An interesting new device is promising to juice up your devices while they are stored in a backpack. The AMP, which is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo, features an advanced portable charging system located in the bags fabric.
And with the companion app, users can even monitor and control charging without even needing to open the bag.
Heres the campaign video. Click here if you cant see it.
Users can charge up to six different USB devices at one time in the backpack. As for the bag itself, your items are protected thanks to a water-resistant coating and shock absorbers in the bag.
Right now, for an early-bird pledge of $225, you can reserve an AMPL Backpack. Delivery is estimated for September. If you move up to the $399 pledge level, youll receive the backpack and also a special battery than can recharge your laptop with a built-in inverter.
And so far, the backpack looks to be a hit. In less than two days, more than $84,000 has been pledged on a goal of $125,000.
The AMPL Backpack really sounds like a great product. For any on-the-go traveler, I can see how it could be a lifesaver. Weve covered many high-quality backpacks that cost more than $225 with no charging capability, so this is a steal. Even though Im not a big traveler, Im seriously thinking about pledging.
