The Solar Illuminated Address Mailbox generates solar power by day and stores it in batteries that power an LED which illuminates the address display on the mailbox at night. The mailbox has solar panels on top of it, and illuminated address numerals on both sides. The power is automatically cut off by sensors during the day. The sleek and rather oversized mailbox is made of weatherproof plastic and has U.S. Mail written on the front. The openings are at the front and back, secured with the help of magnetic closures. In order for it to work properly, the solar panels need at least two hours of sunlight during the day. That should be enough to recharge the batteries and allow for a full night of illumination.
