I find the light in these to be weak, i.e. barely visible in a clear jar, and it is that cool LED type light so it would probably be better in a blue jar. They fit standard size mason jars (NOT widemouth) but some do not fit well. Acceptable purchase at the sale price but I have other solar lights I prefer.

Love these, and so do our grandkids who take the jars to bed as a beautiful under-the-covers nightlight. I put a couple on the stairway each night as we go to bed, as well.
By "standard lids" do you mean small mouth mason jars? I've been looking for a "large mouth" solar lid. Can't find them.
I notice that only one "reviewer" (B. Johnston)has stated that the lids don't fit standard canning jars perfectly ... but I don't see anyone else mentioning this. Do they fit standard canning jars, or not?
Hello interested in your moonshiner lids for craft projects
I purchased one called a Magic Fairy Jar from a gal. She filled it with iridescent tissue paper that reflects the light. She decorated the outside of the jar with gems and a handle so that you could hang it from a J-hook in the garden. I absolutely love it. It lights up perfectly as long as it gets sunlight during the day. I wish that I could submit a picture so you could see how beautiful it is.
I agree with you-Cynthia stewart
Yep I know what you mean we live in the mountains of Western NC.
They will work inside after charging solar panel...tho description said it comes with a AAA rechargable battery. My solar stuff with battery works on just battery alone, not sure about this one, you could call. Also...I have *** Full Spectrum *** light bulbs that DO light the charging light on my solar stuff. These are not " sun bulbs "...they Must be full spectrum. A Gro-bulb Might work. I'd call about battery...does it work alone ???
as long as you RECHARGE the solar part IN the sun, they work great...but remember solar means IN the sun! :)
Where I come from "Moon Shiners" are people, AKA Boot-Legers. lol.
Has anyone used these indoors? Will household lighting recharge the batteries? I'm redoing my bathroom in mason jars and dandelions. I want to mount a canning rack filled with eight jars and nightlights, but need to find one that will work inside.
Is there a discount if we buy in bulk - say ordering 20 of them?
These are awesome...I put two on blue jars and one on a green jar, they look so cool....we're making three more to hang on our clothes line poles.
These are great! We filled some with marbles and glass beads and use them in the house for accent lighting and nightlights. Recently we bought 15 with a coupon for outside to line a path that goes to our screened in gazebo. Got lots of compliments and a month later of lots of rain and heat they are no worse for the wear.
The color is dependent on the color of jar. Blue jar= blue light. Clear jar= no color.
Will these be available again? If so, when?
Magical! What a beautiful addition to a holiday table. I love these...I put blue and small gold tree ornaments inside and they are gorgeous. Wish I could add a photo here. Don't forget to reverse the battery inside when they arrive. I thought they weren't working until I read the Directions!!! LOL
I LOVE THESE, THEY ARE WONDERFULL. TRULY LOVE THEM AS A NIGHT LIGHT AROUND THE HOUSE. I CAN'T WAIT TO PUT THEM OUT IN THE GARDEN THIS SPRING. WIL ORDER MORE
