What electronic devices will my bag charge?
The battery pack should be compatible with all charge cell phones, blackberries, PDA, Palms and iPods. The battery pack, however, will not charge the new iPhone G3 as a result of the phone’s software. A new battery capable of charging the iPhone G3 should be available in a few months.
If your device is not compatible with the tips provided just purchase it at your local electronic store for a minimal cost. We look forward to being able to offer a bag in the future that can charge your laptop.
How long will it take to charge the battery?
On a sunny day it will take about 6-8 hours, on a cloudy day it will take more time. The internal battery will store the solar energy for several days, so that you can charge your cell phone or iPod day or night. You can get a quick charge with just 30 minutes of sun. If need be, the battery will also wall charge.
How can I make sure I am collecting energy with my bag?
It’s simple, just expose the panel to the sun. Place it in your window at work or home, face the panel towards the sun at the cafe, or walk/bike around town with the panel exposed. Even on cloudy or rainy days, energy is collected through the UV light of the sun. The battery pack has a green charging light that will illuminate when it is receiving a charge. For initial use, it is important to charge your battery completely in order to maximize the charge by either using the wall adapter or the sun.
What type of light will charge my bag?
The solar panels have been developed to collect a charge from the sun. Indoor lights will not work.
Can the solar panel get wet?
Yes! The solar panel is completely water and weatherproofed, and will continue to work even if it wears with age. You will not be harmed if the solar panel gets wet.
What are the specs on the solar panel?
The output is 7.2 volts, 300 mA-400mA.
Can I take my solar bag through airport security?
Yes! We have traveled with our bags and even charged them in the window on the plane.
What if I buy a new iPod, Blackberry or cell phone?
More tips can be purchased at your local electronics store. You can also purchase tips online as www.cables4computer.com.
Will my electronic device(s) work with this handbag?
The bag will charge all cell phones, Ipods and Blackberrys, except for the new iPhone G3. We are expecting a new battery for this phone in a few months. Please ask us to keep you posted when this battery arrives if you are interested in a bag and have iPhone G3.
