (at ground level) is up to 20' forward and with a 90 degree detection spread, up to 13' left/right.
The detection range will vary depending upon a few factors including fixture mounting height, local ambient temperature etc.
All SMD/LED's have a color temperature of 6000-6500k.
Average light intensity is 30 Lux with a 120 degree viewing angle projected downwards and outwards. Zero light pollution.
The hybrid model has a pre-wired electrical connection for 110-240v AC power, for use as a back-up if the battery pack has insufficient charge.
The hybrid model is suitable for the USA, Europe, UK and other countries that use 110-240v AC.
The hybrid model will only use AC power to provide illumination in the rare occasions where the battery supply cannot supply enough power.
The AC power does not recharge the battery as that is the purpose of the system being solar powered.
The hybrid model is fitted with multiple Samsung® SMD/LEDS at 8w power and provides 880 Lumens at full brightness and 290 Lumens in ambient mode. That is equal to approximately 160 watts of incandescent lighting.
The basic model is fitted with multiple Samsung® SMD/LEDS at 5w power and provides 550 Lumens at full brightness and 180 Lumens in ambient mode. That is equal to approximately 100 watts of incandescent lighting.
The basic model is approx. 21" x 12" x 2" LxWxD.
The hybrid model is approx. 16.5" x 12" x 2" LxWxD.
The short support arm is approx. 4.5" long on all models.

Integral high capacity Lithium battery pack pre-installed.
The system has built-in charge control regulation with over-charge and discharge protection.

Solar Panel
The basic model is fitted with a 15 Watt solar panel.
The hybrid model is fitted with a 15 Watt solar panel.

Short support arm and mounting bracket is included.
Easy installation onto a round pole.
The clamp/bracket can be attached to a round pole of 2" diameter up to 3.5" diameter.
The basic model can be installed up to a height of approx. 10'.
The standard model can be installed up to a height of approx. 13'.
The advanced model can be installed up to a height of approx. 16'.
The superior model can be installed up to a height of approx. 20'.
The hybrid model can be installed up to a height of approx. 13'.
Typical spacing for most models would be about every 30' to 50'.
The superior model can be spaced about every 50' to 70'.
Can also be fitted to a square post or to a solid vertical surface such as a wall or side of a building.
The 'U' section of the clamp is removable to allow for direct surface mounting.


Two year warranty*.
Additionally, unlimited, lifetime technical support is available for all warranty registrations.

Please Note: This product is a special order and is non-returnable except in the event of a fault (during its warranty period) when the product, once returned will be repaired or replaced.


The solar panel must be installed in a location where it can receive full direct sunshine (when available) and usually set facing South at an appropriate angle (where adjustment options allow). The solar panel must not be installed in a shaded or part shaded location and never indoors. The standard specifications of the system (particularly the solar panel Wattage and battery capacity) may need to be adjusted. These components are determined by your geographic location, power consumption (LED Wattage) and the total amount of hours of illumination time required. Such changes to the standard specifications may increase or decrease the cost shown. Please contact us for more information or assistance. The illumination time is estimated and subject to various factors including (but not limited to) geographic location, seasons, temperature, weather conditions & location of product etc. The illumination time of most solar lights can reduce during winter months when the weather is poor and the days are shorter. During this time insolation hours decrease accordingly. Shorter illumination time due to one or more of the above factors does not define the product as being ‘defective’ or ‘not as described’. All solar lights must be used in a completely dark location at night time otherwise they may not illuminate. Nearby strong lighting sources or ambient lighting may affect the operation of a solar light. This does not define the product as being 'defective' or 'not as described'. Please note, if you do not install or use this product for several months the battery may discharge naturally on its own. By allowing a battery to deep discharge it may cause irreversible damage as the battery may then lose the ability to recharge or hold a full charge. Although unlikely, we reserve the right to supply this product with any minor alterations or minor changes to the specifications (shown above by text description or by photographs) due to different supplies or product batches received, incorporating such product changes made by the manufacturer, without further notice. Descriptions, specifications and photographs are updated regularly but may not be current when minor changes to a product have only recently been made.
