Brands Killing it in The Making of Solar Panel Backpacks
It is no news that the use of backpacks is way past just for carrying items from one place to another. Companies are now coming up with creative ideas by which they use to make packs much more than they were meant to be. One of these introductions by these companies are solar panel backpacks and in this post, we are going to identify some brands dedicated to this line of work. If you don’t have a clear understanding of what these type of backpacks are you can check out what is a solar-powered backpack to have a clear understanding of what they are. A simple explanation is that they are packs equipped with thin-film solar cells or solar panels and batteries capable of converting the sun’s energy into electrical energy.
Most of the time some brands include batteries in their solar-enabled bags but other times these batteries have to be bought separately.
These companies that decided to produce these type of backpacks were inspired due to different reasons to start up their companies. One of the companies listed below actually got inspired to start up their company due to the fact that some beach-goers had a problem of the battery of their phones always running out while they were at the beach.
Another company was started due to the fact that the phone battery of the founder of the company ran out while he was visiting another country.
Whatever the reasons were that made these guys start up their companies we are very much thankful because they have been able to solve an issue that was a lot of problem for a lot of people.
Solar panel backpacks are not as common as regular packs, therefore, the companies producing these type of bags are not as much as those producing regular packs.
Below I have been able to identify some of these companies. Some of them are solely dedicated to producing solar panel backpacks while some others introduced it into their backpack collection.
ECEEN SOLAR BACKPACK
One very popular name I have recently noticed when it comes to solar panel backpacks is Eceen solar backpack. Their backpacks have been listed among the best solar backpacks on numerous occasions. This is definitely not a coincidence which is why I decided to list them first in this list of solar backpack brands.
Eceen is a textile and electronic developing and manufacturing company based in Guangdong China and they were established in 2007. They produce solar backpacks, solar charger, power supplies, and solar powered products.
In the year 2010 after some few years of studies and tests, they engineered a new way to construct bags and this idea was patented which led to the designing and developing of bigger solar panel products on backpacks.
Their backpacks had enough space to attach solar panels which is able to generate enough power to charge any kits outside.
The fact that their products are mainly solar-focused means that they are more suited for outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, biking, etc. Their packs are also suited for travels, schools and many lifestyle activities.
All of their products including their back bags carry at least a 1-year warranty and they own the designs and construction patents of all of their products.
For more information on their website please visit www.eceen.com
Another brand that appears to be very popular alongside Eceen solar bags is Voltaic Systems. They are also another brand that specializes in producing packs powered by the sun. Unlike Eceen which is an Asian company based in China, Voltaic is a portable solar power company based in Brooklyn, New York.
I actually like what these guys said in their about page. They actually said that when the latest phones are produced they just like everyone else heard over to stores to take a look and while most people are checking out the design of the phone they are on the lookout for its compatibility with their system and power requirement.
This is one of the reasons that has led to their production of some really great solar powered products.
Their solar panel backpacks are not exactly cheap but they are of really good quality and they get the most out of sunlight when making use of it to power their solar-enabled products including their solar-enabled backpacks.
Their solar panels are designed to last and they are built using rugged fabric and strong solar cells that can withstand the rigors of everyday use.
Their solar panels, cases, and bags come with a 2 years warranty that covers defects in materials and workmanship and their batteries are warranted for 1 year.
Eclipse Solar Gear
Another brand located in North America. Eclipse solar gear is an Innovus design Inc company brand located in north Austin, Texas. Their products are geared towards electronic users and outdoor activities.
The company was founded in the year 2003 and the starting up of the company was inspired while on vacation at the beach. According to their website, the inspiration which led to the formation of their company was from noticing beach-goers getting worried about the battery of their phones running out.
Just like Voltaic Systems backpacks, Eclipse solar gear backpacks are also pretty expensive. Most of their solar panel backpacks are over $100 and they are of really good quality.
For anyone that finds this expensive and still need a solar backpack, you can always try to create your own solar backpacks.
The solar panels used in creating their backpacks are weather sealed, flexible, light-weight, and durable.
Damages to a section of the panels they use in their designs does not shut the power off. Their solar bags are durable and ready to be used for any situation ranging from daily use to emergency situations.
If you visit some of the official pages of these listed brands you would notice that some of their solar panel backpacks are rather expensive just like beam backpacks. An alternative is in the creating your own solar-enabled backpack. The process is not as difficult as you might think.
As long as you are able to procure the required items you should be able to create it. I have been able to provide the guided steps for this and even provided a video that you can view to serve as a sought of guidance. To view this click the link below to be redirected to the post.
The introduction of solar panel backpacks by some brands has being a blessing in disguise to a lot of people as they have been able to keep their devices powered up while they are outside of their homes. Though some of these bags might be expensive, their use and efficiency cannot be denied.
Have you ever made use of a solar-enabled backpack or have you probably being able to make yourself one. I would really love to know because even with the guidance that I have provided some people are still not able to make one. If you have been able to make yourself one please I would like to know in the comment section below.
