Gallery: JUICE SOLAR TOTE from ReWare


Here’s the perfect carry-all solution if you’re headed back to school but just don’t want summer to end- the Juice solar tote from Reware is big enough for your new textbooks, but beach ready for your last few Indian summer adventures. These durable bags can “re-juice” smaller electronics such as cell phones, BlackBerry, PDA, MP3 player or handheld GPS. And even better, they’re made from biodegradable canvas, and the panel itself can be removed and use separately from the bag.

While we have yet to find a solar-powered bag to fully juice a laptop, this tote certainly delivers enough power to recharge your cell phone, iPod, or other small electronics in about the same time as a traditional wall socket. Weighing in with a power rating of 6.3 Watts and 16.6 Volts, you’ll be glad to have such power on your shoulder the next time your cell phone dies on your way to class. Travel to class in style and soak up the sun in green style!

And check out the selection of other solar-powered bags at Reware, including their Juice 1.0 messenger-meets-backpack style bag (below).

    Does it works well even when it’s big rain? (sorry for my english)

    This is a very interesting idea, something i’ve been thinking about for a while. portable, personal solar powered sources seem like a very promising idea for reducing grid energy usage. just think if half of the hundreds of millions of cell phones in use today were rechared off the grid? the small amount of energy used by each adds up quickly. i’ve been waiting for someone to make an umbrella out of solar powered material. while it may sound like an oxymoron, haveing lived and traveled in tropical and even subtropical climates, shelter from the sun in an umbrella makes sense. now if only i could charge my cell phone, camera battery, or a couple of AA or AAA batteries…

    although the bag is cool. it is overpriced to the point of being ludicrous. (or maybe that’s just me) why would you ever spend that kind of money for a beach bag? these particular bags aren’t even made of recycled materials as the other overpriced bags featured here.
