One of the biggest problems of road warriors, other than a consistent Internet connection everywhere, is the rapidly decreasing meter on their batteries.
Mobile devices, especially smartphones, are easier to deal with, but when you need to get work done, a laptop is your Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Unassumingly stylish, the HP Powerup Backpack stores a large 22,400 mAh 84 Wh battery pack that can keep even your laptop sufficiently juiced up when power outlets are as rare as a Mewtwo.
What the Powerup Backpack has that most of those don’t is HP’s blessing and brand.
You are carrying a rather big battery on your back, so there is also an implicit danger.
As mentioned, the battery inside the bag is rated at 22,400 mAh 84 Wh, which HP says is enough to charge most HP laptops up to one extra full life.
There are USB ports and cables for charging Android tablets and smartphones, from 3 to 10 times over, depending on their battery capacities.
Regarding design, the backpack has a few special tricks to keep charging both safe and convenient.
There is also a convenience hole for passing headphone cables through so you can still listen to tunes or podcasts while your laptop or tablet charges inside.
There is also a special pocket for the HP laptop’s charging brick so you can inconspicuously connect to a power outlet without even taking it out of the bag.
The biggest concern for the HP Powerup Backpack will be travel regulations, particularly on planes.
The price might not be much of a problem, as the backpack goes for $199.99 and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
