Ever been in a situation when you are on the go and your precious electronic gadgets – smartphone, iPad, computer – dies at the most inopportune time? Here’s an innovative solution — termed the Powerbag, it lets you charge all of your portable electronics inside the pockets of a satchell bag.
Nicknamed the “ultimate survival gear for the digital age,” this bag was on display at the opening press reception for the Consumer Electronics Show2012.
The manufacturer, RFA Brands, initially released these bags in October, but continues to improve upon the devices in order to meet the needs of the electronics needy traveler on the go.
RFA has a number of different kinds of Powerbags, which are fitted with powerful batteries that can charge a number of mobile devices at once. You can get the Powerbag in the form of a backpack, messenger bag, sling bag, and others.
“It will charge all smartphones. It will charge all tablets, all e-readers, Bluetooth devices,” Dan Kurzon, vice president of sales for Powerbag, said. “Let’s say I have a bunch of devices — I have an iPhone, an iPad, a BlackBerry.I get to my hotel, I load up the bag with all those different devices and I plug it into the wall,” he said. “It’s going to charge up those devices and it’s going to charge up the battery on the bag.“
Features of Powerbag:
– Powerbag has built-in battery
– Charges all smartphones, tablets and readers
– Can charges all the devices at once
You can connect up to four mobile devices at a time using various connectors and the bag features 3000 mAh, 6000 mAh or 9000 mAh batteries depending on the style.
The system auto-detects the type of device and sends the right amount of charge to it. The Powerbags sell at $139.99 and are available at Best Buy, OfficeMax, QVC, F.Y.E., WirelessZone and Amazon.com.

It takes approximately one hour to charge the battery up for the bag and then it simply depends on how many devices you plug in for how long it will take to charge your electronics.
If you are as reliant on electronics as me, the Powerbag is an absolute must buy. A backpack is handy for carrying things around but how about this one that can also charge your smartphone on the go making it absolutely unnecessary to worry about how to extend battery life while traveling?
