myGarden Pedestal post solar garden light review
You get what you pay for with these lights from Philips. Unlike the cheap imported imitation lights that have become so popular. You know the ones, they last one season then the rain and wind gets the better of them and they stop working. The myGarden Pedestal post will last season after season and the 5 year guarantee offers the peace of mind you need when spending this much on a product.
The myGarden pedestal post provides plenty of light for their size. Light can have different colour temperatures, indicated in units called Kelvin (K). Lamps with a low Kelvin value produce a warm, more cosy light, while those with a higher Kelvin value produce a cool, more energising light. This Philips lamp offers warm white light for a cosy atmosphere.They give you enough light to see, rather than just highlight a small spot (like many cheaper imported post lights), and they’re made from sturdy aluminium and look sleek amid the shrubbery with the anthracite finish.
At nearly 90cm tall they won’t get lost in the flowerbed and the larger-than-average solar panel on a cable can be placed wherever maximises exposure to rays. Philips says they’ll last five hours if charged in bright sun. Ours averaged about four hours in British “summer”, but that’s plenty of time for a barbecue. These also come in a cylindrical “flower” design and there are more powerful lights in the range if you need a flood-light effect.
Maximum light duration: 5 hours
Philips myGarden Solar lights are designed to make the most of the energy they receive from the sun, for light that lasts longer. Both the solar panel and LED light are of the highest quality to maximise sunlight collection. The length of lighting time depends on the amount of sunlight the solar panel receives. In good weather conditions, this light has a maximum light duration of 5 hours. Furthermore, energy-saving features such as an on/off switch or a motion sensor help to ensure that whatever the weather or time of year, you’ll always be able to have bright lights in your outdoor areas.
