Don’t you hate it when you’re out on the town, Instagramming and Foursquaring with the best of them, and then the battery on your iPhone dies? That might not be a problem anymore, thanks to the Solacase for iPhone.
Yeah, it’s just another cell phone case with a solar panel on the back. The press release had some bold claims about how you’d never have to charge your iPhone again, but your mileage will certainly vary. It also means that you’ll need to dangle your iPhone out in the world for the solar panel to get its juice. I suppose that’s why it has a hole near the top.
It definitely looks a little on the bulky side, so that’s the tradeoff you’ll need to make for the convenience of some extra juice for your iPhone. The good news is that it’s compatible with all generations of iPhone and there’s even a built-in backup battery to store some extra power. The Solacase follows the same philosophy as the Solapad for iPad and the Solafire for the Kindle Fire.
The Solacase comes by way of Solawerks, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Domark International. It retails for $29.95 and comes in a variety of colors, including four glow in the dark varieties. Yes, becase you want to attract even more attention to the iPhone carelessly dangling from your messenger bag.
