The Powersol uses solar panels attached to the top of a patio umbrella to collect energy into a table-top battery hub. Guests can charge their smartphones and other mobile devices off the hub while they relax by the pool or enjoy some food and drinks at the table.
“MGM is a leader in innovation for the hospitality world, and Powersol definitely fits in with our goal to innovate and provide convenient tech amenities to our guests,” Joyen Vakil, Sr. Vice President of Design & Development at MGM Resorts International said in a statement.
“Working with MGM on this rollout is exciting for ZON. As an up and comer in the solar, mobile charging movement, it is incredibly validating to have Powersol tapped as the solution for legendary MGM properties to keep their guests’ devices charged up,” Cameron Welborn-Wilson, ZON’s Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, said in a release.
ZON once again confirmed that they are working on a consumer-friendly version and that Canadian businesses interested in the Powersol can order and have one shipped here.
