Solar Powered Case for iPhone 3G

Please note that this product has now been discontinued and replaced with the iPhone Solar Power Sleeve. We’ve also got a great range of cases for the iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS:

I’m sure most iPhone 3G users will agree that the battery life on the iPhone 3G is pretty poor at best. I can just about manage a whole days usage if I turn off 3G, which defeats the whole purpose of having the phone.

To combat this power problem, we have just released a range of Solar Powered cases for the new iPhone 3G. As well as protecting your iPhone 3G from everyday knocks and scrapes these energy saving cases can charge your iPhone. Each case has its own in built 1500 mAh battery, can provide one full charge for your iPhone and will recharge itself through the solar panel mounted to the front of the case, or via Mini USB if you’re in a badly lit area.

The iPhone 3G Solar Cases are available in Black and White and are due into stock mid August 2008.

  1. Unfortunately this was out of our hands! Our suppliers pulled the plug on it and we’ve been unable to source them from anywhere else.

  2. I dont understand the logic of discontinuing the charger for the old iphone 3G. Surely as these devices get older more people will be interested in a solar charger as the battery life of the iphone starts to deteriorate.

  3. Okay, I go the case, and so far it’s pretty good. Yes it does fully charge the iPhone3G in less that 3 hours from a low battery. The solar part takes significantly longer to recharge the Li-battery, but it’s the best most convenient backup power source yet. The leather’s very nice, although stiff, and not real easy to extract the phone from the case. There’s no port to take pix with the camera, a minor issue. Overall just having that backup surpasses much of the drawbacks. Oh, and yes, it works with the iPod Touch, though the case is made for the thicker iPhone. It takes some getting used to, but it’s the best successful attempt I have found for iPhone Power… Power-to-the-iPhone
