With all the talk about charging phones and the like I just saw this new product....looks like they offer a full bag and the solar panel kit also...

Pretty cool....looks like charges its own battery and then can be used to charge other items later. I will let the experts chime in about the specifics regarding power output.

"It is recommended to charge the battery for 5-6 hours before travel"

 

This will be absolutely perfect for those riders who also have to charge their Bluetooth headsets for a similar amount of time before travelling.

 

....but is doesn't really match up to turning on the ignition and going, does it?

 

Overall it seems a plausible attempt after everyone else has already patented their solution.

I fail to see the benefits of a solar tankbag. Motorcycles have these wonderful items called batteries that get charged by a magic device called an alternator. If you want to charge something, plug it into the bike!

I added a marine cigarette outlet to the inside of my glovebox on my RT. With the proper adaptor it will charge anything I want it to.

Why would one prefer a solar charger to a powered SW Motech electric tank bag connection that fits on the fuel cap?

The person on the other thread is planning on parking their bike for a week at an event and not having access to AC power during that time. Could kill the battery if you keep charging stuff day after day....

 

I myself just use the power plug and an adapter but I rarely sit still for that long.
