Sun Jar


The Sun Jar collects and stores sunshine so you can use it at night! Simply leave the Sun Jar in a sunny window during the day for about 5 hours of warm glowing light at night.


How does it work? An ingenious combination of old and new, the Sun Jar is made from 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.


There is no switch on the Sun Jar — no visible controls at all — instead, a clever light sensor inside automatically activates the light when it gets dark or the light turns out. Magical!


The beautiful frosted glass Mason jar is 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! Original design by Tobias Wong. As seen in DailyCandy.

The green gift of the year!
