Voltaic Launches First Solar Bag to Charge Laptops
New York-based Voltaic Systems announced the release of its new solar bag, the Generator. The bag produces enough solar power to fully charge a laptop from less than one day in the sun.
The new Generator features a high-efficiency 15 watt solar panel that recharges a custom-designed battery pack in about five hours and stores solar power until needed. The battery holds the equivalent of a full laptop charge and can also be charged from a wall outlet.
CEO Shayne McQuade stated “Since the release of our first bag, our customers have been asking about charging laptops. By using 20 percent efficiency solar cells, we are now able to pack enough power into a compact case.”
For each hour in the sun, the Generator extends laptop run time by 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the efficiency of the laptop. An hour in the sun also generates enough power to fully charge most phones, MP3 players and small cameras.
The bag is constructed from fabrics made with recycled soda bottles (P.E.T.) which are tough, waterproof and UV-resistant. It includes a protective frame and padded laptop sleeve with storage room for other items.
Voltaic was founded in 2004 to develop green energy solutions and sustainable products using environmentally intelligent designs.
