Voltaic Array Solar Laptop Charger Backpack

Students are always on the go, and it’s hard to keep a laptop charged while trekking from class to class. Solar bags offer a smart low-impact charging solution – and Voltaic sets the bar by which all photovoltaic bags are judged. Their new Array Backpack is a cutting edge powerhouse emblazoned with a removable 10 watt solar panel that is capable of charging a laptop! The Array also features a battery that doubles your notebook’s runtime (when fully charged), a padded laptop sleeve, plenty of organization pockets, and 1,500 cubic inches of storage for all of your books, binders, bits, and Bobbles.

These brilliant BPA-free recycled plastic bottles are fitted with a colorful carbon filter that purifies water as you drink – so you’ll always have access to a fresh source of H2O wherever your studies take you.
