The Consol Solar Jar™

Green high-tech technology in a traditional mason jar.
That's the Consol Solar Jar™.

The Consol Solar Jar™ is an eco-friendly solar light that literally provides bottled sunshine. The solar-powered lid collects sunshine during the day. At night, it powers 4 built-in LEDs inside the glass jar. This makes the solar jar perfect as a patio or camping light, for romantic dinners, barbecues or just simple atmospheric garden lighting.

How to make me shine:

During the day it stores solar energy

Green high-tech technology in a traditional mason jar.
That's the Consol Solar Jar™.

The principle of this solar light is as simple and fun as it is ingenious: The Consol Solar Jar™ stores energy during the day and releases light at night. Producing light in this way is fun, sustainable and makes it easy to do your bit for the environment. And the Consol Solar Jar™ will light up the dark for years to come. The Consol Solar Jar™ contains four solar-powered LEDs, which are charged by solar cells in its lid. When placed in direct sunlight the batteries are charged and provide many hours of soft, yet bright lighting without glare.

The Consol Solar Jar™ is ideal for garden lighting, decorating your table and other areas, barbecues, camping, alfresco dining and all other outdoor pursuits that would benefit from beautiful lighting to create a wonderful and relaxed atmosphere.


… lights up the night.

When it gets dark, you can turn on the Consol Solar Jar™ using its unique magnetic switch. The four solar-powered LED lights give off a beautiful light. A light bright enough for reading!

Personalise your Consol Solar Jar™ any way you like. Fill it with fruit, sand, dried flowers, shells, pebbles... There are endless possibilities. Just use your imagination.

Meet our team

Jean Phillippe Daulaud, a French national, has lived in Mauritius for quite a few years and upon spending his honeymoon in Cape Town in 2012, he stumbled across a Consol Solar Jar for the first time.

JP was so fond of his new discovery, that he purchased two before returning to Mauritius. That was 3 years ago. At the end of 2014, JP would have drinks with Nick Wiehe, an Irish national. They became good friends and spoke about business ideas for the Consol Solar Jar.

They decided on a plan to distribute the Consol Solar Jars to the exclusivity niche market they had identified - The Indian Ocean Islands.
