      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. ;)

      Hi guys.

      I backed the shoulderbag and have heard nothing for months.

      Mind updating me on what's happening?

      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.

      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!

      My battery is not charging. The light doesn't flash. Is it broken? Can I get it fixed?

    8. Marty999 on April 18

      My battery is not charging via solar. I am not sure why? The lights flash, but it does not charge. Anyone else having this problem? It does recharge when I plug it in, but not by solar.

      Hi, Adrian.

      Almost a month has gone after the last "update" (it really wasn't) on shoulderbag. No more info, not a single word about it in a month.

      Will I receive it any time soon? Should I start to worry?

      Looking forward for your answer.

      thank you.

      @Reese, We're glad to hear that! Also, a window of plastic would block functional UV light for charging. With regards to the shoulder bags, updates soon! :)

      @Noël Blum, We're glad to hear that! We appreciate your feedback! :)

      @Anurag Edbor, We're very sorry for the delay. We're having some trouble with other countries because of the lithium. As soon as we have a concrete information, we will surely update you. Thank you fory our patience.

      Everything works fine.

      Not a fan of the hole where the solar panel sticks out, wish there was a thin plastic sheet there instead to make it "naturally" water resistant.

      Anywho, looking forward to the "Lifepack Shoulder bag". When do you think that's shipping?

      Is anyone's powerbank facing the same problem?
      Plugged into all my wall chargers with different USB cables non of it is charging my solarbank up. So I decided to put it under the sun, and after 2 hours there's still nothing.

      @creator - sure let me know how I can send you video along with lots of pictures.

      Here are few things I uncovered. After charing for entire day yesterday, outside in sunny Florida from fully drained, after checking the meter, it indicated zero. plugged my phone to see if it would charge, nothing. Then plugged into the wall for 5 seconds and after unplugging it showed one bar. I plugged my phone and got around 40% of charge on my iPhone... interesting.

      I figured today I will try charging with partial juice from the wall... so I plugged it in last evening, got to when exactly one bar was charged, unplugged. I set the solarbank out this morning, once again rather sunny day (UV rating hitting 7 out of 10 at times). After entire day, only one bar. I plugged in to the wall for 5 seconds... 2 bars showed up. So plugged in my iPhone and got 22% charge before solarbank's status went down to 1 bar.

      So essentially entire day yesterday produced 40% and today's sun produced 22%.

      Perhaps I'm doing something wrong... looking forward to feedback, and if units aren't up to specks, I think we all will understand since this was prototype, but some level of clarity is needed.

      @anyone out there who is having luck with the solarbank, certainly please post more info.

    24. Anurag Edbor on March 27

      hey guys,
      ive waited for a long time to get my pack and after repeatedly sending u mails upon mails ive received just one copy paste reply again n again saying u guys will look into it and update me without any further updates. its been more than a mobth since ive paid the shipping charges and i still have no way to track the courier. im receiving no help from u guys whatsoever. im extremely dissappointed. ive backed your project with utmost trust and this is what happens !! can u guys look into the matter ....for the umpteenth time and give me a satisfying reply ASAP ?

    25. Katharina Tanzberger on March 27

      the bag is great and i love th solarbank, but me too i have the feeling it is charging extremely slowly. have you tested various solarbanks in your offices? yes, i am in austria, and sunhours are not that abound here yet, but i left it out in direct sunlight the whole weekend and it indicated up to 4 sometimes all 5 charginglights...
      thanks, kat

      Having some issues with my lock! At first, was working great. Then suddenly the old code I had set up stopped working. Possibly got reset at some point during use??

      Is there a reset code or something that can help me get this thing unlocked again?

      Please help! Lol my stuff is inside!

    27. Pete on March 25

      Possibly i sounded a bit unfriendly, but you can not blame the slow charging speed on the capacity, even if you say it only appears to be slow. According to Adrian, ~4 hours solar charging gives you one iPhone charge of 3000 mAh, and since the solar bank holds only 6 now, as opposed to 12 in the campaign, 4 hours of sun should charge the solar bank to a third.
      But after a full day of sun the solar bank didnt even show 1 light or 25%
      And yes, it was indicating charge.

