im going to look so cool
Assuming it actually works as advertised.
That's not exactly cool. It seriously takes away from the look of the phone
I would never....
Unless I lived on a boat. I bet it takes 48 hours to fully charge.
Hrm, you've got to have it out in the sun to charge the best. But if it is in the sun too long, it gets hot and overheats so you can't use it...
How many are brave enough to leave your phone unattended on a window sill or some where else in the sun and not worry about it being ripped off!
We'll all wait with you, okay ..... better now?
He, he...... Try leaving your phone in the direct sun. It will overheat in minutes!!
The obvious way to make this work is for the solar charger to be incorporated into a hat and then a connection to your phone. Just imagine how cool you would look going down the street with a hat covered in solar panels.
Can't solar objects work on a house light, like a lightbulb? I tried some of my solar objects, not leave them in the sun to charge, but in my room with my ceiling light and works flawlessly. Any takes?
as does every single case on the market...
as a person that hates cases, that looks pretty cool. if the solar pad was a little thinner, i would consider it.
they should've done something similar to what that company did with the magic mouse
That adds way too much bulk and is too ugly. I'll pass.
It doubles the talk time. Sydneyjunkie will be able to talk to his dealer for twice as long. I wonder how big the battery is.
I'll keep an eye out for you on the streets, Sydneyjunkie. You'll be hard to miss with that case.
It is a solar charger, yes. And it will charge with the sun, yes. But do you know at which rate? 10ma? 50ma? Do you know what efficiency is the current converter inside?
I've bought many many portable chargers, some of them solar powered, and let me tell you something, those things doesn't work. You either charge the battery with sun, or you charge your phone with the battery. But you can't charge your phone with the sun.
Anyone can stick a solar panel to a case with a battery and sell it for $120 and saying it will "virtually" double the iphone 4 battery life. but that is pure bs.
But it will work if you are willing to let your phone under the sun upside down for 3 days.
Is that all you care about? That you may look cool? I have my money on the nothing-will-help-you-there card. Especially if you think a solar panel on a phone will help you get there...
