      Hi. I opened a ticket and never received a response. I received an email that said:
      "Your request (2055) has been received and is being reviewed by our support staff."
      Can you please respond to the request. It's not good that you sent a defective product.

      Backpack is great been through a few trips now only complaint I have is the stitching on the laptop compartment zipper on same side of the lock cable is pulling apart.

    6. Mechalle Poppy on November 24

      I love this bag, I carry it everywhere. The only issue is the lock, after some time (it may have gotten bumped around a lot while tucked into the sleeve) it no longer locks. It opens to any combination now. The speaker also seems to be somewhat susceptible to overheating if I use it out in the sun or for a long period of time. It will start cutting in and out. Otherwise a fantastic product.

      My lock does the same. And a few times I couldn’t spin the wheels. Once when it wouldn’t lock no matter what it was set it suddenly locked and I have no idea what it set to.

      My other bitch would be the battery that takes a solid 2 days to fully charge from an outlet. (I have sent email about this). I have no idea how the solar panels could possibly do anything.

      My rave would be that the bag is super comfy. The inside pockets are well designed (so far) too.

      Hi I got the same problem as Matt Myers. The solar bank will not charge and no blue light. I tried to charge it for 2 days now. Nothing. Just want to let the community know that there is such problem.

      I have used this bag daily for a few months. After a few weeks one of the zipper handles fell off and now the 2 of the number dials on the lock have also fallen off. Funny because I have never really used the lock. Overall an okay bag but showing some poor quality and craftsmanship.

    26. Solgaard Design 3-time creator on July 10, 2017

      @Eulogio L. Ortiz, we're so sorry to hear that. Can you please send us a private message with your physical address? I have checked our account and we actually uploaded your bag and it got cancelled. So sorry for the inconvenience.

      @Timmy nguyen, sorry to hear that happened to your lock! Please send us an email so we can further assist you.

      @Marty999, glad to hear that you like the new version of the solarbank. Yes, it can charge any new version with USB-C charging.

      @Argelis Torres, Sorry to hear about your issue! Unfortunately, there's no easy way to reset the code of your lock.

      @Matt Myers, sorry to hear about your problem. Please send us an email for further assistance.

      Hello, I purchase a bag, have had it for a couple of months, however my solarbank recently stopped working and will not charge ( no blue lights). What's the warranty process to return and receive a new solarbank? Everything else with the bag is great.

    28. Argelis Torres on June 22, 2017

      Its possible to reset the Lock, I Accidentally locked, and dont remember de code.

    29. Marty999 on June 20, 2017

      Love the new solar charger. I cant send a message on the other page, wondering one thing: can it charge a macbook? You should try to increase the volts that come out of a port. Unfortunately 5V from a USB is too low to charge a mac... 12V would be perfect. Is this something that is possible? If so, I'm buying one

      My security lock broke apart right before my eyes as I was unlocking it from the backpack.

      Is there a warranty on this?

      hi creators, everything has been totally fine with my solarbank till yesterday. now it blinks under the sun, so i guess it is still charging itself, but the solarbank does not charge my phone anymore and i cannot turn the bank on, so i cannot connect is through the bluetooth with my phone, and i have done that without any problem till yesterday. i can sent you a video if you want.

    38. Justin Loh on May 11, 2017

      Hi Adrian, I have issues with my lock too! A replacement will be great. tried to lock my bag to the chair and it can't open as the numbers got scrambled. It's not working now.

      Thanks.
      Justin

      PS: aside from this issue, the bag is amazing! Love it lots.

    39. Solgaard Design 3-time creator on May 10, 2017

      Hi Thim and Annie, We are aware of the issues with the lock. We are working on a replacement lock and have been since March. The new tooling is being opened at the moment. Anyone that has issues with their lock will be sent a free replacement. It is taking a long time for this lock to be completed since it is a complex custom made part, inside of the lock there are 30 moving pieces which all need to be perfect.

      On the current product we have had around 140 issues on the lock in total, some with lost combinations/accidentally scrambled/some broken. Keep in mind that this is out of over 12,500 bags in peoples hands today. It is a little over a 1% failure rate.

      To anyone that has an issue with their lock please send an email to info@solgaard.co and we will replace your lock when they are completed later this year.

      Re: Annie, the other bag project. As mentioned in the comment I made on that page - that bag was made in the same factory as Lifepack. We have a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) with them and their design team during our lock discussions. They are clearly infringing on our utility patent which is still not under full public disclosure. I have shown our patent documents to their team in person but did not send a digital copy of the documents as my lawyer recommended not to. It is a an illegal move on their part and our lawyers will be in touch with them in due course. I'm being quite transparent about this in this message and will not post further comments about it as this is an issue to be dealt with by lawyers privately and not in an public forum.

      I'm a man of my word and I will keep my promise on getting the replacement locks to those who need them. It will take some time for product development, and will be much later this year by the time we can send them. I appreciate your patience.

      @ Solgaard/Adrian Just read the comments on clickpack pro (I'm not a backer of theirs) in terms of the lock. I feel that the retractable lock should be improved, because as of now I have to physically push mine in. If clickpack pro's retractable lock really does retract as it's suppose to, they definitely have a better design there. Might need to improve on that for the next upcoming version :)

      All in all a total nightmare. Package arrived so late that I was not in the country any more. Then a customs nightmare involving heavy fines for incorrectly declared package contents. On top of the customs duties made it the most expensive bag ever. Refused the Lifepack and told them to send it back.

    43. Psypang Kao on April 28, 2017

      I still haven't got my Lifepack, but I can buy it from Amazon. What can I say?
      Hope the Lifepack team can deal with it as soon as possible. Don't let someone who like Lifepack down.

      Ah, you did kinda respond, sorry.

      But I've read that direct messages are being sent to backers of the shoulderbag, and I have not got one yet. Mind sending one my way.

      Many thanks, and still love the powerbank to this day, nifty device, works so well with my Nintendo Switch. ;)

    47. Reese on April 24, 2017

      Hi guys.

      I backed the shoulderbag and have heard nothing for months.

      Mind updating me on what's happening?

      Christian on April 24, 2017

      So I love the bag and my battery works great, BUT, my lock busted. I would notice that my lock would separate from time to time and reset my combination. It was not a big deal because the lock would only separate a few millimeters and I would just have to input my combination, press the lock together and it would easily function as normal. Yesterday however, I heard metal fall from my bag only to find that my lock split in half and all the gears fell out. The only piece I was able to recover was the internal lock itself. My question, may I receive replacement parts? My lock has pretty much been stripped.

    49. Aaron Hong on April 24, 2017

      I'm having the same issue as Khushbash. I didn't change my code from the default and haven't used it a for a while, but it no longer opens.

    50. Khushbash on April 22, 2017

      Hi, So I didnt use my life pack for a while and now the code I entered doesnt like lock it like the lock opens on any code. How do I fix this? I tried to hold the lock down and then circle the numbers to a different combo and it doesnt work. Thanks!
