It is a myth that solar does not work when it is cloudy. It is a myth that solar lights only recharge in the summer or only when the sun is shining brightly. Solar technology has jumped ahead in leaps and bounds. Battery technology has improved significantly and LED's have become brighter and more efficient than ever before. The cost of solar cells has dropped substantially over the last few years so increasing solar panel wattages is no longer a huge expense. Couple these three factors together and you get affordable, reliable, efficient solar lights that can easily handle the geographic location of the United States and most other countries around the world. We have sold many of our products to satisfied customers in locations such as northern Canada and Alaska for example. So rest assured, solar power works just fine wherever you are!
