Tespack - (Not Luggage....Travelling Instruments)
Tespack combines renewable energy and technology with outdoor equipment; we provide outdoor enthusiasts with easy access to solar energy. Our current portfolio concentrates on solar backpacks
Mario Aguilera, the founder and the brains behind Tespack Ltd., used to be the co-director at an electronic designing company called Electriel that specialized in energy regulators. After leaving Electriel, he designed the Tespack concept from scratch; the designs and practicality are all the result of his input and work. The name Tespack was chosen in honor of the inventor Nikola Tesla.
Growing up in the army in Bolivia and belonging to a special forces unit in South America, Mario understood the importance of having portable electricity when on deployment. Staying true to his values, Mario decided to use solar energy to reduce the user’s carbon footprint.
He realized that the current outdoors market did not have a solution for portable solar energy in a practical, easy-to-use form. Using his military background, he designed a series of backpacks in order to be practical, durable, good-looking and appealing to a wide array of markets. Tespack entered the market in June of 2013 and was met with immense excitement from the market. Now, two months in, this excitement is spreading like a wildfire.
Our business & market situation
Tespack combines renewable energy and technology with outdoor equipment. Our solar backpacks provide outdoor enthusiasts with easy access to solar energy. This enables people to reduce their CO2 emissions and to save money by using portable off-grid electricity to meet their outdoor needs.
The current outdoors market accounts to almost 16.5 billion euros. Tespack’s products are targeteted primarily to outdoors and cycling markets and renewable energy suppliers.
We have finished developing and started commercializing five product lines. Each product line is the first of its kind in the world. All our products are design-protected and made in the European Union with high-quality fabrics. Our concept of one panel fitting several backpacks means that when you buy a backpack, you can use the panel in another backpack for a different discipline or sport. In addition to our current portfolio of solar backpacks, we are also continuously developing new exciting products. Our current product ranges are:
- three different types of solar backpacks for professional climbing
- the most lightweight solar backpacks in the world
- solar saddle bags for cycling
- solar fishing backpacks
- solar backpacks with elliptical and circular shapes integrated in the designs.
Tespack has been in development since January 2013. We entered the market on June 6th, only two months ago, by launching the “Go green, Go Solar, Go Tespack” campaign. In these two months we have already reached some exciting milestones, which we have detailed for you below.
