Solar Luggage

[CNN Money] As the owner of Greenling Organic Delivery, a food service company based in Austin, I’m often out in the field – literally. Like many entrepreneurs, I spend most waking hours surgically attached to my phone, a T-Mobile Dash that I use mainly for voice calls and calendar tracking. I’m lost if it runs out of juice, so I was excited when FSB asked me to test solar-powered bags – small pieces of luggage with external solar panels that can charge small devices such as PDAs and cellphones. I tested all three bags by running my Dash until the battery was dead and then timing a full solar charge outside, taking note of sun and cloud conditions during each test.
