SolMate Solar Charger for iPhone

If the concept of infinite battery life excites you (and it should), you can’t ignore the SolMate Solar Charger case for iPhone – though to be fair it does not fully live up to this expectation we’ve just seeded. This machined aluminium case packs a 1600 mAh battery and is backed by a large solar cell covered in silicon-dioxide glass, efficiently generating power even in indirect light or indoors. The creators claim that in these unfavourable conditions the charge (in standby) will be maintained, while direct sunlight can maintain charge during a 3G call. It adds a bit of heft but sports an overall nice design.

Head over to Kickstarter to check it out – 100$.
