Aston solar jar is an environmentally friendly and sustainable solar cell powered lantern that can be used just about anywhere. Place it on the balcony and create luminous moments or take it with you to the beach. The possibilities are endless. The Aston Lantern should be charged in bright sun light for at least 2 hours, thereafter it will light up for up to 8 hours. The lantern lights up when the sun goes down and until the battery is discharged. The solar cell panel can be recharged up to 500 times. Do not place the lantern in direct sunlight when above 30 degrees or outdoors in freezing weather or rain. The real leather handle will change appearance and structure when being exposed to wind and weather and develop a beautiful patina.
