CES 2012: Power Bag’s 2012 Line

Our CES coverage continues as we check in with Ron Ferber the CEO of Power Bag. Power Bag is by far our favorite “accessory” of 2011. Finally someone has gotten the charging, and transporting solution down.

Ferber talks to us about the new exciting bags lined up for 2012 which streamline the power charging system even more and have easy access pockets for every type of mobile electronic possible.
