Another Way to Stay Juiced Outside: Voltaic Solar Backpack

email this page

Pretty soon we won't have any excuses at all to stay home. With a bit of solar power on your backpack, think of all the possibilities. Sure, you can keep your iPhone charged run all those snazzy outdoorsy apps you bought.

Let's get a little more out there. Oh, you need to pump breast milk? Let's rest here on this precipice with a view of - go ahead pick one - Yosemite Valley, Canyonlands, the Sonoran Desert and plug in the breast pump. Wee-whirrr wee-whirrr wee-whirrr. Okay, not quite the sound you want while gazing at Earth's splendors, but you'll take what you can get.

The Voltaic Solar Backpack sports a dandy solar panel that charges a small universal USB battery and you can attach a de-juiced phone, GPS, or camera for a recharge.  Yes, I said camera. Now we're really getting somewhere.

I'm going to sound like an infomercial guy, so forgive me when I say the awesomeness doesn't stop there. The bag is constructed out of waterproof and UV resistant fabrics that come from from recycled soda bottles. That's cool.

Disclosure: I received nothing - no cash, no credit, no free goods - for posting this.
