Sakku: The Newest in Solar Sachels
This fall, whether you're heading back to school or just looking for a greener way to tote all your goodies, check out Sakku's solar messenger bags. Each is made from a sheet of recycled sailcloth sourced from around Switzerland (the company is based there). The panel is hefty at 5W, and charges a built-in battery pack that can provide 2-3 cell phone charges with 8 hours of the sun (you can "direct-charge" straight from sun to power your gadgets, or store the energy in the battery). Each bag is unique, and roomy enough to fit your laptop, files, gadgets, cosmetics, etc. Check it out via Sakku's site here.
