Ever felt the urge to camp out in the wilderness for an excessively long time but feared what would happen if you ran out of battery on your phone? The Ultimate Power Pack, designed by Luke Mastrangelo, is able to charge your phone, tablet or other electronic device through its in-built 4,000mAh solar charger. The bag directs stored energy from the Power Pack's solar panel, located at the top of the bag, to any device it is connected to.

Like any modern functional bag, the Power Pack is completely waterproof, shock-resistant, durable and has a sleek urban design. The bag is made from a polycarbonate frame and the skin is stretched over the frame, creating a tension that keeps it in shape for easy compartmentalization. The Power Pack also has sewn-in light switch and is 1/2 inches thick, but the neatest perk has to be the solar panel, which can be exposed by a flap. So long as it has access to sunlight, the Power Pack is essentially a portable battery pack.
