Suntoy was approached by Consol to design a solar light in a one-litre classic glass preserve jar. Design considerations included durable electronics, re-chargeable batteries, LED lights and a solar panel. Suntoy designed a unique on-off switch that has no moving parts and is watertight. The Consol Solar Jar is primarily a reading light and portable lantern. It is ideal for communities living without electricity off-grid. It also inspires creative table décor as a Theatre in a Jar. On a clear sunny day, a full charging offers six hours of light. On an overcast day, a full charging offers approximately one to three hours of light. An idea that sparked illuminated activations, truly is bottled sunshine. The principle is simple and seductively clever: it stores energy during the day and releases light at night. It’s a fun, eco-friendly and sustainable alternative light supply that makes it easy to go green.
