Some of the most innovative solar garden lights are the ones which feature glass orbs. These lights have LED bulbs encased within a glass sphere, illuminating the entire sphere in a splash of color. Many models have the ability to cycle through multiple colors. They make for ideal garden lights since they are positioned high above the ground and surrounding plant life.
The Moonrays orb-style garden lights have a beautiful crackle glass orb which contains a color changing LED bulb. The orb serves to diffuse and scatter the light as well as protect the internal components. You can leave this garden light outdoors year-round without fear of damage. When on, the LED bulb will switch between seven beautiful colors of red, yellow, green, purple, pink, orange and blue. Setup is easy- just press the stake into the ground and let the unit charge for one day. The rechargeable AA battery needed for operation is included in the set. These garden lights offer unexpected beauty in gardens, yards, patios, and entryways. They turn on automatically and are powered by the sun.
These Westinghouse models have a mosaic pattern on their glass orbs. The glass looks as if it is made of colored rock or ceramic. Internal LED bulbs filter light through the mosaic glass to create a beautiful solid color. By day, the 600 mAh battery gets charged by a solar panel on the post. At night, the orb automatically turns on for up to 8 hours at a time. The specialized solar garden lighting panel is designed to charge the battery even on cloudy days. The batteries are included to get you up and running in no time. In about a day’s time, the battery will have enough energy to activate the light.
Three beautiful crackle-glass garden lights are included in this package. The featured colors are red, green and blue. When active, each light changes between these three colors. The glass balls are four inches in diameter and sit on a three-foot-tall stake. The stakes are made of metal and are very durable. The solar panel mounted discreetly on the stake charges the batteries by day. Batteries are included with each garden light. When used to pocket a garden with light, the look is truly impressive. They need no maintenance other than occasional cleaning.
