Solar Bag That Charges A Laptop

A cool new item out on the market is this Solar Powered Bag that can charge a laptop and other devices like cell phones. The Solar Powered Bag looks like a great idea. It looks like you just sit the bag in a place with direct sunlight and it will charge the battery inside the bag. Then it looks like whenever you are not using your laptop you just put the laptop inside the bag and plug it into the battery pack and it will start to charge. The solar paneled bag can hold up to a 17” laptop and it says “the solar panel generates enough power to fully charge a typical laptop from a day of direct sunlight”.

After doing some research it looks like you need to have the bag in direct sunlight for 8-10 hours before you will be able to plug in your laptop and receive a full charge. Sounds like an easy way to save money right, well wrong the bag costs $600. Pretty hefty price for a bag that requires you to have it sit out in the sun for 10 hours. I can see some people liking this like maybe people out in the middle of no where with no electricity and maybe some eco-friendly people.
