SAN FRANCISCO (April 8, 2013) – Timbuk2, the original San Francisco bag company, announces the Power Commute Messenger has been named “the best gadget-charging bag” by Gizmodo after an in-depth review by their discerning editorial team.
Timbuk2 partnered with Joey® Energy in 2012 to offer the first series of purpose-built bags with a power supply to charge a variety of electronics while on the move. As a result of this collaboration, Timbuk2 unveiled two new bags – the Power Commute and Power Q.
“While there are a few ‘battery packs’ on the market, we chose Joey Energy because the design can be integrated into our bags all the while standing up to the punishment our consumers dish out. They are also a trusted manufacturer who has created a next generation ‘smart’ power source that is lightweight and charges different types of technology while on the go,” said Timbuk2 CEO Mike Wallenfels. “We’re honored to receive this distinction from Gizmodo, who is a trusted news source in the gadgets and electronics market.”
