1.  Uponun 1000 Lumens Solar Lights Indoor & Outdoor Home

Solar Lights Indoor&Outdoor Home Uponun 1000Lumen Solar LED Ceiling/Pendant Light with Remote Control, Integrated Cool White/Warm White Switchable Solar Barn Light for Shed, Yard,Patio, Garden, Garage

The 1000 lumens Uponun solar indoor light kit is the brightest lamp on our list today, in fact, it’s more of a solar flood light than a normal indoor lamp.

The 2 color modes are versatile and you can easily switch between them using the remote control.

It got the perfect lumens for a solar light kit for crafts, they will work perfectly in a tool shed, but will also work great indoors or even can be installed as a wall light or even stairs.

The good thing about the Uponun solar powered light kit is the IP65 water and weatherproof, so no worries when it rains or even when the weather goes even rougher. 

You get up to 10 hours running time and will only need to sit in the sun for about 7 hours to be fully charged, a respectable ratio, but could’ve been better in my opinion, but still acceptable due to the fact it’s so bright.

With a lifetime warranty, you can’t really ask for anything more, Uponun’s customer service is top-notch and will surely satisfy you. 

Pros

  • 1000 Lumens
  • IP65 water and weatherproof
  • Up to 10 hours of running time
  • Great Lighting options and comes with a remote control
  • Lifetime warranty

Cons

  • Needs about 7 hours to fully charge

2. Lozayi Indoor & Outdoor Solar Powered LED Light For Sheds

Solar Lights,LOZAYI Solar Lights Outdoor,IP65 Waterproof 16.4Ft Cord Remote Control Led Outdoor Lights Pendant Light with 270°Wide Adjustable Solar Panel for Home Yard Garden Decorate-Warm White

With a modern yet elegant design, the Lozayi solar indoor light kits come with up to 240 lumens output, which is ideal for Sheds, Pergolas, Gazebos, or any indoor usage. 

With the state of the art adjustable solar panel and a 16.4ft cord, you can always be assured the best degree of sunlight exposure, to achieve optimal running time.

The Lozayi solar shed light comes with a huge battery of 4400mAh, and you will immediately notice that it’s one of the biggest we have on our list of the best indoor solar lights for 2021. 

With enough direct sunlight you can get up to 16 hours of clean, and free energy, and you only need to charge it for around 7 hours; a pretty decent ratio indeed and it has a great solar chandelier like design.

And yeah, the remote control is a pretty solid addition that will let you control everything with it, from the timer to light intensity.

You can choose between 3 levels of brightness; 100%, 75%, and 50%

Also, there are 3 different timing options; 2 hours, 6 hours, and +1H, which add an extra 1 hour to the timer.

The only downfall in my opinion is the PVC plastic, while it’s not a big deal, as the premium look and feel of metal still exist. But I would’ve loved the usage of metal with those solar shed lights.

The last thing to notice is that you get a 1-year warranty with the Lozayi solar lighting indoors, yet another fine addition to the overall experience.

Pros

  • IP65 water and weatherproof
  • 270-degree adjustable solar panel
  • Up to 16 hours of running time

3. Flyhome Solar Powered Emergency Indoor Light Bulbs

Flyhoom Solar Powered Light Bulbs Outdoor Rechargeable, Portable 180LM Solar Emergency LED Bulb with Remote for Indoor, Power Outage, Hurricane, No Electricity Areas

With the Flyhome solar indoor lighting kits, you are guaranteed a very safe experience if you live in an area where you might face emergencies such as hurricanes and recurrent power outages.

They offer up to 180 lumens and also can be charged using a solar panel (9-10 hours) or directly through a USB port (4-6 hours), making it an ideal solution for different situations.

With a running time of up to 15 hours after around 8 hours of sunlight, the Flyhome solar powered indoor light kits surely excel there. 

And to further adapt to whatever situation you are in you can easily switch between 4 lighting modes:

  • High mode: Provides 180 lumens for 6 hours
  • Middle mode: Provides 100 lumens for 10 hours
  • Low mode: Provides 40 lumens for 15 hours
  • SOS mode: Provides 100 lumens for 6 hours

Further, in order to save energy and keep the lights working as long as possible, the brightness of each mode will change to the nightlight mode (10 lumens for the last 2 hours of the battery charge).

