Suck Uk: Sun Jar

Sold out
$35.95

Use outside or indoors
A perfect garden light or night light for a bedroom. Mason Jars are traditional, beautiful and watertight by their very nature, so the Sun Jar can with stand even the wettest of summers. Frosted glass diffuses the light, giving the ambient appearance of sunlight.

Charging
The battery needs sun to fully charge, and your Sun Jar may need charging before its first use. Leave outside or in a sunny window in DIRECT SUNLIGHT for several hours. In overcast conditions we recommend charging for a few days.

Manual Switch Off
If you do not want your Sun Jar to light up when it gets dark, lift the metal lever to release the lid and set the switch to "Charge" mode. This conserves battery life whilst continuing to charge it. (The Sun Jar also charges in "Auto" mode)

Winter
Bad weather is bad news for Sun Jars! In winter, or cloudy weather, your Sun Jar may illuminate for less time than usual, or may not light up at all. When there is not enough sunlight, you can remove the battery and charge it in a normal battery charger.

The Battery
Rechargeable batteries have a long, but not indefinite, life. After many charges, they may lose the ability to store energy. Open the Sun Jar, lift out the solar panel, replace with a standard AA rechargeable battery (never use a non-rechargeable battery).
