14W Solar bag. Useful but expensive.

It looks like Voltaic will be releasing a 14w solar panel bag, a huge step up from their, largely useless, at least for UMPCs, 4W bad. I hope its not a typo as the three-panel setup look exactly the same as before.


If it really is 14W then I’m interested. Well almost. The design is a little on the ugly side and the price of $559 means I could actually buy a stack of spare Li-ion batteries that, charged, would run a UMPC or one of the new Menlow-based MIDS showing up at CES for a few weeks or more!

This story is from CNet and the author mention in the article that they will be running a story about solar laptops soon. That should be interesting and one to look out for.

Thanks to Matt for the tip.
