December 13, 2007 The proliferation of mobile devices in everyday life has given rise to a range of new technologies designed to keep portable hardware running when on the move - one such solution is solar powered bags. Like the recently reviewed Voltaic solar charging bags, the Juice Bags line of urban daypacks and the Soldius solar powered golf bag Taiwan based Nanomars line of solar bags utilizes the eco-friendly power of the sun to keep a range of mobile electronic devices charged up but also offers the option of charging from mains power.

The line of bags use a solar panel on the outside of the bag or backpack to convert solar energy to electricity, which is then stored in a high capacity 4,400mAh Samsung Li-ion battery which Nanomars says provides 2-3 times more power than standard mobile batteries. The battery can supply power to mobile devices at the same time as the solar panels are recharging it and for those people who find themselves in the Arctic Circle in winter the bag also offers the option of charging from mains power using the included AC adapter.

The bags are designed to charge a range of devices with several connectors included to fit Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Samsung and Siemens mobile phones, iPods, MP3 players, digital cameras, PDA’s and PSP’s.

The line of solar bags includes backpacks and carry bags and, for those that already have a bag, Nanomars offers their A707 Solar Travel Kit. The kit includes the same battery found in their line of bags and a solar panel that can be hooked onto the outside of your favorite bag.

The Nanomars A701 Solar Backpack and A706 Solar Bag are being offered to retailers for USD$68 per bag for 500 units, the A703 for USD$98 per 500 units and the A707 Solar Travel Kit priced at USD$60 per 500 units.
