Review: Meet your new backpack, the TYLT Energi+ Backpack
TYLT’s Energi+ Backpack, as the company explains, is “a next-gen briefcase, backpack, and mobile charging station.” After using it for a couple of weeks, I can confirm 100% they are telling the truth. This juggernaut of a bag, packs a 10,400mAh battery , with three USB ports to plug in a variety of mobile devices. Everything is supplied with it, and this has more pockets and compartments you would ever need.
The quality of production that TYLT has provided for this bag is absolutely amazing. They have used some beautiful materials to make a total of 13 pockets, over 1450 inches of internal space, a trolley slot hidden in the backpack panel, a headphone carrying compartment, and a full length zipper pocket on the front of the bag.
I used the Engergi+ for a number of trips, going up to my nans for a couple of days, staying in london for a weekend, and to and from work. All these meant i had to charge on the go, keep everything secure and look cool.
I was able to take my Lenovo Laptop, my HTC M8, and Nexus 7, and still had enough room for clothing, papers, and to charge 2 devices at the same time.
At the top of the bag there is a pocket that is hardened to protect your sunglasses. I used this pocket for my M8, as it protects it thanks to its hardened surroundings. On the right is a pocket that contains a hydration pocket that will hold a bottle of drink. When not used, this pocket can be hidden inside the bag and zipped up.
I have to applaud TYLT for their amazing job with the routing of the internal cables. They have created the ability to route cables virtually anywhere in the bag. This means you can have multiple devices charging, in various pockets of the bag, without masses of cabling getting tangled up.
Opening up the back of the bag is easy, as the zips go all the way down. This makes it possible to completely open the bag to get your cable routing done perfectly. It took me a couple of tries to get the right cables in the right holes, but this was before I realised TYLT provides a “map” showing where each cable will appear.
After the first week I was hooked on this bag. It has everything I would ever need.
The Energi+ Backpack has the best of both worlds, the on-the-go techie needing to charge his devices, and just the guy going to work. It works on both levels. When traveling with a bag full of tech, you don’t want it hurting your back after wearing it for long periods of time. This bag has a serious amount of padding along the back, and even some on your shoulders, TYLT went heavy on the padding and it has paid off.
In the future I’d love to see a bigger version of the bag with a 20,000mAh battery and more area with multiple 2.1A or 2.5A ports. Maybe more as a travel bag, but would still be a big hit.
In my opinion TYLT has created the perfect portable battery. If you are in the market for a new bag, travel a lot, or use a large amount of smart devices, the TYLT Energi+ Backpack really is what you’re looking for.
It looks great, has more pockets than anyone would need and sections I am still discovering, and best of all, it fits really well on your back. I’ve walked around London for a whole day with this and I didn’t get any problems.
This may be my product of 2015, its thats good.
