After reading hundreds of reviews & testing most of the string lights, we have come across these 5 handpicked solar-powered Christmas lights.

1. JMEXSUSS 2 Pack Solar String Light

The first one on our list is a string light from JMEXSUSS. It is a 75.5 ft long string with over 200 LEDs. It is quite long & can be a great fit for a Wedding, Christmas, New Year celebrations, or any other special occasion.

Additionally, It comes with 5 different variants: Blue, Green, White, Yellow & Multi-color. Along with that, it also comes in 8 different modes: combination, in a wave, sequential, slow glow, chasing/flash, slow fade, twinkle/flash & steady on.

What I like most about these string lights is the length of string, i.e. 12 meters. Cons include small solar panels that absorb very little sunlight & thus only 3-4 hours of backup at night.

Pros:

  • 8 different modes.
  • Withstand heavy rain & even snowfall.
  • Length of over 12m.

Cons:

  • Solar panels are small.
  • Only 3-4 hours of backup at night.
  • The battery might not charge on a cloudy day.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

2. Solar Mason Jar Christmas Lights

Solar mason jars come second into our list. However, it is one of my favorite solar-powered lights. These jars give an attractive look both outdoors & indoors.

The best thing about them is that these solar-powered Christmas Jars have built-in solar panels (in the lids) & a smart light sensor. This sensor automatically turns the lights on at night.

Also, the charging time is normal – around 4 to 6 hours. However, the output is outstanding, i.e. 8-10 hours when fully charged.

One thing that you might not admire is that it comes in a single color, i.e. Warmth white.

Pros:

  • Smart Light Sensors – turns the light automatically at night.
  • Waterproof design.
  • Only 4-6 hours of charging time.
  • 8-10 hours of output when fully charged.

3. Solar Star String Lights

It is quite similar to the normal solar-powered string lights except for the fact that the bulb is in the shape of a star. Using this string light in your garden will give you a feel of twinkling stars.

Along with that, it also comes with a complete solar power system that includes a AA battery and a 4×4 inches solar panel.

The best thing about these string lights is the large size of solar panels & the long-lasting battery that comes with them.
