Why are my landscape lights producing a dull light?
I by the skin of one's teeth installed 7 landscape lights and 2 spotlights this weekend and the light is very dull. I am using a 300 watt box and I ran about 250 feet of chain. the landscape lights are 10 watt and I believe the spotlights are 50 watt. Thanks!
Either your run is too great or the gauge of wire that you've used for the length of run is too small. 250 feet is a pretty eat one's heart out run. If you can make two runs of 125 feet you may see quite an improvement.
You may be gaining obstruction with those long wire runs. Try splitting them into shorter runs if possible with another transformer and less lights on each. for ex. 3 or 4 landscape and 1 speckle on each cir-cut. Hope this helps
Either your run is too dream of or the gauge of wire that you've used for the length of run is too small. 250 feet is a pretty crave run. If you can make two runs of 125 feet you may see quite an improvement.
If your 300 watt box is at the edifice and you ran 250 feet from that, I would instead bring the box as close to the start of the run as you can and then to the lights. Use in ground 12 limit Romex.
In terms of light out-put,how do solar landscape lights compare to low voltage lights?
I have been looking at Malibu Solar landscape lights and heed that they post no information as to how much light they put out. They have some solar lights that have two LEDs and some with three LEDs. How do these compare with the standard 4 watt low voltage lights?
About the same but more importantly for solar non-wired lights, what is the for the most part run time? Some cheap ones will last only 4 hours while others can make it all night.
what is the best solar powered landscape light?
I fancy to know what will provide excellent spotlighting for the landscape and will hold full charge providing great lighting throughout the night-time. Also what is easy to install. I want the most for my money
NONE ! Penitent to put it that way but there is no such thing a a good solar landscape light. Even though other will probably chime in saying they have some they like. You need to go with a 12 volt system which you can fix in place yourself or the 120 volt which you will need an electrician.
