The Voltaic Backpack, a backpack with solar pannels
I am looking for a good backpack to take with me to Spain in March. I am going to try and fit a weeks worth of clothes and other travel essentials into the backpack so I don’t have to bring any other luggage with me. (Hey, I am an Eagle Scout, I know how to travel light.) I know that Europe has different electrical sockets and I am going to bring my digital camera with me. With the Voltaic Backpack I wouldn’t have to worry about getting any kind conversion kit.
But I am not sold on this backpack just yet. While the convience of being able to charge various electrical items is applealing, this backpack doesn’t come cheap. It has a price tag of $249. I am not sure if I am ready to put that kind of money into a backpack.
Also if it gets stolen while I am in Spain, I will be SCREWED. But I guess if I buy another backpack and that gets stolen, I would be screwed as well.
This looks like a great backpack, and I might just get it. I only wish there was a way to sort of hide the solar pannels. I don’t want to draw any unwanted attention to myself while I am in Spain.
