Make Some Sunshine with A Solar Sun Jar

Come on … be Happy … make a little sunshine!   These are so cool.   We love these little Solar Sun Jars. Just keep outside for a few hours and then have a few extra hours of sunshine.    How great for a kids bedroom or an outdoor party.

Made with a traditional Mason jar and high tech energy efficient lighting.  Inside the jar are a highly efficient solar cell, 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 give 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 conditions. 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.

Happily these Sun Jars are available at Amazon for $29.99 as they are almost twice as much elsewhere.
