That's the Consol Solar Jar™.

How to make me shine:

During the day it stores solar energy

The principle of this solar light is as simple and fun as it is ingenious: The Consol Solar Jar™ stores energy during the day and releases light at night. Producing light in this way is fun, sustainable and makes it easy to do your bit for the environment.

The Consol Solar Jar™ contains four solar-powered LEDs, which are charged by solar cells in its lid. When placed in direct sunlight, the batteries charge and provide many hours of soft, yet bright lighting without glare.


… lights up the night.

When it gets dark, just turn on the Consol Solar Jar™ using its unique magnetic switch. The four solar-powered LED lights give off a beautiful light that is bright enough for reading.

It’s ideal for garden lighting, decorating your table, barbecues, camping, 'Al Fresco' dining and all other in and outdoor pursuits that would benefit from beautiful lighting to create a wonderful and relaxed atmosphere.
