Solar fairy lights and all other solar products need to have a little love and care from time to time to keep them working perfectly. It’s well worth the effort, and your solar lights will keep shining as long as you keep a couple of things in mind. Regardless of whichever solar light you have, the solar panel needs to be dirt free. Wiping over the solar panel with a clean, damp cloth will ensure the maximum charge is achieved by the battery whenever the sun shines. Next, ensure that the solar panel is placed where it will receive the maximum charge from the sun.
Contrary to popular belief, solar panels will not charge through glass (think conservatories here!) nor will they charge via artificial light (a table lamp, for example). If the panel has a stake, push the full length of the stake into soft ground, to keep the panel securely in place, and remember, pots and tubs work just as well as soil in the ground, so regardless of the size of your outdoor space, you can all enjoy the benefits of solar lights!
