Pre-Installation
PLANNING INSTALLATION
Compare all parts in the package with the Package Contents list. Verify that all parts are included and that there is no damage. If any parts
are missing or damaged, contact the Customer Service Team at 1-855-HD-HAMPTON or visit www.HamptonBay.com.
Choose an installation location where direct sunlight can be absorbed onto the face of the solar panel for as many hours as possible
throughout the day. Shadows cast by homes, trees, and structures will restrict the charging of the batteries and affect the total hours of
operation of the lights.
NOTE: The batteries come pre-charged but some
discharge may happen during storage or transit.
HOW SOLAR WORKS
During daylight hours, the sun will charge the batteries in the solar panel and the lights will turn on at dusk. Light output depends upon how
much light the solar panel receives. Position the solar panel so that it receives maximum sunlight. If there are streetlights or other lighting
that could shine directly into or near the solar panel, these lights may trigger the light sensor and the lights may turn off. The solar panel
must sense darkness to operate.

2 Preparing the solar panels
Remove the ground stake (C) from the bottom of the
pole (B).
Insert the top of the ground stake (C) into the bottom of the
pole (B).
Repeat this step for each solar light (A), pole (B), and
ground stake (C).
NOTE: To allow each battery to reach full capacity and
perform correctly, pull out the plastic tab and place the solar
light in full sunlight for the first 12 hours. Failure to do so can
shorten the life of the battery or operation of the light. On
cloudy or rainy days it may take several days for the batteries
to fully charge.
NOTE: To protect the solar panel from damage, do not use
force during assembly. Keep the plastic shades in the
packaging until you need to install them.

Installing the solar lights
NOTE: Do not use a hammer to install the ground stakes.
This could cause damage to the solar lights.

Prepare a hole in the ground for each solar light. Use a tool
such as a screwdriver to prepare the installation hole to
ensure that the hole is not larger than the ground stake (C).
Insert the solar light assembly into the prepared hole.

Maintenance
REPLACING THE BATTERY
WARNING: Only use NiMh rechargeable batteries with
these solar lights. Do not mix battery types.
WARNING: Do not open, short circuit, or mutilate
batteries as injury may occur. Batteries must be recycled or
disposed of properly.
CAUTION: Do not use a smaller mAh battery as it will
affect performance. Larger mAh batteries are acceptable.
Ensure you have positioned the batteries with the correct
polarity (+) and (-).
NOTE: Battery performance is affected by weather and
temperature. Expect reduced performance in adverse
conditions of cold, extreme cold, extreme heat, plus
humidity and dampness.
1.
Twist off the top of the solar light assembly and remove the battery cover.
2.
Remove the old batteries and clean the battery contacts on the new batteries and the solar lights.
3.
Replace with new AA NiMh 600 mAh rechargeable batteries.
4.
Replace the battery cover.
5.
Twist the top of the solar head back onto the top of the solar light assembly.

Care and Cleaning
□
It is recommended that solar lights not be used in freezing conditions. Monitor weather and take solar items indoors for storage as
needed. Keep snow or other buildup off the solar panels so that the batteries are able to recharge.
□
Remove batteries from equipment that will not be used for an extended period of time.
Troubleshooting
Problem
The solar lights do not come on.
Solution
Check to ensure there are no obstructions over the top of the solar panel.
Check to ensure that the battery(s) are installed correctly and there is nothing blocking the battery
terminals from making contact.
Check to ensure the solar panel is positioned to sense both daylight and night time. If bright lights
shine near or into the solar panel, these lights may trigger the light sensor and the lights may turn off.
Bright lights can act like daylight and keep the system from starting.
Batteries may need to be changed and vary by use, temperature, weather conditions, and heat.
Replace the batteries with the exact same type of rechargeable batteries.
Ensure the batteries are fully charged. It is important to charge the batteries for 12 hours in full sun
before usage. Cloudy or rainy days may require a longer charging time.
In some cases, you may have to open the battery compartment and “seat” the batteries correctly
between metal clips as some dislodging may occur during the shipment. Also ensure the correct
polarity (+) and (-).
Cloudy or rainy days generate far less charge on the solar panel and thus fewer hours of operation.
Prolonged cloudy or rainy days can affect performance dramatically.
