You can light up your driveway, patio and garden with the hanging outdoor solar lanterns. The lights are powered by the sunlight and they have a subtle and warm accent while lighting your home and it is at the same time environmental friendly. If you want to use solar powered lanterns on your home, you should learn how they work. Solar lights contain the solar cells, rechargeable battery, Ni-Cad, photoresistor and Led lights. Solar cells produce the energy and they charge the battery in the day. The solar powered lights do stop to produce the energy when the night comes and when the photoresistor detects that there is no light, it is going to activate the battery while turning Led lights on.
