Okay, you can say I'm a bit behind on this, but I had no idea these things existed. I actually stumbled across them while looking for something else. Once I found them I had to know more about them so I started doing some research on them.
I wanted to know how they worked, which were the best ones, how many different kinds there were and how much they cost?
If you would rather skip the post and see for yourself which ones you would like, here is a link to some you can check out.
So What Is A Solar Power Backpack Really Good for?
The backpack has become one of the most popular accessories around. I mean you see them everywhere and everybody seems to have one. And they are used to carry things like cell phones, MP3 players, PDAs and other mobile electronic devices. What better place to have a charge for those devices.
I mean just think about it, if you're hiking or camping there's no worry about keeping your cell phone and GPS device charged. Your kids can't use the excuse of their cell phone not being charged as the reason they couldn't call you or you couldn't reach them after school.
If there is an electric outage that lasts for a long time you will still be able to work on your laptop or have your cell phone available in case of an emergency.
There are just so many situations where solar charging backpack can come in handy.
Lets Look At Some Of These Backpacks
Here's How A Solar Powered Backpack Works
First of all as we all know we get solar power from the sun. We do this by using solar panels made up of PV (photovoltaic) cells grouped together to make a panel. These panels absorb light from the sun and turns it into electricity. Now this electricity can be used immediately or stored in a battery for later use.
Okay, so a solar charger backpack is equipped with solar panels that are attached to the outside of the pack so they can absorb the sun's rays. These panels are lightweight and waterproof. The backpack also has a lithium-ion battery pack inside in order to store the electricity.
A ten hour charge of the battery pack will produce fifty-five hours of electricity.

If you have kids I would think that one of these would give you a better since of security knowing that their cell phone will always have power giving you the opportunity to keep in touch with them and they with you in case they needed you.
