Consol Solar Jar Review

Consol Solar Jar is a cool product out of South Africa. The Consol Solar Jar was originally designed for people in areas without electricity. The Consola Solar Jar stores energy during the day and releases light during the night. The Console Solar Jar is made up of a traditional mason jar with lid and solar-powered LEDs, which are charged by solar cells in its lid. It is simple to use as you simple flip the unique magnetic switch and the light turns on.

Handmade to a high standard
Preserve jar 100% recyclable
Made with 70% local materials
Creates steady jobs
Winner of five design awards

The Consol Solar Jar is perfect for camping, outdoors, at the table and more. The light reflects the jar and creates a unique lighting experience. You can buy a few and create a unique lighting experience at a party event.

Consol Solar Jar is great idea for a gift and has many uses. I use this at the dining room table, in the backyard while working on the garden as it gets dark, and while camping. The solar cells charge up quick and the light output is pretty good for it’s size.

Stilo Fine-Tip Active Stylus Pen Review

I have tried a few active stylus pens for capacitive screen devices and have been disappointed. I thought I would give a new one on the market a shot. The Stilo Pen is an active fine-tip stylus that is battery powered and paired with a precision screen protector. I tested this with a Ipad Mini and the results were good.

I like that Stilo Pen uses a single AAA battery rather than a coin battery that will cost more to replace. You can also use a rechargeable AAA battery and save buying batteries all the time. The stylus has a 1.9mm fine tip rather than a nub like other stylus for capacitive touchscreens. This allows you to write notes naturally and even draw.

Stilo Pen includes an optional screen protector that pairs with the active stylus. The screen protector is only $20 additional and I highly recommend it as it was an improvement in the experience of the stylus.

The Stilo Pen is the best stylus I have tested on a capacitive screen device. Most of the active stylus pens on the market are bulky and not very accurate. The Stilo Pen is truly the first active stylus that I really like and can jot down notes and draw with. The Stilo Pen is a bit pricy at $69.99 but well worth the upgrade for serious professionals that need a precision pen for their iPad, iPhone or touchscreen device.
