    Abstract

    Solar cells integrated into products are attracting more and more attention especially due to the dramatically declining cost of solar cells. Furthermore, we are getting more dependent on portable units like mobile phones, tablets and PCs which has to be charged to be of any use. Especially on festivals where people camps for several days it can be hard to have your portable units charged. In this this work we report a solar powered hub, as an add-on to a table in the urban environment for charging mobile phones and tablets and other handheld devices through USBs, charging laptops through AC connections, providing opportunity to stream music via Bluetooth and play it from a handheld device to the table and lastly to provide LED lighting on the table during the dark hours. 3 prototypes of the system was built and tested at the Roskilde Festival 2017. Electrical logger units were built into the 3 Sun Hubs to monitor the overall energy system and the consumption of each functionality in the table.
