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)

Loved my LifePack and wore it everywhere

I got my LifePack back in 2016 or maybe early 2017, and wore mine to bits because I loved it so much. During the hours of the day when I did not use it, my girlfriend would borrow it, because she loved it just as much as I did. It is so spacious, I always brought it when I needed to go grocery shopping. It was so practical with the big zipper on top, I brought it to lectures. It could fit any book and laptop, so I brought it to the library. It had so many smart compartments, I used it when travelling, and it was always easy to keep clean. In fact it as so endurable, it still holds together. It´s really built to last. It´s just recently gotten a whole where the backpack tends to hit the ground when I drop it off, it has lost a zipper handle and the straps are worn thin and soggy. But that´s not bad at all for a backpack I have been using every single day for five years, in all kinds of weather and conditions. I would carry anything around in that thing, and stuff it full, I am surprised it´s still in one piece. I wore it everywhere and it has travelled with me to more countries than I can remember. So, I can attest to the quality. The only thing I wasn´t always friends with was the lock, because it started to become a bit glitchy after a couple of year´s wear and tare, but as far as I was told, Solgaard had already improved the lock on the new generation LifePack when I started reporting issues with my lock. I also had some issues with the phone charger during the first year, but customer service were quick to send me a new one. Now I am looking for a new LifePack to replace the old and trusted one, but I am thinking of getting a ShoreTex to help the environment, or an Artemis, because they look so cool.

Super functional

I received my Lifepack Backpack about two weeks ago. Unfortunately the battery enclosed was defective. I reported the issue and it was replaced expeditiously. I absolutely LOVE the bag and the charging system works as advertised. It’s so convenient! I used it to charge my phone and laptop during my trip a couple days ago. This backpack is going everywhere with me moving forward.
