Cheapest i have ever seen this!
As you need to use the attached voucher for this no Quidco (Cashback) is available.

******************

Leave in direct sunlight for several hours either outside or in a sunny window then once the sun goes down or the lights go out it glows, just as if you've trapped the power of the sun inside. It a natural light, glowing blue in colour and with a similar brightness to a candle. Perfect as subtle garden light for those evening BBQs or as a child's night light in their bedroom.

How It Works

Inside the jar is a solar cell, rechargeable battery and low energy LED lamps. When the jar is placed in sunlight and the sun hits the solar cell it creates an electrical current that charges the battery over a few hours. This energy is then used at night to power the three LED lamps inside the jar. It looks likes the glow of sunlight due to the frosted glass. There is no visible switches on the jar as there is a clever light sensor inside that automatically activates the lights when it gets dark or lights are turned out! The jar is also water tight so it can be left out in any weather.

There is an override switch inside the lid to turn off the light at night and conserve battery life.

Plus £5 P&P, so not quite such a bargain - unless there are free P&P codes doing the rounds? still looks like a nice product, though

As I said, shipping is 99p and NOT £5!

Isn't this what all solar-powered garden lights do?:?

Or am I missing something .......

Yes, exactly - but without the cutesy, twee advertising copy. Think of it as an extra tax on people who like that sort of thing

" ... there is a clever light sensor ..." sigh :-(

Thats ok. Much respect for coming back to the thread to correct yourself!

Edited out...

really cool got one from firebox when they were on offer abt a year ago, I think I seen them for 10.99 at some gadet shop in trafford centre.

They're easy to make yourself! I made one from a £1 poundshop garden light, and a jar I had in the kitchen. I removed the nasty blue/white LED from the garden light and soldered a nice orange one (20p) into it. Clearly not as good as the bought one (I have one of those too), but you can knock about 4 or 5 of them up yourself for the price of the bought one!

I vote hot btw, as I paid way more than £13 for mine.
