Why Solar Backpacks?
BirkSun designs evolved gear for day packers, as well as a tool for adventurers and thrill seekers. Perfect for city dwellers commuting to work on foot/bike, outdoor survivalists and everyone in between. In our increasingly connected world, the importance of charging on the go and keeping others up to speed on your life, has never been greater. That’s where solar backpacks come in – whether you are mountain biking in uncharted terrain or hitting the beach with friends, a pack that can reliably charge your electronic devices is indispensible.
BirkSun’s solar line provides dependability in the backcountry and the ability to utilize it without dipping into your 401(k) account. BirkSun bags allow the passionate, adventurous lifestyle to coexist with grid communication. When creating the BirkSun line, attention to detail concerning electronics and solar reliability were the highest priority. From our industry leading, matte finished monocrystalline solar panels to our dependable lithium polymer battery every aspect of the bag was created with a purpose. In addition to rigid technical enhancements, user-friendliness was not overlooked, such as the convenient, side battery window to determine when the pack receives solar/grid energy.
