Solar Lights for Patio Umbrellas


When looking for some soft lighting for your outdoor space, an easy solution is to look at Solar Lighted Patio Umbrellas.  These will give you some light to play cards, games, eat dinner or just sit around and chat.  These type of lights will not turn your outdoor space into daylight.

Lets look at these three examples.


Rectangular Solar Powerd Umbrella10′ x 6.5′ Rectangular Solar Powered LED Lighted Patio Umbrella


The Rectangular Umbrella will have four longer ribs with five LED lights each with two shorter ribs having only three LED lights. There is an off/on switch for controlling your lights just below the crank for raising and lowering the top.

The umbrella is 6 1/2 feet on the short side and 10 feet on the long side.  It will tilt from the long side to the long side.  Under the Umbrella will be about 6 1/2 feet of standing room with the umbrella straight up.

The canvas top is mad of a polyester material that will withstand mildew.  The pole is a regular 1 1/2 inch steel painted black.

The square solar panel on the top will charge the 1500mAh rechargeable battery for about nine to twelve hours of light from the 26 LED bulbs.  Make sure the switch is in the off position to charge the batteries for night operation.  No need to run an extension cord to get light for night time entertainment.
