The battery is a single unit. When the sensor cover is put on the LED is turned on. Entire lighting system is regulated using the control board attached to the unit.Also,they have cell solar array,which can change sunshine into electricity.And the photo-resistor that helps the device to identify darkness.

How the System Works

Battery of the solar path lights or other solar light fixtures gets charged day time. Even in the faded light during rainy or winter seasons, the battery can get charged well.So don’t worry about the weather.
