Firefly Magic® is designed to be used indoors and out! Please check out our simple how to guide for setting up your display.
Firefly Magic Firefly Lights are designed to operate effectively with only 2 - 3 hours of direct sun on the Solar Panel Assembly during the day. This amount of sun will maintain a full charge in the two AA rechargeable batteries.
If the unit receives more than 2 - 3 hours of sun per day, that's not a problem.
However, if the unit is receiving less sun, and the 'Fireflies' begin to get dim at night, see our section on Outdoor Use in the Shade just below.
Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights are designed for year around outdoor entertainment in temperatures from 0°F to 140°F.
However, in harsh winter climates it is recommended that the 'Fireflies' be brought indoors. This is because extremely low temperatures can cause plastic to become brittle and break. In addition, low temperatures can shorten rechargeable battery life - see BATTERY INFORMATION.
Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights are designed to need for approximately 2-3 hours of direct sunlight to directly land on the solar panel each day (average).
Through the year, as the sun's location in the sky changes (seasonal changes), sometimes a sunny location in the yard becomes a shady location. If this happens, it is still possible the solar panel will collect enough solar energy to keep the rechargeable batteries charged.
Because of our unique patented design, the 'Fireflies' can actually continue operating for several days with a very minimal amount of sunlight striking the laminated high efficiency solar panel.
However, if the fireflies begin to get dim, or stop working, it means the batteries are not receiving a sufficient charge from the solar panel, due to insufficient sunlight striking the panel.
There are two solutions for this problem:
1) Relocate to Solar Panel Assembly to a location where it will receive the 2 -3 hours of direct sunlight directly on the solar panel each day.
2) If it is not possible to place the Solar Panel where it will receive direct sunlight, then convert the unit to a standard battery operated device. You can easily do this by removing the two rechargeable AA batteries and replace them with two standard AA heavy duty alkaline batteries.
The AA Alkaline batteries will supply enough energy to operate the Model FMS-14 unit continuously for approximately 4 weeks, and the FMS-7 unit for approximately 6 weeks. When the 'Fireflies' begin to get dim, immediately install new batteries to eliminate damage to the unit.
CAUTION - WHEN USING STANDARD AA ALKALINE BATTERIES, BE SURE TO COVER THE SOLAR PANEL SO SUNLIGHT WILL NOT TRY TO CHARGE THE ALKALINE BATTERIES.
CAUTION -NEVER LEAVE DEAD ALKALINE BATTERIES IN THE UNIT AS THEY WILL DEGRADE AND POSSIBLY LEAK ACID, CAUSING PERMANENT DAMAGE NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY.
Firefly Magic® has completely redesigned the new version of Firefly Lights to work both outdoors with solar energy and also indoors with standard AA - Alkaline batteries.
Simply open the battery compartment on the back of the Solar Panel Assembly, remove the two AA rechargeable batteries and install two AA Alkaline batteries.
The Model FMS-14 will operate continuously on two heavy duty AA Alkaline batteries for approximately 4 weeks. The Model FMS-7 will operate continuously for approximately 6 weeks. By turning the 'Fireflies' off during the day by using the ON-OFF switch on the Solar Panel Assembly, the batteries will last much longer.
Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights can be used permanently indoors in trees and plants, or they can be used temporarily for parties and events. The 'Fireflies' can be placed in table top displays, centerpieces, draped on walls, or hung from the ceiling.
With imagination, Firefly Magic® Firefly Lights will bring any event to life with magical results.
CAUTION - NEVER LEAVE DEAD ALKALINE BATTERIES IN THE UNIT AS THEY WILL DEGRADE AND POSSIBLY LEAK ACID, CAUSING PERMANENT DAMAGE NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY.
