Sun Jar


I came upon information about this simple but very interesting and charming solar-powered gadget - Sun Jar, and decided to share it with all my readers. Voted "Gift of the Year 2007", I think that this is a wonderful gift idea for any occasion.

The Sun Jar, designed by Tobias Wong, is made from a traditional Mason jar with a frosted glass container, vacuum-seal latch lid, and energy-efficient lighting. Sun jar collects and stores sunshine so you can use it at night. Inside the jar are a highly efficient solar cell, rechargeable battery and low energy LED lamps. 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 three LED lamps inside. There is no switch on the Sun Jar - a clever light sensor inside automatically activates the light when it gets dark or the light turns out. The amazing Sun Jar can produce up to 5 hours of lighting when bathed in 3 hours of Sun light.

Sun Jar is beautiful, completely waterproof and it is a great for use indoors or outside as a garden or patio light.

You can buy one from Suck UK.
