Ian Edwards

Ian Edwards is celebrating over 40 years of creating a unique range of furniture for the music lover and bibliophile.

No ordinary enterprise, it is housed in a converted chapel in the elegant North Yorkshire town of Harrogate - famed for its flowers and music concerts - where a dedicated team of woodworkers produce a very wide range of quality furniture for the connoisseur.

Mobile Solar Chargers

The Aqua Trek + waterproof camping phone charger, is twice the size, capacity and weight of the standard Aqua Trek.  Once charged will retain its capacity for months, ready for when needed, as part of a survival kit or a reassuring back up charger for boats, festivals and camping. We have also left one in the water for 1 month, flashing an SOS, it still works. Our Aqua Trek Power Banks have been up Kilimanjaro, Everest base, across the Atlantic and supplied to the military.
