This solar powered lampshade is huge in size and is designed to fit on the top of a round lamp post or column. It has a traditional appearance and provides an excellent level of light output. It will fit directly to the top of an existing round post or pole with a diameter of about 7.5cm (3").
This lampshade fitting is a great option for those who are looking for a traditional looking, bright, long lasting light to fit onto an existing pole. It attaches to a round post or round pole up to about 76mm (3") in diameter, which makes it ideal for retro-fitting. It's one of the best retro-fit lights that we offer, and also has user programmable features. This cast aluminium solar post/pole top light is fitted with dozens of super bright LED's which never need replacing. The multiple LED's provide almost 300 Lumens with a warm white light output. The light output is equal to about a 75w incandescent light bulb. The bulb does unscrew and is replaceable but typically last for many years. Different LED bulbs can be ordered and installed as an option. This light fitting also boasts a programmable timer control module, allowing for customizable illumination times. There are three powerful solar panels that are each built neatly and discretely into the top of the lampshade. When installed at a height of 3 or 4 metres the solar panels are barely noticeable and blend in within the design of the lampshade. The light will automatically illuminate when it gets dark, and typically illuminates for up to several hours. It has four toughened, clear, tempered glass sides. Colour of light output is warm white. Colour of product is black. Sold as a single unit.
This solar light can also be used to replace a lamp that is damaged or where the electric cable is defective. A popular choice with property developers and housing associations etc. This light is designed for more demanding applications such as public areas, parks, outdoor areas, car parks, communities, pedestrian zones, but could also be used for residential driveways, pathways etc.

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 set facing South at about a 45-60 degree 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.
