Eco-friendly iPhone case
You canâ€™t say I didnâ€™t warn you about the abundance of eco-friendly products that will soon be available on the market, shooting up just like mushrooms. Itâ€™s a good thing, if you think about it, but it would have been better if the green invasion had been based on strong beliefs. Irrelevant, some might say. The important thing is that people are conscious about their behavior as far as the environment is concerned. True.
That is why a truly praiseworthy fact is the release of a solar powered casing, especially designed for the iPhone, created and developed by Solar Arcadia. If youâ€™re curious about this new apparition, let me tell you that the case is nothing but a standard Lithium-ion battery pack that is equipped with a solar panel. The solar panel doubles as a flip cover for you Apple device. If the case wasnâ€™t made of leather, you could easily call this solar case a genuine green idea.
In addition, thereâ€™s a LED status indicator that is meant to give you the information you need concerning the capacity of the caseâ€™s battery pack when you have it charged or discharged. More than that, it is said that when the full Lithium-ion battery pack is included, it helps the empty iPhone battery to be fully recharged in approximately three hours. When, on the other hand, the battery pack is empty, you have the possibility to set the case to direct charge mode. This means that the iPhone will recharge straight from the almighty sun. The only disadvantage is that it will take you somewhere around 12 hours to fully charge your iPhone battery.
This eco-friendly iPhone case is available in two models, the SideFlip and the Leather Flip, and itâ€™s commercialized under a price of $45.95.
