There are many different styles of solar light fixtures on the market today, but solar lighting posts share the same basic features, such as the key ones we’ve listed below.

Which type of solar lighting post you should buy is ultimately a matter of personal preference for each individual. However, we’d be happy to offer some perspectives for you to consider when deciding to buy.

Desired Height

Choose a height that suits the surroundings of the light post.
Make sure the solar light poles you choose are not so tall that they end up overwhelming the environment. You don’t want your solar light post sticking out like a thumb.
You also don’t want your solar light pole to be too short and hidden from your view. If it’s shorter than the rest of the surrounding area, it won’t serve its intended purpose as a source of illumination.

Preferred Color Temperature

The tint temperature of the lamppost lights will largely depend on what you want to achieve.
If you want a friendly environment and a cozy vibe, choose warm tones.
If your goal is to provide your space with really bright lighting, cool tones are the way to go.

As the name suggests, pot-based solar light posts come with planters or planters. These planter systems act as a base to provide support for your lamp post. To make this base stable, you’ll need to fill it with soil, rocks, or plants like a regular pot. The advantage of a pot-based solar light post is that it can be installed in the ground or on concrete.
On the other hand, the anchoring system of solar lamp posts comes with large wooden stakes for burrowing into the ground. For stability, you’ll have to bury it relatively deep so your light pole stays firmly in place. This type of light post is ideal for installation in gardens or in tight spaces where plant pots may not fit. Because they are also anchored deeply into the ground, they can withstand external elements such as strong winds better than flower pots.

Whether your energy source is electricity or solar, lower lumens result in dim lighting, while higher lumens produce brighter light.
