There are a lot of solar backpacks around, but few can match the features of the OffGrid Solar Backpack as a storage device and power source.

This isn’t just an ordinary solar bag, but a versatile backpack that can meet the needs of a hiker, casual traveler, or even a businessman. At 18″ H x 12″ W x 8″ D, there’s enough room in it not just for your smartphone, but even your laptop, camping gear and some food.

The OffGrid Backpack is equipped with a 4W solar panel with a maximum capacity of 11W hour, a charging time of 7 hours under the sun and 5.5 from a USB port. The panels are detachable so you can put it on a rack, bike or another storage device. Because it is spacious and flexible, the OffGrid Backpack is perfect for those who are going on an expedition, hiking, or headed to the wilderness. This isn’t just for campers but even scientists and researchers who have to go to areas where there’s no electricity.

Another reason why you can bring the backpack when away from civilization is that it is very durable, waterproof, and lightweight. Did we mention that it is also stylish?
