SolLight intros SoliCharger Solar-powered iPhone charger


SolLight has introduced its new SoliCharger, a new solar-powered charger the the iPhone and some iPods. The bottom-connecting lithium-ion battery pack features a solar panel on one side for charging, but can also be charged via a standard iPhone USB cable or 12V iPod/iPhone car charger, providing up to a 50% charge for the iPhone. It also features a pass-through 30-pin port, LED charging status lights, and the ability to charge some other iPod models—due to the design, some wider iPods will not fit in the device. The SolLight SoliCharger is available now and sells for $40.

$40 is actually really fairly priced.  I was expecting at least double or something from this.  That being said, my guess is that if they’ve priced this for such an amount that the solar panel either isn’t the best quality or maybe it just isn’t that quick to recharge.  I would still like it if Apple implemented their patent basically for a solar panel behind the display, that was it’s all in one and makes use of wasted light if you leave your phone out of your pocket or belt.
