Solar Rechargeable Batteries - 1.2V AAA Ni-MH 900mAh 10-Pack
This Pack of 10 Solar Rechargeable Batteries holds 1.2V AAA Ni-MH replacement batteries, with a charging capacity of 900mAh. They can be used to replace your existing 1.2V AAA Ni-MH solar light batteries.
Rechargeable batteries for solar lights generally last up to 2 years. We always recommend that you replace your existing Ni-MH with a Ni-MH, or your Ni-CD with a Ni-CD 1.2 Volt battery. Although the solar lights will work with either one, the original circuitry is set up for one or the other, not both in most cases. Specifically, if you install a Ni-MH into a light that had Ni-CD, the life expectancy of the battery will not last as long.
Can you use just any rechargeable battery that you charge in your electric battery charger? In a pinch, yes, if you need to test the light to see if the batteries need replaced. That battery will last as long as the built-in charge lasts, maybe a few months, then it will give out and you'll have to take it out of the solar light, bring it into your home and plug it into your electric charger to recharge. Remember, a battery that is charged by electricity has no ability to charge itself from solar power. Unless you prefer to be dealing with your solar batteries all of the time, choose replacement batteries made for solar lighting.
Using the incorrect battery can also burn out the circuitry in some solar lights. Again, it is always best to replace the existing batteries with the same type of battery.
You can upgrade your existing batteries by choosing a higher mAh. The mAh refers to the energy storage capacity that a single battery can hold. The higher the mAh, the more energy the battery can store from the sun on a single day. If your existing lights have multiple LED bulbs in one fixture, it does draw more energy on a daily basis, so this 900mAh, or the larger 1200mAh capacity, will keep your lights on longer at night. Either of these can replace your 1.2V 600mAh or less rechargeable batteries with no problem, and give you a longer, better charge for your solar garden lights.
