Need To Charge On The Go? Voltaic Release New “Solar Powered Bag” For Exactly That

/ 6 years ago



Voltaic has released a brand new “solar powered” bag to join its existing portfolio of solar powered products. This particular bag, named the Switch, is optimised for smaller form factor tablets and is ideal for holiday-goers and hikers. The bag is designed for 8inch or less tablets, so anything from iPad Mini size or smaller, and has a 6 watt solar panel that can charge your typical smartphone in about four hours under direct sunlight.

The Voltaic Switch has an integrated 4000 mAh battery which is about 1.5-2X the size of your average high end smartphone battery. This battery can also be charged by USB if you want to give it a head-start before you set off on your travels. If 4000 mAh isn’t enough battery capacity for you then Voltaic do offer an optional 10,600 mAh cell for an additional $39 to help boost your capacity to 14,600 mAh which is more than enough for pretty much any tablet on the market.

The bag comes in only one colour but there are two solar panel colours, the one pictured above with silver trim, or one with black trim. The bag costs $129 on its own while adding the upgrade battery costs a further $39. You can check the product out on the Voltaic store here. It’s certainly a pretty nifty looking gadget but I doubt I’d find much use for it in my average day around inner London.
