SMARTPHONES are our best friends, but they suck a lot of energy. And usually run out of juice during our most joyful moments – summer breaks, festival days or relaxed chilling in the sun.

LUZPAC is a versatile beach-pool-rooftop-outdoor bag that converts your sunny moments into electricity. This innovative bag charges your phone, power bank or any other mobile device. The power is generated by a flexible, lightweight and high-performance solar panel, attached with two buckles to our functional bag. With it comes an extra pocket for your devices plus an inside pocket to keep all your items organized.

Join the #LUZPACrevolution and back us today ;)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our bags come in five summery colors with a strong zipper on top. They are made of durable and waterproof materials to ensure your belongings are always kept safe and dry. All our panels are waterproofed laminated, with one year guarantee on all electrical parts. And, they are standardized and interchangeable – for current and future LUZPACs to come :)

In 1954, on the 25th of April, the first silicon based solar pad saw public light at the Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ. Since then, solar technology for fixed installations on fields, at rooftops or even for orbital satellites has become ubiquitous. However, flexible, lightweight solar panels, to take, wear and pull over, are still a novelty. The first portable, high performance solar panels have been developed for expeditions, with no electrical outlet in reach. Over the years, those extremely costly devices became reasonable priced, enabling us to make this technology now affordable for everyday life.

Our flexible solar pads are made by SunPower USA, a manufacturer that combines lightweight with longevity and best available performance. The modules are then tested, assembled and finally laminated by our suppliers in Shenzhen – the worldwide hub for hardware innovation. Finally, all our panels get certified within binding international norms and provided with a one-year warranty on all electrical parts.

Born in Biscaya 

Sun. The waves. The beach and you. The ultimate relaxing mode. Just enjoying the day. Until you check your mobile. Until your battery is running out of juice. 

That was the setting last year, during some weekend, facing the Biscaya: I sensed there should be a better way to keep our devices up and running. Inspired by the sun I started researching regards portable solar solutions. Surprisingly, I found an emerging technology that is getting affordable for broader use. However, all the offered products lacked style and attractive design – they pretty much looked like designed by (and for) geeks. Trained as a designer, I immediately felt the ambition to make a different try that combines function & fashion: My vision was born to create an aesthetic and technological pleasant device.

The first prototypes were anything but near to that. I had to explore different suppliers, materials, fix performance issues and get a prototype at a competitive price. More than 10 busy months later I was ready to present my first, finalized prototype – the LUZPAC.

For almost one year, I received strong support and many helping hands. Together, we have built many prototypes, to test, learn, improve and optimize our product and get our manufacturers ready for a first production. We visited our factory, our shipping partners and consulted experts who know every detail in the solar and fashion tech world.

Moreover, our ambition was to build a great and stylish product not only for geeks, but a much larger audience – as we believe that solar is our future, sustainable lifestyle. To provide you an offer at an affordable price we need to produce at a certain scale. Therefore, we ask for your help and support, to turn this vision into reality.

Shortly, our LUZPAC should be launched with your support as our first product. No doubt, this will enable us to better understand the ideas and needs of our customers. Moreover, it will inspire us to bring new designs and offer further functionalities in the near future.

In the long run, all we want is to give back: Our vision of smart lifestyle-solutions that link with the Internet of Everything: We strongly believe these solutions should be always human-centric, intuitively to use, sustainable in their environmental impact and pleasant to all our aesthetic senses ;)

Risks and challenges

This is our first project and product. Although we have a background in product development, consulted many customers and industry experts, have put utmost attention to details and followed all requirements regards regulation, we are aware that our project might face some unexpected risks.
The biggest risk is about shipment and timing. We are aware that the fulfillment of shipping products worldwide is a big challenge. Although we are working on the best solution to serve all our backers at reasonable time and cost, we might face unexpected delays.

We will ensure that we keep our backers always informed and provide them with tracking codes, once shipping has started. Moreover we will work with our partners that shipping only starts after address verification.
