CATCH / Sustainable product


In summer, there is enough solar energy. Nowadays, people have to form a sun umbrella
in the hot sun. The umbrella cloth can be made of light energy absorbing fabric material, and
the fiber material in the solar panel can be woven into the cloth.The heat energy absorbed by
the umbrella cloth is converted into electrical energy through the framework and stored in the
lower hand holding cylinder of the umbrella handle. The cylinder handle can be disassembled
and used as an emergency flashlight.
