Solar Patio Umbrella with Nightlight

It's the patio umbrella that protects you from the sun all day-- soaking up the sunlight so you don't have to-then converting that sunlight into (free) electricity you can use all evening.

The patio umbrella, retailed by Hammacher-Schlemmer and others, is a fine quality product on its own-with a rustproof aluminum pole and frame and a 9' canopy.

The LED's will recharge for 200,000 hours under warranty, recharging daily for up to eight hours of use.

It's one of several products that integrate solar PV into fabric. Some others are solar clothing and solar handbags and backpacks.
