    This review is from: Powerbag Back Pack with Battery for Charging Smartphones, Tablets and eReaders, Black (RFAP-0123F) (Personal Computers)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    Summary: A very heavy duty backpack / book bag targeted to students, with much left to be desired in integration of the battery pack – the sum of parts is less than the whole.

    I went on a week long vacation in Jamaica recently and after returning was going to be a lot more critical of this backpack / battery combo, but then after some thinking, concluded that I’m probably not the target customer. The person who would benefit most from this combination is using the backpack to lug their books and stuff to class or work on a daily basis.

    The hook is that they’ve built in a 3000 mAH battery with cables to charge any portable devices to give you some extra life for phone calls when riding home on the train or sitting in a Starbucks flipping through your iPad. If you’re getting on a long flight, this isn’t going to do much at all for you. The external charge port means you plug in your backpack, rather than having to plug in a device and remember to put it in your backpack.

    So what’s my beef?

    1) Far more of a cool looking consumer backpack than something functional. Adjustable sternum strap is nice, but they prioritized this over a hip strap? Mesh shoulder straps nice but the back part does NOT have mesh – which means it really isn’t going to be very comfortable for carrying for long at all. As a student daypack for books, that’s fine, but I’d also want to be able to take it on a short hike now and then. Lots of padding and stiching which does nothing but make the bag heavier and bulkier.

    2) Padded laptop compartment…isn’t padded on the sides. They designed a really cool pocket for a laptop but the padding is ONLY on the large flat sides of the laptop, not on the sides and bottom where you really need it. FAIL.

    3) Proprietary battery – replacement / upgrade battery inserts cost several times more than compete external battery packs from other makers. Did Sony make this backpack?

    4) There’s a really nice slot for a tablet, but forget about charging it with the supplied cords – they’re too short and tied to the charging slot on the side – you’ll have to bring your own cord.

    5) 3000 mAH is good for phones, MP3 players and the like, useless for tablets. (Also see complaint #4.)

    6) Charger doesn’t deliver. Plugging in my HP Touchpad I went from only 12% to 23% charge. Had it been able to deliver it’s full 3000 mAH of electron goodness, it should have gone to 62%. BTW, this is less than the charge I was able to get from the 1000 mAH Belkin Portable Power Pack 1000 – for Tablet, Smartphone, and more

    7) Charging lights barely very visible. In the video you can very clearly see the blue status lights, however on mine, the white status lights shining through the heavy black nylon are *just* visible in side, and basically invisible outdoors.

    To recap – the backpack itself has some cool features but overall lacks the capability of offerings from companies like Case Logic, Jansport, Deuter,, etc. The battery pack performance is lacking and integration has limitations. I’d recommend getting a good backpack and separate battery pack.

    Here are a few battery packs – if you’re just charging a phone, 2000-3000 mAH is fine, for a tablet, 5000-7000 is better.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    When this arrived I was immediately impressed with how solidly constructed it is, with thick stitching and generous use of materials. Arm pads are well padded and a one hand carry handle is also present.

    The bag has 2 main pockets, one of which should accommodate any laptop (my 15 inch Macbook Pro fits easily) The other compartment has a zippered pouch which includes the removable rechargeable battery and pockets to hold an iPhone or iPod as well as a larger pocket for an iPad with a velcro closure with a hole in it to allow hookup for charging in the pocket. An iPad fits very snugly in the pocket – any case on the iPad must be removed first. Also included are a couple pockets for pens and some small pockets which could accommodate credit cards. Any devices charged within the pack need to be hooked up to the USB port on the battery assembly with cables which you supply. There is also an outer pocket with the charging cables already run to it which can be used to charge an iPhone or other cell phone in the outer pocket. Included are Apple 30 pin, micro USB, and mini USB cables.

    The battery itself is marked 7.4 V / 11.1 Wh (which I had assumed meant 11.1 watt-hours but I may be wrong on that) and can be removed and charged via the included charger or charged in place via the covered port on the back of the pack. That included charger is well designed with a flip out wall plug and case design to allow the cable to be wound around the unit. This is a very Apple-like touch which avoids messy loose cables.

    The button on the back of the pack can be pressed momentarily to check charge state of the battery and must be pressed for 2 full seconds to start charging a device. Battery state is indicated by a series of LEDs which illuminate through the backpack material and when they are off are invisible.

    Overall, I am very impressed with this backpack and would recommend it.

