Maxsa 40235 Solar-powered LED Wedge Light

T.W. from Land O Lakes, FL. on 2/27/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just a great solar powered light. I have a 12 foot dark corridor leading up to my front door in which I have been struggling for years with small flashlights on my key ring just to help light up the key hole but not anymore thanks to this Wedge Light. The Wedge Light detects me approximately 20 feet away and lights up the dark corridor perfectly. I was so impressed with this Wedge Light that I ordered three more. Works great as a security light as well.

Pros: 1) Very easy insulation 2) Comes with rechargeable batteries 3) Provides a decent amount of light for smaller areas 4) Fast Shipping

Cons: 1) The Wedge Light is not a super bright light by no means but it works great in smaller areas. If your looking for a solar light to light up your backyard then this is not the solar light for you.

Hands-on research

Product Research


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.
