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.

Cute lamp


I bought this for a friend; she loves it.


Lovely light


I bought two of these and am very pleased with them. I mostly use them outdoors, but have brought one up to the bedroom, where it makes a very pleasing nightlight.More > < Less


Love it!!


The description said it was bright and you could read by it, and that was spot on. As well as being very nice to look at. A nifty gift for someone.


Lighting up our back yard.


In the short time we've had our sonnenglas lights we have enjoyed using them as we eat dinner outside as the sky darkens. They work very well and are a clever design. We charge them on the patio each day and they light our table in the evenings.More > < Less




This device has gotten us through hurricanes and power shortages. Always dependable. Long lasting. Highly recommended.
