We have covered many exciting solar chargers for iPhone and iPad here in the past. Many of them are portable and easy to take with you everywhere you go. This Solar Umbrella is designed for those of you interested in spending a lot of time outside your home without access to a power outlet. It has 4 solar panels that turn sunlight into power for your smartphone or tablet.
This umbrella has a rechargeable 1000mAh battery that you can use in overcast conditions. The umbrella keeps 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays away from you. It has a UPF rating of 50+. The pole and spreaders are weather resistant. You get two USB ports in the pole to connect your gadgets.
This umbrella looks like a decent pickup but it does cost a whole lot. It is available for just under $500 (not counting the cost of the base). Might work well in sunny places.
