This thing looks great! Solar-powered lamps are often pretty corny-looking, and the ones for outdoors are all so plasticky. The Sun Jar is basically just a couple low-power LEDs in a jar, attached to a solar charger, but it looks great. I always wanted to capture the sun in a jar. Have a couple of these around for emergencies or just for mood lighting.
At £20 or ~$33, they fall under the “pricey but not outrageous objet” category. I’d buy one if I didn’t have to pay for international shipping, but you Brits out there should definitely pick one up. Lots more info here, and you can order one too.
