Sonnenglas Solar Jar is Greatest Mother's Day 2018 Tech Gift In Many Ways

This Solar powered LED Lantern and Table Light is the perfect Mother's Day gift.

Here is a great Mother's Day gift that is not just tech gadget, but so much more. The Sonnenglas Solar Jar is a solar-powered LED Lantern and Table Light. The Sonnenglas is on sale on for $34.99.

The Sonnenglas is has a bright LEDs integrated in the lid of a mason jar. A solar cell on top 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 (I adore the simplicity here) 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.

The retro style of the glass Jar in combination with the Earth-friendly way of charging is already neat, the social aspect behind Sonnenglas makes the Solar Jar by Consol a truly mindful gift. The Sonnenglas is a genuine Fair Trade product, handmade in South Africa. The company employs over 60 previously unemployed people from the townships and promotes their training and education.

That's not all. The Sonnenglas was invented to prevent fires in the townships. Before Solar Jar, people used candles in their huts when the government shut down the power. This caused many fires where people lost everything they had. With the Solar Jar the townships have become much safer.

To top things off, the glas and the metal used to make the Sonnenglas are recycled. When you gift the Sonnenglass to your mum, you have plenty to tell her about it.

Put the Solar Jar in the sun for a couple hours before bringing it to your mother. This way the Jar lamp is ready to use. I own one since a couple of days and I love the way the light breaks through the thick glass wall of the jar. The Sonnenglas can also be customized. You can put shells, stones or a letter inside the jar. When you close the jar again, you just need to make sure to align the dot with the magnet.

The Sonnenglas is on sale on for $34.99. See also our round-up of the best deals on Mother's Day gifts at Sam's Club and a fresh guide on unique Mother's Day gifts under $100. Don't forget, Mother's Day 2018 is on May 13.
