If you aren't familiar with the company called Quirky it is an interesting firm. Quirky takes product ideas from users and then they build some of those products and share the money with the people that came up with the idea and those that help to design the product as the process goes along. One of the latest products to come from Quirky is a cool one called the Trek Support backpack.
The Trek Support backpack looks like a normal backpack, but it is designed to help you keep your gadgets charged up. The bag has an internal, removable battery that is rechargeable and gets power from an AC outlet. The bag is able to charge up to three gadgets at one time. The bag also has a laptop sleeve that is detachable and works with security scans at the airport so you don't have to take the notebook out of the bag.
The laptop sleeve will fit most 15-inch machines and uses Velcro to connect to the main compartment of the bag. The gadget dock can only charge three devices at once, but has pockets for four devices. The Trek Support bag is up for pre-sale right now and will cost $130. Quirky wants to build 1200 of the things and 35 of them have been ordered already.
