Do solar lanterns work ?

Solar lantern is a kind of decorative lamp powered by solar energy. It converts solar energy into electricity through solar panels and stores it in the built-in battery to achieve lighting effects. Solar decorative lanterns are beautiful in appearance, and usually adopt various design elements, which can add decoration and ornamental value to the scene. Solar lanterns are mostly used in outdoor spaces, such as gardens, courtyards, terraces, etc., to create a warm and romantic atmosphere for the environment by emitting light at night. Solar lanterns not only provide lighting functions, but also have the advantages of environmental protection and energy saving, without electricity supply, reducing dependence on traditional energy sources. In addition, it also has an automatic sensing function, which can automatically turn on and off according to the light without manual operation. Solar powered decorative lanterns are a popular choice for outdoor decor these days, as they are both beautiful and functional.

Ⅰ.Classification and structure of solar lanterns

Solar lanterns can be divided into the following types according to their different classifications and structures:

1. Traditional solar lanterns: Traditional solar lanterns generally consist of solar panels, energy storage batteries, LED lights and control systems. Solar panels are responsible for converting solar energy into electricity, which is stored in energy storage batteries. LED lights are powered by energy storage batteries for lighting, and the control system can adjust the brightness of the lights and the time of switching lights according to needs.

2. Separate solar lantern: The separate solar lantern installs the solar panel and the lamp separately, which makes the layout and installation of the lamp more flexible and convenient. The solar panel is connected with the energy storage battery and the lamp through the wire, and the electric energy converted from the solar energy is stored by the battery for the lamp to use.

3. Full-integrated solar lantern: The full-integrated solar lantern is designed to integrate solar panels into the lamp body, so that the entire lamp has a self-charging function. It is usually composed of solar cells, energy storage batteries, control circuits and LED lights. The overall structure is compact and easy to install and use.

4. Multiple solar lanterns: Multiple solar lanterns combine multiple solar panels and energy storage batteries to improve the efficiency of solar energy collection and storage by connecting them in parallel or in series. This design can be used in places with higher energy demands, such as large open plazas or parks.

In addition, according to the use of solar lanterns, they can also be divided into outdoor solar lanterns and indoor solar lanterns. Outdoor solar lanterns are generally weather-resistant, water-resistant, and shock-resistant for use in outdoor environments. Indoor solar lanterns are mainly used for indoor lighting, and the general structure is relatively simple.

It should be noted that the above is only classified according to the common classification and structure. With the continuous development and innovation of technology, the classification and structure of solar lanterns will also be more diverse and rich.
