There are some new weapons in our arsenal of event coverage tools and they are the Powerbag Backpack and the Powerbag messenger bag. The Powerbag is the brain child of a Michigan based company called RFA brands and combines a fully functional backpack, messenger bag or sling blag with the convenience and power of a self contained charging system.
What we especially like about the Powerbag products is that the power portion is routed through the bag with cords already on board for a micro usb device, mini usb device and 30 pin apple/ipad device. In addition there is a regular usb port for plugging in even more devices. Now we’re not sure if it’s recommended but we’ve actually used a usb hub to power multiple phones in the Powerbag.
The Powerbag’s are stylish and functional. There are three battery packs available, a 3000mah, 6000mah and 9,000 mah battery. Not only is it functional, stylish and organized, there is a port on the bag itself to plug the powerbag’s charging cord in so you don’t have to worry about having a separate battery charger or pulling cords out of the bag just to charge it up.
More after the break
Using Powerbags technology you can charge 4 different devices at a time with even battery distribution (we’ve charged more but that’s on you). The on board, smart-charging system will automatically detect the connected devices in the bag and send the right amount of power to optimally charge each one.
