This 9 feet Blissun patio umbrella with a solar-powered LED tube is a super sleek patio umbrella that will provide a shade of 57 square feet ideal for two pool loungers or a 42-54-inch table with 4-6 chairs.
It is also suited for commercial and residential use, including on your deck, lawn, patio, garden, etc., but we won’t recommend it for very busy or places with high traffic.

Solar-powered LED lights
One of the fantastic features of Blissun 9 ft Solar Powered LED Lighted Market Patio Umbrella with Push-Button Tilt & Crank is the 16 solar-powered LED light tubes, two on each rib that will give a subtle light. You can keep your get together, dinner, BBQs, party, or other events going after sunset.
It takes about 6-7 hours to fully charge the solar bulbs with the solar panel mounted on top of the umbrella, and the lights can run for about 8 hours once fully charged.
Unless you need more focused light, these LED tubes are a perfect choice since they don’t burn hot, last long, and don’t attract insects.
The canopy is made with 100% polyester, which Blissun notes as water-proof, UV protected, and fade resistant. However, the canopy fabric appears so thin, making it not fully water-proof.
Additionally, it fades after some time, i.e., unlike solution-dyed polyester with a better colorfastness, this canopy doesn’t hold on well its color.
The umbrella’s frame has a powder-coated aluminum pole and eight steel ribs. Therefore, it will not chip, corrode, rust, or peel easily.
While aluminum is light in weight and iron is strong enough to hold the canopy in place, the very pole feeble and fragile.
We recommend you don’t open it during high winds, storms, or when not using it. Otherwise, it may get broken.
Besides the LED light tubes and solar panel, the rest of the features are what you will find in most umbrellas, i.e., a cranking system for opening and closing it, a push-button tilt for tilting it into different angles, and an air vent.
However, it needs a strap to tie it up when closed, as this will help securely keep it in place.
Blissun 9 ft Solar Powered LED Lighted Market Patio Umbrella with Push-Button Tilt & Crank is affordable considering it is relatively large. It comes with solar-powered LED tubes a solar panel.
This Blissun patio umbrella is an excellent pick and a good bargain. It is well made and super-sleek looking, especially the solar lights.