    28. Pete on March 25

      Are you f*** kidding me?
      You literally gave me the answer i specifically wanted NOT to hear again. While it may be big in your terms, i am far from calling it big, let alone very big. Of course it serves other functions aswell, but its powerbank capacity is average at best. The bag had a very good price overall, but honestly i think you were bullshitting and overpraising the power bank and its charging speed.
      Solar charging is unsatisfyingly slow to rely on it alone, and instead of giving specs during the campaign, you just wrote "big", which turns out to be 11.000 mAh, which shall feed an iPhone with roughly 3.000 mAh capacity 12 times? No way!

      Hey Solgaard & co.!
      First of all, wow. The Lifepack is, hands down, the best backpack I have ever had. Have also received so many compliments and questions on it! Now wishing I'd gotten another for my husband too!

      I've a question I hope one of you can help with. The lock no longer works - not with the code I chose or the original. How does one reset it?

      @Lamata Alexandre, we're very sorry for the delay on our response. I have sent you a message few hours regarding your issue.

      @Marcin Kubiak, would it be alright if you can send us a video while charging your solarbank in direct sun? Thanks!

      @Miguel Zafra, we're sorry to hear that. I will have to check this with our Orders Team. Also, please send your complete shipping details for reference. Thanks!

      @Pete, yes, that is abolutely correct. It's a huge battery after all. :)

      @Daniel there is no included cord, because an apple certified charging cord was too expensive to procure for the large number of backers and it would have required more shipping certification and verification, so they opted to not include the cord instead of giving everybody sub-par cords that were not certified

      Hello, I have received my bad but it did not have the extra charging cable stretch goal with it. I have checked every pocket including the hidden ones, it is not here. Is there anything that can be done about this?

      Also, did anyone else encounter this problem?

    34. Pete on March 22

      I have the same issue of the sun not charging it fast enough.
      "The Solarbank is big so it takes long to charge it, durr" is not a satisfying answer. Especially if you mean 11.000 mAh by big, which is a normal size for smaller powerbanks.

    35. Miguel Zafra on March 20


      I still have not received my bag. I am in Spain. I have not received either any shipping email. Can you check this for me ? It's been almost a year :(.

      Hi guys,
      I saw your post the other day on high capacity of the battery and that it needs to get a lot of direct sun to charge up. I live in Florida and on numerous days have left the battery outside in direct sun for the entire day. But am not seeing any sun absorption, even thought the indicators are blipping up to 4-5 throughout the day. Yesterday for instance I left drained solarbank outside all day, and didn't get one bar at the end of the day. Is there a trick to charging it? There is no issue getting juice when plugging to the wall, but I'm not having any luck with direct sun.
      Thanks in advance for your reply.

    37. Lamata Alexandre on March 19

      I LOVE my lifepack.

      One bit of feedeback / product quality improvement: Make a better lock. Mine fell apart (all the bits fell out of the lock casing). I can replace the lock, and I'm still in love with the bag, but this is a good area to focus on for v2.0. Or maybe you could work with Abloy for a custom unpickable lock? That would be so nerdy-cool.

      Fun story: When the band didn't show up to rehearse the timing of a march we did for NYE, I put the song on my solarbank, flipped it around so the speaker faced out, and pied piper-ed the whole performance group down the street. It was epic. I also locked my bag under the stage during the show -- first performance I haven't had to worry about my stuff being stolen.

      Hi Creator, just wanted to say I've been using my bag for 9 weeks now and it's fabulous! I use it all the time, and it's super comfy and convenient- and secure! The padding has helped save my laptop a few times, and all the little features have come in handy at one point or another. Really well designed, and I get loads of comments on it. I use the speakers/battery all the time too, and can't wait to try it out on holiday this summer.
      Thanks very much!
