Split Solar Street Light VS. Integrated Lights?

Split Solar Street Light VS. Integrated Lights?

Solar street lights have 2 types, split solar street lights, and integrated solar street lights, The main differences are the component parts, price, installation complexity, technical parameters, scope of application, maintenance, etc, there are no absolute advantages and disadvantages, according to the use of occasions, we can choose according to the use of the occasion.

Let’s Learn more about the difference between integrated and split solar street lights as below.

What are the differences between integrated and split solar street lights?

1, Components different

Split solar street light consists of the battery, LED lamp head, photovoltaic panel, controller, and lamp post, and must be equipped with a lamp post, the battery should be buried in the ground, through the lamp post wire connection. Integrated solar street light integrated with the battery, LED lamp head, controller, and solar panels together to the lamp head inside.

2, Different price

Due to design reasons, integrated solar street light panel power and battery capacity are generally less than the split type, so the cost is lower, so the same specifications, integrated solar street lights than the split type street light are much cheaper.

3, Installation of different

The integrated solar street light installation is more convenient and easy, usually within 5-15 minutes. while the split solar street light needs to be assembled, threading and wiring, installing the battery bracket, light head, making battery pit, etc., relatively complex.

4, Application different

Split solar street light has a wider scope of application and can be used in wider roads and highways, squares, districts, industrial parks, etc. The integrated solar street light is usually used in urban roads, streets, alleys, districts, factories, industrial parks, and rural roads.

5、Maintenance Different

When the solar street light does not work, split solar street light manufacturers need to send the technicians to the local maintenance, checking with the battery, photovoltaic panels, LED lamp head, wires, etc. one by one to solve the problem; integrated solar street lamps just need to unload the lamp head and send it back to the factory directly or instead of the battery or controller by yourself.

Split Solar Street Light VS. Integrated Lights?

Choose all-in-one solar lamps VS. split lamps.

Maybe it is hard to decide whether to choose all-in-one solar lamps or split lamps, today, we will conclude why to choose all-in-one solar street lights rather than split lamps.

After analyzing the sales data, we have found out that clients prefer to integrate into one solar street light instead of a split or semi-split type solar light. Customers are more likely to purchase integrated solar street LED lights, even if most of them have purchased split-type lights before.

The research data can help you know the market trends to choose a better type of solar street light for your future project or invest in your business.

Following are the 3 reasons why choose All in one solar street light

(1): Integrated solar street light installation is straightforward and saves time

Integrated all-in-one solar lamp installation is very simple and quick. It only takes 5 minutes for skilled workers to complete all of the installation processes. If you have a large solar street light project, and split solar street light requires a gel battery pit, and gel batteries are hanging on sole light poles. This complicated installation method is a big problem when the construction project deadline is rushed.

Integrated all-in-one solar street lights can reduce installation errors, fast construction speed, and save labor costs, which is a comparative advantage to split-type solar lamps.

(2): The total cost of integrated solar streetlights is low

The total cost involves two parts. one is the cost of labor. From the analysis of the above, we know that the longer the installation time, the higher the labor costs. So the contractor will tend to choose a lower-cost way.

Another part of the cost relates to solar street light batteries. The gel battery for split-type solar outdoor lights is bulky and Polluted by the environment, not clean energy.

For example, 100W split street lights need to use 180AH batteries, which must match with 330W solar panels, while 100W all-in-one solar street lights just need to use a 39Ah LiFepo4 battery and 140W solar panel.

We can clearly see that the same wattage of solar panels used for integrated solar-based lights is at half price compared to split type.

(3) Integrated solar streetlights are more intelligent

Integrated solar lamps generally use intelligent MPPT controllers. Based on big data analysis and human flow judgment, the controller may adopt the modes of time control and/or human induction mode intelligently. When people are close to the light, the light is full power 100% and when there is no movement, the light power can adjust to 30% automatically. But for split-type solar street lights, 100% luminance output configuration, almost half of the night is a waste.


In summary, integrated solar streetlights are becoming more and more popular, and will become a trend in the future. Compared with split solar street lights, they are more worthy of investment.
