Ever been to a picnic that had umbrellas that provided shade so you could see the fact that your phone’s battery was running out way better than in the sun? It’s kind of a long shot, but we have. And it was excruciating. So we were extremely glad to find this particular shade-maker, that not only keeps you nice and cool but also charges your devices by making smart use of a solar panel. Frankly, we’re surprised this idea wasn’t put into practice sooner. Not only that, but its canopy withstands wind gusts and blocks 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays for a UPF rating of 50+, ideal for all you white-skinned nerds who need a constant supply of power for your gadgets.
