Voltaic Solar powered Backpack


voltaic_green.jpgVoltaic has a nice range of Solar Backpacks and Messenger Bags. This is no news but we wanted to bring the Solar range to your attention because summer time is approaching and with it usually more sunlight. That’s also the time of the year where Solar power harnessing will be most effective.Do not forget the environmental benefits. Every hour you avoid connecting to the power grid helps reducing air pollution and global warming.

The third benefit for you could be to have enough juice for your all your electronic gadgets during your extended outdoor trips.

The Voltaic solar bags are mobile power generators, designed to charge your devices without tying you to a power outlet, which makes them ideal for traveling.

Just plug a standard car charger into the bag and recharge most small electronic devices like: mobile phones, cameras, PDA’s, and MP3s. Note: it is not designed to charge laptops.

If you don’t have a car charger, the bags come with a set of 11 standard adaptors for common mobile phones, MP3 player and other devices.

Embedded in the outside of the bags are three lightweight, tough, waterproof solar panels which generate up to 4 watts of power. A lot of power if you manage to catch the sun full head on.

Included in the bags is a Li-Ion battery pack which stores any surplus power generated, so it is available when you need it – not just when the sun is up. The solar panels even charge when not directly exposed to the sunlight, though in this case the charging time will be longer.

You can choose among 3 different Backpack models and each model comes in four different colors for the Solar panels.


The price ranges from $ 199.- up to $ 249.- and can be ordered directly via Voltaic’s online store.
