In our four years as a blog, we've seen just about every solar-powered gadget out there, including solar surfboards, solar suitcases and a solar helmet. So, when Ralph Lauren recently announced the release of a solar-powered backpack, we weren't exactly surprised.
The bag is part of the designer's RLX line, which offers buyers "exceptionally luxe lifestyle apparel and innovative athletic gear." It is perfect for me, in other words. Next time I'm exploring the Amazon, I can both (a) look great and, thanks to the backpack, (b) get enough juice from its 2.45-watt solar panel to charge my GPS device and iPod.
