Cellphones, mp3 players, portable gaming devices, GPS units...many of us carry a combination of these items every day and occasionally face the dreaded flashing drained battery icon. Why not insure you're not left completely left without a power source while out and about with one of these solar charging bags...

The "Fusion" Messenger Bag: provides up up to 2.5 Watts of power, with a common 12V automotive charging adapter. Note, this cannot charge a laptop, despite being padded to accommodate one.

Juice Bag: available in black, charcoal grey, dark green, camo, red and yellow, this solar charging backpack looks ready for campus use.

Solar Beach Tote: What better place to take advantage of the sun than when you're at the beach? The larger surface of the tote provides up to 6.3 watts. You can even hook two of them up to double the charge up speed or use the solar panels separately from the bag.

Noon Totes and Satchels: solar bags with a fashionable design that looks more J. Crew and less Fry's Electronics. The Logan Satchel stores up solar energy with a lithium-ion battery pack, with a wall charging adaptor, 4 USB phone tips and cables for USB and the iPod.

Sakku Solar Bag: Made of recycled sailboat sales, the white swiss messenger bag can charge up fully in 2-3 hours. The Sakku Traveller delivers a maximum power of 5 watts and the Sakku Worker 2.5 watts.

If you're looking for a solar charger for your laptop, you're going to need something with a bit more surface area, like these foldout solar chargers taht can provide the 15-26 watts of power.
