I got a couple solar powered battery banks along with some lighted plant pots at a garage sale but the batteries were dead so I decided to repair and repurpose them.I did not expect much for the price that we paid at a garage sale for these huge LED lighted plant pots. But to me the solar panels were worth every penny anyway so I grabbed them without hesitation.My wife is using the pots for plants so that is no loss.The solar panels have two switches on the bottom along with a power wire. I figured there must be a rechargeable battery inside so I set it out in the sun to charge for a few days but nothing happened. The batteries are dead.Today I decided to open them up and see what type of batteries were inside. I expected Lithium Ion batteries but I think these are older and have old ni mh batteries instead.There is a pair of 1.2 volt 2200 mah AA batteries soldered together.I got a battery holder and put in some good AA rechargeable batteries and then soldered the battery holder to the original plug and put the entire thing back together.I got the original LED lights to work.

I got a couple solar powered battery banks along with some lighted plant pots at a garage sale but the batteries were dead so I decided to repair and repurpose them.

I did not expect much for the price that we paid at a garage sale for these huge LED lighted plant pots. But to me the solar panels were worth every penny anyway so I grabbed them without hesitation.

My wife is using the pots for plants so that is no loss.

The solar panels have two switches on the bottom along with a power wire. I figured there must be a rechargeable battery inside so I set it out in the sun to charge for a few days but nothing happened. The batteries are dead.

Today I decided to open them up and see what type of batteries were inside. I expected Lithium Ion batteries but I think these are older and have old ni mh batteries instead.

There is a pair of 1.2 volt 2200 mah AA batteries soldered together.

I got a battery holder and put in some good AA rechargeable batteries and then soldered the battery holder to the original plug and put the entire thing back together.

I got the original LED lights to work. But I am going to use this solar powered battery pack for one of my security projects.

Maybe I can make a LED lighted epoxy coffee coaster one day with the LEDs.