    A 16-Inch Computer Back Pack With Built-In Battery To Charge USB Devices, December 21, 2011

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    With so many portable devices that we have needing to be re-charged, FUL came up with the idea of the Powerbag Back Pack, which combines a computer back pack with a removable/swappable built-in battery.

    There is a regular USB 2.0 socket on the charger, located inside the front compartment, as well as three kinds of cables (micro USB, mini USB, and Apple 30-pin) that are pre-wired inside a zippered, small side pocket. The cables are not very long, probably designed that way to minimize entanglement. They are for charging small USB devices like cellphones, iPods, and MP3 players. The pocket is designed to hold them while they are being charged.

    For larger devices like the Apple iPad or Amazon Kindle Fire, you should use the USB port and the appropriate, self-provided cable to charge them.

    A proprietary 3000 mAh capacity rechargeable battery is provided with the Powerbag Back Pack. You can order additional batteries (@$40) at the maker’s website (wwwdotpowerbagdotcom). There are also 6000 mAh ($50) and 9000 mAh ($60) batteries available. The battery can output a maximum current of 2.8 Amps, so you can charge an iPad which requires 2.1 Amps and another USB device at the same time. Theoretically, you can charge up to four devices at the same time, but charging time will be longer, because the charging current is shared by the devices.

    What makes this bag special is the LED charging and battery state indicator embedded inside the fabric of the bag, and the battery power inlet on the bag that allows you to charge the built-in battery without taking the battery out of the bag. You can see what these look like by clicking customer pictures.

    To begin charging a device, you first connect the devices to the appropriate cable, then press the power button on the front of the Powerbag for 2 seconds, until the LED’s light up to indicate both the battery state and to commence charging. Pressing the power button again would turn off the charging process.

    Of course you can also buy a USB battery charger and put it in a back pack to achieve the same function. What Powerbag does is giving you a more integrated and MUCH more convenient package. I also like the availability of additional and higher capacity battery packs that can extend the time I am away from AC power.

    We don’t hunt, which is what these collars are made for, but we have four big dogs and like to do long forest hikes with them off lead. They’re great dogs and stay by our sides most of the time, but once in a while, they get distracted and disappear into the undergrowth to check out a stream. They are well trained and don’t chase wildlife and normally are perfect hikers, but they’re retrievers and sometimes they can’t resist the siren call of a stream. The oldest one has twice gone down steep slopes she wasn’t able to get her old hips back up again. She’s strong as on ox on a flat trail and can go downhill with the best of them, but she’s mostly a front paw drive dog now. The first time she disappeared, one of our other dogs showed us where she went to- we couldn’t find her on our own. The second time, we got a glimpse of her down the hill and were able to find her ourselves. With these collars, we won’t ever be trying to figure out where Kelty decided to check out the stream and hope for a glimpse of her or wait for the other dogs to to take us to her.
    The collars aren’t cheap, but considering what it costs to keep a dog, it’s a good investment. So far they have worked fantastic and we’ve had fun keeping track of how much further the young dogs walk up and down the trail around us. The collars are waterproof, and even after a long beach romp, there’s no leakage. I would imagine they are great for hunters, but they’re also good if you have a dog who mistakes itself for Magellan or other any other explorer.

    I previously had two dc 30 collars and they worked fine but could not find any more so I ordered the new dc 40 and I have had no problems with it. It works just as well as the dc 30 collars. The only difference is the collar is orange and made of rubber and the old ones are made of nylon. Also the charger is a bit different. I’m not sure which is best both have good points. The nylon seems to be a tougher material where as the rubber one is more flexible and the hunter orange is very easy to see in the woods. I will buy another one when the need arrives. Update: I have had this collar for a year now and have had no problems with it. I hunt a lot and use these collars on every dog. I have 3 dogs and getting another in 2 months. I will be ordering another of these collars since they have proven to be reliable. Also the rubber ones are better since the nylons ones are starting to come apart at the ends. If you have any doubts about this product because of the few bad reviews just notice that they are not amazon verified!

    Couldn’t ask for a better system. I have used the DC-40 every day since I got it and haven’t had a single problem. I’m constantly amazed at how well it works. All my hunting friends want one now. I got an extra collar when I ordered mine because when I go hunting with a friend they are usually the one that can’t find their dog or catch it when we do find it. I let a friend borrow it Saturday and it saved the day. The dog we put it on took off over 3 miles through thick woods that had no roads or trails. We were able to go straight to the dog. Never lost signal with my extented range antenna.
