Color Name: Powerbag Black Messenger Bag
I bought this bag at Best Buy as I was in a hurry to get a bag for my personal laptop prior to a recent vacation. I've got a leather laptop bag for my work laptop but wanted something a little lighter and newer. After taking it on a 2 week vacation I can say that the bag is attractive, well made, and the chargers work as advertised. I typically didn't need to charge my phone more than once at a time as I had access to power except on the plane, however, my guess is the charger could charge at least a couple times before it would be depleted. You simply plug the bag into the wall with the provided cord and lights on the bag tell you when the internal battery is charging and is charged full.

My problem with this bag is it could easily be so much better. Yes, as others said its got a lot of pockets, but they're all tiny!!! unless you need 15 little pockets to hold change, chicklets, etc, they are not all that useful. It would be great to have 1 big pocket on the back so you can have quick access to travel documents, reservations, etc. without having to open the bag. But there are no pockets bigger than a coin pocket outside the bag. And while the bag flap has a really cute little retractable clasp, I found it more of a frustration trying to dig the elastic clasp out of its sheath to open the bag to get at the inside of the bag. Again inside the bag there are no full size pockets except for the one to hold the laptop which is where I kept 8.5" x 11" documents. There is medium sized pouch attached to the laptop compartment divider, but that's it for pockets bigger than one that would hold a passport.

This bag is wonderful. My laptop, ipad, kindle fire, iphone, and work blackberry all fit with plenty of room for pens, business cards, cables, headphones, and more. This is a true messenger bag, so it comes with a waist strap that I'll make good use of when it warms up on my motorcycle. There are only two problems I've encountered with the bag. #1 is the pen loops in one of the pockets can't hold anything but a smaller pen. None of my pens will fit in the loops and there's plenty of places to put a pen elsewhere, but why put the loops there when there are other spots that would allow any pen to fit? The second is before you can use the bag you have to cut a cable tie inside the bag. I got the tie cut without cutting anything else, but I'm sure plenty of people will slip and cut the inside of their bag.

Color Name: Powerbag Black Messenger Bag
I've had this bag for almost a year and use it on my daily commute.
Nice to have when the battery on my kindle, touchpad, or phone gets low while I'm sitting on the train. Works as advertised in that regard. As other reviewers pointed out though, the power connectors are a little short. So I ended up ordering an extension cable for the micro USB connector. I'd also agree that the outside pockets on the bag have awkward shapes/sizes, but that hasn't really been a problem for me.

The only real problem I've had is with the shoulder strap. After about 10 months of daily use, the shoulder strap just broke apart and the bag fell to the ground while I was walking. (Before that happened, I was going to give a 5-star review.) The problem is the hardware has joints that allow it to rotate, but the parts are too small and grind down over time. Eventually the joint just comes apart -- and hopefully whatever you've got in your bag doesn't get damaged when it hits the ground.

I contacted customer service and the rep sent me a replacement shoulder strap at no charge. So no complaints there. Interestingly, the rep said she'd never heard of this problem before. After one day of using the new shoulder strap, I noticed the paint was already worn off in the same place it failed before. They should have made the joints larger and more rugged so they don't wear down so easily. I added some grease to the joint to hopefully help it last longer. If you don't do a lot of walking with this bag, you may never run into this problem. I problably average at least a mile per day with it.

Another problem with the strap is that the D-shaped rings on the bag tend to rotate out of position because the nylon loop has too much play in it.

This is a great idea in principle. I first saw powerbags in an airport shop, but they only had the tablet and backpack options. I really liked the tablet one, but it was too small to carry anything else, and I really needed something I could use for work. This bag will carry a standard laptop and maybe a 1 1/2" binder, so perfect, right?
Not so much... the other (billions of) pockets are too small to be of much good (unless you've got a LOT of loose change to carry around).

Color Name: Powerbag Black Messenger Bag
I bought this bag on Woot, so the price was right. Loved that it would provide a means to charge my phone while traveling. I have two big issues with the bag. 1. The pockets are pretty useless, as they are too small. I would prefer fewer and larger pockets. 2. The design of the strap is poor. The rings that are connected to the bag spin in the cloth loops and the bag shifts around too much.

In net, the bag spends most of the time in the closet, only coming out for international travel.
