How’s the battery life in your new iPhone 3G. I haven’t got one yet, in fact I’ve just signed up to a BlackBerry instead.
It’s not because of the battery life. And it’s not that I don’t think the iPhone isn’t impressive (albeit there are several things missing). It’s because I’m on Orange and so will make every little dig I can up to the point where I can actually get my hands on one.
This time I was going to laugh at battery life. Unfortunately someone has already got there first and come up with a solar case for the iPhone. Sure, it doesn’t have the iconic styling of the iPhone’s Jonathan Ive design, but it does have a fantastic appeal to the hippy in us all and even comes complete with ‘holier than though v2.0’.
You’ve got to love it.
With a 10 hour recharge, it’s not the quickest way to fill your battery but what’s a wait when you can feel all warm and pious inside. According to EcoGeek:
“The case uses a solar panel to soak up sun, holds generated energy in a 1500 mAh battery, and then charges up your phone when you insert it.”
EcoGeek also suggests you leave it on the dashboard to charge whilst you’re at work. I guess they don’t have car theft in the US.
