Timbuk2 has announced a series of bags that will carry your gear and keep it charged, too. The Power Series bags begin with two of Timbuk2’s best selling bags, the Commute Laptop Messenger and the Q Laptop Backpack, and add a dedicated pocket inside to hold the power pack. In addition to all the features you expect from a Timbuk2 bag, both bags are equipped with a Joey T1 charging unit (from Joey Energy) that can recharge most USB-chargable smartphones and tablets. The Joey T1 is TSA-compliant, and you should be able to leave it in its pocket while going through airport security. The Power Commute Laptop Messenger has a TSA-compliant laptop sleeve that fits up to a 15″ MacBook Pro. It’s available as shown (left) for $199. The Power Q Laptop Backpack can accommodate up to a 17″ laptop, and it’s also $199.
If you’d like a chance to win one of these bags, go to Timbuk2’s Facebook page between November 8 and November 14 to enter.
