The only thing that restricts us from all day of music, movies and other stuff on our smartphones, tablets and other gadgets while we are outdoors is the battery life of our devices.
However, I think we have a cool solution which comes in the form of a Market Umbrella. Besides providing shade from the sun, the Umbrella with four 10″ x 4 1/4″ solar panels woven into its 9′ diameter canopy converts sunlight into electricity which is retrieved via two USB ports in its pole.
There is also a rechargeable 3.7-volt/1000mA backup battery which ensures the supply of power during overcast conditions. The umbrella’s canopy can withstand strong wind blows and also blocks 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.
This eco friendly Market Umbrella with solar panels is available at Hammacher for $499.95.
