solar led light kit for Pagoda Lantern

Postby RubyTuesday49 » Sep 24, 2012 11:54 pm

I bought this cement Pagoda Garden lantern / statue and I would like to put a little led light inside it and have a small solar pad outside powering it. Does anyone know where I can get one? Tried Googling it but so far haven't found one.

Seems to be the only thing I can find with an external (wired) solar panel. 50$

Or you can place these around the base of in in the garden:

50 bucks as well.

1st one seems better suited for what you want to do.

I'm not sure if you could buy the 1.99 solar lights from Rona (or walmart, or other), take it apart and somehow run a wire to the bulb while keeping the solar panel outside in the light. Will cost you $1.99 to find out and then take it apart to see if it can be done.

I'm not seeing anything smaller.

I agree.... if you are handy with Magivering things that is the way too go. One thing I would try to avoid is mounting the Solar panel right on the piece ( I think it detracts from the appearance). I would mount the panel off the side on a small post or such and run wire to the light

Love your new Pagoda! My old Pagoda is very similar to yours. : )

Sorry, not trying to hijack your post Ruby, but I too have been looking for a way to light up the windows in my old Pagoda.

Marc, $50. is too expensive for me but maybe at this time of the year, there could be some good sales on solar lights. Fifty per cent off would be ideal. I have the day off work so I will go looking.

Your Pagoda lantern is very similar to mine! I love it! I was thrilled to find mine at a local Flea Market - for $18! It's about 24" tall. $50 is too rich for me - I will have to maybe try buying a cheap one from Wally World and then try to figure out how to re-vamp it. I agree - I don't want to detract from the Pagoda so I will put the solar panel somewhere close by. I don't know how to do this but I'm up for the challenge!! ;-)

A fellow told me at Rona that every Spring they get what I was looking for - but they go quickly - I went there every few days and they never did get them in. The fellow said for some reason they didn't come in! So, I'm still looking!! :-)
