This is how the sun glass works
The sun glass solar lamps not only look decorative, but are also very easy to use! We explain step by step how it works:
- Step: Place the solar glass in daylight or in the sun during the day. This means that it can collect energy during the day with the help of a solar sun module. In order to optimally charge the LED lamps, we recommend direct sunlight!
- Step: Set up your solar glass solar lamp in the evening as you wish on your balcony or in the interior of your home.
- Step: Flip the toggle switch. The solar lamp can now release the energy collected during the day into the room via the charged LEDs. Enjoy the soft light! Environmentally conscious and chic in one!

Questions about the sun glass decoration
The mason jars from Sonnenglas are 100% waterproof and can therefore be left outside without hesitation – even when it is raining! However, we do not recommend placing the lamps in water.
Unfortunately, the sun glass does not have an automatic sensor or timer, so the light must always be switched off manually.
The sun glass gives you up to 12 hours of beautiful, atmospheric light.
