If you're new here, you may first want to read Hello, the introductory page that contains details on what Netbook Era is all about or you may want to check out the netbook buying guide right away or you may simply want to subscribe to the RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

Now this is a smart idea and a wonderful accessory for your netbook: “Voltaic Systems announces the release of its new solar bag, the Generator. The bag produces enough solar power to fully charge a laptop from less than a day in the sun. The new Generator features a sleek, high-efficiency 15 Watt solar panel. In about five hours of full sunshine, the panel recharges a custom-designed battery pack, which efficiently captures and stores solar power until needed“.

Now some smartasses are going to say things in the lines of: “Why would I buy it if I live in the North Pole and I only get sunshine half an hour a day?”. Well, for the same reasons that the Swiss Navy has five submarines.
