If there are still thunderstorms, it is necessary to check and maintain the battery regularly. The battery loss may be due to the battery’s long use time and normal wear and tear; it may also be caused by the construction party’s cutting corners during the original construction, the low quality of the purchased cheap product; or the installation location is not very reasonable, and the green vegetation is used as a feeder.
At this time, it is generally sufficient to replace the battery with a new one or cut off the green plants to cover it. The lithium battery whose capacity cannot meet the usage requirements should be replaced in time to avoid affecting the normal operation of solar-led street lights.

Step 2 – Integrated solar street lights pole dig preparation
Solar street lights can be installed virtually in any location. Find a level area to erect the pole on. Check the solar street light installation user manuals first, which will inform you of unique features and installation requirements.
Before installation, a solar street light pole requires a foundation. The best choice is a metal street light installation cage embedded in concrete. You can purchase or build this metal cage if you have a production facility.
According to the height of the pole and the weight of the solar street light, we determine the length, width, and height of the hole, for example, for a 6m pole, the dig hole long:50 cm, Wide:50cm, the depth:80cm, and ensure there aren’t any obstructions such as rocks or pipes.
Tips of the Foundation Of The Pole
The steel cage that serves as an anchor should have four metal bolts. Most solar street light poles have bases with holes to fit through these bolts. The cage is secured with cement. You need to simply anchor the cage with some cement at the bottom of the hole. You can then fill the hole when you’re done with the installation.
Step 3- Injected cement and put the flange in the cement.
- Please make sure the flange Is flat.
2. After 3 days, the cement is dry.
Step 4-Install the solar street light on the pole in advance.
Step 5-Put the pole into a flange with screws
There are also have 4 Tips When Installing Integrated Solar Street Lights
Make sure the solar street light panel faces the sun on both sides
Before you install your first All-in-One Solar Street Light, make sure to follow these tips so you won’t have a problem with its operation.
As we all know. In the northern hemisphere, the sunshine rises from the south, but in the southern hemisphere, the sunshine rises from the north.
That is why we need to design solar panels to fold and unfold in order to ensure the solar panel face the sun on both sides of the road,
In the northern hemisphere, we can unfold on the north side of the road, fold on the south side of the road
In the southern hemisphere, we can unfold on the south side of the road, fold on the north side of the road
The great thing about this foldable model is you can flexibly adjust the solar panel to face the sun on both sides of the road.
2. Make sure that the solar panel orientation faces the sun at 2:00 pm
As the solar panel is a fixed component, make sure that when you install the solar street light, the solar panel orientation faces the direction of the sun at its highest peak. This is from around 12:00 to 2:00 pm.
During these hours, the sun’s intensity is very high and your solar panel can receive as much energy as it can. To make your solar street light work more efficiently, be sure to set the direction of the panel in such a way that it faces the sun at 2 pm.
3. Pole does not exceed the lamp too long, in case of shadows on a solar panel to Keep a Short Distance Between the Pole and the Lamp
This tip is to maximize the efficiency of your solar panel so that the battery can be fully charged.
4. Trees or buildings do not exceed lamps too high in case of shadows on solar panel
Nowadays, our country pays more attention to greening projects, leading to many solar streetlight projects that will follow greening projects. However, in summer thunderstorms, the trees near the solar streetlights are easily blown down by strong winds, destroyed, or directly damaged. Therefore, the trees around the solar streetlight should be pruned regularly, especially in the case of the wild growth of plants in summer. Ensuring the stable growth of trees can reduce the damage to solar streetlights caused by dumping trees.
To ensure that the panel does not get any shadow from any object including the pole.
How It Should Work After Installation
After you install you are all in one solar street light, it should be able to automatically switch on at dusk and switch off at dawn. It must also work automatically from dim to full brightness, depending on your specified time schedule profile setting.
For its original factory setting, the solar street light would automatically dim or decrease its intensity to 30% of its full brightness when it does not detect any passerby.
What an integrated solar street light is, is really an amazing innovation of the traditional solar street light. It’s very easy to install and needs less of your time and energy. I hope this article has cleared some clouds of confusion on how to install integrated all-in-one solar street lights.
