Black Hills Solar Charger BackPack

Black Hills Solar Charge BackPack

The Black Hills Solar Charger Rucksack is a spacious and lightweight 25 litre backpack that features a solar powered charger built into it. The Black Hills Solar Backpack uses sunlight to trickle-charge the internal Lithium battery. The charger can then be used to charge all of your gadgets, such as MP3 players, mobile phones, PDAs, etc.

The solar panel on the backpack delivers a maximum output of 6V at 120mA, and the battery delivers a maximum output of 3.7V at 800mA. In strong sunlight, it takes around 10 to 14 hours to fully charge the internal battery. However, if you want to top up the internal battery, you can do so with the provided USB cable or AC adaptor. Using the USB or AC alternative, you can charge the internal battery in just 2 hours.

The backpack will fully charge most devices in around 2-3 hours. The bag comes with 17 essential adaptors, which covers the majority of gadgets. The bag also features a headphone port, presumably so that you can keep your music play in your bag and plug your headphones in from outside the bag.

The Black Hills Solar Charger Rucksack costs around £49, with free delivery in the UK. Looks like this bag is a great combination of quality and features, and it easily beats other solar-charger bags that I’ve seen!

    I’ve seen a few of these coming onto the market. I really like the idea of them. You can take it to the beach or the country and not worry about your phone running out of power

    Agreed. There are lots of handy charging solutions out there. I’ve just bought a new 3Gs iPhone and it’s very power hungry so I bought one of the Black Hills Solar backpacks above.

    Blooming good and worked a treat on my recent holiday.

    I managed to pick one and saved myself 40%: http://www.blackhillsoutdoor.com/special-offer.html
