Solar Lighted Angels Have Many Uses

Guardian angels in cemeteries have been a common sight for centuries. In the greatest cathedrals around the world angels look over the dead and are considered to take the departed soul to heaven. Today, with the magic of solar batteries the angel can be gently illuminated at night so you can see your loved one’s resting place from a distance. Solar lighted angels are not only for sad occasions. They can also be used in a garden as a night light or to add charm as a patio decoration. It depends on the type of angel statue and what pose it has, where it will look best.


Praying, crying or meditation angels are usually seen in cemeteries sometimes with memorial Bible verses added that are also solar lit. These solar lighted angels are a perfect gift to give the grieving family. Some come with crosses and other types of messages that give comfort or inspire. A small lighted angel can be added to a traditional grave marker to make it special and unique. Some angels have only glowing wings and some the whole body glows. They look like guardian angels watching over your loved one.


For the garden or home there are also solar lighted angels that are suitable. Angels sitting that look more like sprites than angels from heaven, have solar batteries that recharge during the day and light up the figure at night. In your garden, where they can be seen from a window inside your house, they make an attractive or whimsical display. Some are cherubs with tiny wings that look cute peaking out behind trees or furniture in the evening where they can provide lighting for a pathway. If you have a small apartment, you could put one on your front step. If it gets enough sun light during the day it will give you a welcome home light in the evening.


Solar lighted angels are very easy to set up and use. They need to receive direct sun light for six to eight hours a day. The batteries are charged by the energy collected by the solar panels. They automatically turn on in the evening; there is nothing you have to do. They are made of polyresin or acrylic so they are waterproof and can withstand most weather. Some have exquisite detail and look like a real being in your garden. For children they are truly magical.


The maintenance for solar lighted angels is minimal, you just need to clean the solar cell with a soft cloth to remove dust once in a while and replace the rechargeable batteries every 2 to 3 years. The LED (light emitting diodes) sometimes last for 100,000 hours. That’s not much effort for the joy and comfort this ingenious little device will bring. It is so easy now to have lighted areas in your garden with no extra electricity bill or cables and outdoor plugs. Along with the angels there are fairies, dwarves, stones, pagodas and many more to fit your home and garden.
