While electronic gadgets have become part and parcel of the modern vacationer's must-have gear, the issue of power always comes up, especially for backpackers. Though there are outlets available in airports, restaurants, and hotels, leaving expensive toys in the open is obviously a big no-no.

But if you had the Trek Support backpack from design collaborative Quirky, charging your devices would be a snap. It has a built-in charging system and removeable, rechargeable battery that lasts up to seven hours, depending on the devices being charged; you simply plug the rip-stop nylon backpack into an outlet and let your gadgets juice up without having to remove them. Travelers in the U.S. will also be happy with the TSA-approved bag, which doesn't require you to take your notebook out at checkpoints, but rather just unzip the pack and lay it flat on the conveyor belt.

But grabbing one of these bags from the Quirky online store isn't a guaranteed thing. While you can put in your preorder at a special price of $130 (usually $150), a minimum quantity of orders must be submitted before the design goes into production and your credit card is charged. So buying this is taking a little gamble, but let's face it, there's nothing quite like the Trek currently available in stores.
