I recently got to test out the HUB Chair on a recent camping trip with Marcel from Australian Outdoor Adventures. We recently went up to Neurum Creek Bush Retreat for a camp oven cooking gig and I didn’t want to drag lots of gear with me so the Hub chair was perfect! First of all, it gave me a seat then kept my devices charged and even kept my drinks cool – how awesome is that!
Hub chair – the ultimate camping chair that everyone needs
Enter the HUB: a genius piece of multi-functional gear that will help you cross at least seven things off your packing list and, most importantly, has enough built-in battery power and off-grid rechargeability to get you out the door and on the road faster than any other piece of kit you own.
NOW, the dream of relaxing by the campfire before sunset on Friday afternoon… is absolutely possible!
The HUB chair can charge the multitude of electronic gadgets we can’t live without. A huge built-in power bank does the job while you put your feet up.
Built into the HUB table top is a massive 10,000Mah power bank that could run the Bluetooth speakers alone for up to 7hrs non-stop, or fully charge your iPhone 5 times over.
The polymer battery pack is lightweight, water and dust resistant and puts out a ‘fast charge’ through two x 2.5amp USB ports that will happily charge a couple of your electronic gadgets simultaneously!
Here’s a list of gadgets you might want to charge up:
camera – fitness band – GoPro – drone – mobile phone – GPS – video sunglasses – eBook tablet – iPad – camping lantern
HUB table top:
- The table top features Bluetooth speakers to enable you to play your favourite tunes at the beach, kids sports game, weekend market stall or to set the mood around the campfire.
- The table has plenty of uses but is perfect for eating dinner at or sharing a bowl of nuts with your drinking buddy.
- Built into the HUB table top is a massive 10,000Mah power bank that powers the speakers, and can even simultaneously charge two devices.
Connect your music source to the Weatherproof Bluetooth speakers inside the table piece and turn up the volume.
Fully waterproof in the event of an unexpected shower, the superior quality speakers and subwoofer produce sounds with a smooth baseline quality, clear mids and plenty of volumes to fill your outdoor spaces.
Let your music play for hours using the built-in power bank and take or make phone calls directly from the tabletop (if you really want to that is!).
HUB Chair – Two HUBs are better than one!
Create a surround sound party atmosphere when you’re in the middle of nowhere with this leading edge technology that connects the speakers from two HUB chairs to a single music source.
That means you can play your party tunes with double the volume and outdoor reach; surely the best reason to own two HUBs!
Make eating, reading and sketching a simple task with the stable attached table that swivels and pivots to whatever position, height or angle you want.
What really sucks about eating outdoors is when you’ve just managed to carefully balance the plate of food on your lap and it decides to take a nosedive into the sand! And don’t you just KNOW how impossible it is to properly wash sand from a juicy steak?
For this feature alone, it’s worth having a HUB Chair with your own stable personal table that swings to the front for eating and to the side for sharing a bowl of nuts with your drinking buddy.
Position the sticky silicon grip-mat on the table surface and pivot it at an angle to create a non-slip easel for sketching or hands-free e-reading.
Let There Be Light!
Light up your life with the detachable LED flashlight that magnetises to the table corner and bends to illuminate the task at hand.
They say we “eat with our eyes” and nothing makes camp food more enjoyable than being able to see what’s on the plate in front of us… but when the sun’s gone down and there’s the only starlight to see by, it ain’t so easy!
The HUB’s 80 lumens LED torch will likely make your food taste better by giving you hands-free tabletop illumination with its magnetic attachment and unique bendable shaft for directing the light where you most need it. The flashlight easily detaches for BBQ checking duty or for finding your tent in the dark!
Keep your drinks and snacks chilled in the insulated soft cooler bag that clips to the armrest for quick access.
Don’t get up, stay right there in your seat, just reach lazily to your left, flip up the quick-access lid and pull out another icy cold one. RELAX!
It is so EASY to stay refreshed in the HUB! Fit up to 12 cold cans or other snacks and beverages in the detachable soft-sided cooler for possible all-day personal supply.
The comfy adjustable shoulder strap makes for an easy BYO to your neighbour’s beach party or convenient refill from the mother icebox.
Convert to a handy gear trolley when you’ve got other stuff to carry to your picnic spot. The detachable off-road wheels let you cart up to 30kgs on the seat. How much other stuff have you got to cart to your favourite picnic spot?
Turn your HUB into a very handy packhorse: attach the wide-tread off-road wheels, load up the seat with up to 30kgs of gear, tip and pull/push your HUB cart with the sturdy webbing handles off into the wild! When you get there, simply detach the wheels, sit down, put your feet up and ENJOY!
HUB Chair – Soak up the sun’s energy
Soak up the sun’s free energy and efficiently charge up the HUB’s power bank with the folding 18W solar panel wallet OR if the sun is hiding, plug into your car’s 12V socket and charge up in a flash.
Even if your vehicle’s 12V socket is miles away, you can always whip out your trusty fast-charging 18W Solar Panel wallet (conveniently stowed in the armrest pannier where you won’t forget it) and charge your HUB power bank using the sun’s free rays! This lightweight, waterproof, highly efficient mini panel is dead easy to use; just position it in the full sun and plug it into the micro USB port (with the cord supplied) on the side of the table.
Make yourself truly self-sufficient when you next head off the beaten track.
Standard with every chair comes an extra long 3m micro/USB cord and Car Charger that plugs into your car’s 12V cigarette socket. Monitor how charged you are with the LED indicator lights and juice up if you need to while you’re driving or when you get there.
The last thing you need in the great outdoors is a cheap, flimsy excuse for a camping chair with fabric you can shoot peas through and a frame that can’t cope with a bit of rough treatment.
Confidence is Ensured..
Be confident in knowing that we consider a strong, well-balanced, sturdy and durable structure to be an essential foundation element of the HUB chair; one that will never be compromised.
We have used lightweight curved and moulded aluminium tubing with a tough, anodised, powder coat finish in an easy-to-fold-up oversized director’s chair style.
Hard plastic elbows on the leg corners stop your chair from sinking in the sand and tipping you out, whilst the heavy UV-protected polyester canvas seat and back are padded in just the right spots for maximum laid-back comfort.
