Twilight Jar - Pink
The Sun, Moon and Twilight Jars are ingenious and rather charming lighting concepts from designer Tobias Wong. Just as jam jars store jam, the Sun Jar stores sunshine. The Moon Jar also stores sun, which might be a little confusing, but it's because it gives off a soft blue light at night rather than a warm glow. To confuse matters even more we've finally got our hands on the beautifully dusky Twilight Jar, which also stores sunlight. Simply sit the jars on your windowsill during the day, then when it gets dark they automatically turn themselves on and glow with the day's sun. The jars contain a solar charging panel and low voltage bulb along with an auto light-sensitive on/off switch. Don't let the sun go down on your day,let the moon come up at night, and bask in the beautiful twilight whether it's cloudy or not.
- Tobias Wong designed lighting concept.
- Choose either the Sun Jar, Moon Jar or the New Twilight Jar.
- Just as a jam jar stores jam, the Sun, Moon and Twilight Jars store sun.
- The Sun Jar glows Yellow, the Moon Jar glows blue and the Twilight Jar glows a dusky pink.
- Pop the jar on the windowsill in the light and it will automatically glow by dark.
- A low voltage bulb powered by the sun and the solar charging panel allows the jar to work.
- An auto light-sensitive on/off switch.
- Suitable for ages 5 years+.
- Requires sunshine and a solar cell battery (included).
- Please note: Winter months aren't the most conducive to a healthy charge - for improved results, leave your Jar switched off (switch up) whilst charging. This conserves battery life and will leave it to illuminate when you need it to. If the weather has been particularly bad, as a last resort you can also charge the batteries in a normal battery charger.
- 16 x 10 x 10cm.

a gorgeous glow
I bought a sun jar as I spend far too much money on candles and wanted a similar effect that would last. The sun jar did not disapoint. However, after having it for a few months, I've noticed that the charge does not last as long. I will definately be buying a new battery for it though, as it is so worth it.
If your jar isn't glowing properly...
Hi, My boyfriend bought me a sun jar for my birthday, and after working fine for one night, it stopped glowing. If you open the lid, you'll see a black disc with the solar panel in... If you gently tease this out of the surround, you'll see a rechargeable battery in a holder. Take this out and charge it in a battery charger for a good few hours (I did for 8) and then pop it back in the jar. I think sometimes the battery just needs a good old solid charge (something it can't always get with Britain's sunlight!) Mine works absolutely fine now, hopefully this will help anyone with a similar problem!
I purchased the "twilight jar " for my loved one as a birthday gift. We had stumbled upon iWoot and I recalled he had mentioned that the sun/moon jars seemed cool. I am in the USA and was looking for an overseas based website to order gifts from for him and some of my friends based there (he is in Ireland atm). I was excited to order this, along with a few other things off this site, and couldn't wait for him to recieve this. Come midnight on his birthday, he tore through his box like a little boy and was looking at everything and was so super excited when he saw THIS item especially. He described it all and opened it ASAP and set it up by his window sill and was urging the day to come faster to charge it! He was impressed with it right off and could not wait to see it in action. Later that evening, he asked me to turn on the webcam and I was looking at a black screen and then suddenly the face and form of my beloved bathed in a beautiful, mesmerizing, pink, dusky glow. It was simply enchanting! The glow was SO BEAUTIFUL! It was not overly bright nor was it overly dim. It was just right and it was very soothing. Even better? Seeing the huge and awesome smiles of my man as he turned the jar over and over in his hands and just looking at it like a little boy and hearing him say "sooooo cooollll, my love! Thank you" over and over! The product works very well. Even better than we thought. The glow lasted for a very long time and it was great quality and the price was just right too! Further, the service from iWoot was better than anything I've ever dealt with here in the USA, bar none! From ordering, to billing, to shipping, wrapping and fast service..everything was perfect! The smiles on my man's face was beyond worth it. I definitely recommend this product to everyone..and, in fact, have already forwarded this (and iWoot) to many friends! This is highly recommended! Too bad there are not more stars to add for this! ORDER IT! You won't regret it!
This is a great little thing for providing a little bit of ambient light to your room. It works a lot better than the description says it does in low light (It never once went dry under moderate use over the long and cruel cruel winter!), and is very good for providing just enough light to get around a darkened room without completely ruining your awesometastic night vision! Overall, rather satisfied with this product :D
Love them, but ......
Purchased all three jars a short while ago. Been tempted for ages and finally succumbed. The best for light is the Twilight jar, it glows for hours. The sun and moon ones are rather disappointing as even after the same amount of battery charge/sunlight (they have all been sitting on the same windowsill) we are lucky if they glow for a couple of hours. I still love the light they emit, just wish it could be for longer. Had been going to order another six for the garden but not so sure now. Would still recommend them though, maybe we were just unlucky.
The one thing I would say about this one is don't buy it for someone in winter, if they live in Scotland. You can recharge it with lightbulb light but it took an age to get it working properly. Once it did though, it was very atmospheric - we'd sort of given up on it and came back into the room to be surprised and delighted by the blue glow. It really is a cool thing :).
Sun, Moon, Twilight Jars
I am very pleased with the Sun/Moon/Twilight Jars. The frosted glass gives a nice finish and creates the soft glow when they are illuminated. Sat on the window sill they recharge during the day without any problems. I think the Moon one is my favourite with its deep blue glow :)
I brought a Moon Jar as a Christmas present for my boyfriend, it was the perfect gift. It didnt take too long to charge on Christmas day and soon the whole family was admiring the beautiful blue glow. Sadly i dont think the weather has been good enough for it to charge properly, so we havent been able to enjoy it as much as we would have liked. (Glad i checked back here to see we can charge it with an electric battery charger) Can't wait for the days of sunshine to come along...and brighten up our evening! I look forward to buying a Twilight Jar next.
I bought a moon jar for my husband for Xmas as he is always joking that I ask for the moon on a stick. Its quiet and unobtrusive during the day on the windowsill and at night it is absolutely gorgeous, glowing the most delicious blue. I would recommend these to anybody - how can you not love something this pretty?!
A great quirky gift
Have bought four sun jars so far this year for different friends - even took one to Australia for a relative. They have been very well received - a different kind of gift. Excellent service from IWOOT and next day delivery every time! Would highly recommend. Am hoping to receive one myself for Christmas, if I'm lucky!
Shine on You Crazy...Sun Jar
In a selfish moment (we all have them, stop judging me ;) ) I bought a Sun Jar. It arrived speedily - as always - & I was delighted with how well it worked. It makes for a charming night light & it's very atmospheric when you're unwinding. It's water-proof so it won't break if you leave it outside. I've recommended it to friends. (Be selfish, get one!)
