Solar collector / Solar collector

Solar collector

Design Notes:
Water is the source of life and the necessity of people's survival; my original intention is to provide
a collection container for some dry and well lit areas (such as Africa). And the product is similar to
umbrella shape, easy to carry, in the hot desert, it can also effectively isolate ultraviolet rays for you.
Working Principle:
Collect electric energy through the folding solar panel at the upper end, cool andheat according
to the situation to generate water vapor, and then flow into the water receiver at the lower end.
