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, but often don’t work so well, and when they do, they 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, 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 brightly throughout the night. They will literally be better than when they were new! The crazy this is – decent solar light rechargeable batteries don’t cost much anyway, so it’s a no-brainer. Just open up your lights, check what size batteries are inside. Then purchase and replace with some better ones. More information here: DIY Quick Fix For Solar Lights
