How to make me shine:

During the day it stores solar energy

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.

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 charge and provide many hours of soft, yet bright lighting without glare.


… lights up the night.

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

It’s ideal for garden lighting, decorating your table, barbecues, camping, 'Al Fresco' dining and all other in and outdoor pursuits that would benefit from beautiful lighting to create a wonderful and relaxed atmosphere.

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.
