About

WHERE IT ALL STARTED

While on a week long camping trip, I had brought my solar panels with me to be able to charge all my devices, IE flashlight, iPhone, GoPro, Bluetooth speakers etc....

I found the best place to put my solar panel was laying over a canopy chair, it angled the panels at the correct angel to produce the highest output. The light went on, and I looked for products out there that offered the same thing, when I found it wasn't being made anywhere, I took it upon myself to make and prove the need and function. 

With a few iterations we finally got it to where we wanted, following the creation of the sample we worked with various factories in China to source all the parts. Now we have a factory lined up and just need your help to fund the first run in mass production. 

HOW QUICKLY DOES IT CHARGE

Charge speed is going to be based on the amount of sunlight it is receiving but with a 15 W panel and two 2.4 Amp usb ports you should be able to charge any phone or tablet at the same speed as you would receive out of a wall outlet. 

WHAT CAN IT CHARGE? 

Any device that charges via USB. Items we have tested, GoPro, iPhone 6, iPad, cameras, external batteries.

CHAIR FEATURES:

  • Denier polyester 
  • 24" shade canopy  
  • Dual cup holders 
  • Charging pocket
  • Dual USB 2.4 amp plugs 

WHAT DOES IT COME WITH? 

WHAT IS LEFT TO BE DONE? 

We have two factories lined up, one for the chair and one for the solar panels and controller. The only other thing we need to do, is find a freight forwarding company to help us with the shipping. 

HOW WILL WE USE THE FUNDS?

PROJECTED TIMELINE

 STRECTH GOALS

We have considered adding an integrated bluetooth speaker assuming we get enough funds. But, we would prefer to concentrate on getting this projected funded and completed and fear stretch goals would delay the production. So, we will likely wait and add other features on version 2.

Risks and challenges

The seems to be very little risk as we have tested this chair for a few months now. The biggest issue we can see is if we have any delays on our parts. Depending on the success of this project we may need to tier the delivery dates to keep up with demand.
