Targus has announced its lineup for CES 2022, including a "Find My" equipped backpack and a USB-C hybrid/universal 4K Quad dock.

Travelers and commuters can keep track of their gear with Targus' new Cypress Hero Backpack. Constructed from 26 recycled plastic water bottles, it boasts Apple's Find My technology. Additionally, if users lose their iPhone and still have the Cypress Hero backpack with them, they can press a button to ping their iPhone. Once pinged, the iPhone will emit an audible signal, helping the user locate it.

The backpack comes with a replaceable battery that can be charged via USB and is highly integrated to prevent thieves from easily removing it.

The Cypress Hero Backpack will be available in late spring or early summer to purchase from Targus and is priced at $149.99.
