Do the TEXASBOARS FEEDERLIGHTS come equipped with solar panels?
NO,
Allow me to explain by providing an example. Look at the big picture here. Lets say instead of purchasing a "light system" with solar panels and fancy switches, you were purchasing a "GUN SYSTEM" already put together from the manufacturer. It includes a sweet $500.00 scope, a $200.00 gunlight, a $100.00 laser sight, and the gun itself:
:arrow: is a $35.00 BB Gun. :shock: :shock:
You think that's a bit dramatic sales pitch :?: Unfortunately it is NOT.
Because with any other feederlight that includes a SOLAR PANEL, Rechargeable battery, motion sensing switch, dusk to dawn sensor, you might be amazed to find out the actual light (the LEDs),, that you USE and NEED to hunt with, are cheap 0.25 Cent chinese LEDs. :idea: The best they can do is illuminate an area about the size of a small kitchen or large table. That's it! So, yeah, a BB gun is a fitting comparison.

When you purchase a gun, do you purchase a BB gun?
Absolutely not. You purchase a quality GUN and then you mount good equipment on that gun.

TEXASBOARS FEEDER LIGHTS uses the same common sense. We don't make BB Guns and market them as hog killers.
We build powerful rugged lights right here in the USA.
We provide a variety of options that can illuminate wide paths 40 yards long or 200 yards long to best suit the customers hunting style from bowhunters to long range open pasture.

:arrow: Can TEXASBOARS FEEDERLIGHTS be used in conjunction with a solar panel?
Absolutely.
:arrow: Can a TEXASBOARS FEEDERLIGHT have an aftermarket automated switch installed if a hunter needed it? Absolutely.
:arrow: :arrow: :arrow: Can a MOTION SENSOR be used?
NO, absolutely not.
WHY? It's simple, the range of a motion sensor is around 20 to 30 feet! Therefore the light itself must be 20 to 30 feet from the bait! That's a disaster in the making.
Besides, why in the world would you choose to sit in the dark and not see?
TEXASBOARS feederlights are not made to be set up on or near the bait. Smarter, older, and bigger animals will not tolerate that, it will and does scare them.
TEXASBOARS FEEDER LIGHTS mount on a "camera platform" (tripod or similar device) at the stand, not the feeder. You simply turn them on when it gets dark, adjust them from the comfort of your stand and watch the baited area without straining your eyes.

Hello
Covering the solar panel will often trick the lights into thinking night time has arrived early and therefore the light will come on. Solar lights typically stay off automatically by day as they are busy converting the light into energy to be stored in the batteries. This energy is then used at night to power the light. If it’s well after dusk and your light hasn’t come on cover the panel, if it does decide to work you know there’s another source of light hitting the solar panel that’s tricking the light into thinking it’s still daylight. Sometimes a subtle tweaking of the panel location can remedy the situation and have your light behaving as it should do.

The solar panels only act to charge the battery. They do not turn the light on, or off. They simply charge the battery. Between the battery and the light you can put a switch that detects light and will turn the light on as it gets dark. The solar panel itself will not turn the light on, or TRICK the light into believing it's dark and magically turn on.

Yeah, the solar panel doesn't affect the ON OFF switch.
Having said that, some commercial security lights have the dusk to dawn module built into the solar panel. So, in that case, if you cover the solar panel you would be covering the light sensor at the same time. So, yeah, in that case it might trip the switch.
