      The first step is to estimate the watt-hours of the set of LEDs. From that, determine the battery size, allowing a margin to assure battery life. Then, and I have never done it, specify a panel and charge controller to connect the batteries to the panel. There is an estimator for what you might expect to get from some solar panels in Houston here <http://www.promotingevs.com/CaseStudyForCars.html>

      Subject: [hreg] Solar Landscape Lights

      I have a very large, nicely landscaped and dark yard. I want to install some good quality LED landscape lights to light up the yard nicely. But I don't want the wimpy lights that have their own little solar panel on them. These tend to only last a few hours at night and fade away really fast. I don't want the low quality stuff that you can buy at your local home improvement store. I want to have a real solar panel attached to some real 12 volt battery(s) that will last all night at full power.

      Can someone help me plan such a project or point me in the direction of a place that sells kits like this?

      Thank you in advance for any help.
