Some of the buyers are easily be misled by the below four misunderstandings when choosing suitable solar lights for their projects .

The 1st Misunderstanding: 

The lamp with the same appearence is same solar street lights . Smart solar street lights always comes with four main parts , samrt energy pack , light body , lighting part and also controlling software .


So with the same frame doesn’t mean the light has the same functions and quality.

The 2nd Misunderstanding: 

The lamp with the same specifications is same lights .

There are many solar street lights factories in China, these factories have different market positioning (Low-end, mid-range, high-end), and they use different materials quality standards.

For example, the battery, specifications on all datasheets are LiFePO4, but some factories use A grade, some use B grade, and others use C or D grade. The controller, both are the smart type, some suppliers use MPPT type, the others use PWM type, and even both controllers are MPPT type, the quality and stability can be different.

On the other hand, there are a few factories list the fake specifications on the datasheets, the products they produce are completely different from what they promised.

So with the same specifications on the datasheet doesn’t mean the lamps are the same.


The 3rd Misunderstanding: The wattages Equals to  brightness.

Many customers only pay attention to the power (in wattage) of the lamps when tehy choose all in one solar street lights .However , wattage means nothing when talking about integrated solar street lights , we should care more about lumen rather than wattage .

Different lamp beads and production processes will make the lamps have different light effects. Take an exzample :The same 50W lamp, some factories may only have about 4000 lumens, but some factories can reach about 6000 lumens. Nomo hypo series can reach around 8000lumen since we choose the highest efficiency leds philips 5050 as our light sourse , which can reach up to 180lumen per watt .



The 4th Misunderstanding: Cheaper prices  means cost effective 

Cheaper prices does  not always mean  cost-effective, usually it means “ cheaper quality ”. 
Most all in one solar street lamp  manufacturers offer suitable products at reasonable prices. yet  there are a few factories just aim at one time transfer busines. In that way They  use very cheap parts for their products,then sell to customers at very low prices. Their solar lamps may work normally  only for 2 or 3 months and then dead . When you require them to offer aftersale service  they just disappeared.Price and qulaity are both important factors when you choose sef cleaning solar street lights supplier  Solar street lamps Normaly can work for many years ,however for these cheap ones solar lights  , you get nothing but problems togther with   high maintenance costs and worse is  reputation losses.  In a word ,cheaper prices  lead to  loss of customers.


Here is our advice to help you away from these tricks 

1. Visit the factory

If possible please visit the factory, so that you can see the actual production process; and to see if there is a standardized production management system. You can also get more details about the supplier’s strengths and principles through face-to-face communication.


2. Test samples

By testing samples, you will know the differences in quality, stability, brightness and so on.


3. View warranty policy carefully

If the company believes in the quality of its products, they can provide better warranty terms. And at the same time, they will pay more attention to quality control during the production process.
