PGA Show: G24 wants you to Go Green with solar golf bags
ORLANDO – Solar golf bags … it makes perfect sense! Heck, if I’m ever going to “Go Green,” now was the time as I wandered aimlessly around the exhibits after lunch Friday.
I literally stumbled into the G24 Innovations booth … and there it was. A good-looking golf bag with a solar panel built into it.
You can scoff, but I’m thinking this thing might work. You can discreetly plug in and charge your cell phone, GPS yardage device, iPod, Blackberry or whatever (connectors are available from G24).
It needs four hours of sunlight to fully charge, and battery life is three to four hours. Or, as Regina Dyer, G24s Director of Administration, told me, “Say you’ve got six holes left, the sun is going down and your cell phone is dying. You still have plenty of power to charge it.”
They’ve also got a portable charger that can attach to the bag for use in the car or elsewhere. The United Kingdom-based company already makes backpacks, solar lamps, computer bags and a hunting pack, and is making its first foray into golf.
If this thing really works, they might have me Going Green.
