With an integrated flexible solar panel the Beam backpack provides sustainable power for your mobile devices. Like the idea? Let’s have a look.
The Beam is an advanced and powerful solar powered backpack that measures 12.5 x 18.1 x 5.9 inches and weighs approx 2.77 pounds. As we can see from the images, the backpack shows off a sleek and minimalistic appearance design, and the solid black exterior allows it to blend well with any personal style. Meanwhile, the polyester exterior delivers a durable, water-resistant construction, and the fabric lining gently keeps your belongings in place.
The backpack comes equipped with a flexible solar panel on the front cover. Through testing, when it’s in the sun, the solar panel only needs 2.5 hours to fully charge your iPhone X. Furthermore, an integrated voltage adapter not only charges your mobile devices with two USB ports, but also controls the power input/output for stable and fast charging. The backpack also has an external USB adapter that connects with the voltage adapter so that you can more conveniently charge your phone without opening the backpack, and an extra microUSB port allows you to charge your power bank via USB wall charger.
Furthermore, using a fully openable design, the backpack allows you to easily organize your items inside, and padded computer compartments with Velcro strap securely holds your laptop and tablet in place. Two side pockets feature multiple slots to keeps some small items organized, and the zippered downward opening lets you quickly access your water bottle. Moreover, a hidden zippered pocket features RFID protection that prevents your cards from data thieves. In addition, the compression shoulder straps stabilize weight on lower back for a comfortable wearing experience.
The team behind Beam is raising fund for the product on Kickstarter. We can pledge $99 to preorder the solar power backpack. It will be shipped in November 2018.
