New Fabric Charges Batteries for British Soldiers

clock April 4, 2012 00:11 by author Jeremy

Whether at home, or in a battlefield, keeping your battery charged remains a top priority. That's why Intelligent Textiles, with funding from the UK's Centre of Defence Enterprise, created uniforms made of "e-textiles", which are complex conductive fabrics. These uniforms eliminate all the pesky wires and the problems that come with them, and instead charge your batteries directly.

Asha Thompson, director of Intelligent Textiles, explains to the BBC News, "We've got the fabric integrated into the vest, into the shirt, into the helmet, the backpack, and into the glove and weapons platform." With this, power and data can be sent back and forth between different parts of the uniform. "We have a ringmain that allows us to power data wherever we want it to go. We can send power up to the helmet without it being tethered."

While the uniform will be used in field trials starting May, it may not see extensive use until 2014 or 2015. It makes one wonder though if this sort of technology will ever be used in non-army environments. Will we ever start selling smartphone-charging pants? We can only hope.

The Battery-Charging Backpack

For the more tech-savvy, device-wearing, constant-blog-updating consumer, Quirky has announced a product that you can not only use, but wear! Trek Support is a backpack that charges multiple devices at once. With 3 USB ports on the Gadget Dock, consumers can charge phones, MP3 players, iPods, cameras, and portable gaming systems. The backpack's integrated rechargeable battery can charge different devices for up to 7 hours.

To hold all these devices, the backpack is designed with numerous mesh pockets, with one laptop sleeve big enough to fit a 15" laptop. And besides the mesh pockets inside the backpack, there are extra mesh pockets on the straps, with a USB port there as well, in case you want to travel while listening to music and charging your device. Two zippered pockets located on the outside of the backpack can hold other items, like wallets.

Trek Device is made out of durable waterproof nylon, with the Gadget Dock and and laptop sleeve made of padded nylon.

And the cherry on top? TSA is allowing these bags to be used in their screening processes. When traveling with the Trek Support, you no longer have to take your laptop out of the backpack: just unzip it the backpack completely, place it on the conveyor belt, and you're good to go.

The only downside is, you can't buy this product directly right now. Quirky's presale will take your credit card and, once they've confirmed that enough units have been bought, the products will ship out. So if you want to order one and get it soon, spreading the news might be a good idea.

For those that prefer a traditional charger and not a whole backpack, ebatts.com sells chargers and batteries for numerous devices...and you won't have to carry a backpack to do it.
