Lumify USB Solar Vintage Bulb Lights
The Solar Centre was the first company to bring solar string lights to the UK market. Lumify is our third generation solar string light product and by far the best. We have learnt a lot from our customers since we started designing solar lights ten years ago and all that knowledge and experience has been poured into the Lumify design making them by far the most advanced solar festoon lighting product we have ever launched.
Innovative Tube Design
Water ingress is one of the main reasons solar lights fail. Lumify festoon lights use an innovative new tube design which guarantees unrivalled waterproofing. The battery compartment, power switch, mode switch and USB charging port are all protected under an o-ring sealed screw cap which offers bottle-tight waterproofing. Both the solar panel and LED string are connected into the base of the tube using o-ring sealed valve connectors so there are no weak points.
Slick Solar Panel Design
Lumify's slick solar panel is just 8mm thick and uses thermally toughened ultra-clear tempered glass to seal the Lumify solar cells which maximises transmission efficiency and is guaranteed not to cloud over time. Clouding is common on cheap and mid-range solar lights and is one of the main reasons they deteriorate within a year or two. Lumify solar panels also offer a high degree of frost resistance which means they will clear quickly on those chilly winter mornings allowing them to soak up all available winter sun throughout the day. Lumify solar panels come with stake and wall mounting options included and can be angled up and down as well as tilted left and right.
Easily Replaceable Lithium Ion Battery
Lumify uses a single high powered 18650 rechargeable Lithium Ion battery (included) which have become the battery of choice for high-end electronics manufacturers. These high powered state-of-the-art batteries will offer years of hassle free use and can be replaced quickly and easily at any point in the future.
Powersaving mode is for those that don't have a great solar panel location available and aren't able to USB charge. Lumify's advanced Powersaving mode reduces brightness slightly which doubles the runtime of the lights.
Enhanced USB Charging
We pioneered USB charging on our Everbright range back in 2012 because not everyone has a solar-friendly spot in their garden. Lumify's unique high-efficiency circuit design takes USB charge to a new level. Lumify solar festoon lights can work for 6 nights in a row from a single 4 hour USB charge with only a little help from the sun - this can be extended to 12 days if you use Powersaving mode.
Remote Solar Panel
Years of selling and designing solar lights have taught us that solar lights with separate solar panels always perform better. Lumify is a 3 piece system consisting of the solar panel, control tube and light string. The solar panel is connected to control tube by a 2m cable and there is 2m of cable between the control tube and the first LED bulb on the light string. This means that you can get your solar panel in a great location (the higher up the better) but still have your control tube within easy reach.
Indoor and outdoor
Lumify have been designed to be used outdoors where they will withstand everything the British weather can throw at them, but that doesn't mean you can't use them indoors too! Simply remove the battery, disconnect the solar panel and plug them in to a USB charging source where they can operate indoors like normal mains powered lights.
Disconnectable Solar Panel and string Light String
Lumify have been carefully designed to ensure that both the solar panel and string light string can be disconnected from the control tube quickly and easily so you can leave your lights and solar panel in situ if you ever need to take the control tube inside to charge it by USB.
8 Lighting Modes
Lumify has 8 lighting modes including all sorts of flashing and alternating sequences as well as steady on where all lights stay on all the time with no flashing. Steady on is by far the most popular mode among our own customers so we have made this mode the first mode and the default mode on Lumify. Once you have selected your favourite mode Lumify will remember that setting and light up in that mode automatically each night.
Lumify USB Solar Fairy Lights are fully automatic so once you have set them up, turned them on and selected your favourite mode, they will light up automatically at dusk and turn off automatically after 8 hours. There is an on/off switch in the control tube so you can turn your lights off at any point. You can also use the on/off switch to reset the timer - simply turn your lights off and back on at any point in the evening and the 8 hour timer will be reset. Lumify will continue to charge if they have been switched off, but they will not turn on and off automatically until they have been turned on at the switch.
