How it works
Just as jam jars store jam, the Sun Jar stores sunshine.
You sit the jar on your windowsill during the day, then when it
gets dark the Sun Jar automatically turns itself on and glows with
the day's sunshine.
Sun Jar contains a solar charging panel and low energy LED light
bulb which produces a sumptuous orange or blue glow, with an auto
light-sensitive on/off switch.

How to use your Sun Jar
Automatic Switch On
- The Sun Jar has a built-in light sensor, and switches on and off
automatically when it gets dark or light. The Sun Jar MUST be in
the dark to light up. It is not possible to set the jar to
illuminate during daylight or in a lit room.
- The Sun Jar battery needs sun to become fully charged, and your Sun
Jar will probably need charging before its first use.
- The best way to charge the battery is with the Sun Jar switched
OFF; lift the metal lever to release the lid and put the switch
next to the solar panel in the up position.
- Leave your Sun Jar outside or in a sunny window in DIRECT SUNLIGHT
to charge. It will require several hours and, in overcast
conditions, we recommend charging for several days.
- The Sun Jar can also charge when in auto switch on mode (switch
- The Sun Jar will charge - slowly - in very bright artificial light.
A lamp aimed directly over the jar for a couple of hours will speed
the charging process, but normal indoor electric light is not
- Rechargeable batteries have a long, but not indefinite, life. After
many charges, the battery may lose its ability to store energy.
- To replace the battery: Open the Sun Jar and lift out the rubber
insert and solar panel. The battery is on the underside of the
solar panel; remove and replace the battery with a standard AA
rechargeable battery. (Never use a non-rechargeable battery in your
- You may find that in Winter, or during cloudy weather, your Sun Jar
illuminates for less time than usual, flickers, or does not light
up. In times of prolonged bad weather (when there is not enough
natural sun to charge your Sun Jar) you can remove the battery and
charge it in a normal battery charger.
Manual Off Switch
- If you do not want your Sun Jar to light up when it gets dark,
press the switch next to the solar panel to the OFF (up) position.
- Switching the Sun Jar off overnight will conserve the battery life.
- Kilner Jars have a watertight seal, so your Sun Jar can be left
outside in wet weather.
- After a long time outside, condensation may build up in the jar.
This will not damage the Sun Jar. To remove any moisture build-up,
open the lid and ease out the inner workings, empty out the water
and replace the inner.
