HP has unveiled a backpack that is capable of charging your laptop, tablet, as well as smartphone. Appropriately dubbed Powerup Backpack, the canvas bag has a 22,400mAh battery inside that the company claims provides a full charge to most HP laptops, charges a tablet up to three times, and a smartphone up to 10 times.
The Powerup Backpack also lets you control the order in which your devices charge. There's also a built-in heat sensor that monitors the temperature to make sure the bag doesn't get too hot. A side-pocket plug-in makes the backpack easy to recharge.
