Luxury and Tech can make interesting bedfellows, as this Ralph Lauren solar backpack demonstrates. According to the website’s marketing spiel, it comes in a water-resistant material. Let’s hope you don’t get electrocuted if you slip in the stream while recharging your equipment on a hike, then.
That said, apparently it’s designed primarily to charge mobile phones in a couple of hours (2.45 watts under ideal conditions) – not an iPad, which requires 5-10 watts. That’s a lot of kit to get your phone back online.
The black colour might be more suitable to the tech professional but that won’t save you any money. It originally retailed at a whopping $795 but, currently, is on offer (at the time of this writing) for $556.
