Quirky Trek Support Keeps Your Batteries Charged on the Go
September 22nd, 2010
I bet that many geeks have the same issues when they travel that I do. The biggest problem is that I tend to travel with as many gadgets as I do clothing. It’s also really hard to keep the things charged up when I am on the road, and stuff always runs out of juice when I want to use it.
Help has arrived. Quirky has a cool new product in the works called the Trek Support. The thing is a backpack that can hold your gadgets and a notebook, but with an added bonus. The gadget section has pockets for four different items and the thing can charge three items at one time.
The notebook sleeve is removable and is held in place with Velcro. Inside the backpack is a battery that you charge from the AC outlet in your home or hotel. That battery charges the gadgets and is good for 7 hours depending on what you are charging. The laptop section will fit machines with up to a 15-inch screen.
As is the case with all Quirky products, it won’t be made until enough people decide to order one. If you’d like one, you can pre-order now for $130 (USD). As of the moment, they’ve taken orders for 58 out of 1200, so there’s a way to go before this thing becomes a reality, so head on over if you want to make it so.