Also, there is an auto-off button, which automatically turns off the light after 15 min, 30 min, 1 hour, or 2 hours.

The last thing to notice is that while the solar panel is water and weatherproof, the light bulb isn’t. They are supposed to be used as indoor solar light kits or for sheds. 

And also, you get a money-back guarantee and a dedicated customer service to help you with any inquiries.

Pros

  • Dual charge option (AC and Solar Panel)
  • Up to 15 hours of running time
  • 4 lighting modes
  • Portable, lightweight, and comes with a remote control
  • Money-back guarantee

Cons

  • The bulb itself isn’t waterproof, but the panel is

4. Afoskce Solar Indoor Lighting Kits

Solar Light Bulb Outdoor Afoskce 130LM Portable Solar Powered Led Bulb Light for Chicken Coops Shed Hiking Fishing Camping Tent Lighting(2Pack)

The 130 lumens Afoskce indoor solar power light kits are another great product that will come in handy if you ever find yourself in an area where you might face power outages.

They are mobile and can be taken anywhere due to the fact that it’s pretty lightweight. Also, you can either charge it using the solar panel, or you can charge it directly using the USB port.

The running time is a bit weird; you get about 4 hours of running time, but still, you also need to charge it for about 8 hours, the ratio isn’t perfect for solar power light kits -to be honest-, but still, it will surely come in handy at those times of emergencies. 

Also, don’t forget that you can always alternate between solar power and home electricity if the necessity calls.

The only downfall of the Afoskce solar powered indoor lights is that you don’t get a waterproof light bulb, even though the solar panel is water and weatherproof, so again, you can only use the bulb indoors. 

You also get a money back guarantee, which is a nice addition.

Pros

  • Dual charge option (AC and Solar Panel)
  • Portable and lightweight
  • 130 lumens
  • Money-back guarantee

Cons

  • The bulb isn’t waterproof

5. Kyson Solar Powered Led Shed Light

Solar Lights,Kyson Solar Powered Led Shed Light with Remote Control and Pull Cord for Indoor Outdoor Use

The Kyson solar shed lights set a fine example of elegance and style, the way it looks is pretty premium and adds much to the style of the room. 

You can easily control light modes using the remote control and be assured that one remote control can control all solar powered shed lights from the same model. 

One thing to notice is that they are smaller than you may expect, still, they provide a respectable amount of light.

The Kyson solar light kit will light up your indoor environment or shed for up to 12 hours and you only need to charge them for about 6 hours directly in the sun. 

The charge/run time ratio is respectable, but the small size of the bulb made me expect more running time. 

As usual, the panel is waterproof and while they don’t mention the specific number, we will assume that it’s at least IP44, and the bulb is covered.

The last thing to mention is that you don’t get a warranty with the Kyson solar powered shed light but you get a 30-day return period and customer service if you ever need to.

Pros

  • Up to 12 hours of running time
  • Stylish And elegant
  • Comes with a remote control
  • Different lighting modes

Cons

  • No warranty

6. KK.Bol Solar Portable LED Lighting Kit 

KK.BOL Solar Lamp Portable LED Light Bulb Solar Panel Powered Rechargeable Lantern Lights Lamps for Pet House Shed Barn Indoor Outdoor Emergency Hiking Tent Reading Camping Night Light (1600mAh 150LM)

The KK.BoI solar power LED light kit is another portable and an efficient alternative to normal light bulbs. 

These beautiful lights can be charged using the solar panel or the USB port, which will surely come in handy, especially during emergencies. 

Although they are pretty small, these solar indoor lamps offer 150 lumens making them optimal for sheds and indoors.

The running time of the KK.BoI solar light kit is as expected; 7 hours, while it’s longer than other alternatives, but still the charging time is as long as 5 hours, so it’s only superior when it comes to running time. 

The only downside of the KK.Boi solar lighting kit is that you don’t really get a 100% waterproof experience, as the light bulbs aren’t waterproof, but the solar panel surely is waterproof. 

Pros

  • Dual charge option (AC and Solar Panel)
  • Up to 7 hours of running time
  • Portable and lightweight
  • 150 lumens

Cons

  • The bulb isn’t waterproof
  • No warranty

7. BioLite Solar 620 Portable Off grid Lighting System

BioLite SolarHome 620 Portable Off-Grid Solar Lighting System

The perfect camping experience is provided by the BioLite solar lighting kit, the kit got all you might need.

