April 13, 2011
Attention all iPhone addicts: if you've ever been stranded in the middle of a forest with zero battery power left, in desperate need of access to Twitter and a game (or ten) of Angry Birds, then Ralph Lauren has the answer to your problems. The new RLX men's collection has introduced a line of high-performance bags, one of which has a solar panel attached designed to charge any iPhone, iPad or iPod in a matter of hours when in direct sunlight.
The Solar Panel Backpack is made of a lightweight, seamless and water-resistant material with thick adjustable straps for comfort. The panel is attached to the back of the bag, and can generate up to a 3.45 watt-current when the sun is at full-strength. This combo of style and solar power will set you back a steep $800, but if you can't live without Angry Birds it might be worth the big bucks.
