Questions about our products

Can the LED solar module be used for all lampions and how long does it shine?
The LED solar module can basically be used for all lampion. ATTENTION: Due to the different light transmission of the individual colours and sizes, we recommend it mainly for the smaller sizes and brighter colours.
For this purpose, we have compiled our lighting recommendations in an overview.

Is the lighting and mounting set available in different versions?
We have the wired lighting and mounting set in three versions in terms of cable length, namely with 5 metres, 10 metres and with 20 metres cable length.
All three versions consist of a plug, the cable in the corresponding length and an E27 socket for standard light bulbs.
The lighting and mounting set can be used for all lampions.
You can find the instructions for the lighting and mounting sets here.

Do all lampions shine with the same brightness or are there differences?
In fact, not all of our lampions in the different colours shine with the same brightness. This is due to the colour-specific properties of the respective colours.
For example, the lampion in dove blue-grey and black (Dark-Edition) does not let any light through at all!
The blue, red, dark red and pink lampions are preferably to be operated with the wired lighting.
The white, yellow, cream and orange lampions in size S and also M are well equipped with the solar module. In size L, wired lighting is usually a good solution. You can find a detailed overview of our lighting recommendations here.

Can the lampions really be used outdoors all year round?
Yes, they can! Depending on the place of use, it is recommended to clean the lampion at appropriate intervals to keep it looking good for a long time.
If you want to store your lampion for longer periods of non-use, please make sure that it is completely dry.

My solar module does not light up, what can I do?
The LED solar panels are all pre-charged when we send them out. If it really does not light up, first look at the DIP switch on the underside of the solar module to see if you have switched it ON.
In addition, the LED of the solar module starts to light up automatically in the evening from a fixed preset twilight value.
If the DIP switch is set to On and it still does not light up, place the solar module switched off in the light for a few days so that the batteries can fully charge again.
You can also find more information about our solar module here in the instructions.

What material is the lampion made of?
The lampion as such consists of a robust PVC-coated polyester fabric. In addition, shaping and stabilising stainless steel and plastic wires are incorporated into the lampion.

Cream = RAL 1013 / Oyster white
Yellow = RAL 1037 / Sun yellow
