You are searching for a fashionable backpack where you can carry your laptop and every-day carry? Additionally, you love to be independent and recharge your mobile devices with an environment-friendly power source? Then we have the perfect fit for you!

Meet EXPLORER+ The Solar Backpack With Detachable Solar Panel

SunnyBAG introduces the first solar backpack with a 100% certified solar panel. 100% means that every single solar panel will get tested, and every backer will receive their own certificate. The solar panel is easy to remove and will recharge a lot of different mobile devices including mobile phones, tablets, GPS devices, wearables, ... and of course power banks. So, you'll have your independent current source always with you.

 

The SunnyBAG EXPLORER+ is made of a robust weather-resilient fabric and offers multiple compartments for holding a 15.6-inch laptop, camera, spiral bound notepads, calendar, mobile devices and other gizmos for every-day carry.

The solar panel consists of SUNPOWER® cells with 22.4% efficiency. These are the strongest solar cells available on the market. When used in direct sunlight, the solar panel of the SunnyBAG EXPLORER+ is most efficient in charging mobile devices. The 6 watts solar panel allows you to recharge a 10.000 mAh power bank within 7 hours.

Become a backer of this project and pick a reward! You effectively pre-order this SunnyBAG EXPLORER+ solar backpack and you'll get a special backer discount. You will receive your reward by Christmas before it is available in stores.

Evolution of Our Solar Backpack

Over the years we developed several different solar backpacks. All of them inspired us in developing the newest backpack - the SunnyBAG EXPLORER+. The greatest improvements of the newest solar backpack include:

  • High efficiency solar panel - strongest panel in SunnyBAG solar backpacks ever 
  • 100% tested and certified solar panel 
  • Solar panel is easier to remove
  • Fashionable design

 

The SunnyBAG Story

SunnyBAG was launched by Stefan Ponsold in Graz, Austria to create solar bags for Doctors Without Borders with sophisticated design that had never been seen before. Since 2010, we've developed and produced solar bags and solar panels to charge smartphones, tablets and wearables on the go in an environmentally friendly way. In this field, we're the #1 company in Europe with more than 600 points of sale and great cooperation projects. We've also founded the SunnyBAG Inc. based in Silicon Valley.

Risks and challenges

We did and will do our best to successfully deliver what we've promised to our backers. Component delays and unexpected shortages can happen. In that case, we'll do our best to solve the problem.

Because we ship express from our production partner in China to your door, we want to inform you that customs and taxes are not included in the price. Depending to your home country, delivery might take longer. You may also have to complete a customs declaration form and pay customs fees and/or taxes raised by the authorities of your country before receiving your SunnyBAG EXPLORER+. You need to take care of this yourself, and we can't cover any compensation claims that arise due to your personal effort while handling these issues. Thank you for your understanding.

We will support you in every matter. Please contact us if you have any queries.
