This Solar Lamp Preserve Jar from SONNENGLAS is not just an innovative light source but also a social business model. As a genuine Fair Trade product, SONNENGLAS is handmade in South Africa and employs over 60 previously unemployed people from the townships and promotes their training and education. SONNENGLAS was designed as a source of light for parts of Africa with no access to the power grid.
SIMPLY INGENIOUS. WITH UP TO 12 HOURS OF LIGHT
SONNENGLAS harvests the sun’s energy during the day and stores it in the built-in battery. In the evening you can switch on SONNENGLAS with the magnetic switch and enjoy the bright light from 4 high-efficiency LEDs that transform the jar into a lantern with a lighting capacity of up to 12 hours after a full solar charge. This way of generating light is fun, independent and provides a simple option for ecological living.
CAN BE DECORATED AND FINISHED WITH YOUR INDIVIDUAL TOUCH
The highlight: the solar panel in the screw-top lid of SONNENGLAS allows you to decorate the 1 litre glass jar any way you please. You can fill it with fruit, sand, dried flowers, shells and holiday souvenirs… There are no limits to your imagination. Perfect as an individual gift with a real wow effect.
The sun isn’t shining? SONNENGLAS is equipped with a USB port. Now you can charge it with any micro-USB mobile phone charger.
