I’ve been blogging about solar power for nearly three years. We’ve written about solar backpacks and solar purses. But let me tell you – I have never seen a solar powered handbag so attractive and stylish as this one.
Created by Diffus, the new solar handbag has…. can I say it… adorable photovoltaic (PV) cells adorning its exterior.
According to the Diffus blog, the company worked with Swiss embroidery company Forster Rohner and the Alexandra Institute to create a bag that uses solar panels as a key design element. One hundred small solar panels on the outside of the purse absorb UV light and convert it to usable power to recharge your cell phone or mP3 player right inside the handbag. When you open up the top, integrated fiber optics light up to help you locate items with ease.
The Diffus solar powered handbag is so stylish and practical, you may not ever carry another! It is sized to carry daily planners, keys, cell phones and other items you need while on the go.
The Diffus blog describes this amazing handbag:
“The shape of the bag resembles the story between the relationship between the sun and moon – between light source and enlightened. Therefore the shape mimics an eclipse where the moon – the enlightened – interfere or interact with the sun – the light source. The surface is embroidered with an integrated combination of normal embroidery and conductive embroidery that is able to convey the energy harvested for the solar sequins to the rechargeable battery.”
The designers of the Solar Handbag showcases use of efficient, textile-based solar cells. When the bag is exposed to UV light, it can generate 2 watts of solar power, which can easily charge one of your mobile devices, even on cloudy days.