The control box can charge your phone, can play music via the radio, and also got a motion sensor to alert you of any intruders. While the color isn’t perfect, the futuristic experience is surely worth it.

The BioLite solar powered shed light comes with a wall mounted control box, which services as a central hub to control the lights and the radio.

Although this might complicate things when used in camping trips, it will surely prove handy when used in sheds or indoors as you won’t bother with extra cords.

The downfalls of the BioLite lighting solar kit aren’t too many, but we have to mention them.

First, the lights run for about 10 hours, but also need about 8 hours to full charge, which might not be ideal. 

Also, there is no warranty, but I think that the 30-days return period will suffice, and I’m sure that you will find no trouble with the product really.

Pros

  • Up to 10 hours of running time
  • A control box
  • A security motion sensor
  • Embedded Radio
  • Waterproof
  • Separate ON/OFF light switches

Cons

  • Takes around 8 hours to fully charge
  • Have no warranty

8. GreenLight Planet Home 120 Solar Lighting System + USB Charger

Greenlight Planet Home 120 Solar Lighting System Plus USB Charger

The GreenLight solar powered lighting system is a great alternative for other off grid systems that might be cumbersome to deal with. 

The included control box can be used to charge other devices and also can be used to -obviously- control the lights. 

Another great addition is the separate light switches so you can control each light on its own.

The 200 lumen per lamp (total of 600 lumens) is more than plenty for solar light for sheds, so you can really use them even more lavishly indoors. 

The advertised running time is about 24 hours, but we can estimate on average it will last about 16 hours, using the reviews and the technical sheet. 

So, you get about 16 hours of light after only 4 hours of sunlight, that’s more than a perfect ratio and will surely come in handy.

The only downfall of the GreenLight solar light kit is that you don’t get a warranty included, but don’t worry, you get a 30-day return period and the assistance of the customer service who are more than welcome to help you.

Pros

  • Up to 24 hours of running time
  • Dual charge option (AC and Solar Panel)
  • Ability to charge devices
  • A control box
  • Waterproof
  • Up to 600 lumens output
  • Seperate ON/OFF light switches

Cons

  • Have no warranty

9. Gvshine Solar Indoor Lighting Kits

GVSHINE [30W Panel Foldable] Solar Panel Lighting Kit, Solar Home DC System Kit for Emergency, Hurricane, Power Outage with 4 USB Solar Charger LED Light Bulb and 5 Cellphone Charger/5V 2A Output

The Gvsine solar lighting kit sets a true example of brilliance. I really like the accompanying control box that is capable of charging devices and also has an indicator of the current power.

But what really caught my eyes is that you can either turn off the whole system or that you simply turn off each device by simply unplugging it.

The IP65 water and weatherproof technologies are a fine addition and make the Gvshine solar light system capable of being used outdoors and on camping trips. 

You can either charge the control box by solar power or you can easily use an AC power source to charge it, so you can easily adapt to the current situation. You get about 12 hours of working time, for the mere charging time of 6 hours.

While being almost perfect, you will notice two things, the cable management can get quite messy, so I really advise you to use them as solar light for sheds. Of course, you can install them wherever you want, it’s just my 2 cents. 

The last thing, you don’t get a warranty but you get a 30-day return period and a very friendly customer service.

Pros

  • IP65 Water and weatherproof
  • Dual charge option (AC and Solar Panel)
  • Ability to charge devices
  • Up to 12 hours of running time
  • A control box
  • Seperate ON/OFF light switches

Cons

  • Have no warranty

10. Yinghao Solar Lights Indoor Home Kit

YINGHAO Solar Lights Indoor Home with 2 Hanging LED Bulbs, 5.5W Solar Panel, Cell Phone Charger, 5000mAh Lithium Battery, Outdoor Waterproof Solar Lights for Garden, Yard, Camping, Shed, Barn, Garage

The Yinghao solar light indoor kit is just great, what I personally like about them is that you get a better looking control box and also the illustrations are helpful and eases the usage. 

As always, you can use the box to charge devices and also you can charge it by solar power or you can opt to use an AC power source to easily adapt.

Coming with a running time of up to 12 hours and charge time as low as 6 hours, the ratio is clearly good, thus you won’t face any trouble with the Yinghao solar powered light kit longevity.

