 Product Description

Developed in collaboration with a science teacher from Pennsylvania, our build your own solar LED Jar light is a fun and creative way to teach and learn about solar electricity. Use your own mason jar or recycled jar and build a colorful LED light that automatically comes on at night and goes off at dawn. Choose from 5 different color LED's. I prefer to use a wide-mouth mason jar or anything that is wide enough for the battery pack. 

For optimum brightness the white jar light kit now comes with a 5V 80mA solar panel and 3-AAA battery pack. This kit is an additional $2.00 to cover costs for the additional battery, larger holder and larger solar panel.

 Comes with everything you need.

This kit requires soldering. Tools needed are soldering iron, solder & flux, hot glue gun, electric drill.

  • 3V 70mA Polycrystalline Solar Panel
  • Dusk/dawn circuit board
  • 2 Bright 5mm LED's
  • 2 AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries
  • Battery holder and wires. 

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this kit are being donated to help provide solar lighting solutions to disadvantaged communities in Africa.

Also available: Our Pre-wired version of this kit for younger students.
