Ralph Lauren RLX Solar Backpack: Charge Your Gadgets, (Over)Charge Your Credit Card

Ralph Lauren just released a water-resistant backpack that has a solar panel in the back to charge-up your gadgets while you are walking around. The Ralph Lauren Solar Backpack is part of the RLX line, made in partnership with O-Range. Sounds and looks cool enough – only trouble is that it costs 800 bucks.

They don’t specify what kind of material is used, but from my experience, electricity and water don’t really mix well together so it will be interesting to find out what will happen when it rains on this backpack. For $800, they’ll probably have used something to insulate the electrical components from the elements.

The solar panel produces 3W of power, and it stores collected energy in a 2200mAh battery unit so that you can juice up your gizmos. In full sun, it takes about four hours to charge the battery pack. Honestly, for $800, I’ll keep my current backpack.
