This smart HP backpack will charge your phone (up to 10 times), tablet, and laptop
HP recently announced a very cool "intelligent" backpack that includes a generous 22400 mAh battery, and can charge three types of devices at the same time: laptops (up to 17.3 inches), tablets (up to 3 times), and smartphones (up to 10 times). Compatible products include most HP laptops, Android phones and tablets (as long as they don't feature USB Type-C connectors, or proprietary charging methods), as well as the latest Apple iPhone and iPad models.

The new backpack, called HP Powerup Backpack, is smart because it comes with a built-in heat sensor that monitors its temperature and automatically adjusts it when needed, while also meeting security requirements for in-flight carry-ons. The product features durable canvas and straps, being able to resist wet weather (it also includes a raincoat, just in case it's really pouring outside).

And now the somewhat bad news: the HP Powerup Backpack costs $199.99 (so it's certainly not cheap), and won't be available before October 1. If you're interested, the backpack can already be pre-ordered on Amazon (check out the source link at the end of this article). You can see the Powerup Backpack in action in the official HP video embedded below.

A backpack that kind of resembles the HP Powerup was funded not long ago via Indiegogo. It would be cool if we'd had similar backpacks made by more companies (thus being able to charge a wider range of portable devices), wouldn't it?
