How does the Backpack Work?
There is a special Social Fabric which is stitched on the front of the bag. Electricity is generated from sunlight using this Solar Fabric. The electricity generation will vary with the sunlight condition. Brighter the sunlight, better is the generation. A battery in the backpack, stores the energy. The Solar Fabric used is light and flexible and the bags are also light and compact. This makes the Lumos bags light in weight.
Since the backpacks are solar powered, they work best when they get direct sunlight on the Solar Fabric. However, if there is a natural light, then also the backpacks will work. They will work even on cloudy days. The backup will vary with the lighting conditions.
The solar backpack can charge cycle lights, GPS devices, tablets, phones and other devices which have USB ports. On an average, you can use your smartphone for two hours, for every one hour exposure to sunlight.
Features of the Backpack
The backpack is designed to be aerodynamic and has different features apart from the solar fabric at the front. There are cross-straps which will distribute the weight evenly on your shoulders and back. The straps are also perforated which will keep you from getting all sweaty. There are reflectors on the front of the bag which can provide greater visibility and road safety. You will not get lost as your GPS will always remain active.
