Solar Rope Lights

Solar powered rope lights are LED lights in a very durable and flexible tube. The energy from the sun is captured during the day, stored, and automically lights these attractive strings or ropes of lights at night.

You've probably noticed rope lights along the aisles of darkened movie theaters or in a passenger jet when the lights are turned down. They work great to outline paths but that is only one of their many uses.

Benefits of Solar Rope Lights

The attraction is that you can string them just about anyway you want, as long as the solar panel is in a good location to get the most sunlight. Since they are lights within a flexible plastic tube, they can be twisted and wrapped around trees or handrails...or even used to shape letters or numbers.

These lights will store the sun's energy during the day and use it to light up the rope lights at night..
