Typically for a lightweight backpack like this we will use something like Polyester 210D. The D denotes the denier, which means the fabric is made of yarns that weigh about 210 grammes per 900 meters of yarn. Ultimately the denier of fabric is completely up to you as the client. 

With over ten years experience manufacturing backpacks and bags in China, The Idea Lab should be your first choice. Where Chinese factories often fall short in terms of meeting expectations on quality, delivery time and service, as your partner here in China we work to ensure you get both a fair price and the standard you expect. This is why we should be your first choice in China for solar backpack manufacture. 


As the solar cell is manufactured in a separate factory to the backpack it is important that a thorough audit is completed for the partnered factory. Cells dealing with electronics and components need to be extremely clean and very well integrated, and the off shore manufacturing unit should represent that. A solar cell, or a photo-voltaic cell as its known in the industry is a small semi conductor, usually made from silicone which converts light into electricity. Solar cells are usually made from pure silicon or other crystalline compounds. 

For the solar charger pack attached to the backpack we use a small cell that typically creates around 5V or 6V. This is capable of charging anything that needs a USB, such as a phone or a tablet.


For quality control, The Idea Lab has full and transparent access to both the solar cell manufacturer and the backpack manufacturer. It is important to ensure that the backpack is made to the standard regarding stitching and waterproofing of fabric if required. It is also pertinent that the stock from the solar cell factory is checked and QC passed before it is delivered to the backpack factory for final assembly and packing. Should a problem arise with the quality of the solar cells after final assembly into the backpacks it will be very hard to rectify.
