In today’s world, we become more and more connected, accessible and more dependent on technology than ever before. Sure we love the outdoors- we love nature, love hiking, going to the beach, surfing, having camping expeditions, enjoying a great barbecue or just lazing in the afternoon sun by the beach and having a picnic. Nature offers thousands of sights, sounds and smells no Sony PSP or LDC TV’s can offer. But no matter how adventurous we are, how we love the great outdoors and how often we say we can go without technology, the truth is, there is a nagging feeling at the back of our minds that keep telling us that we need to be with at least one device to help us incase we get lost, we need help or directions.
We have become so dependent on technology that most of us at least carry our mobile phones around with the reason- in case of emergencies. Don’t get me wrong, I agree with that. I too would carry some form of communication with me when I go hiking-my favorite outdoor activity. Bringing my mobile phone along, I always worry about the battery dying off. But off late, I have been introduced with the latest inventions in the all new line of solar products- the solar backpack. The solar backpack is a great technology for those who not only love solar products, but would want something that is convenient, versatile and aids in quick charging of mobile phones, cameras watches and so on.
These backpacks are ideal for travelers, for use on the beach, for skiing, sailing, walking, fishing, camping and yes, hiking as it is designed as a mobile solar powered generator to charge virtually all handheld electronic gadgets and gizmos. The solar backpack is designed with the environment in mind, thus it uses natures own energy source- the sun, to charge. These bags come equipped with solar panels that are lightweight, tough and waterproof at the outside of the bag and are powerful enough to charge a typical laptop, iPod, digital camera and mobile phone anytime.
Also, should there be any surplus of power; this will be stored in a battery pack so you can use the power when you need it. The backpacks also come with easy connection to devices. With standard adaptors included, you can charge you mobile phones and other handheld devices as well as your laptop. Even without an adaptor, you can charge most devices with a standard car charger or USB charger. Since solar backpacks are environmentally friendly, they do not produce any emissions or harm the environment in any way whatsoever. The battery pack is continuously recharged via a nearly indestructible array of photo-voltaic panels which convert light into free energy. It’s the sun, so it’s free! Solar backpacks are generally built to generate up to 4 watts of power.
Not only can you charge handheld electrical devices, the bags design is big enough to allow you to carry your laptop in it. The advances in solar technology have made life more comfortable than ever before. And not only that, these advances are all geared towards protecting and conserving the environment.
