Solar Charger and Case Now Available for iPhone 4

Now for those on-the-goers who risk running out of the juice needed to be smart communicators, the Eton Mobius has been released, a solar charger and phone case designed for the popular iPhone 4.

Solar charging case for iPhone 4

By its very nature, an era of mobility is generating and abundance of mobile solar charging options. This is particularly true when it comes to smart phones.

Now for those on-the-goers who risk running out of the juice needed to be smart communicators, the Eton Mobius has been released, a solar charger and phone case designed for the popular iPhone 4.

The attractive-looking Eton Mobius provides users with a phone case, battery and solar panel on the back. When the phone is inside the case, a 30-pin connector can draw power from the charged battery.

According to Earth Techling, when fully charged, the 1800mAh lithium ion battery provides five hours of talk time, or up to 32 hours of audio playback, Eton says. Depending on conditions, estimates have each hour of direct sunlight providing around 25 minutes of talk time, Eton writes.

The phone does not need to be in the case for the battery to charge. The case can be left in the sun while the phone is used elsewhere. Just slip the phone in when you need a little more juice. It will retain its charge if the power switch is left in the off position. An array of LEDs lets the user know that power is or is not being transferred to the phone.

If there isn’t any sun for solar charging, the battery can also be charged with a micro USB cable. The micro USB cable is not included with the package, however. On Amazon, the Mobius is available for $78.
