'Sedi Connect' Solar Seating

Not just a phone charging station, but a shelter from the sun and rain, a seat for resting and relaxing, a place to read and work (even at night), a hub for community gatherings, an information point, a highly visible advertising site and an attention-grabbing meet-up spot for friends waiting outside of theaters, airports, restaurants, zoos, museums, stadiums, galleries, city parks, or campus halls - enlivening the landscape with convenient, zero-cost energy contained in a novel form.

With a massive 1.2kW of solar generating power, 220Ah battery capacity and exceptionally bright 2 x 50W strip lighting, 'Sedi Connect' offers the ultimate in highly visible solar seating for high traffic locations where reliable, extended performance is essential, especially for active nighttime locations.


With its exceptionally striking design and large size, Sedi 'Connect' never fails to make an impact when installed in expansive outdoor settings, whether it's a closed off shopping street, a municipal park or garden, an outdoor trade show or the campus of a college or university.

With a huge array of options like extra lights, environment sensors, advertising or information display panels, extra phone charging outlets, WiFi, CCTV cameras etc, Sedi 'Connect' becomes a guaranteed focal point in any location with large social gatherings.

With it's huge storage area under the seat, large solar cells and high capacity batteries, a 12V/120V inverter can easily be added to Sedi 'Connect' to provide 120V power for laptops. Alternatively, simple 12V DC outlets could be added.

Because of its large size, Sedi 'Connect' is supplied in two sections which need to be joined on site with supplied bolts.
