Review: Powerbag Backpack Designed By FUL

Just in time for Comic Con, the guys at Powerbag sent us the 3000mAh Backpack by FUL! So of course we put it through it's paces at the Con.... and we were VERY happy!

Go on to our FUL review (Get it? FUL!)

I must first get this out of the way.... This is by far, the MOST comfortable backpack I have ever owned! From carrying my daily work gear, to full on Comic Con mode, this bag just felt great. Makes me wish they had a non powered version to carry along with this beast!

Now, back to the review!

As the name implies, this bag comes with a battery pack that can supply power to a variety of devices. A side pocket has cables to power you Apple, Mini USB, or Micro USB devices. This is great when you need to charge a small device, such as a phone, MP3 player, etc. In the front pocket, where the battery is located, you also have a standard sized USB port to power larger items, such as tablets (if compatible) or anything else!

Despite it's size, this backpack has TONS of space! Besides 2 roomy pockets, there is also a thin pocket in the read to hold up to a 16" laptop! To add on that, there is also a small pocket on the right strap, to hold what little item you want!
So, how about some specs? Straight from Powerbag's site!
Interior dimensions of compartments in bag:
  • Laptop - 18" x 10.5" x 1.5"
  • Tablet - 8.5" x 10" x .5"
Exterior dimensions:
  • 4.5" x 13.5" x 23"
  • Weight: 3.1 lbs
  • Dedicated tablet compartment
  • Holds up to a 16" laptop
  • Battery: 3000mAh Lithium Polymer, weight: 0.2 lbs
  • Input: 12VDC, 1.2A
  • Micro-USB, Mini-USB Output: 5VDC, 800mA combined
  • Apple Connector Output: 5VDC, 1A
  • USB Output: 5VDC, 1-2.1A
Not bad right?

So how did this bag do during the San Diego Comic Con? AWESOME!

In my bag was a Nintendo 3DS, Playstation Vita, Toshiba X400, Kodak Play Touch and my Nokia Lumia 900! With the exception of my Toshiba camera, everything was able to charge nicely! Most importantly, my Lumia always had a charge! For some reason, my Toshiba would start to charge, then stop. After 4 hours, the battery status was down a couple percent.

Now, 3000 mAh may not sound like much, which is about 2 charges of a standard smartphone, but Powerbag has you covered. The Deluxe Backpack is virtually identical, but comes with a 6000 mAh battery, so double the power for $30 more. Another option is to buy a larger capacity battery as well. Powerbag sells the 3000, 6000, and a monstrous 9000 mAh batteries as well, ranging from $40-$60!

There's not much else I can say other than BUY IT NOW! Seriously, we all have been in situations where our tech is in desparate need of power, and Powerbag solves the issue hands down!

Score?

Yes, 5 out of 5 Geegamons!
I just could not find fault in this product.
