2. Please ensure you have placed your lantern or jar in a sunny spot for at least 6 - 8 hours 

3. Please test your lantern or jar when it is DARK. The light will only be activated in the dark. 

My Lantern or Jar has stopped working? 

1. Has it just stopped for one night? Has it been a particularly cloudy or wet day? If so then please test again after a sunny day when the panel has been charged for 6 - 8 hours. 

2. If you have had your lantern or jar for approximately one year then you may need to change the battery. Please note the lanterns and jars require 1 x 1.2V 600mAH Ni-MH battery
