Solar Lighting the Easy Way

Bookmark and Share

The solar-powered RailLight Premium LED light comes with a QuickMount attachment “system” featuring multiple attachment options. These include a rail clamp that attaches to railings measuring 3/4in to 11/4in in diameter; a transom clamp that adjusts up to 2in, for use with cockpit coamings, toerails or the topsides of a dinghy and rowboat; and a post mount that attaches permanently to any deck, post, dock or piling.

The light requires neither wires nor batteries and incorporates a double Fresnel lens. A sealed stainless steel housing protects the system’s light emitting diodes, which have a working life of approximately 20,000 hours.

A built-in sensor automatically turns the light off when the sun is shining, while a sealed switch makes it possible to go from two LEDs, for a softer ambient light, to four LEDs. At maximum power, the light can be seen from a quarter mile away. A full charge provides eight hours of operation.

The RailLight Premium retails for $39.95. For more information, visit SolLight.
