Thanks to technology innovation, batteries, and LED lighting are getting smaller.
The smaller size of components means that they can be integrated into more compact units.
All-in-one fixtures require no wiring and are easier to install, involving no complex processes. In other words, you don’t require electrical or specific technical knowledge for the installation.

The low energy consumption of LEDs makes these solar-powered systems to extend their autonomy to 5+ days. Even places with intense rainy seasons or lower irradiance can still benefit from solar canopy street lights.
LEDs can be work with both, split or integrated types.
All-in-one systems, however, have better hurricane/typhoon resistance than split-type. This is due to the compactness of the former.
On the contrary, the split type has the solar panel separated from the lamp, making it more vulnerable to harsh conditions.

Compact systems are easier and cheaper to transport than split ones. In terms of space, you could twofold or threefold your solar street lights load in a container.
Furthermore, given the lower space requirements, the storing costs will also be lower than in the case of the split type.
