Most people in the traffic safety industry who know a decent amount about solar barricade lights can tell the brand of light just by looking at it, which means the main difference is in fact the design.  This doesn’t mean that some of the specs like how long they last are not different, but just suggests that they aren’t as varied as you may think.

The way it works is that the solar panels are designed to charge an internal battery which then holds the charge for a certain amount of time.  After 3+ years the battery dies, and on some models you can get new batteries by contacting the manufacturer.

Another suggestion is to do a quick search on the internet.  There is an abundance of resources available on the net so don’t think you won’t find what you are looking for!

Because I am in the traffic safety industry, I understand how much these items cost, and I am always shocked by the amount of money spent.  The government must invest millions in some of these projects.

Also, if you are searching for a specific type of barricade light, type that exact name into the engine.  You may find that there are different results, which may be cheaper, when you get more specific.
