10 Best Smart Laptop Backpacks with Charger 2022 | Review and Guide

We are living in the information era and as Samuel Johnson said “Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it.” Therefore, with the help of the internet(which can be easily accessed with our phones, laptops, notepads, tablets, etc.. we have no excuse whatsoever to acquiring knowledge.

Even though these gadgets are a game changer, they also have their flaws, a major one being, they don’t come with unlimited power supply. As such, you have to plug them to a power supply every now and then. This is not a major issue for people working from home or in an office. What about people who work on the go, the digital nomads(like myself)? This is where smart backpacks with chargers come in play.

Smart backpacks are equipped with cutting edge technology that an average work pack or an ordinary backpack for school just won’t hold up. Smart backpacks are not only so handy in terms of keeping your electronic devices charged even on the go but also provide top-notch security for your basic niceties inside.

Some of them are quite expensive. Like this YOREPEK Extra Large Smart Backpack. Nevertheless, you don’t need to spend that much. Personally, I use an extremely safe and relatively affordable one(listed below) and so far I’m impressed, to say the least. Not only have I thoroughly researched about the best smart laptop backpacks with charger by going through smart anti-theft backpacks forums, product reviews and manuals, I’ve also tested a few of these bad boys.

Before diving down to the reviews, here is a quick guide on how these smart packs work.

Best Smart Laptop Backpacks with Charger

1. Lifepack Solar Powered Anti-Theft Backpack – Personal Best

Introducing Lifepack Solar Powered Anti-Theft, my personal favorite laptop smart backpack and all day everyday choice. It’s one of the most unique smart backpacks and regarded as first of its kind. Here are the reasons why.


This versatile smart backpack is great for all kinds of activities out there. Two stylish colors to choose from, stealthy black for official use or its titanium grey for outdoor jobs while still looking cool.

Spacious and well compartmentalized

The smart backpack is spacious enough with a dedicated laptop compartment which can comfortably fit a 15-inch or a 17-inch laptop. 17-inch will fit, however, not in the laptop compartment.

The inside part is perfectly partitioned with easily accessible hidden pockets for storing vital documents like access cards(work id), passport, bus pass, etc… Keep it secret to keep it safe. Right?

Smart Aspect

Let talk power, LIFEPACK solar powered smart backpack has this amazing solar bank placed at the top back pocket which is easily accessible for charging by well-integrated cables in the fabric. This power bank can be removed to be charged via an outlet. Additionally, it has a speaker that can be used via a Bluetooth connection.


When security is your biggest concern, don’t dread, with Lifepack anti-theft smart backpack, you’re safe. It features a retractable cable firmly built to lock it on any secure object. This comes in handy when you are at the beach (or any other outdoor space), restaurants or even at work.

Also, as far as keeping your devices secure from breakage, it has an 8mm layer of foam surrounding that when dropped, your laptop, iPad, camera or other delicate devices couldn’t be safer.


This smart backpack features a super comfortable EVA padded back providing extra safety for your laptop, adequate ventilation and to ensure you don’t get back pains after an extended carry time. Additionally, it has padded and adjustable shoulder straps with a U-shaped upper area for proper weight distribution.

Extra Cautions

The base is made of a plastic water-proof and stain resistant outer layer. This means you can place it anywhere and easily wipe off any fluids afterward. If you fear your documents or general contents getting wet then you shouldn’t anymore, a rain cover at one of the base pockets will keep you calm even during harsh weather conditions.

Are you a bike rider and or the type of person who commutes home late on busy streets? If the answer is yes, the rain cover also has a reflective part that will keep you vividly seen by motorists and drivers in the night.
