    Hello everyone..
    Any body having idea regarding solar energy can be used for garden lighting. If any you know gadgets through which i can convert solar energy and storing it and using it at night for garden lighting. Please share your idea with me.

    The cheap way it to start out with a kit of "stake lights" that each have their own panel and LED's.

    The "full blown" way, is to have a central PV panel, batteries, and run wire all over like transformer lights.

      2 deep cell 6V golf batteries hooked up to a PV panel using 12V LED garden lights.

      2 deep cell 6V golf batteries hooked up to a PV panel using 12V LED garden lights. is what I would recommend.
      The problem with those cheap solar garden lights is they are very dim. The LED lights are much brighter.

              Try amazon.com

              The solar garden lights are easy to assemble and come with their own panels that get charged during the day and turn on in the nights.

              You can find different types of solar powered garden lights on Amazon.com
