One question we often receive is: How do I know if my solar lights are on or off?
Several of our Beckett products feature an on/off button, which causes some customers to wonder how they can if the product is turned on or off. This Q&A talks specifically about our Beckett Solar Powered Submersible LED Light Set, seen here.
Answer: When you first open the package, press the power button ON. In the OFF position, the push button will feel slightly taller/raised than when the button is in the ON position. Turn the solar panel down, facing the ground, or cover it with your hand. If the lights turn on then it is working properly.
There is no need to turn OFF the lights as they automatically turn on at night and back on during the day.
How Much Sunlight Should they Receive?
For optimal performance, the solar panel should receive 4-6 hours of direct sunlight on a daily basis.
If your lights stop working after you started using them, it’s likely that the solar panel battery is not receiving enough sunlight to recharge the battery. This is especially common during overcast, cloudy days when there is no direct sunlight. Reposition the solar panel where it may receive direct sunlight to properly recharge.
