Solar Lights & wintertime
January 4, 2008 11:33am CST
This is my first winter having solar lights. I bought these early spring to light my garden at night. Now I just unburied them from the snow we have had. Do the batteries freeze in the cold causing them to stop working? Will the freezing temps damage the batteries or the insides of the lights at all? Should I remove them as we don't get a lot of sun anyhow? I need help. Hahahaha!! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

this is a clever idea! and environmentally friendly as well. what with all the hoo ha on carbon footprints these days. I guess if they were made for a temperate country, they should be hardy enough to survive winter in the garden? i suppose they shoudl still work.

I can't help with a lot of these questions, as of course, I dont have the experience of snow. I do think the stores should not be selling solar lights if the batteries are going to be ruined by freezing temperatures, as they should know what the weather is like in your area. I think solar lights are a fantastic idea. There are gaining more & more popularity in Australia due to our excessive sunlight. We have a solar water heater.
