Charge Up with the Power of the Sun at Ekstrom!

Solar Charging UmbrellaThere’s a new way to charge up your mobile device at Ekstrom Library!

Take a stroll outside, and plug into the sun with the PowerSol solar umbrella at a table outside the Ekstrom Starbucks.

The station’s eight solar panels generate 54 watts of electricity & can charge up to three devices at once via USB ports.

It uses a lithium ion battery to store power throughout the day (needing 5.5 hours of sun to fully charge) and can charge your device even after dark!
