We’re not big fans of solar charger iPhone cases (we much prefer a separate solar charger and external battery combination), but our friends at The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) took a first look at a charging case from Eton and they like what they see.
The Mobius sports a 1800 mAh battery — more than enough to give your iPhone a full charge — and can be recharged via USB. But its monocrystalline color cell can turn an hour of sunlight into up to 25 minutes of talk time or 20 minutes of 3G data use, according to it makers.
Interestingly, the company recommends taking the case off the phone while charging via the solar panel, which makes sense, but limits the unit’s effectiveness in protecting your phone.
