The Gama Sonic Aurora solar outdoor light fixture model GS-124FPW is the perfect energy-saving and money-saving replacement for electric or gas-powered outdoor lighting. This solar lantern with a modern design makes a stylish addition to your home's exterior. It includes all the hardware for three styles of mounting: as a wall sconce; on flat surfaces, such as pillars or columns, measuring at least four inches long and wide; or at the top of a three-inch-diameter lamp post. No electrical wiring is required. The Aurora's replaceable Lithium Ion battery pack charges when sunlight hits the fixture's integrated solar panel. At dusk, six bright-white LEDs will turn on automatically and shine at a brightness of 50 lumens for up to eight hours on a full solar charge (generally it takes about eight hours of sunlight on the solar panel to achieve a full solar charge of the battery pack after it's been completely run down). Gama Sonic's patented cone reflector enhances the glow of the Aurora's light. The monocrystalline silicon solar panel is protected by weather-resistant, cleanable tempered glass that helps ensure long-lasting reliability. The light's replaceable, plugged battery pack is good for about 1,000 charges. Recharging speed varies based on weather conditions, but generally it takes about six hours of sunlight on the solar panel to achieve a full solar charge of the battery pack after it's been completely run down.
