Soljaro Solar Purse: I've Got the Power!

Soljaro Solar Purse: I've Got the Power!

I need to see this purse in real-life form before I can pass judgment, but let me offer up my two cents from what I know so far. News has arrived that by the end of this year, for around $300 to $400, you can purchase a handbag that not only stows your goods but also charges your beloved gadgets.

The Soljaro Power Purse was created by mechanical engineering student Joe Hynek and works by charging up the purse's solar panels whenever you're in the sun. The bag is said to need about two hours of full sunlight to charge a cell phone, while a fully-charged battery can last up to a month. And it was designed in such a way that you can easily sit it in your window at work to charge up!

i saw that there was a designer who had this same thing - so i'm not surprised that there's really going to be something on the market that will charge your goods. i think that in some way it's a good idea- but it may be taking things a bit too far

at least it looks snazzy.

Def sounds like a cool idea, but ditto on the question above and how pretty can they really make this bag? Still, it's a pretty neat idea

My cosmetics are pricey. Are my goods going to be safe from the sun's rays that are used to charge this bag or will they melt and/or go bad faster?
