iPhone 4 Receives a New Mobius Rechargeable Battery Case with Solar Panel

When it comes to solar panel or solar energy, Apple has long been considering the solar technology as one of source for charging their iOS devices. As Patently Apple reported on September 20, “Apple has won their second solar cell patent this year.” It is obvious from this report that Apple is thinking something big to further strengthen their market base. Furthermore, we have also come to know from reliable resources that Apple has also registered a domain ‘iPodsolar.com’ back in 2007.

So, until we wait for solar iPod to be released, there are certain other ways to charge our iOS devices from the sun. To say, one such device has been introduced by Eton in the form of Mobius NSP300B Rechargeable Battery Case with Solar Panel for the iPhone 4. This battery case features 1800 mAh rechargeable lithium, while NSP300B boasts a solar pack that draws energy from the sunlight and utilized it to charge your iDevice.

This is certainly a big as well as unique achievement by Eton which they first displayed at CES. If we talk about case, it is really stylish and perfectly complements the iPhone 4 body. The case has a weigh of about 3.4 oz and a Micro USB cable.

If we look at the power pack, it shows off an elegant LED indicator displaying the amount of charge that has been collected on the solar panel. A stand by switch is also present that enables you to gather solar energy without being drawn from the case’s charge.

The claims made by Eton suggest that the case will provide 25 minutes of talk time, 20 minutes of 3G data usage, 35 minutes of video playback and/or 145 minutes of audio playback when solar charged for one full hour, while a fully charged solar panel will give you 5 hours of talk time, 8 hours of 3G data usage, 8 hours of video playback and/or 32 hours of audio playback.

The Rechargeable Battery Case with Solar Panel is available on Amazon for $78.
