SOLo Lounge Table
The SOLo Lounge Table by iF collects solar energy to power personal digital devices. During the evening, internal LED lights provide an intimate glow. It can harness approximately 73 kilowatt hours of solar energy every year in a typical outdoor setting (using southern California as an example). This amount of power provides the equivalent of over 100 mobile phone or iPod charges per day, 40 iPhone charges per day, or 3 laptop computer charges per day (or 12 hours of laptop operating power per day based on a 4-hour average battery life) – all without draining traditional, overextended sources of energy.
