As fantastic as mobile phones have become, smartphones today have yet to catch up on a feature that old cell phones have; battery life. Remember the pre-iPhone days where the batteries on cell phones can last on days on end without the need to plug it in? Due to the power hungry processors and software on smartphones today, it is become a norm for a smartphone to last for just one day off the grid. We are looking forward for the day where smartphones can last for a couple of days on one charge.
Till that days come, we would have to content ourselves with battery casings. Battery cases are essentially smartphone covers that comes with built-in batteries to charge the phone, giving the phone extra battery life. Depending on the casing’s battery capacity, this can provide an additional 50% to 100% battery life to your device. Even better still, if you are traveling to a place with limited electricity supply or just can’t get enough battery juice, you can get yourself an iPhone Solar casing. Solar cases usually don’t directly charge your iPhone with the built-in solar panel, but rather charge the built-in battery in the casing itself. The power in the casing battery would in turn charge your phone whenever needed. The capability for your battery casing itself to charge itself with solar power further extends the duration that you phone can stay away from a power socket. Here is list of excellent iPhone solar cases that we have found in the market.
Firenew Iphone External Solar Battery Charger Case by iCellTec
If extra battery power is all that matters to you, then this casing might the perfect one for you. It packs in a 2400 mAH lithium-ion battery that can provide up to 6.75 hours of extra talk time and 400 hours of standby time for your iPhone. On top of that there is a solar panel on the back that charges the case’s battery. The solar panel works even with indoor lighting but to take note that the cases’ battery takes longer to charge this way compared to when plugged into a power source. The speed that the solar panel charges the casing’s battery would highly depend on intensity of the light source. The battery charges much faster under direct sunlight as opposed to indoor lighting.
EnerPlex iPhone Solar Charger by Ascent Solar Technologies
If the previous casing proves to be too bulky, you consider this EnerPlex solar casing instead. Measuring in at just 14mm in thickness, it is one of the slimmest solar casings in the market. This slim profile is made possible partly due to its smaller 1400 mAH battery capacity. The battery in the casing can provide up to an additional 170 hours of standby time, 5.6 hours of video playback and 19 hours of audio playback. It is also relatively light. Weighing in at 73 grams. This model is excellent for those who are more fashion or style-conscious.
