Father's Day Gift Idea: Earth-Friendly Solar Backpack
Available in a range of styles from backpack to messenger, Voltaic's bags have lightweight, waterproof solar panels embedded on the back or side panels, and charge virtually all hand-held electronics. The top-of-the-line Generator bag is even powerful enough to charge a laptop.
Each bag also sports a removable battery pack that stores any surplus power generated, so when the sun goes down, dad can still power up.
Available at Voltaic Systems, from $199 to $499.
