On-the-go students with a long day of classes often need last minute charging for their electronic devices. In lieu of searching for a wall outlet in a building, outdoor solar charging stations enable students to sit comfortably outside and chat with friends while rapidly recharging any of their devices.
A Solar, “Social Recharge” on university campuses
Students are a perfect audience for solar charging stations given their social life, heavy reliance on cellphones and movement around the campus between classes. It is common for students to meet-up at a station, enjoy a beverage and conversation while charging their devices.
The Momentum solar charging workstation includes a high performance solar array of more than 1 Kilowatt, brilliant nighttime LED lighting (for charging at night), powerful 120V and USB outlets for charging, a robust design with multiple bench options, the capacity for 75-150 (iPhone 6 or 7 equivalent) mobile charges/day and (4) 120V and (8) USB electrical outlets.
New Installations around the country
Some of the newest Sunbolt installations include Cal State (Fullerton), Stockton University, Franklin & Marshall College, NJIT, East Carolina University and the City of El Paso.
Built tough for heavy use, all weather conditions and a minimum lifetime of 30 + years
Sunbolt’s architectural designs are built as fully engineered commercial grade structures, hardened for public use and low maintenance with a minimum service life of 30 years.
Each is a magnet for anyone with electronic devices who needs a recharge, with new technology that provides a broader range of designs, features, options and price points.

Years ago, in the destructive aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Ian Jones, one of the founders of Sunbolt, watched as over 8 million homes lost power in 17 states. As thousands of people drained their car batteries just to charge their phones, Ian recognized the need for an off-grid solution that would provide electricity during major power outages.
Over the years, the company’s product line has evolved from charging docks to outdoor workstations and the company itself was transformed from The ConnecTable to Sunbolt. Today, Sunbolt has installed workstations throughout the United States and Mexico and continues to be a leader in the renewable energy community.
