LED lights cost pennies. Tape or glue one to your own mason jar. This is a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE rip-off.

Todd,

Thank you for taking the time to write. We disagree with your assessment of a "HUGE, HUGE, HUGE rip-off." Your comment was very strongly worded and a bit unfair. If you get something from our store that you don't just love you can always have a full refund. This is The Old Farmer's Almanac, we're easy, honest, and straightforward to deal with.

Gluing LED lights to mason jar lids is a worthwhile project. The lights will cost more than pennies though, but under a buck. The project would result in much talked about and admired decorations. Perhaps for a party or barbeque. You would be able to use them multiple times before the batteries were exhausted.

If someone doesn’t feel like making their own or doesn’t have the time, with our Moon Shiners you get a mason jar lid readymade with an integrated solar panel, rechargeable battery, LED lights, and all the necessary wiring to make it work. You can use them for party decorations or displaying items in your home.

We’ve sold just under 4,000 Moon Shiners and only had 2 complaints (includes yours) and less than 5 defective units that we had to replace. Lastly, we are selling them for less than the standard retail markup.

could you find solar lids?

Submitted by

These lights do not perfectly fit a standard small mouth jar lid. Mine seemed slightly small and a bit thick so the lid does not completely seal the jar. The light MUST get direct sunlight to recharge. I originally put mine on our covered back porch where it received a little morning sun and indirect light the rest of the day. If I don't set it directly in the sun for several hours, it just faintly flickers at night. Don't expect as much light as a garden solar light, it is just a glow that lights up the inside of the jar, like a low level night light. I bought several when they were on sale. They might make a cute novelty gift. They do not seal well enough to weather being fully outside, and several hours of direct sunlight is needed to recharge the light.

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.

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! :)

Ellen,
They should work great indoors. If not just let us know and we'll give you a 100% full refund (shipping included both ways).

Is there a discount if we buy in bulk - say ordering 20 of them?

Submitted by

Not at this price.

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.

Will these be available again? If so, when?

Submitted by

In stock now, but running low.

I love the idea but hate the bluish light from LAD's. Do any of the covers make a golden light?

Submitted by

The color is dependent on the color of jar. Blue jar= blue light. Clear jar= no color.

Submitted by

These are awesome lights... I bought mine about 8 months ago and have been tickled pink ever since.  I give this light 5 stars! highly recommend.

My spacious "Ranchette" property could surely could use "lights" to direct and lead the way at night time..very clever...

Submitted by

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
