Lead-acid battery about (1.2$/Ah-2$/Ah)

Lithium-Ion battery about (1.8$/Ah-2.2$/Ah)

Lithium Iron Phosphate battery about (0.5$/Ah-4$/Ah)

even LiFePo4 batteries have many types, have 0.5/Ah,0.8$/Ah, 1.5$/Ah, 2.7$/Ah,3$/Ah, and 4$/Ah, you will get what you pay for.

Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries are another great lithium battery technology but for a lower price. LiFePO4 batteries are manufactured with graphite anodes and lithium iron phosphate cathodes, immersed in a lithium salt electrolyte. This is the preferred lithium technology for solar street lights since it is cheaper than Li-Ion but still provides a maintenance-free option with high energy density.

While knowing about the different aspects to consider when choosing a battery. Nowadays, Solar Street Lights batteries prefer to use Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries (LiFePO4) and good quality batteries compared to Lithium-ion batteries. Lithium Iron batteries can be cyclically charged and discharged more than 2000 times, with long life, high safety performance, and strong resistance to low and high temperatures. On the basis of our selection of lithium batteries, the use of intelligent balancing technology and intelligent dual protection technology to make the battery life longer. But there are currently 4 grades of LiFePo4 batteries on the market, A-class LiFePo4 battery, B-class LiFePo4 battery, li-ion battery, and D-class LifePo4 battery(Already eliminated used LifePo4 battery).

1.A- class LifePo4 batteries(about 4$/AH 8-10 years life span)

A- Class LifePo4 battery refers to the battery capacity, thickness, length, width, and other parameters. The battery manufactured in accordance with the standard is called A class, and the solar street light life span can last 8-10 years.

2. B- class LifePo4 batteries. (about 2.7$/Ah-3$/Ah 5-8 years lie span)

refers to a slight gap in battery capacity, or the length, width, and thickness do not meet the order requirements, and the price is cheaper than product A. In addition, product A is generally placed in the warehouse. If it has not been shipped for 3-6 months, it is also called B class, the solar street light life span can last 5-8 years.

3.C- class LifePo4 batteries.(1$/Ah-1.5$/AH 1-3 years life span)

C-class LifePo4 batteries are indeed saying that the battery of product B has been placed in the warehouse for more than 8 months. If it has not been shipped, it can be called product C. The battery of product C is due to the long storage time. With the self-discharge and dust, water For the aging of gas, the performance of the C-type cell is generally only about 50-60% of the A-type cell of the same model. The safety of the C-type battery is poor. In addition, the C-type battery is not durable. After several cycles of charging, the performance is greatly reduced. the solar street light life span can last 1-3 years.

4.D-class LifePo4 battery(0.5$/Ah-0,8$/Ah 0.6 months-1year life span)

D-class LifePo4 battery(Already eliminated Or have been used LifePo4 battery also called a second-hand battery), Capacity, pressure drop, internal resistance, circulation, and other performance are in a very low and unstable state, not only can not meet the assembly requirements, but its service life is usually 6-8 months, you need to replace the battery, which is also the most popular Battery on the market. the solar street light life span can last 0.6-1 year.

And where did these eliminated LifePo4 batteries go? For what use? It is understood that many eliminated LifePo4 batteries have just flowed into the solar street light industry, Unfortunately, more than 90% of solar street light manufacturers on the market now use this LifePo4 battery that has been eliminated which causes another disadvantage to the solar street light market that already lacks standards. The industry is more uneven, and the gap between prices and quality is greater.

A-class LiFePO4 Lithium> B-class LiFePO4 Lithium>Ternary Li-ion Lithium> Broken Lithium detached from the electric car(D-class), over 80% of Solar street light, manufacturers use broken lithium batteries which are detached from Electricity cars, lifespan less than one year.

2. Solar street light pole price

How many types of Solar street light poles?

