solar string lights - repair and improve

by:C.E.T     2020-01-27
My first note.
Welcome to comment that these string lights were lit for about an hour, some of which were not at all.
I have no idea at all how they work, I searched on the internet and found a lot of information, some great information, some completely wrong information, thanks to all this guidance, especially I learned a lot and fixed \"My Way \".
I know there may be some better ways to do this, but I improvise something I \'ve already used.
I am using: solar light string with 20 LEDs4 AA battery boxes
4 with extension)
Set the JST male female connector 22 ad hoc line 3mm shrink package to wireSmall screws in the Cup hook with hook glue gun wire knife/stripperSoldering iron screw optional: if you want to put the light in a place where the plug is exposed to rain, the new solar panel 3 v 240 malilight switch cover inch dripping water tubing24 meter speaker waterproof plug etc.
The battery box costs about $2.
50. solar panels 3. 49.
Other things I already have.
I have 6 sets of lights on the covered terrace, so the total fixed amount is about 36. 00.
These lights are all the same, the same brand name, all bought in the same store, buy 4 in a year, and buy 2 in the next year.
Still, some people have a larger shell with 3 different boards inside.
So some of the pictures I took might have been taken by something else, but they were all taken by the solar Rose light.
Gently, these wires loose after each step, so you won\'t get all the work done or work.
Remove the battery turn on the battery/plate shell of the solar light if your light has an on/off switch on the board, set it to take a picture of the board and the wires, if you are new to something like meMark, it will be easier to mark the \"on\" side position of the switch with red marks.
Mark Each welding point of the wire connection with the magic mark-
This makes it easier to figure out where the wire goes if it falls off.
Mark the wire entering the lamp as the positive and negative mark of each wire on the circuit board-
I color each solder joint with red or black magic marks.
Cut about 8 \"wires outside the box cut off about half of the solar panel wires, cut off the battery wires close to the battery terminals, when you put the panels and batteries into the new battery box, remove the board from the box-there may be 1 or 2 small screws that hold it in place. It\'s protected from rain, etc.
Open the 4 AA battery bracket housing that connects the on/off switch cover and \"swing\" from the internal part that covers the wire, then switch the external wire to the inside.
Remove 3 \"double\" battery terminals (
I use only 1 AA NiCd 600 mA battery per lamp)
Move the \"single line red line\" terminal at the end to the slot opposite the negative terminal and the switch may have to be removed (now)
In order to install the board into the housing, the extra partition must make the holes that the wires shoot out of the housing larger-some of my people have a hole large enough that some do not, if the board has a switch, place the wire on positionwire before wrapping it together.
I forgot so many times that I put a big pink note on my workbench to remind me)
Connect the battery wires.
Send solar panels and LED wires through holes into the outside of the housing.
Put the plug on the LED (female)& Solar panel (male)
Please make sure the switch is still outside and put the lid inside back in place (
If new solar panels are not added, skip to step 7)
Add a new solar panel: weld the wires on the new solar panel, stick the new solar panel to the light switch cover, and pass the wires through the switch board, make a hole in the front of the original housing, large enough for the female plug to go through and pass the wire through it (
Make the hole bigger and easier to replace in the end)
Put a female plug at the end of the wire to measure the total distance from the patio roof to the middle of the top of the beam supporting the front of the patio roof.
My measurements are 26 \", so I cut the wires at age 36 to create some slack and extra slack because the wires are small and sometimes break when trying to peel off.
Connect a plug at the end.
Your situation may be different, it may be, so you have to make a hole temporarily at the bottom of the old box (
This location is based on the mine facing south on the front edge of the patio roof, and this hole cannot be seen from the ground.
If the front of your light is facing the roof, you may want the hole in the front)
Insert the wires you cut in step 7 together with the male plug inside the housing into any additional holes in the housing with hot glue or caulking agent etc.
Twist the case back together and cut out a small square at the top of the pole that supports the solar panel housing.
Pass the wire at the bottom through the pole, align the wire with a square cut, and open the pole.
The end of the wire coming out from the bottom of the pole, put a plug with a short wire at the end, but do not shrink the package or weld it.
Measuring the length of the line from the bottom of the pole wireCut a single inch of the oil drop tube of the month-
4 \"remove the plug shorter than the total length, slide the dropper on the wire all the way to the bottom of the shell, including inside the electrode, there should be enough wire to hang on the end to connect the plug.
Re-open the plug and weld/shrink the package, then slide the dropper down until the dropper meets the plug.
I wrapped a small piece of blue painter\'s tape over the wire and let it hit the plug-enough to keep it together and not let it slide down on the wire, but if needed, easy exit.
Put everything together and test it in the sun and in the dark.
String up the lights on the Skywell-I used small screws on the Cup hook because the wind here would get bad and actually blow out the lights on the hook.
The wires on these things are too fragile, hanging them on the rose cover is like asking to mess it up.
So I hung a hook on every light.
Hang the first 10 on one side of the hook, and the last 10 on the other side, and alternate the direction of the hook, helping to fix them in the appropriate position.
You have to do only one lamp at a time because they are not evenly distributed but are worth it in the end.
When you arrive where you want to place the battery/circuit box, cut off the wire, get to the beam with some slack and install a plug on it.
Step 12: I want to put all the panels together so they are easy to get there so I put them in the middle of the roof.
There are not enough wires to get to the end of the lights, so I reach them with cheap gold/silver speaker wires.
I put it in the drip pipe, connect it to the beam cutting pipe with the drip pipe clip as long as you need, lay the pipe straight in the sun for about a day, it would be easier to put the wire inside.
There are 2 wires inside the first part of the pipe, and the second part continues with 1 wire to reach the last light.
It\'s hard to explain how I connected them together, so I\'ll post a photo where you can see the pipe moving to the left.
The new solar panel has 225 mA output, the battery is better, the lights are on all night!
If there is a problem, it is easy to remove the suspicious part because all the \"parts\" unplug each other.
Displayed the day is not bright midnight bright.
