The AMPL Smart Backpack is not your run-of-the-mill backpack. It is a bag made for urban road warrior and it could easily be described as the lifeline of whatever gadgets you may have, be it smartphone, media player, tablet, or even laptop. Beyond its handsome outlook, it boasts an intelligent power management system with the option to charge up to a whopping six devices. Yup. You heard that right. We said six and that’s awful lot if you ask any gadget-toting person. But AMPL goes beyond just merely stuffing portable battery into the backpack; it integrates them into it and ensure that every pocket has access to a powered USB port. It is indeed the ultimate geek’s backpack and it doesn’t even look a tad geeky. We’d say that you could hit the boardroom with this anytime – even if you are in your favourite pinstripe three-piece suit.
Apart from providing your gadgets with the much needed juice, the bag also has sensors built into it, allowing you to monitor the power status, weather conditions, and it will even alert you if you have left the bag behind (at this point, you could really use some coffee. seriously). Another noteworthy feature is the modularity of the battery pack, allowing the battery to be removed if so desired. This means you could bring the battery pack along without the backpack and it also means power users will have the option to load it up with expansion battery packs to keep their gadgets ticking while on the road. And the best part is, it can recharge all the gadgets in the bag with one single power cable – thanks to the built-in pass-through charging solution.
