Solar Arcadia is now offering several styles of solar-powered, charging-capable cases for the iPhone and iPhone 3G. Both the SideFlip and Leather Flip cases features solar panels that charge a 3.7V 1500 mAh lithium polymer battery with LED status indicators and a reverse current protection circuit to prevent batteries form being discharged. The cases are made from ABS sheepskin, offer open access to the sleep/wake and volume buttons as well as the ring/silent switch, and feature built-in screen protectors as well as either vertically- (Leather Flip) or horizontally-opening (SideFlip) front flip covers which also hold the solar panels. Available in red, white, or black, Solar Arcadia’s SideFlip Solar iPhone cases sell for $40-$46, while the Leather Flip, available in black only, sells for $46.
