Eclipse Nova Solar bag
Amateur photographers who need their batteries kept fresh might be interested in the Nova Solar Camera Bag, an Eclipse product with a solar panel mounted on the lid. Users connect the panel to a third-party 12V auto adapter, and from there to devices like battery chargers and cellphones. The panel remains active as you walk around. The inside of the bag has room for an SLR body, three lenses, and small accessories. Removable dividers let you customize space to your needs. The bag is being sold at Eclipse's website for $150.
