Does anyone remember the days when you could only charge your phone when you were next to an outlet? While charging with AC power remains the conventional charging form, wall chargers are often ignored in the face of USB cables, charging cradles and charging mats, extended batteries, and now, a solar backpack?
Ralph Lauren recently announced that the company will be carrying (no pun intended) a new solar backpack that can charge your mobile device while on-the-go. The backpack enables the generation of a “3.45 watt current, enabling charges to iPod® Classic and mobile phone devices.”
This claim, of course, comes with the disclaimer that “proper sunlight orientation” yields the best results. We get plenty of sunlight here in Texas, but the $795.00 price tag will keep me charging my phone in the car or in the wall for a few more days.
