Best Gift Ever

This is a gift that keeps on giving. I have purchased them several times for family members with cottages. They LOVE these solar lamps.
Love it!

I was so impressed in these solar lights. They work just as presented and look great on my porch with pumpkins and mums. The only suggestion I might have is to tone down the LED light a bit. Maybe a soft glow would be better than bright light.
LOVE this lantern!

This is a quality product. Looks great and works wonderfully. I love that I can set it in the sun in the morning and then use it all night long. I’m going to order more! Want to try putting seashells in it to make it even more decorative.
A must have!

I bought them for my patio to have a light to brighten things up and then found bringing one inside to my bathroom for a great bright night lite. Great to have them on hand for an electrical outage...
Looks good so far...

Exactly as described in the Ad... bought for summer evenings in the back yard, so no actual use experience yet. But until late Spring they're indoors ready to spring into emergency power outages as lamps.

Solar-Powered LED Light

It’s sunshine in a jar. This 100% recyclable mason jar holds four solar-powered LEDs; inside the lid are solar cells. Simply place it in direct sunlight to charge the batteries, then flip the magnetic switch for hours of bright, soft light. Founder Harald Schultz, affectionately known as "Mr. Sunshine," put his solar industry knowledge to work for the greater good. These mason jar lamps have brought newfound skills, living wages, and passion for solar technology to South African workers. And they provide a safe, sustainable alternative to kerosene lamps.


The SONNENGLAS® solar-powered LED light was created by Stefan Neubig as a safe, sustainable alternative to kerosene lamps that are often the only source of light for for people with no access to electricity. The light casts a soft glow that is just the right brightness to read by or lighten up spots, like a patio. Add decorative pebbles, flowers, or your favorite touches to make it more personal.

Stefan partnered with engineer Harald Schultz to produce the lights in Johannesburg, South Africa. They use 100% recyclable glass and solar cells that can charge the four LED lights with just a few hours of exposure to the sun.

SONNENGLAS® is dedicated to exploring ways to make renewable energy a stronger part of our everyday lives, as well as giving back to the folks who make the light. Their workforce, predominantly undereducated and unemployed, now receive a living wage and training, so they are better able to pursue a brighter future. more Their Story
