Welcome back to Show and Tell, where I unbox cool, new tech for every area of your life—like the Sunnybag LEAF PRO. If you’re more hiking like I am, then you know you can’t find wall plugs in random trees in the forest. But that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your favorite tech accessories while nature walking or camping either. 

In this episode, we shed light on the Sunnybag LEAF PRO, a personal and flexible solar panel for adventurers. This flexible solar panel provides clean energy for all your travel necessities so you don’t have to completely unplug. Let’s soak up a little more info on this clean energy source.

A solar panel for the adventurer

Having a personal solar panel is cool, but the developers made sure this device is useful, too. Whether you hike, camp or travel, it’s always better to pack light. The Sunnybag LEAF PRO weighs less than one pound and is designed to fit on top of your backpack while you’re on the move. It uses a robust matrix cell layout with 80 individual panels with enough space in between to allow sufficient flexibility to hug the curve of a backpack. 

The packaging includes harness straps, suction cups and carabiners to help you attach the panel to backpacks, windows, trees, tents or whatever you can find. The outer material is nearly indestructible, with a scratch and impact-resistant surface. To make sure the customer feel safe, the company tests every panel and includes a certificate with every purchase. 

Using clean energy

The alternative solution to solar energy is charging power banks at home before taking a trip. But solar energy is cleaner, replenishable and can recharge the power banks themselves. In full sunshine, this device can charge your smartphone in two to three hours but you still can gather energy even in cloudy conditions. Providing a solid 7.5W of power, the USB-enabled solar panel outputs a charging current of up to 1.5 amps.

If you want to minimize your carbon footprint, the  Sunnybag LEAF PRO might be for you. This device won first place in the “Energy and Light” category at one of the world’s largest outdoor exhibitions in Munich, Germany. Let the sunshine in!

I will be back soon to unbox more tech, but until then, check out my previous Show and Tell episodes here.
