I'm a massive fan of portable batteries, reviewing countless models over the last year or so - but powered backpacks? That's where it's at. Josh Cross, based out of Salt Lake City in the US, has unveiled the GoPlug bags - power that moves with you.

Cross took to Kickstarter, offering up various bags and devices for tech users that are on the move. For the early bird pricing of $159 ($179 after) you can get the GoPlug Computer Bag that also comes with a Swag Pack. The GoPlug Computer Bag features a patent pending mobile outlet that packs 115V, 60Hz of power that is good to drive right up to 80W.

Inside, there is one 360-degree rotating AC outlet, two front-facing USB outlets to charge various smartphones and tablets, and a rechargeable 12V LiPo battery. The bag itself has organization parts galore, padded hip panel for added comfort, an adjustable shoulder strap and grab handle, and much, much more. There are other backpacks on offer on the Kickstarter page, as well as bags aimed at photographers.
