Solar iPad Case from Wireless NRG (Actually Powers Your iPad)

I just wrote about a solar-powered iPad case and keyboard from Logitech on Friday. But, apparently, Logitech isn’t the only one entering this market. Wireless NRG has also released a solar-powered iPad case — the KudoCase. However, one important difference is that the KudoCase actually powers your iPad, while the Logitech one only powers the keyboard.

“The case is made of a hard, biodegradable corn-based plastic and features solar panels on the front cover that generate energy from indoor and outdoor light sources,” Megan Treacy of TreeHugger notes. “The solar panels charge the case’s built-in battery, which in turn slowly trickles energy to your iPad, topping it off and letting it go up to 10 days before it needs to be recharged (based on two hours of use per day).”

And, the KudoCase can also charge other devices via its USB port (see above).

One more nifty feature: if you can’t find your iPad, you can just whistle and it will beep (of course, you have to know how to whistle for that).

The current price is $189.95 and the case comes in black, gray, green, pink, and blue. Although, currently, it seems that every color is out of stock.

What do you think? Are you sold? Going to buy yourself a KudoCase as soon as they are in stock again?
