Steinel boosts light output of its solar-powered, sensor-controlled outdoor light

27 June 2014

Lighting expert, Steinel (UK) has increased the light output of its ultra-bright XSolar range of solar-powered external lights, now providing 150 lumens of light from a 1.2W LED

Steinel claims the XSolar range offers the latest in innovative outdoor lighting technology. "A rotatable solar panel draws free, clean energy from the sun, which is stored in a lithium-ion battery (lithium ferrum phosphor). The rechargeable battery powers bright, white LED lighting, while the built-in PIR sensor ensures illumination only when it is needed.
"Engineered for the highest efficiency – and now offering a greater light output than ever before – XSolar provides the opportunity to virtually remove the carbon footprint associated with external lighting. 

"Unlike many of its market competitors, XSolar can provide the powerful and efficient light output that’s needed for external lighting. Featuring 1.2W LED output, XSolar now achieves a lumen output of 150lms. The XSolar GL-S provides light for an area of up 20 m², while the XSolar L-S can illuminate up to 30 m²."
Peter Lawrence, Managing Director of Steinel (UK), comments: “The popular image of solar-powered lights may be that they can only provide a weak spread of dim light – but this is where XSolar is different. For the first time, it’s possible to take advantage of the energy from the sun to power external lighting and achieve an ultra-bright light output of 150lms.”
He adds: “With high-quality components and proven light outputs backed up by rigorous testing, XSolar is a long-lasting solution quite different from its low-spec competitors.”
