Jam jars store jam, the Sun Jar collects and stores sunshine so that you can use it at night! Made with a traditional Mason jar and high tech energy efficient lighting. Inside the jar is a highly efficient solar cell, a rechargeable battery and low energy LED lamps. When the jar is placed in 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 gives the appearance of sunlight. You may have noticed that there is no switch on the sun jar, in fact there are no visible controls at all. There is a clever light sensor inside that automatically activates the lights when it gets dark or lights are turned out!
Mason Jars are not only beautiful but by their very nature they are completely water tight so the Sun Jar can happily be left outside in any weather condition. A perfect garden light or night light for a kids bedroom. There is an override switch inside the lid to turn off the light at night and conserve battery life. Needs direct sunlight to work automatic operation at night.
The Sun Jar should last between 4-6 hours, depending on the day.
