SL42 Solar 10W Area Light With Motion Sensor

  • Product Code: SL42
  • Availability: In Stock

This solar area light / street light is a 10 Watt (1000 Lumen) light fixture. All components of the light are built in to one, compact, easy to install unit. This LED area light can be wall mounted, or mounted to a 2.5" diameter round post or pole. The light automatically illuminates at 100% brightness, after 5 hours it will switch to 33% brightness mode and then turn to full brightness when motion is detected. From $399.99.

This fixture is designed for lighting up small areas. The lights consist of a discrete solar panel installed on the top on the fixture, with a Lithium battery installed inside, and LEDs on the under-side of the unit. The LEDs automatically activates at dusk at full brightness for five hours, and then switches to 33% brightness mode until motion or activity is detected. Once motion or activity is detected it switches to bright mode. When motion or activity cease about 30 seconds later it reverts to 33% brightness mode until motion is detected again. The under-side of the light has a motion sensor which detects motion or activity within its detection range. This light fixture can be installed on to any flat vertical surface, or a round post or pole up to 2.5" diameter. This light fixture may be a good choice for windy locations based on its compact design. It is suitable for favorable geoegraphic locations where solar insolation levels are good. Not recommended for Northern locations or where insolation levels are low. Color of product is silver. Color of light output is white.

Popular Uses

For small streets, small 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.

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.
