If you’re going to carry a backpack around, might as well make it as useful for as many things as possible. That’s why we like feature-packed bags like the SunLabz Solar Charger Backpack, which bundles an ergonomic rucksack with a high-efficiency solar charger and a hydration pack.
Now, the company isn’t exactly known for bags (they make batteries), so it’s hardly the most stylish pack you’re likely to find. They do know power, though, and this one houses a terrific solar charging system that you’re bound to end up finding indispensable in your active life.
The SunLabz Solar Charger Backpack uses a high-efficiency 7-watt solar panel that boasts a 22 percent transfer rate, ensuring it can maximize any sun exposure your bag gets. The panel, which comes with protective anti-scratch hardened coating, is sewn into a high-wear PVC fabric to ensure it’s resistant to any kind of weather you encounter, whether you’re charging your devices on the city streets or on the adventure trail. It comes with a 5-volt USB port for charging mobile gadgets, with built-in voltage stability controller to ensure it doesn’t damage your battery or device.
A 1.8-liter hydration pack with a long sip tube and spill-proof bite guard also sits inside, making it an ideal companion for weekend hikes and day trips. Construction is lightweight nylon for the bag, which helps it keep the entire pack’s heft (including the solar panels) to just 2.6 pounds.
Solar chargers are quite useful to have with you outdoors. The SUNLABZ Solar Backpack is designed to keep your gadgets charged everywhere you go. It is capable of charging iPhones, Samsung smartphones, battery packs, GPS devices, and mp3 players. The backpack features highly efficient solar cells with 22% efficiency rate. You get to charge your devices directly from the USB port (5V).
The Solar Charger Backpack is available in 7W and 13W versions. It comes with a hydration pack and various pockets for your gear
