I've been searching for a solar powered lamp but I couldn't find anyone that suited for the right price so I descided to build my own.
Here is what you need:
Solar powered garden lamps x 3
Soldering tool (optional)
50 cm of chord, can be taken from an old lamp or something else that you aren't using. Try to find a thinner chord if you want to put the solar panels on the outside.
Step 1: Open Up the Lamp
After you've removed the top section, gently open it up with a nipper.
Now you can see all the different components.
Step 2: Separate the Components
Step 3: Ready to Be Be Assambled
Now, all we have to do is to join them together and attach them to your new lamp.
Step 4: Join the Components
Make sure you dont mix the wires to the battery and the solar panel.
Let the cable to the solar panel be a little bit longer to have a longer distance between the lamp and the panels. This gives you some more freedom when you are ready to install it by the window.
It's best if you solder the wires together, but you can also twist them together if you dont have a soldering tool.
Step 5: A Lamp Is Starting to Form
Make sure you dont attach panels before moving them through the lamp base like I did!
Use the original lamp base from the garden lamp and the lamp shade works perfectly well for the lamp to stand on.
Step 6: Attach the Batteries
Step 7: The Lamp Is Almost Done
Step 8: The Lamp Is Ready and Panels Installed
