The Continental Solar Backpack moonlights as a briefcase or messenger bag, thanks to its stabilized shape, side handle, and detachable shoulder strap. The bag was thoughtfully crafted to look provocative enough for leisure, and subdued enough for business.

For superior security and ease of mind, a TSA-approved Travel Sentry lock bolts the main compartment’s zippers down to further prevent theft and espionage. The backpack’s exterior is water resistant for drizzles, while a waterproof rain cover is included for downpours.

Charge electronic devices merely with the power of the sun. Simply go for a stroll carrying the Continental Solar Backpack, place it next to a window, or set it down while you enjoy a cup of coffee or sip of wine alfresco.

The solar panels allow you to charge your devices during the day as well as power banks to store up battery power for later. Internal and external USB charging ports available.

A built-in intelligent chip identifies each device plugged in and automatically adjusts the energy output to provide the right amount of power which optimizes the charging quality and maximizes the overall battery life. It also offers multiple protections against overcharge, over-current, overload, and over-temperature.
