Phorce Smart Bag Charges Laptops and Phones on the Go

This awesome smart bag is your all-around gadget charger on the go. Phorce recently launched its Kickstarter campaign for this stellar smart bag to push through. And you need to see what’s in store for you.

Phorce smart bag is not your ordinary laptop bag. It’s an elegant gadget bag that will protect, carry and charge your laptop or phone. Its chic design give you the option to turn it from a messenger bag to backpack and warns you via iOS or Android app when you forget to bring it (who would forget such a big bag, anyway?). You can also carry the bag over your shoulders.


This stellar bag was dubbed as the world’s first smart bag according to its designers – serial entrepreneur Kauffman Foundation scholar Marijn Berk and case designer James Jeffrey. This bag is your one-stop solution for battery shortage.

You don’t have to worry about it anymore. Thanks to these creatives, technology is much convenient and engaging. There are no more excuses for us.

Use it for your Macbook Air, and you’ve got an extra seven hours of computing. Or, charge up to three USB devices — your phone, speakers, or tablet — simultaneously. Phorce can charge your iPhone 5 over eight times — wow — or your Samsung Galaxy S III about six times.

This smart gadget bag uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with your iOS smartphone to notify you how much power your device got and how many times it can recharge various devices and intuitively reminds you that it also needs to charge itself.

The designers Berk and Jeffrey need backers to raise $150,000 for this project to materialized through the Kickstarter campaign.

This smart gadget bag costs $349 in retail and for Kickstarter supporters, it will only cost them $219.

The specs include:

  • 54 Wh Battery capacity
  • 3 USB charging ports
  • Bluetooth
  • Phorce app (iOS & Android).
  • Weight:  3.7 lbs / 1.7 kg
  • Dimensions:  W x D x D – 18 x 12 x 4 inch (+240 cubic inches when expanded)
  • Padded laptop pocket fits most laptops up to 14-inch, and all MacBooks up to 15-inch.
  • Includes high-speed compact wall charger that fully charges Phorce in 4 hours

The bag is a bit pricey, but I believe the price is worth considering the features and specs.

What do you think?
