How do I set up SunWise Solar Firefly Lights?

When your lights arrive, it is easy to get them working and lighting up the yard. 

First, take them out of the plastic they come shipped in.  This includes the film covering the solar panel, to protect it while in storage and transit.

Next take the plastic tab out from the battery that is stoping the circuit, it will be either green or white.

You then want to unwind the LED string and shape it how you want it to fit in the jar. 

Once the string is ready, flick the switch On and screw the lids onto any 70mm jar.

Lastly, place the jars somewhere they get lots of sunlight and will fill your yard up with joy at night!

How do SunWise Solar Firefly Lights Work?

Our lights have a solar panel built into the top of the lid. It provides power to a rechargeable battery inside that makes the fairy lights glow in the jar.  To use them; Bend the light string into whatever shapes you want, turn the switch "On" and then screw the lid onto any standard mouth mason jar like you would a normal lid.  Leave the switch "On" and they will charge in the sun and go on when it gets dark. 

Do I need to turn them on and off every night?

No. All of our solar lights have an auto on/off feature. To make the lights easy as possible to use, we built a sensor into them which tells them to go on when it gets dark enough.  They will charge during the day and light up the yard at night so don't worry about having to flick them on when you want some light.
