New Timbuk2 Bag Juices Your Gadgets While You’re On The Move


If you’re an iDevice power-user and need a classically robust bag to haul all your junk, take note: Timbuk2 has just released the Power Series, two alternate versions of their best-selling Commute Laptop Messenger and Q Laptop Backpack, equipped with Joey batteries and special a pass-through for the charging cable.

The Power Q Laptop Backpack has a tricot-lined laptop sleeve, a lower stash pocket good for stowing the power brick and umpteen organizer compartments — and, of course, a Joey T1 battery, good for “two full recharges on most standard cellphones.” Same deal with the Power Commute Laptop Messenger, only in TSA-compliant courier form. Not sure if the Joey T1 has the 2-amp output necessary to charge an iPad.

Of course, with each bag priced at $199, you could always buy your own batteries and stick them in the original versions of the bags, which are about half the price of the Power versions.
