Outdoor Solar Lamp Post Lights
When looking for Outdoor Solar Lamp Post Lights for your walk or driveway security, these five should be on your shortlist. If you are just replacing a head unit or have to have the post and head unit, it will be covered here. As these are solar lights they do not require any wiring or other prep work, just a solid foundation to mount on.
Gama Sonic GS-99F
This head unit will replace any existing light that has a 3 inch fitter. If you have a gas or line voltage light that does not work or needs replacement this is the product for you. No more wire or gas lines to worry about under the ground, just cap the gas line or undo the wiring at the start of the run and install the new fixture.
The unit is made form cast aluminum in a powder coated black finish and has beveled glass. It is 20 inches tall and 13 inches around. The 11 LED lights will light an area about 15 feet by 15 feet with the 150 lumins of light. A dusk to dawn switch will turn your light on in the evening.
The six mono-crystalline solar panels will charge the two replaceable 3.2 volt 1500mAh rechargeable batteries for about 15 hours of light on low setting and about 10 hours on high setting. Time the light will stay on after dark is determined by the charge the batteries get from the sun during the daylight hours.
Gama Sonic GS-114-FWP
This cast aluminum with a weathered bronze finish light fixture comes with several mounting variations. You can mount on a flat surface either horizontally or vertically, this means you can use it for a deck post topper or on a wall. It also comes with a 3 inch fitter adapter for replacing a gas or electric fixture on the top of an existing post.
The fixture will be 13.5 inches tall and 7 inches around. Dusk to dawn sensor will control the light. It will have 5 LED lights that produce 50 lumins of light, will be powered by 3.6 volt 800 mah rechargeable battery pack. Battery pack will get its daily charge from a solar panel.
Gama Sonic GS-113F
This rust free aluminum fixture is finished in Antique Bronze. It has vines made of metal winding up the side for decoration. This fixture will be 12.5 inches tall and 8.5 inches across. It comes with a 3 inch fitter base to fit most existing post, for easily replacing a gas or electric fixture.
A dusk to dawn sensor will turn on the 6 LED bulbs producing 70 lumins of light. The mono-crystalline solar panel will charge the 3.2 volt 1500mah rechargeable batteries.
Gama Sonic GS-94
This series of lights will come in three types of tops. The black powder coated finish will cover the cast aluminum parts. You can get a single, double or triple lamp for this light fixture. The fixture and post will be 90 inches tall and the area that will be lit will depend on the number of lights selected.
Each head fixture will contain solar panels to charge the 3.2 volt 3000 mah rechargeable battery packs. When replacing the batteries you must purchase battery packs that are the same as removed. A switch will let you choose between low or high on each light fixture to light the nine LED bulbs per head.
Assembly will require mounting the base to a concrete slab with the included bolts and nuts. After the base is installed, you have to assemble the three parts of the post and then the fixtures on top. If you have more than one fixture on top, it will take installing the fixture arms then fixtures.
Gama Sonic GS-106PL
This is a free standing post light with a planter for the base. The finish will be a black powder coat over the aluminum construction. The total height will be 77 inches with the planter 15 inches square. It will weigh about 14 pounds without dirt and plant, this means it will be easy to move from one location to another as you do not have to mount it to a concrete base.
The four solar panels gather energy to be stored in the 3.2 volt 1500 mha rechargeable battery. The six LED bulbs will light up on either low or high. The low setting will give a longer light and the high setting will give a brighter light for better coverage. A dusk to dawn sensor will turn on your light at dusk and off at dawn.
The post will come in four sections that will require only a screwdriver and a wrench to assemble. Placing some rocks in the bottom of the planter before your dirt will help in stability

solar lamps are a really great invention. We placed some of those solar lights in our garden but they are really small and you can plug them into a flowerbed for example.
Do you have a review of that too?
Look under the solar lights category and you will find some reviews. I will be doing a five best in the next week or so.
Really informative website. I’ll for sure be back when I do some upgrades to my back yard. Thanks
Please book mark as I will continually update the blogs on this site.
I like the idea of using a planter to keep the post in position as in the Gamma Sonis GS106-PL. Saves a lot of drilling and fitting anchors etc. And it should look great too depending on what you put in the planter of course.
You can plant for the seasons. If you have it out front you can put artificial poinsettia’s in it during the holidays.Every holiday could have a different flower or plant.
I like the Gama Sonic GS-99F, because it does not require wire or gas lines to worry about under the ground.
Also for Gama Sonic GS-106PL as it can be moved easily from one place to another 🙂
Really awesome Outdoor Solar Lamp Post Lights here!
These solar powered post light can be installed by anyone, you do not have to be a professional.
This is some great information. I didn’t know that there are lamp post that are solar powered that you could purchase until I stumbled onto your site. I bought to new outside lamps for my front and rear doors and hadn’t even considered solar powered lamps. I think that I am going to look into the Gamma Sonic GS-99F. I only wish I had enough money to completely go solar.
These Solar Lamp Post Fixtures will allow you to put a security light any where with the annoying under ground wiring. The only cost will be replacing the rechargeable batteries when needed. Some locations do not get enough daylight for the solar panel to recharge the batteries every day.
Great information! We will be redoing our little backyard in our condo soon. Solar is the only way to go! We have always had bad luck with buying lights that just donâ€™t give off enough light. Perhaps we just went too cheap? I will certainly be checking these out! Thank you for the detailed review!
Some of the older Solar lights did not produce very much light. If you want the brightest and longest lasting light, find one with a LED bulb and the biggest mAh rechargeable battery. The mAh is the amount of power that is stored by the battery.

When looking for lighting for your outdoor space, make sure you compare the lumens, this is the brightness of the light. This will only give you the brightness of the light, the diffuser or bulb cover will take away from the light.
Hi John, your article is very thorough. I’m looking for a solar lamp that would give enough light to have a normal evening by the table (wine, cards, food..). Could you be so kind and recommend me which one of those 5 would be the best choice in my case? Also, does any of those lights has a switch? – so I can turn it on and off? Thank you.
I will look into the table top solar powered lamp. I do have some Umbrellas with solar powered lights on this site now, I will leave you a link to that until I can give you more information.
This is actually a really nice outdoor lamp and really gives the look of an elite lamp.
Great thing is that it doesn’t require any fuel r electricity to work. I’m a nature lover and this is very beneficial for nature. Think all the world switched to solar energy. This could be a revolution.
Solar energy is getting a real strong hold in the outdoor lighting and accessories. I am going to be doing some more solar items in the near future. Solar fountains are becoming more popular also, most do not have backup batteries and only work during the daylight hours.
