Classic umbrellas (Parasols) are primarily designed to shield an individual from the sun. Almost all venues and outdoor places accommodate such umbrellas. SmartBrella is a not an ordinary umbrella. SmartBrella provides simultaneously protection from the sun and the facility to charge your mobile devices. It can be used both as a point of shade and point of charge. SmartBrella is a patent pending product.
SmartBrella is a technological advancement of the classic parasol-umbrella into a green-power outdoor charging station. SmartBrella’s competitive advantage over other innovative charging products or solutions is the one-stop-source of energy production and consumption. Users and customers can get all they need in just “one point” without leaving their mobile devices anywhere else. SmartBrella is more than a common umbrella, is an efficient Promotional Tool!
How It Works
SmartBrella has all those fundamental characteristics of a conventional umbrella-parasol. Its core competency is that it accommodates a natural energy generation and charging station.
Photovoltaic modules (PV) are embedded in the top of the canopy. They are highly-efficient, light weighted, flexible and waterproof. The PV captures and converts the solar energy into direct current (DC) electricity. The direct conversion of solar to electricity occurs without any moving parts or environmental emissions during operation. This eco-friendly electricity is transferred directly to the solar charger controller which is placed in the middle of the pole. The power can be accessed by Smart-USB ports which reside on the charger providing the proper power supply for recharging mobile devices such as Smartphones, cell-phones, tablets, pads, cameras, etc.
Our technology ensures easy installation, operation and use that is similar to a conventional umbrella. Our product is suitable for installation in harsh environments due to its waterproof, tamperproof, salt and humidity resistance.
The R&D of all mechanical, electrical and electronic designs has been implemented by Greek scientists in order to optimal, safe and reliable charge portable devices.
Studies and measurements of our engineers along with laboratory and real tests have created the high-tech smart product that safely can give the necessary electrical energy in portable electronic devices.
The high efficiency solar cells used, have the capability to exploit even greater amount of solar irradiation, enabling fully charged in very short time, almost equivalent to that required by the device when connected to a normal wall socket.
Consisting of a unique and advanced energy management system, the Intelligent Charger (Smart Charger) has the ability to efficient charge any kind of electronic portable device potential throughout the day.
The circuit is designed so that it may regulate the charging stages of your device based on the produced solar energy.
The Smart Charger takes care for you by giving you free and “clean” energy from the sun.
SmartBrella is 100% environmentally friendly, safe for users, and has the necessary certifications and compliances under the European directives.
