The Consol Solar Jar™

Green high-tech technology in a traditional mason jar.

The consol solar jar is an eco friendly solar light that literally provides bottled sunshine. The solar-powerd lid collects sunshine during the day. At night, it powers 4 built-in LEDs inside the glass jar. This makes the solar jar perfect as a patio or camping light, for romantic dinners and barbecues or a atmospheric garden lightning.
