Solar energy technology has the capability to completely transform the way we think about electricity on a global basis, which is what the Hanergy 'Humbrella' is focused on helping to enable.
Looking like a traditional outdoor umbrella, the system is outfitted with a thin solar film that will capture energy from the sun on sunny and cloudy days to ensure it's always functional. The integrated 40,000mAh battery within the unit will help to offer sufficient illumination for up to 10 hours at night, which can also be used for charging smartphones or other mobile devices.
The first batch of Hanergy 'Humbrella' systems will be delivered to remote regions in Africa as part of the brand's Lighting Africa initiative to offer those in rural communities access to grid-free power.
