About

Our vision is to build up a global network of people who use their own ressources of solar energy and produce their own electricity with the help of the sun. Together we can create the world's largest global solar project with lots of decentralized private solar stations. Be part of our community and share your sunny experience with your family and friends. The SunnyBAG SmartBattery will visualize the solar energy you are producing and support you in communicating with your community all over the world. 

Receive awards, SunnyBAG points and discounts for supporting our environment by charging solar energy and be part of a new green lifestyle. Join our global community of friends and neighbors committed to natural energy sources, working together to ensure the diversity of life on Earth and a healthy ecosystem.

    The SunnyBAG SmartBattery is really a smart battery. Period. It's packed with revolutionary features like,
  • visualizing solar-generated energy and consumption, 
  • share your experience on social media platforms, 
  • get automatic alarm in case of theft or 
  • shoot great selfies from the distance.

Selfies.

Take a picture from a distance by simply tapping your SmartBattery. With this feature, users can take selfies from a distance of up to 30 meters.

Security.

The SmartBattery is a genius when it comes to security. If you forget to take the battery with you, or in case of theft the SunnyBAG App sends a notification. As soon as the SmartBattery is moved away from your smartphone, a message is sent to your smartphone automatically.

Charging.

You can charge the SmartBattery with any standard outlet, but it is more sustainable to charge it with our SunnyBAG Solar Systems. Choose one of our SunnyBAG bundles, 

  • EXPLORER ADVENTURE, 
  • OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE or 
  • BUSINESS CLASS

and make your first experience in producing your own energy with the help of the sun.

Experience.

See how much green energy you produce with our SunnyBAG App and the additional time you generate to charge your mobile devices. In direct sunlight your SunnyBAG will generate 1min longer talk time for your phone in just 3 seconds.

Sharing.

The SunnyBAG App displays your energy production while using solar systems and enables you to share your green activities with your community or your friends on Facebook. Get a lot of likes for your green activities and be a part of the world's largest decentralized solar-community.

We developed a technology to make your energy visible, the SunnyBAG SmartBattery. Let's sum up the specs again:

  • 37.000 mWh capacity (10.000mAh x 3,7V), 
  • 2 x strong 2,4A USB-outputs for charging
  • Bluetooth 4.1 Low-Energy
  • a convenient size of 10,5 x 6,5 x 2,25 cm 
  • controlled with SunnyBAG App (Android and iOS) for a 
  • variety of useful functions.

To understand more about all single SmartBattery components, watch our SmartBattery parts above. The high quality aluminium case is packed with 3 x Li-Ion Battery cells (Type 18650). This is the same cell type the current Tesla Model S is using for charging. The communication to the smartphone is over Bluetooth connection to our SunnyBAG App which will be available on Android and iOS. It will enable a variety of useful functions that can be controlled from the distance over the Smart Button. To charge two devices in parallel, we have designed two strong USB ports (2,4 Ampere each).

One fully charged SmartBattery has enough juice to fully charge 4-6 smartphones. Because of the USB-port you will be able to charge thousands of other USB-devices like tablets, smartphones, action cams, digital cameras, game consoles, GPS devices, mp3-player, iPods, head torches etc. 

The SunnyBAG SmartBattery can be charged with a standard outlet, but it is more sustainable to charge it with one of our SunnyBAG systems. If you charge it with our SunnyBAG, it will take you between 8-10 hours in direct sunlight to charge one full SmartBattery.

 The SunnyBAG EXPLORER solar backpack offers the possibility of mobile energy supply in nearly every situation in your life. The volume of 25 liter, size of 42 x 32 x 22 cm and design of the solar backpack offers enough storage for all your daily life stuff. An integrated laptop case protects your notebook, up to a size of 17". No matter if in your spare time or during your business trip - the SunnyBAG EXPLORER solar backpack is your ideal companion.

The most innovative function is the integrated solar off grid system at the front of the SunnyBAG EXPLORER 2 solar backpack, which enables you to to zip-off the whole solar power system and power-management for easily fixing it on any other bag or your favorite backpack. Such an easy way to create your own solar SunnyBAG!

Charge your mobile devices with the help of the sun. The SunnyBAG EXPLORER solar backpack comes with a 5 Volt USB output and keeps you mobile and independent!

