Like a jam jar that stores jam, the Sun Jar collects and stores sunshine so that you can use it at night. Leave the Sun Jar outside or in a sunny window in direct sunlight for several hours to charge and the light will automatically come on when it gets dark.
The Sun Jar is made with a traditional Mason jar and high tech energy efficient lighting! Captured inside the jar are a highly efficient solar cell, rechargeable battery and low energy LED lamps. When the jar is placed in direct sunlight the solar cell creates an electrical current that charges the battery over a few hours. This energy is then used at night to power the three LED lamps inside the jar. The light is diffused by the frosted jar and warm coloured LED lights are used to give a more natural and warm light - the light given off is about the same as a candle.
There are no visible controls at all - there is a clever light sensor inside that automatically activates the LED lights when it gets dark or lights are turned out!*
Mason Jars are not only beautiful but by their very nature are completely water tight - so the Sun Jar can happily be left outside in any weather conditions. A perfect garden light or night light for a child's bedroom.
*There is an override switch inside the lid to turn off the light at night if you wish and to conserve battery life.
Dimensions: 100 x 100 x 160mm
