    Ok, so I know most of you probably think that solar powered chargers are a joke, but I recently bought this one off amazon that works great. If you are like me, and like to do the "enviornmentally" conscious thing, its perfect. It also fully charges in under 3 hours from just sunlight, and its completely solar powered. I never even have to use my other charger anymore.

    Anyways, I posted my review in a blog, so check it out and leave a comment please. This is by far the best accessory ive bought for my iPhone

    This black colored leather case comes with a built-in solar power cell on the front cover. If your iPhone runs out of battery power, all you need to do is to place this case, with iPhone plugged in, under the sun. With this, there are multiple ways to recharge the iPhone. It can be recharged directly with solar power or recharged with the built-in battery inside the case. Lastly, it is also possible to recharge with the old-goody USB power.

    According to the manufacturer, the iPhone can be fully recharged in 3 hours if using the built-in battery. Whereas, it will take approximately 12 hours to recharge the iPhone with solar power.

    The “Solar Powered Leather Case for iPhone 2G/3G” is sold at $48 and it comes with two options, flip-top or slide-open. The case adds about 85 grams to the telephone’s overall weight.

    I'm considering buying it, You think it was worth buying? Does it have to be out in the sun or is indoor lighting enough? Thanks in advance

    I think it was worth of buying. Because wherever I go it gives me full support during day. It is not necessary to bring it out in the sun. Just make sure it gets enough sunlight to be charged.

    I think the whole concept is really nice and environment friendly.The pupose of the phone being charged and most importantly its safe even from the young ones at home's point of you.
