The Sun Jar – Great Garden Lighting Gadget

sunjar.jpg
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 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 emitting from the (warm coloured LED lights are 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 – 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.

Sun Jars need 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!).

What Girlie Gossip Thought

We will be looking at garden lighting idea’s over the next few months and this fantastic Sun Jar is one of the most fun idea’s we have come accross. They are waterproof so you can leave them outside in your garden and when the sun goes down the will give off a nice soft glow. This would be perfect for a cool lighting effect or just an alternative to a candle to go on your garden table. They do work best with nice bright sunlight obviously, but we left ours out on a relatively cloudy day and it did still produce a glow.

It would definately be an ideal lighting soloution for those summer months and this fun energy efficient sun jar is great for the environment!