SunnyBAG LEAF - "the lightest, most flexible outdoor solar system in the world" for outdoor lovers and everybody who wants to use an independent electric power supply all around the world. Whatever you are going to do - hiking, climbing, tours, cycling, golfing, camping or at festivals - the SunnyBAG OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE bundle offers a flexible solar panel that weights only 180 gramm, less than a banana, in addition to the SmartBattery and SunnyBAG App you will get.

This solar system of 24,5 x 29 x 0,1 cm is virtually indestructible due to the robust material. It has a scratch- and impact resistant surface and holds even in cold weather, rain, snow and wind. Smartphones, tablets, videos and digital cameras, headlamps and other mobile devices can be charged by using solar energy. 

As an additional highlight of the SunnyBAG LEAF a fastening system is included which allows the application to 99% of all popular backpacks. Not only backpacks can be spiced up with this lightweight solar panel - also bags and tents can generate electricity. 

The Austrian Alpine Club tested SunnyBAG's product innovation in advance and came to the following conclusion: "For people who need power on the go, a very practical, lightweight and well-executed way". 

Thanks to the sophisticated fastening system, robustness and practical format the SunnyBAG LEAF is one of the most versatile and lightest flexible solar chargers

The OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE bundle gives you unlimited freedom for all sports and leisure activities and security in areas without electricity.

Our SunnyBAG BUSINESS CLASS models are made from high-grade vegetable tanned calfskin. We guarantee highest standards for the quality of our materials and components. With your new SunnyBAG Business model you will never again have to face an empty mobile phone battery in a meeting or on a business trip. As you charge your mobile phone with the SunnyBAG BUSINESS CLASS there is no need to worry about adapters for electric sockets when travelling.

The BUSINESS CLASS bundle comes with a SunnyBAG Business Class solar leather bag in brandy or black, our SmartBattery and SunnyBAG App. Take the Business Class to your next business trip.

The BUSINESS CLASS with the size of 44x33x8 cm offers an attachable and adjustable shoulder strap, carrying handle, concealed trolley holder, a separate laptop compartment and a separate leather compartment for your smartphone. Be the most innovative participant in your next business meeting and produce your own energy on the go.

 Additional stretch goals will be added during our campaign.

5 years experience are worth it! 

SunnyBAG has been cooperating with domestic Universities and external partners for years to cumulate expertise in the development of our SmartBattery which can be connected to the SunnyBAG App. In the last months Stefan Ponsold visited several production sites and spoke to different experts to make our invention even more special.

In August 2015 our product development manager Alexander finished the second prototype and we are excited to start our Kickstarter campaign in December with our best invention ever with a stretch goal of min. € 10.000.

Please help us to make the SunnyBAG SmartBattery reality and join our green community!

SunnyBAG was launched by Stefan Ponsold in Graz, Austria with the idea of creating solar bags for Doctors Without Borders with sophisticated design which had never been launched before. Since 2010 we develop and produce solar-bags and backpacks to charge smartphones, tablets and wearables on the go - which are environmentally friendly. In this field we're the #1 in Europe with +600 points of sale and great cooperation projects. We have also funded 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 SunnyBAG backers. Eventual weaknesses were eliminated by further developing our SmartBattery and by updating our SunnyBAG App. However, component delays and unexpected shortage can happen. Therefore delivery time is always difficult to estimate. If delivery time should be longer due to the described reasons above, we will inform you and do our best to solve the problem. Please also be aware that we can't accept changes in names or delivery addresses after your address was confirmed after the campaign ends.

What is more, we want to inform you that customs and taxes are not included in the price. Depending to your home country you might have to fill in a customs declaration and pay customs and taxes before you get your SmartBattery. We can't cover any compensation claims that arise due to your personal effort while handling these issues and thank you for your understanding.

Prices in USD, AUD and GBP were calculated according to the exchange rate of the European Central Bank Dec, 8, 2015.(https://sdw.ecb.europa.eu/curConverter.do…) Please note that prices in USD, AUD or GBP are only stated for your orientation. Due to different exchange rates and payment methods the final price may vary. Please use our prices in EUR to calculate the price in your home country.

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