Solar light chains store the most energy in summer, but even in the better months, there can sometimes be days or weeks of bad weather. For this reason, solar light chains must be protected from rain and foreign bodies - such as small insects. This is explained by the IP protection class rating. While indoor fairy lights have no restrictions, outdoor fairy lights must have an IP protection class of at least IP44.
Besides protecting the electronics, most solar fairy lights are also made of weatherproof material. Solar lanterns, for example, are usually made of plastic.
In addition, before purchasing solar fairy lights, ensure you consider the length of the solar light chain. There’s nothing more annoying than finding out that your new chain is too short for your balcony railing or fence.
Information on the length can be found in the item details in our shop.