A very appreciated bonus is the 60-Day money back, and the 12-Month product warranty, it’s nice to feel that you are backed by the manufacturer.

The only thing that may count as a con is that the waterproofing technology is IP44, while it’s more than enough and definitely is better than none, but I simply wished for it to have a better waterproofing standard.

Pros

  • Up to 12 hours of running time
  • Dual charge option (AC and Solar Panel)
  • Ability to charge devices
  • A control box
  • Seperate ON/OFF light switches
  • 1-Year warranty and a 60-day money guarantee

Cons

  • IP44 water and weatherproof, which will only protect from splashing water

11. GVshine Solar Powered Indoor Lights Kits

GVSHINE Solar Panel Kit, 9V 12W Portable Solar Panel RV Solar Panel Kit + 4 LED Bulbs + 6000mah Charger Controller + Phone Charger Cable Indoor Outdoor Solar Light for Homes Shed Emergency Camping

The last solar lighting kit we have today is the GVshine solar powered indoors light kit, it comes with a control box capable of charging devices through USB ports and also has an indicator of the current power levels. 

The good thing about the control box is that it became better looking than previous models from GVshine, but that’s not the only improvement as we will see.

What is really good about the GVshine solar light kit is that it’s IP65 waterproof, which means you don’t need to worry about the weather’s state. 

The running time is about 13 hours, but sadly you need about 10 hours for the device to be fully charged, while it’s acceptable, but 10 hours of direct sunlight may not be available all year round.

Another fine bonus is the 1-year warranty you get with the solar shed light, you probably won’t use the warranty as you will be more than satisfied with the solar lighting kit quality.

Pros

  • IP65 water and weatherproof
  • Up to 12 hours of running time
  • Dual charge option (AC and Solar Panel)
  • Ability to charge devices
  • A control box
  • Seperate ON/OFF light switches
  • 1-Year warranty

Cons

  • Needs around 10 hours of sunlight to fully charge

How To Choose The Best Indoor Solar Light?

When it comes to choosing the best solar light, there are a few factors you must consider.

And in this section, we will go through all the key features that make the perfect indoor solar light that isn’t only of high quality, but also cheap.

1. The Solar Panel

This is the heart of your solar light.

It works by absorbing sunlight, transfer it into electricity, then store this electricity in the batteries to power your light at night.

Related Article: How Do Solar Lights Work?

But how would your solar light charge if you are using it indoors?

Well, the answer is pretty simple. The solar panel is separated.

Most indoor solar lights come with a separated solar panel, which is connected to the light’s body via a long cord (about 16ft long).

Having a long cord allows you to mount the solar panel on your roof or outside your shed where it gets a lot of direct sunlight throughout the day.

Further, most separated solar panels are rotatable, which means that you can adjust the panel angle, resulting in more electricity generation than interior solar lights with built in panels.

So, if you are in the market for the best solar powered light for indoors, make sure to opt for a lamp with a separated solar panel and long cord.

2.  Charge Time

The battery capacity in addition to your solar light’s panel wattage and the amount of sunlight you get are responsible for how fast will your light charge.

You can calculate your expected charge time using this simple formula:

Time to fully charge = Battery Capacity in Ah * Battery Voltage / Solar Panel Wattage

For instance, if we have an indoor solar powered light that has a 3.7 Volt, 4400 mAh battery and a 3.5 watt solar panel. Then the time to fully charge would be:

4.4 Ah * 3.7 V3.5 Watt=4.65 hours

Note: It’s important to mention that this is just an estimation calculated under ideal conditions, as the charge speed depends on other hard-to-calculate factors such as sunlight intensity, shading, temperature, wires conduction efficiency, and many more. However, this should give you a rough idea of how efficient this solar light is.

Related Article: Can Solar Lights Charge in Shade?

In general, good quality solar light kits will be able to fully charge within only 5 to 8 hours, so make sure to only opt for the lights in this range.

3. Run Time

Obviously, the best solar powered lights are the ones charging as fast as possible and stay lit from dusk to dawn.

Your light’s run time depends on 2 factors:

  1. The battery capacity
  2. The LED wattage

Here is how to calculate the maximum run time:

Max Run Time =Battery Capacity in Ah * Battery Voltage / LED Wattage

For instance, if our interior solar powered light has a 3.7 Volt, 4400 mAh battery and a 2 watt LED (250 lumens). Then the max run time would be:

4.4 Ah * 3.7 V2 Watt=8.14 hours

As a rule of thumb, the higher your LED wattage is, the more power it needs to stay lit.

