You can keep and charge your laptop, camera, and smart-phone with 9 watt mono-crystalline solar panel attached with the bag.
If you're a traveler or a photographer who love nature and are out for places where little or no electricity is available then this high-performance solar backpack is going to provide you the power to the devices and its 25 litres space is enough to pack them along with other necessary items.
How does it work?
Place the solar panel array outside under the sunlight, it will convert the sunlight into electric current that will charge your laptop, smartphone, camera, etc while you’re enjoying your picnic among friends.
Its mono-crystalline solar panel with 20% efficiency means that one can charge even on dull and rainy days.
The battery bank is fitted in the side pocket giving it more room for ventilation and keeping it cool and separate from other components.
If you’re going for expeditions into the Himalayas for extensive filming and photography and little or no electricity is available for charging then this product is a safe bet to give desired results in harsh conditions.

It’s a big bag with 25 litres capacity, specifically designed for long trips, hiking, expeditions in which you can keep all your stuff and can use it during an emergency.
Think twice when you’re when you don not require that much space as the large bag may remain empty, giving you a clumsy feeling of hanging it at the back without that much stuff into it.
The battery bank is placed in the side pocket, making this slightly unbalanced therefore you need to keep the flask to the other side to balance it.
Its durable PET technology and hefty features makes it a bit heavier than its counterparts.

5) Renogy's 100 watt portable mini-solar power system
"Generate your own electricity when you're outside, travelling, camping etc"
I would say that this kit is ideal for first-time users as it comes with all the things that are needed by the starters.
Tip: The output varies according to the intensity of sunlight. You may get 100 watt power in a clear and sunny weather while it may under-perform in the cloudy weather.
There could be delay Due to heavy customer traffic, the customer care response time made be delayed.
