REPLACEMENT Solar 1.2-v (2500 mAH)  Ni-MH Batteries for our Solar LED Post Cap Lights

Replacement 1.2 volt Ni-MH Batteries for all of our Solar LED Light Post Caps

Two AA Ni-MH Rechargable Batteries ensure longer lighting power: up to 18-20 hrs of light when used with our Solar Post Caps. 

  • The Ni-MH Rechargeable battery comes individual or in a package of four.
  • These AA batteries have a 1.2 voltage @2500mAH.
  • They are replacement solar batteries and contains Nickel-Metal Hydride
  • Expected Lifetime: 1000 charge & discharge cycles. (Appox 4 years in Solar Post Caps)
  • They are excellent for using in both premium solar garden lights and other high output applications
  • Install batteries in the morning and allow them to charge throughout the day.
  • For non-solar applications, the batteries should be charged using a standard Ni-MH AA battery charger.  Standard charge time: 16 hours max @150mA.

Ni-MH – Nickel Metal Hydride is a newer battery technology. Many of the old Nicd batteries are now available in NiMH. These batteries have a much higher capacity then Nicd, so your device will have a much longer run time in between charges. NiMH batteries do not have a “Memory effect” so you can charge them even if they have only been used a bit. They are more expensive then Ni-CD, however you can typically get around 1000 life cycles. These batteries are also more environmentally friendly as they have nothing harmful in them. They are best used in high draining devices; Digital Cameras, Children’s toys, Walkmans, Discmans, Cellular phones, flash lights and more.  If used in slow draining devices like Solar Lighting, they will allow for longer time of lighting from the device.

Milliamp Hours (mAh) – Applies to how much energy the battery can store (capacity of the battery). The higher the mAh, the longer the battery will last before needing to be charged. One mAh is the equivalent to 1/1000 Amps. IE: 2.5 Ah = 2500 mAh.

Low self-discharge

What makes the Low Self-Discharge (LSD) Battery unique?

The key-advantage of the Low Self-Discharge (LSD) Battery compared to usual rechargeable batteries is its extremely low self-discharge.Once charged, Low Self-Discharge (LSD) Battery keeps its charge even if you store it for 12 or 24 months. ( 85 percent of the charge after 12 months, 70 percent after 24 months ). For a rechargeable battery this is a revolutionary advantage. No more worries about the state of charge of your battery. Just, charge them and keep them. Even after months you will still have an almost full battery.


Long Battery Cycle Life

In contrast to a disposable battery, the Low Self-Discharge (LSD) Battery can be used over hundreds of times. This saves the environment and your purse. Thus one Tenergy Low Self-Discharge (LSD) Battery saves the waste of 999 disposable batteries.

But also financially the Low Self-Discharge (LSD) Battery has benefits. Even if you consider the slightly higher cost of the Low Self-Discharge (LSD) Battery compared to a disposable battery and add the cost for the charger and the energy consumed by the charger, the investment for one Low Self-Discharge (LSD) Battery returns easily after a few charging cycles.

Imagine how much money you have spent for batteries in your life. Now there is an end to this spending.

INSTALLATION & TROUBLE SHOOTING INSTRUCTIONS: SOLAR POST CAPS

  • Remove the metal top by pressing inward on the side of the clear lens with holes, grasping the edge of the metal top and lifting it off.
  • Remove the 2 exsisting batteries.
  • Make sure the metal contacts are free of rust or corrosion.  If you need to clean the, you can use a nail file or sand-paper.  Clean till shiny.
  • Install replacement batteries
  • Turn the on/off switch to the OFF position to fully charge the batteries. Your solar post cap light will need 24-48 hours of sunlight to fully charge.
  • Replace the metal top by snapping it back onto the clear lens. (Be sure that the holes in the lens line up with the stubs on the metal top.)
  • Place your solar post cap light in direct sunlight for 24-48 hours with the switch in the OFF position to fully charge.
  • Once the batteries are fully charged, you can leave the switch in the ON position. The solar collector will charge the batteries during the daylight hours and power the light during darkness. Your solar post cap light will stay lit for an average of 6 to 8 hours during the night and turn off during the day, allowing the solar collector to re-charge the batteries.

If your solar post cap light becomes dim or does not light, simply turn the switch to the OFF position for 48 hours and allow the solar collector to fully re-charge the batteries.


 

If your solar post cap does not light or stops working, try these steps:

1. Remove the metal top by pressing in on the side of the plastic lens.

2. Turn the metal top upside-down and place it on a table so that the solar collector is covered (not exposed to the light). A light sensor inside will prevent it from lighting during the day.

3. Make sure the protective plastic tab between the batteries and the terminals has been removed.

4. Make sure the batteries are making contact with the terminals and the contacts are clean..

5. Make sure the on/off switch is in the ON position.

6. If your solar post cap light still does not light, place it in direct sunlight with the switch in the OFF position for 48 hours to fully recharge the batteries. 

7. If your solar post caps light still does not light, replace the batteries with AA rechargable solar batteries
