Over the past few months, we have begun shipping our ‘Series II’ model SL-15, SL-60, SL-70, and SL-75 marine lanterns.
These lights are now being fitted with next-generation solar modules, that utilise an increased surface area within the lantern and higher efficiency photovoltaic cells. Solar cell efficiency refers to the portion of energy in the form of sunlight that can be converted via photovoltaics into electricity.
This improvement is resulting in approximately 15 – 60% solar charging improvement, depending on the model.
In practical terms, the improved charging performance allows the lanterns to be installed in poorer sunlight regions or operate on more demanding duty cycles.
Whilst the Sealite part numbers remain unchanged, customers can distinguish the next-generation solar modules by being darker in colour and their performance is reflected in the ‘Series II’ identification within the online solar calculator here.
As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15 ™S) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order with Dana shortly keep up the good work.

We choose to sell Sealite … this is a long story, well we treat Sealite as our own and the relationship we have developed with Jeff and Chris and their attitude and commitment towards growing Sealite to this stage is remarkable. We feel at home when talking to them and the staff of Sealite and this in turn gives us more security and strength in selling products in India.

I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.
