GoBe Solar Briefcase

Designed more for car camping than backcountry adventures, GoBe Solar Briefcase and Power Hub are a power-packing duo that can charge nearly any small electronic device. The briefcase-size solar unit charges the included storage unit in about 10 hours. The company claims it provides enough energy to power a laptop for up to six hours.

Opening the briefcase reveals a large array of solar photovoltaic panels that harvest sun energy and transfer it via cord to the hub. To power your phone, mp3 player, laptop, DVD player or other electronic device, the 9-pound hub has USB, AC and DC outlets.

You can pre-charge the 10.5-watt hub at home with a wall outlet in case it’s too cloudy to get a good solar charge at camp. The GoBe duo is currently available for $180, and the company plans to launch additional models in spring. www.gobesolar.com

Wow.. this is neat!! I love everything what comes to solar energy. This solar briefcase looks really nice. Maybe i should review this myself and post it on my blog (Which by the way is Solar Panel Plans )

I wonder if there is any problem with using three GoBe Solar Briefcase panels connected in parallel to get higher current when charging wet cell batteries. The three panels would be connected in parallel to a charge controller.
