Review: OxyLED E03S LED Solar Spotlight
Solar powered outdoor lights are all the rage these days. Whether as decorative accent lights or as useful path highlighters, there’s a good chance you’ll see them throughout suburban neighborhoods. An interesting variation on these accent lights is the spotlight, which, instead of providing general area illumination, highlights a specific target, like a front door porch area. This not only can increase general attractiveness, but also help enhance security, particularly since you don’t have to remember to turn a light on or off.
In regards to these types of spotlights, OxyLED offers the E03S LED Solar Spotlight, which I’m reviewing here. It’s solar powered, waterproof (IP44 rating) and heatproof, and can be secured in the ground with the included spike or wall mounted with the included hardware.
The spotlight itself has a single button for Low, Off, and High brightness. Low brightness lasts at least 9 hours, while high brightness (about 200 lumens) lasts at least 5 hours. In my testing, even the low brightness was suitably bright thanks to the four LEDs. With its built-in light sensor, it automatically goes on at night and automatically turns off and charges during the day.
The oversized solar panel adjusts 180 degrees, while the spotlight portion adjusts 90 degrees. The combination of the two should allow for optimal positioning regardless of where you place it.
The built-in lithium rechargeable battery (3.7v, 2200Mah) should last at least one a half years before needing to be replaced. Replacement is as simple as opening the battery cover, removing the old battery, and then inserting the new battery.
For only $19.99 on Amazon right now, it’s a robust, elegant outdoor spotlight that can be used in a variety of ways. It’s another winner from OxyLED.