Solar street light pole type materials are different, there are galvanized, aluminum, straight square steel, round poles, tapered poles, ornamental poles, synthetic composite fiberglass, or concrete poles/posts. If you are looking for the best anti-rust pole, a hot-dip galvanizing pole is the best option. The product claims that it will not rust in 8-10 years. Among other pole types, a hot-dip galvanizing pole is the most expensive. Another option is the cold-dip galvanizing pole with an average anti-rust effect lasting 2-3 years. When buying a solar street light pole, we also need to consider its hurricane-resistant poles – solar lighting poles need very sturdy that they can withstand wind speeds of up to 175 miles per hour. This ensures that solar street lighting systems will still be up and running after the storm has passed; offering safety and security when you need it most.

Which solar street light pole type is the best?

Among the three solar street light poles mentioned above, we recommend that customers choose hot-dip galvanized light poles. Although the price is more expensive, it has a good anti-rust effect and hurricane resistance and will last longer. There is a kind of galvanized pipe paint, which usually rusts in half a year to a year. Just be careful in purchasing as many cold galvanizing on the market are now pretending to be hot galvanized.

How much does a solar street light pole cost?

Solar streetlights come with a wide variety of pole sizes which affects the cost. Below are some of the types of pole-height designs for solar streetlights design:

3m-4m about (15$/m-20$/m) hot-dip galvanized light Cone straight poles price is about(45$-80$), The thickness of lamp pole is 2.5mm, pole to pole distance is 15-20m, with a 30w-40w solar street light.

5m-6m about (15$/m-20$/m) hot-dip galvanized light Cone straight poles price is about (75$-120$), The thickness of lamp pole is 2.75mm pole to pole distance is 20-25m, with 50w-60w solar street light.

7m-8m about (17$/m-22$/m)hot-dip galvanized light Cone straight poles price is about (119$-176$), The thickness of lamp pole is 3mm, pole to pole distance is 25-30m, with an 80w-100W solar street light.

solar panel street light

There are 3 types of solar panels used in solar streetlights

High-efficiency Monocrystalline Double-sided Solar Panel (about 0.4$/W)

High-efficiency Monocrystalline(about 0.33$/W-0.37$/W)

High-efficiency Polycrystalline(about 0.30$/W-0.32$/W)

Why do we choose a Monocrystalline solar panel or a High-efficiency Monocrystalline Double-sided Solar Panel? By selecting a monocrystalline solar module, Solar-led Street Lighting International knows it will produce more energy, work better in high temperatures, and last longer than a polycrystalline panel.

The wider solar panel size means Large load power, and high capacity, which can increase the solar panel Efficiency, could offer enough power for bearing power, and is the insurance of brightness and longer backup time during cloudy days.

However, the low-quality solar panel size configuration is less than two and a half times the load power. If the cloudy days exceed more than the expected design requirements, the LED light would not work.

6. Solar street light Case and Bracket Material price

Quality solar street lights Case and Bracket Material(about 60-100$) use a customized die-casting aluminum mold due to its abundant benefits. The major advantages of die-casting aluminum mold are lightweight, strong, corrosion-resistant, and anti-rust. With its solid and firm materials, it can withstand a strong wind load of up to 130 MPH. It is also equipped with stainless steel screws that are used as fasteners to protect against any harsh weather conditions. Aside from that, the die-casting aluminum mold looks elegant and classy.

On the contrary, lower-quality solar streetlight cases and Bracket Materials(about $ 30-40) just use mold and rough craft. Usually, the installation requires the support of the knighthead, to recover the structure strength issue, making the installation more complex. It also lacks stability and cannot withstand strong wind.

7.  Solar street lights Warranty time

Usually, solar streetlights have a 2-year, 3-year, and 5-year warranty. The ultimate tip is to get the solar street lights with a longer warranty period as these street lights are usually equipped with better materials. On the other hand, solar street lights with a 2-year warranty are generally cheaper and suitable for rural roads or household use. Whereas, the 3-year warranty is 20% cheaper than the five-year warranty. But if you will install a solar street light in a place with high demand for light conditions, we recommend buying one with a five-year warranty for better materials.
