Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Add light to your outdoor wall using only the power of the sun with the Canterbury Solar Wall Light. This stylish solar wall light uses a single high efficiency micro SMD bulb to emit a gentle glow for up to 10 hours from a full charge. The Canterbury is made from high quality 301 grade stainless steel to guarantee years of rust-free enjoyment.

How does it work?
During the day the sun charges the Canterbury’s AA rechargeable batteries (supplied and installed) giving it the power it needs to work after dark. At night the Canterbury turns on automatically. In the morning the Canterbury turns off automatically so that it can recharge for the night ahead. The Canterbury can be turned off completely at any time where it will continue to charge.

How do I install it?
The Canterbury is completely wireless so it’s incredibly easy to install and everything you need is in the box.

1. Remove the metal nut caps from the front of the wall bracket.
2. Remove the plastic insert from the rear of the wall bracket.
3. Screw the plastic insert onto your wall using the supplied screws and screw plugs
4. Once the plastic insert is installed, push the light onto it and tighten the metal nut caps to secure it into place.
5. Gently pull the top off the Canterbury and turn it on using the switch on the underside. Replace top and wait until dark.

Choosing your location
Please remember that all solar lights need access to light to charge and this is particularly important for solar wall lights because they nearly always have light obstructed by the wall they are installed on. Occasionally customers want a wall light in a location that just isn’t suitable for a solar light. Before you place your order, please think about the location you want your Canterbury in. Any solar light will struggle to charge in north facing areas or areas that are heavily shaded and the Canterbury is no exception. Please remember that the solar panel on the Canterbury is on its top, so it is not suitable for covered locations such as under porches, overhangs or awnings.

Box Contains

  • 1 x Canterbury Solar Wall Light

    This solar light is EXCELLENT. I assembled it myself (logical instructions/easy to do) with no problems at all. I put it about 5' to the side of my front door - it illuminates the path, my five front steps and the door itself and beyond. Not only did it illuminate the areas I was concerned with - BONUS - it illuminated part of my garden, which showed me, for the first time, who had been emptying my bird bath every night - a Bathing Barn Owl - wonderful. I LOVE THIS SOLAR LIGHT and I heartily recommend it to everyone.

    I looked all over for a good outside solar light, something that isn't the usual pound shop tat sold on for massive profits (Like a lot seem to be).

    I found this light after hours of looking around, and it sounded way in front of anything else, so after reading a few reviews I bought it. I'm definitely not disappointed with it as well, it has a good quality feel to it, quite weighty but not over so, it gives out a good amount of light as well. It wont light a garden up or anything like that, but it gives off a good amount, enough so that it would well illuminate a door etc.

    If your looking for a GOOD solar powered exterior light, buy this one, it wont break the bank and gives very good value for money.

    Brilliant Solar Light, gives enough light on the steps up to the House. Never thought it would be strong enough to light the stairs, but it proved me wrong. I may get another one. also it looks so good when it is on the wall.

    Don't waste money buying cheap solar lights. We are very happy with this product. We have two on the wall next to our garden table. The lights have never left us in the dark.

    A really great product, solar lighting must have come on alot in the past few years, because this light is so much better than anything we've bought before. It looks good - very contemporary (pleasantly surprised) and we have put it on a south facing wall and it goes strong throughout the night with a good, strong white light. Highly recommend it.

    Over the years,I have tried many Solar Lights. Solar technology has come on in leaps and bounds since the early days. The Canterbury Solar Wall Light, for me, is the best Light I have ever tried, being well constructed, all metal and easy to assemble. The light that is emitted, gives a soft white diffused evenly spread illumination. Very impressed with the power that the two AA 600mamps batteries put out. I have fitted Five of the Canterburys onto a South facing wall on my terrace and they come on at dusk and are still going strong as dawn starts to break. At this time of the year, here in Andalucia, thats a good 10 hours. The Canterbury is very stylish and elegant in looks and is well designed.I particularly like the fact that the Solar electrics, e.g.solar panel, batteries, LED bulb etc, are confined in the metal cap at the very top of the fitting. In the month that they have been in position, I have not had any problems at all and they have come through two Thunderstorms with plenty of rain, without mishap. As a so called Solar light anorak of some twenty odd years standing, I can throughly recommend The Canterbury Solar Wall Light.

    UPDATE
    March 2014.

    Of the five Canterbury solar lights installed in October 2012, four of them have still have the original batteries and are working 100%. The fifth Light: I changed the original batteries today as the Light was not staying on during the Night, going off at 3am. As I say, the remaining Four Light are still going strong. I can only endorse my earlier comments of October 2012:
