The Phorce Pro is a briefcase that converts into a backpack or messenger bag. That in itself is not unique; we’ve seen numerous bags that have this ability to convert from one form to another. What sets the Phorce Pro apart from those bags is that it has a built in rechargeable 26,000 mAH lithium-ion battery that will keep your laptop (Mac or PC versions available) and up to two other gear charged on the go. It comes with a universal charging cable with 11 connectors (PC) MacBook charging cable (Mac) and a worldwide travel charger with 4 plugs (USA, EU, UK, Asia). Still not impressed? The bag also pairs with your iOS or Android smartphone via Bluetooth and a special app to allow you to see exactly how much power is left and how many times you can still charge your devices. It will even send a notification to your phone if you accidentally walk away and leave the bag. The Phorce Pro can expand to accommodate more gear as needed, slides over the telescopic handles of your trolley bag for easy transport and it’s water resistant too.

The Phorce Pro is available in red or black and is priced at $699 for the Mac version or $649 for the PC version. They can be ordered directly from Phorce.com and will ship at the end of September.

    Very clever and useful idea.

    The only thing I worry about is the charging cable for Mac looks like it has been cut off from a Apple-branded charging device. (Proprietary Mag-Safe plug.)

    Apple has a history of bringing legal action against companies that alter the complete Apple hardware.

    I hope this doesn’t happen to the Phorce. (Great name.)

    Expensive, but seems well worth it.

    $650 or $700 for a cloth bag with a battery inside. I can buy a nice bag and high power battery backup for half that price or even less. Way overpriced in my opinion.
