The SoL Hybrid Power Pack for the iPhone is yet another item created to provide a serious solar charge for smartphones that is cleaner and sustainable. Solar panels on the back power the built-in battery in both outdoor and indoor light, which means that even if you’re not in the sun, your phone can still charge.
The built-in, extra-large battery holds triple the energy of a conventional phone battery, keeping an iPhone powered for what is said to be a decent amount of time (up to 16 hours of talk time). A priority charging system charges the phone first and the case second. During use, however, the case’s power is used first, and the phone’s is used last, making sure the phone stays operational as long as possible.
Besides being used for charging, the case can be kept on the phone full-time as a protective measure. It also includes an LED flashlight and comes with three screen-protectors, including a reflective one that can double as a mirror.
The SoL Hybrid Power Pack fits the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S and iPod Touch 2G and 3G and prices around $90.
