The ibench can operate without the need for an additional power supply.

Two USB charging sockets are available as well as two QI charging surfaces for wireless charging. It also offers charging options for e-bikes and e-scooters while the rider takes a break.

Three monocrystalline solar modules power the ibench. The modules, each with an output of 40 watts, produce the power for lighting, mobile phone charging function and the LTE router. This allows the ibench to operate almost without interruption and without the need for an additional power supply from the grid.

Maintenance-free and long-life AGM batteries are installed in the seat as energy storage, which are charged by means of the intelligent electronics. A break-resistant Perspex window protects the technology against moisture and external mechanical effects. (mfo)
