Added angled lid for better sunlight and clean off of solar panel.Photo added as well.
I've uploaded a newer version of the STL files. I've increased the size of holes for mounting with fence screws. I've also adjusted the solar panel slot for 50x50mm panel to be tighter, and loosened lid a tad so its not to tight now.
Complete remake of:
which is a 60x60mm solar panel
But I found the 50x50mm solar panels are easier to get and about the same current as 60x60. So adjusted the full size of light, but it looks close to 60x60mm light housing but just a tad skinnier.
I needed some bright long life lights for an outdoor fence. This is one style I designed just for this purpose. After several tests and revisions, they work great.. Even at 4am I go out and they are still on. This is designed for 50x50mm 2v solar panel, very common on ebay or aliexpress.
Schematics for 1 Watt led solar light is here:
1) yx805 solar light chip
1) 33uH inductor
1) 1 watt led (low enough ma so no heat sink needed)
1) (approx) 600-1800ma nicad battery
1) 50x50mm 2v solar cell
