We’ve been eagerly waiting the release of the ENERGI+ Backpack ever since that sunny day in Las Vegas at this past January’s CES. We covered TYLT’s booth and were really loving almost everything we saw. One of the biggest releases we saw coming from TYLT’s California headquarters was the ENERGI+ bag. We’ve used bags from competitors year after year, but what TYLT was planning on releasing seemed to have blown the rest out of the water.
Back in February, TYLT was finishing up their funding for the bag, unfortunately not really coming anywhere close to meeting the goal. 7 months later and they have found a way to manufacture the bag for mass consumption, which I am very thankful for! We’ve had some great luck with some other TYLT products we’ve been testing out and can’t wait to get our hands on the ENERGI+ backpack.
The backpack is equipped with the following features:
- Ten zippered pockets, five elastic pockets, key loop and pen holder
- Sunglass hard case pocket – hard on the outside, soft on the inside
- Dedicated fabric lined tablet pocket with easy access 3/4 zipper
- Trolley handle pass-thru – slide the bag onto your roller bag
- TSA checkpoint friendly design – no need to remove the laptop at the airport
- Accessory bag to manage all your tech extras
- Soft lined front pocket and tall pocket for easy access to important documents like passports or plane tickets
- Flat bottom design – keeps the backpack from falling over when placed on the ground or a table
- Side hydration sleeve for water bottles – hides away when you don’t need it
- Easy view compartments with screen fabric on several of the internal pockets
- Headphone carrying pocket at the hip for easy access
- Near Field Communication (NFC) tag built into the shoulder strap – programmable using the free Tagstand app
- Custom designed brushed metal zipper pulls
We were really impressed with how amazing this bag really is. Filled with 12 total pockets, able to stand upright and built with solid materials, TYLT has created the Nerds mobile dream. The user of the bag can route the charging cables to any one of 5 external pockets or two internal pockets, giving you the customization not seen from any of the other offerings out there. Filled with two 1Amp USB ports and one 2.1Amp USP port, charging your phones and tablet are a piece of cake. Users can even listen to music with a neatly located headphone pass-thru or charge phones while walking and talking on the phone. The 10,400mAh removable and rechargeable Lithium Ion battery gives you enough juice to charge that ol’ smartphone 4 times and brings you nifty tablet 1 full charge.
Out of everything we saw at CES, this was by far one of the top 5 items I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. This bag is so much. With so many pockets, so many different ways you can route the charging cables, it really is customizable more than any other ‘charging bag’ on the block. You would think that if a company was to put so much inside the bag that it would look like a piece of crap, but TYLT created a thing of beauty.
We’ll definitely be trying to get our hands on a review unit so we can give you the yay or nay to purchase it, but just looking at what it can do and how sexy it really is, you probably don’t need our approval. You can pick the bag up now on TYLT’s website for $199.99.
