Bucket with Solar / Bucket

Bucket with Solar
Bucket with Solar

This is an innovative bucket design with solar photoelectric system. In addition to buckets basic functions, the applied solar photoelectric system could provide electricity for lighting. The outlet of the bucket is with a 25-degree bevel. When the bucket is upside down, the solar panel, which is installed on the buckets bottom, will become 25 degrees inclined plane towards the sun. The installation makes solar panels generate power more effectively. The saved electricity could support the inside led lamp and offer sufficient lighting during the dark environment.
