The Gama Sonic GS-98S Royal solar lamp post and lamp head is the perfect energy-saving and money-saving replacement for outdated electric or gas-powered outdoor lighting, and its New Orleans-streetlamp design will add style and distinction wherever it's installed. Standing 87 inches tall, the rust-resistant cast-aluminum lamp post and lamp head with a powder-coated weathered-bronze finish requires no electrical wiring to set up. Just secure the post to a concrete pad with the included bolts or use Gama Sonic's EZ-Anchor system (sold separately) for in-ground installation. That's it. The sun will do the rest. The internal Lithium Ion battery pack charges when sunlight hits the lighting fixture's integrated solar panels. At dusk, seven bright-white LEDs will turn on automatically and shine through the beveled glass panes at a brightness of 120 lumens on a full solar charge. The fixture is designed for dusk to-dawn-operation after its battery has been fully charged during the day. If the panels aren't getting enough direct sun to charge the battery to capacity, switch LED-brightness mode to low to extend nightly light duration. In either mode, Gama Sonic's patented cone reflector enhances the glow and multidirectional light dispersal. The unit's four monocrystalline silicon solar panels are 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. With proper setup for optimal sun exposure, a sunny day without cloud cover should be sufficient to provide a full recharge. Recharging speed will vary based on weather conditions, but no charging will occur if direct sun does not shine on the solar panels. Do not locate the lamp post in a shaded area. At Gama Sonic, our goal is to build the world's best solar lights.
