Decorative Faux Rock Doubles as a Solar LED Path Light

The Solar Rock Light from Smart Solar features a photocell sensor to automatically activate its warm white LED at nightfall. The Rock Light has an integrated solar panel at its top to collect sunlight during the day and charge the included Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. By making the Rock Light solar powered Smart Solar took the hassle out of setting it up and gave it versatility. There are no wires to worry about and you don’t have to set it up based upon where an available AC outlet is. Simply determine what area of your yard you would like to add light to at night and set the rock there; it’s that easy. Even better is that the faux rock exterior will help it blend seamlessly into the landscape of the yard making it unnoticeable and a welcome addition to the yards décor. Multiple Rock Lights along a pathway will help guide you and your guests or place it near a favorite daytime decoration to make it visible even at night. The Solar Rock Light is easy to move and it is important to remember that it requires sunlight to charge its Ni-MH batteries. If left in an area of the yard that does not get adequate daytime sunlight then the Solar Rock Light will provide little to no nighttime light. In an instance like this it is best to leave it in an area of the yard that gets the most amount of sun during the course of the day and move it at night as needed. Another charging option available is to remove the batteries and charge them via a traditional battery charger (sold separately) should you not wish to do so through the solar panel.

Koncept Technologies AR3100-C-SIL-DSK Z-Bar Mini LED Desk Lamp, Cool White - Silver

Looking for ways to cut down on your electric bill? One easy solution is more energy-efficient lighting. Old lamps with incandescent bulbs are incredibly inefficient and heat up very hot, very quickly. This eats up electricity when you consider how long you typically keep a lamp on throughout the day. Koncept Technologies has your solution in the Z-Bar Mini LED Desk Lamp with its award-winning 3-bar design. This sleek and modern desk lamp uses 28 cool white, energy-efficient LED bulbs that are also dimmable at the touch of a finger. A touchstrip at the head of this Gen 3 lamp allows the user to power on and off the Z-Bar Mini Desk Lamp and at the same time dim the lighting output to their desired brightness with a slide of the finger. In keeping with the energy-efficient theme, the Z-Bar Mini Desk Lamp consumes only 7 watts. To help put that into perspective, similar CFL lamps consume anywhere from 13 watts of energy and higher while incandescent bulbs are much higher. Along with being extremely energy-efficient, the Z-Bar Mini LED Desk Lamp was made with the environment in mind. Koncept Technologies has created this eco-friendly LED lamp from 39% recycled materials by weight, its aluminum housing is fully recyclable, uses water-based paint and LEDs do not contain mercury.

The Z-Bar Mini LED Desk Lamp uses a 3-bar design to give the user both maximum reach and flexibility when using it. Its LED head rotates in its socket, can sweep from side to side and point in any direction needed to provide light. The desk lamp has a 10 foot power cord that gives this desk lamp added flexibility to be used even if a power outlet isn’t in the immediate area. The frame of this lamp is constructed of aluminum and plastic and the LEDs used have a rated lifespan of 50,000 hours. The Z-Bar Mini LED Desk Lamp is C-UL-US certified. Read more

Deck Light Auto-Illuminates at Night and Increases Brightness when Motion is Detected

September 9, 2012 Leave a comment

The multi-talented Motion Sensing Deck Light from Xodus Innovations provides nighttime accent lighting with the ability to flood an area with light upon detecting motion. Like the Xodus Low Glow Deck Marker, this light uses a photocell sensor to automatically activate its low glow accent light at dusk and subsequently turn it off at dawn. However, it comes with the added feature of a 160° motion sensor that has a 30ft range. The motion sensor activates a bright LED upon detection to provide better lighting of the covered area. At the base of the Motion Sensing Deck Light are 2 switches to allow for customization depending upon the application of the light. The switches let you choose between high or low brightness and long or short duration. When long duration is set the bright LED will stay on for 5 minutes making it ideal for use where people may gather or hangout for an extended period of time, such as a porch. On short duration the bright LED will activate for 30 seconds making it more ideal on a walkway or stairs where people typically need additional lighting but do not linger. In both modes the sensor will check for motion before turning off to ensure people are not left in the dark. The light is powered by 3 C batteries which will last for an average of 1 year but that can vary depending upon settings and use. The light is weatherproof for outdoor use and it should be installed at a height tall enough to allow the LED to cover the amount of space desired. For instance, the closer it is to the ground the less surface area it will light up.
