You love your iPad; that’s only natural. You feel the urge to take it with you, to protect it from harm – and, of course, to feed it a healthy diet of renewable energy. As a consequence, the Mini L Solarbag from Element5 (which comes to us via Design Buzz) might be the iPad companion you’ve been looking for.
This bag features an efficient BluCell solar panel, as well as Element5’s eMicro-Battery, which was developed specifically to recharge smartphones and iPads. Fully charged, the eMicro holds enough juice to power your iPad for another five hours. Alternately, it can fully recharge your iPhone three times (more if the sun is actually shining while you’re charging).
But why, you ask, should I shell out the equivalent of 348 Swiss francs ($411) for a solar bag? Because this solar bag is handmade in Switzerland, and as such, will probably handle the test of time a little better than that cheap Chinese knockoff you’ve had your eye on.
Think of your iPad here.
