Recessionistas, even in this tight economy, you'll want to charge this bag. Voltaic Systems has incorporated mobile solar panels into a line of high-end bags, which might initially jolt your credit rating, but ultimately offset your electric bill. Voltaic produces funky, but functional items, like the Generator ($599), a laptop bag powerful enough to charge, you guessed it, a laptop or any other handheld electronics for up to 17 watts. Also, Voltaic's bags are made of recycled PET, aka soda bottles, a light and water-resistant alternative to nylon, which requires less energy to produce and ultimately carry.
