Ralph Lauren blesses us with a phone-charging backpack

by Gareth Mankoo

The days of the speaker backpacks are past. It’s now the time for backpacks to do something more productive than entertain us. So we have the Ralph Lauren backpack that does more. It charges your cellphone, using solar energy. Basically, the bag (read: device) has a solar panel that charges your phone while you’re on the move, over the hills and far away. What’s more is you get a chance to enjoy nature more freely while that distracting device is dealt with as it juices up. The four solar cells responsible for the charging can be found on the harness of the bag.

The 3.45 Watts is enough to charge your device soon enough, before you start missing it. All it takes is $800 to have a luxury product with utility.
