Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Overview: The MAXSA Solar Motion-Activated Wedge Light (item
# 40235) operates off of solar powered using its integrated Solar Panel and is
activated by passive infrared motion sensors, while offering simple
installation. The Solar Motion-Activate Wedge Light is perfect for Decks,
patios, balconies, entrance doors, garages, driveways, carports, walkways,
backyards, farm sheds, pool areas, stairs and steps.
Solar Power: During the day the integrated solar charge panel on the
MAXSA Solar Wedge Light converts sunlight into electricity, recharging the
batteries. This unit includes 3 "AA" rechargeable batteries, which will need to
be replaced when the charging ability has decreased. These batteries should last
for approximately two years before they will need to be replaced. The Solar
Wedge Lights' built-in circuit protector helps prevents over-charge or discharge
of the batteries. The solar charge panel should be placed in direct sunlight to
ensure that the Solar Security Light can fully charge during day. Charging in
partial sun or on cloudy days will reduce the overall operation time per day.
Note: Before its initial use, the MAXSA 40235 should be left in
the direct sunlight to charge for three days.
Motion Detection: Using this stored energy, the two LED lights (built
into the Solar Security Light) turn on automatically at night when motion is
detected from its integrated passive infrared (PR) motion sensor. This MAXSA
Solar Wedge Light turns on for 4 minutes each time motion is detected in the
area. The sensor can detect motion within a 100-degree horizontal angle and a
distance of up to 22 feet.
Super Bright LEDs: The MAXSA Solar Motion-Activate Wedge Light
features two built-in long lasting super bright LED lights which last virtually
forever. The Solar Wedge Light incorporates an internal reflector along with its
two built-in LEDs for bright light output.
Mounting Location: The Solar Wedge Light can be mounted vertically or
horizontally onto a solid surface, using the supplied mounting bracket,
wood/sheet metal screws, and anchors (now wiring required). For optimum sun
exposure and longer light output, place the light with the solar panel in a
position that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. Ideally,
the solar panel should face south.
