Product Overview

The Gama Sonic Imperial solar outdoor light fixture model GS-97F-GE is the perfect energy-saving and money-saving replacement for post-mounted electric or gas-powered outdoor lighting. This rust-resistant cast-aluminum solar lantern with a powder-coated black finish and real glass fits any existing 3 in. Dia lamp post with no electrical wiring needed. Just install it, add either of the included finials (acorn or eagle), and let the sun do the rest. The Imperial's internal Lithium Ion battery pack charges when sunlight hits the fixture's integrated solar panels. At dusk, eight bright-white LEDs will turn on automatically and in high-brightness mode will shine at 180 Lumens. The light is designed for dusk-to-dawn performance on a full solar charge. When weather makes it challenging to charge the battery to capacity, switch the brightness mode to low. In either mode, Gama Sonic's patented cone reflector enhances the light dispersal and glow. Beyond providing a superior combination of light brightness and duration, Gama Sonic solar light fixtures are known for their physical durability. The Imperial's 4 monocrystalline silicon solar panels are protected by weather resistant, cleanable tempered glass that helps ensure long-lasting reliability. The replaceable, plugged battery pack is good for about 1,000 charges. For unexpected issues, Gama Sonic support in Atlanta is here to help.

  • Powder-coated cast-aluminum construction withstands the tough weather
  • Fits on any existing 3 in. lamp post, which makes replacing an existing gas or electric lamp easy
  • Automatically turns on at dusk
  • Designed for dusk-to-dawn performance when the fixture's lithium ion battery pack is fully charged

Customer Questions & Answers

How many lumens

Asked by: 2230
Not sure about lumens. But they claim equivalent to a 40 watt bulb. It is sufficient light to mark the end of my driveway on full power. It's no reading light.

Customer Reviews

Imperial Solar Black Outdoor LED Post Light on 3 in. Fitter Mount is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install, somewhat cheap quality, unearthly glow These are deceptively large. I assumed they would be about the size of the 30 year old lamps I was replacing, but they are a good bit larger. Double check your dimensions if size is a big concern. The instructions were pretty vague. They mention a high and low setting and the approximate time it should be on at that setting but not what the switch means. The switch has I-O-R. I know I-O are on and off, but R!? There is also some flickering when you flip the switch, almost seems like the connection to the switch is flimsy, but you shouldn't be changing it a lot anyway. The choice of 2 "toppers" is nice, eagle or acorn. The light is a bit more alien than I anticipated also. I knew it was LED, so it would be more white, but its almost a blue/green/white. It is decently bright for a full solar lamp 6' off the ground in the winter. We live between street lights, there are a house or 2 in either direction so our house is pretty dark out front. These mark the driveway pretty well. The light is made up of 5 clusters of LED's, so you don't get a nice big glow like a bulb. It's... different, but beats having an electrician rerun wires from under the house thru the yard. I actually installed these with a pocket knife/multi tool. I used the pliers to cut the wires on the old lamps (make sure power is off!) and used the screw driver to tighten the set screws onto the same mounts the original lamps were on. Done, easy. I plan on repainting the posts so it all matches this spring. I set mine out on the back porch to test them out before mounting, the boxes came pretty damaged. [Bonus: They don't get hot, so I put Red/Green tissue paper in them for the holidays]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely satisfied - great product. Ease of using your web site, ease of purchase, plus free shipping! What more could I want! Beats the heck out of replacing light bulbs in the past lamp! We are required to maintain these as street lights in our community; this will make it a lot simpler. Bottom line? I LOVE it! Yay!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product is clean looking. Like the way it looks, and the light it puts out. But I do recommend that you buy the optional battery pack, so on cloudy days the unit will last longer. RTB

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Looking Light The light seems to be well made. Installation was very easy. No wires to mess with on this light. Reading other reviews, I ordered a 2nd battery and installed it. Light has two settings. The top comes off to select light setting as well as when you have to replace the batteries. Very easy, quite simple to do. The descriptions describes the light output as equivalent to a 60w. bulb. No way is it that bright. On the high setting, it is probably about equivalent to a 25w. bulb. In my case, it would have cost way to much to bury a wire out to the post and install a switch inside the house. So solar offered a cheaper solution. Time will tell about how long it last.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not totally Satisfied Purchased about a month ago. Easiest installation ever. Thought I'd get at least 4-5 hours out of the lights since they are LEDs and thus low voltage consumption. Never seem to get more than 2-3 hours. Even on the "high" setting it isn't all that bright. This is the second one I bought. Returned the first one as it had chips on the paint. I cannot recommend this item since the light goes off after a short period. This happens even after a full day of sunshine. I may be returning this one as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outdoor Solar LED Post Light Great light and easy installation. The light output is comparable to the gas lamp that it replaced. Good looking fixture and very easy to install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solar Post Light Very easy to install - less than 20 minutes. Doesn't put out a lot of light, but helps to keep it from being so dark on the street.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solar lamp. Lamp was very simple to install. There are two battery compartments but only one battery is included. We purchased another battery from the manufacturer (about $14). When it gets good sunlight it will shine all night at high power. The light is sufficient to mark the end of the driveway. We are happy with it.
