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!
