In a major move for the global mobile energy industry, Hanergy has launched its new product ‘Humbrella’, a thin-film solar powered umbrella providing clean, free and consistent electricity to people in energy-scarce areas of the world.

The company has announced, at the launch of its ‘Lighting Africa’ CSR project, that it would donate the first batch of a million RMB (USD 160,000) solar-powered umbrellas, or ‘Humbrellas’, to regions of Africa where electricity shortages routinely prevent children from having enough time for study.

With Humbrella, children in these regions will be able to enjoy more high-quality reading time.

Commenting on the product launch, Hanergy, CEO, Li Hejun said, “Hanergy has been striving to leverage our world-leading thin-film technology to provide accessible and clean energy to the world.”

“Humbrella is the latest addition to our growing roster of mobile energy solutions. With our unique technological strength and R&D commitment, we are confident that our products can transform many industries to make them much more green and efficient,” Li said.

The Humbrella integrates functions including off-grid power supply, electricity storage, night lighting, and terminal charging.

It can collect sunshine and convert it into electricity and save up to 40000mAh of power, enough for 10 hours of quality night reading time.

In addition to lighting, the Humbrella can charge several mobile phones or small appliances like electric mosquito repellent via 4 USB ports built into the handle of the umbrella.

The Humbrella has a diameter of 2.7 meters and weighs only 8.8 kilograms due to Hanergy’s amazingly light and flexible thin film solar panels.
