Hybrid solar light has a 2X bright 1Watt LED. It stores sunlight in a battery and also has a back up battery rated with a service life of seven years.
It is guaranteed for life and the full charge is stated to last for a period of 16 hours of run time. It is waterproof and it is fully charged when supplied. The light intensity does not vary with high temperature and it is durable.
A single charge is retained for about 3 years. It is supplied in a pack of two.
- Long lasting power is useful for a flash light.
- Charging under sun or in room light creates high scope for utilization of low power light and diffuse solar radiation also.
- Water proofness promises its use in all weather conditions.
- Rate of self-discharge of the battery in this case is very low.
- Also the coefficient of variation of the light intensity with temperature is very low.
- The 1 watt LED is the main reason for the very low power consumption and hence the longer period of service life.
- One Watt power of the flash light is very low and hence intensity of light will be very less.
- 11 year period of continuous use of the LED has to be proved only by its use. The utilization of the diffuse sunlight will be the same as that of a solar cell and hence limited.
