Solar lights like the picture above are in 90% of american gardens, they make gardens look awesome and these little solar lights actually double up as emergency lighting if the power goes out. These solar lights are cheap and normally only last a few years. A lot of people throw them away and just buy new ones… What a waste!

What many people don’t realize is that these solar lights usually come with very cheap/poor quality standard sized rechargeable batteries. These batteries are not usually great to begin with, but they deteriorate and lose their ability to hold their charge, very quickly. If you follow the simple tutorial below it will show you how to change the batteries in your solar lights. If you actually replace the batteries with some good quality rechargeable batteries, you’ll likely be blown away at home much brighter the lights are, and how much longer they burn bright throughout the night.
