Kingsons introduces the Beam Backpack, a new innovative solution to mobile charging. Utilizing a flexible solar panel for its upper deck, the backpack allows charging from solar energy instead of traditional batteries.

The pack features the use of CIGS — short for Copper Indium Gallium Selenide — which is a thin solar cell capable of 9W of output. With testing, the Beam backpack was able to fully charge an iPhone X’s 2716mAh battery after 2.5 hours and can accept power even in indirect sunlight. Naturally, the luggage is capable of charging other USB devices as well, such as powerbanks and tablets. Besides the solar features, the Beam also incorporates multiple storage options within its pockets and compartments, RFID-block lining, an anti-theft buckle system and more. Lastly, the construction retains a water-repellent design.

The Beam solar backpack has already breached its $5,000 USD goal with more than $18,000 USD in backing funds on Kickstarter. The estimated delivery is scheduled for November 2018. In other news, Russian accessory maker Caviar created a solar-powered “iPhone X Tesla” that costs $4,000 USD.
