Gallery: SOLAR POWERED MOON JAR by Tobias Wong


Ever wish you could bottle moonlight to light up your room at night? Well, now you can with the Moon Jar. We’ve written about the Sun Jar on Inhabitat before – the cute and clever solar powered jar lamp which has been around for a couple of years garnering fans and design accolades. If you liked the concept but found the Sun Jar too yellow and sunny for your tastes, now there is a cool blue-hued version of the same design called the ‘Moon Jar’.

We think these would make ideal nightlights for a kid’s room, and have a review over on Inhabitots explaining our thoughts:


Designed by Tobias Wong, the Moon Jar employs the same parts and functionality as the Sun Jar: you stash it on a windowsill to collect the sun’s rays during the day, which are then converted into energy to light up your room at night. Whereas the Sun Jar uses a warm amber colored LED, the MoonJar uses a blue LED for a cooler moonlight effect.

I just ordered one of these for my baby’s room and I’m excited to check it out!

    I would love to get one of these to hang off a tall walking stick for hikes at night 😀

    You can also get both the Sun and Moon Jar on for a few bucks less. ($35) (Sun Jar is out of stock till 9/1.)

    For the more adventurous, make your own.

    The first place they were ever mass produced was the UK, through SUCK UK:

    That’s brilliant. Do you know if they sell these in the UK?
