Solar-powered lighting consists of a solar panel or photovoltaic cell that collects the sun's energy during the day and stores it in a rechargeable gel cell battery.
The intelligent controller senses when there is no longer any energy from the sun and automatically turns the LED light on using a portion of the stored energy in the rechargeable battery.

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are a solid-state, directional light source that produce light very efficiently, making it ideal for solar powered lighting applications. Although most people think of LEDs as indicator lighting, there are types of LEDs specifically designed for general illumination applications.
