RFA Brands has launched the Powerbag line at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Integrated into every Powerbag is an universal smart-charging system, which powers mobile devices that can be charged using a USB cable, including iPad, iPhone, iPod and most leading smartphones, MP3 players, tablets, eReaders, Bluetooth headsets and more, right in the bag.
Powerbag comes with a built-in, lightweight, rechargeable and removable battery for “charge on the go” capability (3000 mAh, 6000 mAh or 9000 mAh batteries available), says Ron Ferber, president of RFA Brands. Plug your Powerbag into any standard wall outlet with the included AC adapter to recharge the internal battery.
You can connect up to four mobile devices at a time using the included pre-routed connectors (one micro, one mini, one Apple) and one USB port inside every Powerbag. Keep devices connected or plug-in when you need more power.
The Powerbag smart-charging system will automatically detect the connected devices in the bag and send the right amount of power to optimally charge each one. When plugged in, Powerbag will charge all connected devices first and then charge its own battery. The Powerbag line-up includes:
° The Urban Collection — designed for the “young urbanite,” these sleek bags include special pockets for your tablet, cellphone and MP3 player. The collection will feature the Underground Backpack, Crosstown Messenger, and Rebel Backpack.
° Executive Collection — designed for the” professional that values form and function,” these bags are equipped with the latest in traveler conveniences like the TSA-friendly “Fly Flat” feature, as well as a larger battery for extended use. This collection will host the Business Class Pack backpack, the Instant Messenger, Rolling Office and Business Class Case.
° Fūl Collection — designed to appeal to a diverse set of shoppers and lifestyles “from students to seasoned business professionals on-the-go,” these bags house the charging system “disguised as the coolest bag you’ll ever use.” Bags in this collection include the Deluxe Backpack, Backpack, Sling, Tablet Messenger, Messenger and Wheeled Briefcase.
