How to Maintain Your Gama Sonic Solar Lights

Posted in: , | January 28, 2021

The beautiful thing about solar lights, other than their sustainability and longevity, is how easy it is to maintain your Gama Sonic solar lights. As long as they are taken care of properly, your outdoor solar lights will serve you for years to come, giving you peace of mind and ridding you of unnecessary gas and electric bills.

To get the most out of your outdoor solar light, knowing the simple ways to take care of them will be extremely important. (If you are concerned about your Gama Sonic lights during a harsh winter, visit our previous blog post on How to Maintain Your Solar Lights in the Cold Months.) No matter the weather, the following are the steps you can take to best maintain your Gama Sonic Solar lights.

Solar Panel Cleaning

Of course, each solar light has a solar panel that converts the sun’s energy into the electrical power needed to charge the light’s battery. There are many different kinds of solar panels, each with distinct advantages and disadvantages, which we discuss in a previous blog post. For enhanced lifespan, efficiency, and durability, Gama Sonic solar panels are often covered by tempered glass, such as on the Premier Garden Dual Light – Set of 2.

However weather-resistant a solar panel may be, dust, pollen, and other detritus may collect on top of it and impact the panel’s efficiency. Therefore, take care to occasionally wipe down the panel with clean water and a soft cloth or sponge.

Battery Replacement

Another effortless step to ensuring your Gama Solar outdoor lights never weaken is to replace the battery every 2.5-3 years, a typical lifetime of a solar light battery. Should you notice that your light is not functioning as well even though it has had a full charge in the sun, the battery is the first thing to check.

Replacing the battery requires locating the solar light’s battery compartment, opening it to remove the batteries, and exchanging them with the appropriate battery type and number. The Victorian Bulb Solar Light with GS Solar Light Bulb, for instance, operates on a lithium-ion battery pack (Li-Ion 3.2V/3000ma).

Bulb Replacement

Like solar panels, solar light bulbs are varied, both in their technology and the type of light they emit. As featured in the Everest Solar Lamp Post and the Solar Garden Light Shepherd HookGama Sonic’s solar LED light bulb will give off a pleasant glow for years, but you must replace these patented bulbs after a long 10-12 years.

When replacing your solar light’s bulb, remember to decide on the warmth of your light, be it Warm White or Bright White–this will completely change the outdoor space’s mood.
