MFJK - 'Magical Fireflies® in a Jar Kit'


Model MFJK - 'Fireflies in a Jar' Kit

The Model MFJK 'Magical Fireflies® in a Jar Kit' is designed to create an artificial firefly microenvironment, in a canning, canister, mayonnaise jar, or other similar container. The FMJ unit is very delicate and care should be taken not to excessively bend or twist the microwires.

Your battery powered 'Magical Fireflies® in a Jar Kit' uses 2 AA batteries (included).

After many hours of operation (approxiamtely 4-6 weeks), the 'Fireflies' may begin to get dim and it's time to replace the two standard AA batteries.

NOTE: Never leave weak or dead batteries in the battery holder, as they will leak acid and ruin the device. This type of damage is not covered under warranty, so always remove batteries when storing the unit for extended periods.

To Replace the batteries:

1) First, slide switch on the ON-OFF switch to the OFF position. Next, remove the small screw that locks the back slide-off door to the battery compartment. Carefully slide the door off the battery holder. This may initially take some pressure.

2) Remove and old batteries, and insert two new AA batteries into the battery holder being sure to place the batteries in with the correct polarity (positive to + and negative to -)

3) Slide the door back onto the battery holder and reinstall the screw.

4) To turn the lights on, slide the ON-OFF switch to the ON position and all the 'fireflies' should light for approximately 2-3 seconds then flicker off. This indicates the 'Magical Fireflies® in a Jar Kit is working correctly and their random flash, flicker, and fade cycles have begun.

Placing Your Magical Fireflies® into a Jar:

Included with your kit is a small piece of Velcro® that can be used to attach the battery holder to the lid of your firefly jar. NOTE: The Velcro® should be used on the back sliding door of the battery case, not on the front side where the switch is located.

Each individual 'firefly' is attached to the microprocessor located within the battery compartment by very delicate microwires. These wires become almost invisible inside a jar at night. However, care must be taken during handling, moving, and placing, as they are very delicate, especially where they attach to the individual 'firefly' light. If desired, touch-up paint can be used on the wires to replace any black that has flaked off, or to change their color.
