How long does it take to fully charge a phone device?
Charging time depends on charging type and smartphone model. When using wireless charger, it usually takes up to 90 minutes to fully charge a device, as the technology is still in development phase. Charging speed when using USB ports is usually between 1 and 1,8% of battery per 1 minute. Charging speed also depends on whether the smartphone is in use while charging, or in the stand-by mode.

How come the bench does not have a back rest?
Our bench was designed to fit seamlessly into any environment, and allow seating from all sides. A back rest would disrupt this concept and potentially create problems with charging since shadowing negativelly affects the energy yield of PV modules.

How many days can Steora work without sunlight?
This depends on several factors such as the number of bench users, amount of sun and clouds in the course of a day, etc. Usually, Steora can function normally up to 5 days without direct sun exposure, before the primary functions start to power off to save the battery. USB charging ports are the last to shut down.

How long does it take for a bench to be fully charged?
In summer days, Steora can charge its battery system within 1 day, while in winter this can take up to 10 days. That is why Steora is mostly in standby mode during winter (this refers only to Steora Standard, as all other models are AC grid connected and maintain full functionality throughout the year).

What surface should the bench be installed on?
Steora has to be installed on a solid surface – concrete, asphalt or stone. The surface needs to be at least 10cm deep.
