The endless search for power outlets motivates anyone with a smartphone or tablet to seek out new places to charge their devices. And when no power source is readily available, and your devices are running on empty, you probably wish you had a mobile battery of some sort. A new category of laptop bags has you covered, by including a rechargeable external battery that will keep your gear juiced on the go. We’ve rounded up the hottest new styles to help you find the one that best fits your needs.
Available in black or yellowish-green, The North Face Router Charged backpack does not come with a router, but it does provide an onboard Joey T1 water-resistant and rugged battery pack. The company claims its embedded power supply will be good for at least two full phone charges, and several days of partial charges, via its USB port. Protectively stored in the backpack, but still removable, the Joey reaches your mobile devices through various ports and pass-through holes in the backpack. It's even smart enough to know when to quit charging your device because it's full. The backpack itself features a checkpoint-friendly laptop/tablet sleeve that will fit a laptop measuring up to 17 inches. The padded and adjustable shoulder straps make it easy for all-day wear, as does the removable sternum strap. Best of all, The North Face offers a lifetime warranty.
