SOOT Electropack 2 Takes the Fantastic Original Concept and Makes It Even Better!

September 22nd - via:
If you’re like me, you love your electronics. You also hate the way the battery indicator gets smaller and smaller while you’re away from home or away from a charger. Personally, I don’t carry a charger with me unless I absolutely know I will need it. In the cases where I wasn’t prepared to be out for so long, I’m stuck and it’s not a good feeling. The SOOT Electropack 2 aims to solve that problem by taking the original concept, the Electropack, and improving on it to give us, the consumers, an even better product. (Read More)

Awesome Stuff: Rethinking The Backpack

September 28th - via:
As someone who is "on the go" all too frequently, I've been trying to perfect the idea of "my office is in my backpack" for a while (always getting closer and closer but not quite there...). For a while, however, I never put any thought into the backpack itself. I survived on a series of free backpacks picked up at various conferences, which came in varying sizes and levels of quality. A few years back I finally started asking around for ideas on good bags, and got a few recommendations for Swiss Army backpacks. (Read More)

The SOOT Electropack is a cool versatile bag, it´s like having 3 bags in-one, it can adapt to any type of activity. The fully transformable bag system is also able to charge your mobile devices for up to two weeks off the grid! The SOOT enables you to transform it into three distinct sizes, a mini-messenger, a commuter backpack, and a 34L carry-on. This conveniently allows users to break a full-size travel bag down into smaller “day bags” for shorter jaunts. (Read More)

Soot electropack: oersterke rugzak laadt je mobiele devices op

September 23rd - via:
De Soot Electropack is een zéér stevig rugzak, met een ingebouwde accu om je mobiele devices op te laden. De tas is gemaakt van zwaar vinyl en stevig nylon, waardoor hij praktisch waterdicht is (behalve als je hem echt onderdompelt in water). Óók interessant is dat de Soot uit een koerierstas en een rugzak bestaat: als je ze aan elkaar ritst, vormen ze een grote ‘backpack’! (Read More)

As our phone batteries dwindle it seems that our life is crumbing down around us. (Read More)
