Umbrella to charge and boost signal of your Mobile

The Vodafone Booster Brolly by Kenneth Tong uses a clever combination of high gain antenna and low power signal repeater to catch radio waves from a Vodafone transmitter, before dispersing a very low intensity signal, creating a small “signal shower”, just above users’ heads. It connects their phones to the network, and even boosts the signal of other Vodafone customers around them.

The solar panels that line the Vodafone Booster Brolly’s surface are vital for powering the phone re-charger inside, but even after Dr Tong sourced flexible non-silicon versions from China, it proved difficult to actually attach them to the umbrella. The result is a hand-sewn canopy, stitched together with a dozen two volt panels powering a battery that can either charge a mobile, or operate a torch to help find your tent at night.

The Vodafone Booster Brolly has been developed in conjunction with Vodafone UK VIP program which gives Vodafone customers access to great experiences at some of the biggest festivals.
