In addition to the above product performance problems, we also have some problems in the following aspects:

     1. Is the material configuration reasonable?

The installation of a solar street lamp is more sensitive to the environment. For example, the sunshine intensity, rainy days, longitude, and latitude of the project site will affect the charging effect of a solar street lamp. Therefore, a scientific material configuration is more critical. Usually, before providing product solutions, responsible manufacturers will understand the relevant data, so as to formulate product solutions.

      2. Are the materials used authentic?

Some buyers may ask, why are your products so expensive with the same parameters? In fact, the same product will also have medium, high and low-quality standards. For example, the same lithium iron phosphate battery is also divided into A level and B level. B is selected after being eliminated from A. if the product you purchase uses this type of battery of grade B, the stability of quality will certainly have an impact. So it’s important to choose a manufacturer that focuses on quality rather than just providing low-cost products.

   3. How is the production process control?

The production processing technology is also the core points that affect a solar street lamp. Do you choose a solar street lamp manufacturer with sufficient manufacturing experience, and will they improve their products according to the production experience, market, and installation feedback data? If yes, These products will become more and more stable.  Luxman is a manufacturer focusing on the production and manufacture of solar street lamps. We keep a long-term tracking of the performance of the products, and constantly optimize the products we produce, which makes our products stable in quality and competitive in the market.
