    Traveling around with a bag that charges your phone sounds incredible, right? Samsonite displayed this messenger bag that can charge up your BlackBerry Curve using energy from the sun. The back is equipped with a system that can charge the phone when exposed to direct sunlight for 4.5 hours. That may seem long, but remember, this bag is serious about saving energy. The bag can carry a notebook of 15.6 inches, though it cannot charge its battery. A 12V automotive charger adapter in the bag enables phones with a standard car charger to be attached and charged. The bag turns greener with the materials used to build it. The body of the bag is made out of recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET). This cool bag that uses sunlight to charge up your mobile phone can be yours for under $100 when it shows up in the market this spring.
