Electree is a modern sculpture imitating a bonsai, the leaves of which are small photovoltaic panels.

 

It allows to recharge your mobile devices without using any other energy than light.

Usage is strictly limited to indoors.

 

Electree is delivered in modules which you assemble to create your own tree. This method makes it possible to produce an infinity of different shapes. You can model it according to your wishes and at the same time optimize the orientation of the photovoltaic cells and thus increase its effectiveness.

The structure is equipped with 27 cells, for a bulk height of roughly 40cm.

 

Energy produced by the panels during daylight is stored in a base hidden battery. Once charged, this accumulator feeds a USB port.
