Being on the road full time, we get to travel to some pretty far off places. We’ve found that the harder the place is to get to, the more satisfying it is to experience it. There’s something about getting away from the masses that is oddly satisfying.
But while getting off the grid, we also need a way to stay connected. We need a reliable energy source. Safety is of utmost importance when out in the middle of nowhere, so although phone service isn’t super reliable, we need our phones in case something goes wrong. Believe it or not, there aren’t a whole lot of power outlets in the desert. However, there is plenty of sun. So what better way to stay charged than to use the power of the sun?
On a recent trip to Death Valley National Park in California, we used our Packr Executives
to harness the energy of the sun in order to stay powered. Whether you’re going into a coffee shop to get work done, or heading into the vastness that is Death Valley, this pack has all the features you could possibly want. It has plenty of room for a 15” laptop, chargers, and other gadgets. It also makes for a great daypack, able to hold everything you’d need for a hike.
But the best feature on this thing is the solar panel on the front. The solar panel itself is small, flexible, and surprisingly durable. And it packs a punch. By simply attaching a Micro USB or Lightning cable to the USB slot found inside the front pouch, your device has a padded nook inside the pack to collect a charge while you’re on the trail. When you’re not on the go, lay the pack out in the sun and let it do all the work as you enjoy the scenery.
