How Solar Powered Lights Work
Solar wall lights, like the more common solar pathway lights, take the heat that the sun provides and convert it to energy which is then used to power the lights.
This conversion is accomplished through the use of solar cells. The energy that is produced is then stored in batteries. How much energy will be converted and made available depends on how large the solar panels are. The brightness of the light and how long it will operate depends on how many batteries are included. The outdoor solar lights should also have a light sensor so the light will turn on automatically as the sun sets and turn off when the sun rises again.
