Some of you may remember a while back that I won a range of Consol products, see my previous post: Consol Glass – “It’s good. It’s in glass.” Consol recently launched a new and exciting product, The Solar Jar, so you can imagine my delight when I was offered a Solar Jar to add to my collection.
New Consol Solar Jar
I am always looking for new and efficient ways to conserve electricity, as well as take care of the environment. Well, this new product does all these things, and it looks good too!

A bit of insight from Consol Glass about this product:
“Many South Africans are without adequate electricity supply. Those who do have electricity are subject to the inconsistent power supply, due to load shedding and power outages. This prompted leading glass manufacturer Consol Glass to provide an alternative lighting solution. One that is not only safe but sustainable and easy to use.
The Solar Jar is made up of a solar-powered light housed safely in the classic Consol jar. Fitted with solar-powered LED lights, the lid also contains solar panelling. When placed in sunlight, it powers the LED batteries. The charge lasts for almost six hours before it needs to be recharged. It also has a switch on the lid for the user’s control, proving that the Jar is energy-efficient and safe to use.
The Consol Solar Jar is perfect for when the lights go out, for patio dining, or romantic dinners, camping, in fact, any outdoor activity that needs soft, safe lighting. From this it is clear that the uses for this innovative new creation are endless, making the Consol Solar Jar a timeless piece.”
