The Lumos team is a combination of super geeky engineers and creative designers that love to cycle. While believing that improvement in cycling safety would maybe encourage more people to cycle. They have successfully delivered solar-powered cyclists backpacks – unPlug Solar BackPack and ThrillSeeker – across 16 countries over the last 3 years.
While these backpacks have integrated solar fabric ( not panels ) which make it flexible enough for riders to carry with them and charge all of their devices. Because the solar panels are meant to be outdoors they are designed to handle rain and dust. Which mean I can wear mine while I go 4-wheeling. While the charging power depends on how much sunlight you receive. The core function is to maintain the charge levels on your phone or provide a back up charge.
And it supports a standard USB 2.0 interface. Which this charges most gadgets, such as Mp3 players, phones, GPS or cycle lights. Made of PU-coated polyester with a flap based design to help keep rain rolling off the surface of your backpack. If closed properly it can handle up to 7 cms of rain. But you do receive a fluorescent green rain cover that can be used in heavier rains. It ships with a one year replacement warranty and the battery is designed to last up to 500 cycles. While the solar fabric is designed to last for 8 years.
Featuring adequate reflectors and cross straps for weight distribution. And it can also hold up to a 3L hydration bladder ( not included ) and has great stability. Clinging to the rider even during the roughest of trail rides.
For anyone in your family that loves to be outside. And still wants to stay connected I present to you Lumos’ ThrillSeeker. The world’s lightest solar backpack. Because the ThrillSeeker can tap all the solar energy they are getting without changing their natural behavior. While enabling them to spend their time outdoors without the fear of losing touch. Because they will still have access to safety devices, phones and GPS.