Generally, most high quality solar powered lights will have a run time between 8 and 18 hours, depending on the LED wattage and brightness mode.

Related Article: How Long Will Solar Lights Stay On At Night?

Note: Higher LED wattage doesn’t necessarily mean that the light is brighter, as there is a difference between brightness and wattage, as we will see in the next section.

4. Brightness

Brightness is measured in lumens and it’s the amount of visible light emitted by a lamp per second.

In laymen’s terms, the higher the lumens count, the brighter is the light.

Here is how to calculate how many lumens do you need:

First, calculate your room’s square footage by multiplying the width and length of your room.

The second step is to calculate your room foot candle requirements. Here is a quick cheat sheet:

RoomFoot Candles Required
Living Room15
Kitchen General35
Kitchen Stove75
Dining Room35
Bed Room15
Hall Way7
Bathroom70
Shed20
How many foot candles Do I need for a solar indoor light

Finally, you need to multiply the room’s square footage by the number of foot candles required.

For instance, if you want to install your light in the living room (100 square foot), then the required lumens would be 100 * 15 = 1500 lumens.

If the solar light manufacturer doesn’t mention the lumens, then you can simply know it using this chart:

LED WattageLumens
1 Watt70
2 Watt140
3 Watt210
4 Watt280
5 Watt350
6 Watt420
7 Watt490
8 Watt560
9 Watt630
10 Watt700
How many lumens are in different LED wattages

In general, we recommend you to opt for an indoor solar light kit that provides you with around 10-20 lumens for every square foot.

5. Light Temperature

Light temperature is simply the light color emitted by the light bulb. It’s measured in Kelvin and ranging on a scale from 1,000 to 10,000.

LED color temperature for indoor solar lights
LED color temperature for solar lights

Just make sure to choose a solar light with a color temperature that matches your interior design.

6. Lighting Modes

Most solar lights come with different lighting modes that allow you to control both the intensity and the working mode of your light such as chasing, stay on, flashing, fading, etc.

Also, some of them come with a timer, which allows you to adjust the working hours and turn off or on the light automatically after 2 to 8 hours.

All these extra features can be controlled using a remote control, so you can easily adjust your indoors light settings with a touch of a finger.

7. Sealing And Weatherproofing

Because your solar lights are meant to be used outdoors, sealing isn’t really important for the lamp itself.

However, the solar panel needs to be tightly sealed to protect the panel’s electronics from harsh weather conditions such as heavy rain, frost, excessive heat, powerful wind, snow buildup, and many more.

Here is a list of the most common sealing ratings for indoor solar lights:

  • IP44: Protects from splashing water
  • IP65: Protects from low pressure water jets

In general, we recommend you to opt for indoor solar lights with IPX5 or above if you live in a rainy area.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can A Solar Light Be Used Indoors?

Thanks to the separated solar panel, indoor solar lights can be used for homes, sheds, garages, barns, and any indoor areas.

2. Will Solar Lights Charge On A Cloudy Day?

Yes, solar lights will charge on a cloudy day. However, the charging efficiency won’t be very good.

In other words, the solar panel will still produce some electricity, but it won’t be able to fully charge the batteries during the day, resulting in a lower running time than usual.

3. Can A Solar Light Catch Fire?

Solar lights themselves are very safe and they won’t explode or cause a fire. However, some solar lights come with Li-Ion batteries, which are volatile and combustible.

This is because the components of Li-Ion batteries are under huge pressure, so when a metal fragment pierces the battery, the Lithium reacts with the moisture in the air, generating high heat, and sometimes it can explode.

4. Is It Ok To Leave Indoor Solar Lights On All The Night?

Yes, it’s completely fine to leave them on all night.

However, you need to make sure that the solar panel is getting enough sunlight during the day to generate enough electricity to keep the interior lights on from dusk to dawn.

5. Why My Indoor Solar Lighting Kit Isn’t Working?

There are numerous reasons that can stop your solar lights from working such as:

  • Broken sensors
  • Broken wires
  • Faulty battery
  • Nearby light sources
  • Your switch is off
  • Your lights have a pull tub

To help you deal with this problem, we created a definitive, actionable guide on how to fix solar lights.
