Solar Electric NightLight

Yes, damage can occur if a non-rechargeable battery is used. Using a non-rechargeable battery could pose a fire risk, and should be avoided.

Because the Solatube Daylight Dimmer only blocks out 98% of daylight when closed, the Solar Electric NightLight will not trigger the Dusk to Dawn Daylight Sensor to turn on the LED emitters under normal daylight conditions.

However, in less than ideal conditions (overcast/dark, stormy conditions), if the Daylight Dimmer is closed, the Solar Electric NightLight may turn on during the day.

The expected battery life is two years under normal duty cycle.

Remove natural effect lens or softening effect lens by pulling on plastic tab.Reach inside the tube and gently lift up on the Solar Electric NightLight assembly to remove from the mounting bracket. Remove existing rechargeable AA batteries. Replace with two (2) new AA NiMH 1500 mAh 1.2V rechargeable batteries. Insert batteries to the (+) and (-) markings inside the battery pack.Reinstall Solar Electric NightLight onto mounting bracket.Replace effect lens and Decorative Fixture/Diffuser.

The sophisticated Dusk to Dawn Daylight Sensor allows the LED emitters to turn on only when it is dark outside (no daylight coming down the tube).

In extreme overcast or dark, stormy conditions, there may not be enough daylight transferred down the tube.This may cause the Solar Electric NightLight to turn-on during daylight hours.

No. The 30% tax credit is only for the Solatube Daylighting System with the Integrated Solar Electric NightLight and the cost of the installation.Any additional Solatube accessories are not covered by the 26% Federal Tax Credit.

Under ideal conditions, the NightLight should provide gentle illumination throughout the dark hours of the night until the early morning hours when enough daylight is available and collected by the Solatube system.
