Sun and Moon Jars

Share

Jam jars store jam, these jars store sunshine!

Captured inside the Sun and Moon Jars are a highly efficient
solar cell, a rechargeable battery and a low energy LED. 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 LED lamp inside
the jar.


The light is diffused by the frosted jar and give the appearance
of sunlight emitting from the sun or a cool moon glow (a warm colored
LED light is used to give a more natural and warm light). You may
have noticed that there is no switch on the Sun Jar – in fact there
are no visible controls at all – but there is a clever light sensor
inside that automatically activates the LED when it gets dark or
the lights are turned out! (There is an override switch inside the
lid to turn off the light at night and conserve battery life.)

Mason jars are not only beautiful but by their very nature they
are 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. The Sun Jar needs DIRECT sunshine to work! Leave
the Sun Jar outside or in a sunny window in direct sunlight for
several hours to charge, (electric light indoors is not bright
enough!). The Sun and Moon Jars use a standard AA rechargeable
battery, which is replaceable.

Available as Sun Jar (Yellow), Moon Jar (Blue), or Pink
Moon
