Solar PV Bags
Alex Steffen, 7 Apr 04

More toys: bags with solar panels on the outside, which will recharge your mobile as you run around. I want.

"The bags and cases have a built-in flexible, plastic photovoltaic cell on the outside to convert solar to electrical energy, which then runs to a plug inside the bag.

"A variety of adapters connect the plug to different brands of mobile phone, electronic diaries, personal devices and laptops.

"The bags weigh about the same as a normal bag, and although electronic devices will charge quickest when left in direct sunlight, they will charge anywhere there is light, McKelvey said.

"A mobile phone, which usually takes an hour to fully charge on a standard charger, may take four hours with solar power. But this could be done while walking, in the car or just leaving the bag by the window, McKelvey said."
