This very creative, eco-conscious high-tech handbag is covered with laminated solar panels made of thin-film photovoltaic cells, which absorb the sun’s rays and create electricity. The purse design incorporates six solar panels outside and two batteries tucked away inside its lining connected to a USB port, so that you can charge your small electronic gadgets that you carry around with you. Electronic gadgets such as cell phones, ipods, Blackberrys, etc. can be attached directly to the USB port, or by using an adaptor.
The stylish purse needs to be exposed to 2 hours of sunlight in order to fully charge a mobile phone battery. The purse’s fully charged battery can last for up to a month.
The Power Purse’s current price is about $300 (£150) and it is likely to be available for purchase by the end of 2008.
