Solar bag targets green mobile users

The bag will have solar panels built in

A new green gadget has been unveiled that may interest those recycling mobile phones for environmental reasons.

G24 Innovations has revealed that it will utilise an existing product from Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne of Switzerland that combines a portable solar charger with a bag.

Put together using panels built in Cardiff, Wales and holdalls created by Hong Kong-listed manufacturer Mascotte Holdings, the end result is one the company hopes will be particularly successful with professionals.

G24 chief executive John Hartnett told the South China Morning Post that expanding the range will also mean that it can appeal to even more different types of customer.

"In the future, our product will become smaller and it will change from being around the electronic device to on it and eventually inside it, displacing plastics, springs and coils associated with batteries," he explained.

The product follows LG's revelation that the upcoming GD510 Pop will come with a solar panel that boasts up to two minutes and 15 seconds of talk time after a ten-minute session in daylight.
