Anybody have a link, site, name that sells solar lights(up light) for a (35')flag pole.
She has been thru the big box store kind. Looking for a high end style & quality. Or any tips on power, size, style for this application.

Hmmmmm I saw a really nice maglite at lowes. If you dig a little hole you can probably install it to grade and it would be like a well light.

There is no such thing as a "solar light" that will provide you with the power required to effectively light a 35' tall flagpole.

There is no such thing as a "solar light" that offers "high end style and quality".

Bill, at the very minimum you will need to use 3 quality LV fixtures and a transformer. Depending on your ambient light levels, you will use 35W FMW or FRA lamps in those fixtures. You need to trianglulate the light pattern in order to capture the flag (avg size) in any position that it might fly.

Best of luck.

Go over to Larchmonts in Manchester, they will hook you up with the Nightscaping low voltage product that will do the trick.
