By now most of us are probably familiar with solar garden lights. The product idea has taken many forms including lamps, flowers, fountains and even rocks which purport to help light paths, highlight garden spaces and generally heighten the aesthetic of your outdoor spaces. Here’s another solar powered, bright idea for the home: Solar LED address numbers.
As any frustrated pizza delivery driver will tell you, invisible address numbers can make for a frustrating time finding a home. Perhaps these solar address numbers available through ThinkGeek could put an end to cold pizzas and lost friends for those that live in dark neighborhoods.
The hardware needed for mounting the anodized aluminum, LED back-lit numbers is included. According to the product specs, the number plate extends from the mounting surface by about 1 inch. The numerals themselves measure in at 3.5″ high and are cut into 3/32″ anodized aluminum. The entire panel measures 6 1/8″ H x 3 1/2″ W x 1 3/8″ D.
When the sun goes down, the led lights mounded behind and above the numerals are automatically engaged. Provided the built-in solar panels get direct and extended sun exposure, the solar-rechargeable batteries are reportedly capable of lighting the sign for 8-10 hours.
