New bags by PowerBag promise portable charging for multiple devices on the go, according to a report in the New York Times. The bags, which will start at $140, come with built-in batteries to charge multiple USB devices. Called “Fūl,” the charging system is said to be light enough not to weigh you down and powerful enough to charge almost any device including iPhones, tablets, ereaders, and Bluetooth devices – essentially anything powered with a USB cable. The Fūl system automatically senses which devices are plugged in, and will send even amounts of power to each device, ensuring everything gets its fair share of juice. To charge the bag, the user plugs it into the wall.
