Black Solar Lantern #7693
$65 with FREE SHIPPING

The Statue of Liberty may hold the torch of freedom, but your Lawn Jock can hold the torch... of your imagination! Want an easy to use "set it and forget it" light for your Jock? Then this completely automatic user-friendly solar lantern should fit the bill. No muss, no fuss, no complicated instructions, no bulb changing, no switch fiddling, no programming, no wiring... just pull the lantern out of the box, pull the battery tab out, and hang it on your Lawn Jock. The lantern will automatically light up at night, then it turns itself off and charges during the day.

This is our most popular lawn jockey lantern. With it's unique yellow flickering flame LED configuration, it looks just like an old victorian-era gaslight or oil lantern when lit up at night! These units are made of durable plastic construction and are available in a flat black(#7693) color.

Our solar lantern #7693 is a classic-style Lawn Jockey lantern with curved handles framing a clear plastic globe. Hidden inside are (30) "lifetime" 100000-hour randomly blinking LED lights that never need changing and are permanently installed. The light from the LEDs are amplified by a mirror hidden behind a cylindrical diffuser. The net effect is that the light is a warm flickering "glow" similar to that of a candle. LEDs are powered from batteries that store energy from 2 solar cells on top and side. The solar cell absorbs energy from the sun during the day and stores it in 2 standard 1.2v AA rechargeable batteries in a battery compartment under the lantern's base. There is a photo sensor that automatically turns the LEDs off when the sun is out. Nothing could be simpler: The lantern has 1 mode that is activated when the batteries are installed. There is no on/off switch.



YELLOW FLICKER MODE: Random LEDs flicker on and off for "fire" effect.

Lantern is weatherproof, and comes with a cloudy plastic lampshade "globe" diffuser for 360-degree illumination. A discreet solar panel is fitted into the top of the fixture. A second solar panel is located on the side of the unit, and can be hidden by turning around the unit. This lantern also has a built-in light sensor to automatically turn itself off during the day so the batteries can recharge. Like our Lawn Jocks, this solar lantern is basically maintenance-free, ages gracefully, and blends in to wherever you set it.

HOW BRIGHT IS IT? Above on the left is a non-flash photo of a Lawn Jock holding the solar lantern at night in a typical scene with ambient light nearby. On the right is what the lantern looks like in complete darkness.

Note that the lantern is not bright like a spotlight or light bulb to burn your eyeballs looking at it. The flickering light emitted is similar to other solar lights in that it has more of a "glow" than a bright light, with just enough light to splash on the Jock and a few feet around. The intermittant yellow "flame" grabs attention and creates a nice nighttime effect.

DOES THE LANTERN FIT OTHER JOCKEYS? Included with the lantern is a special triangle-shaped "ring handle" that hangs from an existing ring. The lantern size best matches the standard 4 foot tall horse racing lawn jockeys- aluminum like ours, concrete and iron. It is out of scale but works OK on the old 2 foot iron "jocko style" lawn jockeys with pedestals, but on short iron "jockos" without pedestals and the newer concrete "jockos" the lantern almost touches the ground. This can be remedied by elevating the statue by setting it on a concrete paver or block.
