Frequently Asked Questions

Solarbanks How they work, features, and compatibility

Q: How do I charge my devices with the powerbank?

A: Fully charge via a Micro USB cable by plugging into wall outlet with USB charging capacity. 2amp will charge in approximately six hours, 1amp will take over 10 hours. Press (1) Power button to check battery level. 5 LEDs = full battery. 1 = time to charge up! The upper large USB port will charge at 1a output, the lower USB port will charge at high speed 2.4a output.


Q: How long does it take to charge the powerbank?

A: Two hours of sunlight per day and a 50% top up to your phone means you’ll never need to plug your solarbank into a wall! One hour of sunlight = 25% charge for your smartphone


Q: How does the Solar power work?

A: The solar power generates power in sunlight best. However it can also generate power in daylight with non-direct sunlight. In ideal sunlight it will generate approximately 450mAh per hour. This means that 1 hour = 25% charge for your smartphone. Four hours will give the powerbank enough to give you a full charge on your phone. The solar panel function is meant to keep your powerbank topped up while you are on the go. The main charging function is by USB, and then the solar power keeps the level full depending how often you use it. With two hours of good light per day, and a 50% top up of your phone per day you won’t need to think about plugging it in very often at all.


Q: How many times will the powerbank charge my phone?

A: Five (5) full charges for your smartphone using zero solar power. Every four hours of sunlight means one extra charge for your phone.

Q: What is the capacity of the bag in litres?

A: The bag's capacity in litres is a little under 18 Litres. This is spread between the main workzone and lifezone, with the lifezone having 30% more space than the workzone.

Q: Can Lifepack fit a water bottle?

A: A water bottle can easily fit into the side pocket or be hooked onto the secure mounting point on the side of the bag.

Q: Is Lifepack and the Solarbank able to go through TSA?

A: We have traveled with this bag many times without any problems in the airport. TSA regulations allow for battery powered items to be carried with you in your carry on. All certifications will be passed to allow for safe travel and transport.

Q: How do I set the lock for the backpack?

A: The lock comes preset as 0-0-0, insert a pen or pin into the bottom part with the correct code and adjust the numbers to the code of your preference.(new version of Lifepack 2.0, Solgaard lock with hexagon shape)

Press and hold the lock when the correct code is entered, then reset while holding in the lock arm. When you release the lock with the new code that will become your new code. Automatically the lock is preset to 000.(old version of lock, Lifepack logo on lock)

The Lifepack Backpack is beyond amazing. so many pockets for different things. I love the space for the solar charged battery pack. Highly recommended!

I love these backpacks

I don't buy any other kinds of backpacks now because I feel short changed. The solar panel should be mandatory on every single backpack made. Although I think the spot it sits in the Lifepack could be altered so the angle could be adjusted to catch more direct sunlight. But it's an amazing feature. The hidden pockets are spot on clever. I love them because they really are quite cleverly placed. And the storage is fantastic. It might be good to add rfid protection though. But those two suggestions aside, this is without a doubt the best backpack I've ever owned and I've used everything from Jan sport and Herschel and Swiss Gear and Columbia and Camelbak and even Hermès and Louis Vuitton and they really can't beat the upcycled material the comfort the function or the appearance. Thanks life pack. My only real complaint is my boom box shorted out on me about a year after I got it. But i was a little rough with it so who knows. 6

Backpack is well designed, but battery needs work

Backpack is very pocket rich to keep personal items from flying all over the place. Just gotta check every pocket cause some of these little pockets are tall for small items! Battery was a bit disappointing. I haven't even use the battery once and it inflated on me. Thankfully customer service will assist with replacing the device. Only thing to note is that its via email and they do take 2-3 days to respond. Normally that will frustrate me quite a bit, but having them respond and providing a solution more than makes up for the long wait times.
