This type of spilt solar LED street lights are widely used in city street lighting, highway lighting, large square lighting, parking lot lighting, factory lighting and so on.

The all-in-one solar street light is also composed of street light, lithium battery, controller and solar panel. The difference is that all in one type integrates all parts into one solar street light fixture, which can make transportation, installation and maintenance more convenient, and the cost will be lower.

So the power and configuration of integrated solar LED street lamps usually won’t be large, usually ranging from 10W to 100W. The most common applications of all in one type is path lighting, garden lighting, park lighting, family yard lighting and so on.
