| The iPhone may be the ultimate handset, but it is only as good as its battery charge. Extend that charge on the go with a solar charger for your iPhone. The key questions to answer before jumping to a solar cellphone charger option is knowing your iPhone model, and determining your needs. |
First assess what you want out of a solar iPhone charger. What kind of outdoor time do you have? Do you get ambient light indoors? Do you want a standalone charger, or one that is integrated into the phone's case?
Solar panels integrated into a phone case is the most convenient, though it can add some bulk to the case. It's also important to know your model as this is one case where size matters. Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the solar charging and waterproof functions of the Enerplex Solar iPhone Charger Case for iPhone 6 and 6S. The Enerplex Solar iPhone Charger Case completely encases the phone while leaving all buttons and ports available via sealed plugs. A rugged polycarbonate body protects the phone from bumps and drops. The built-in solar panel recharges the phone when the battery gets low. A loop lets you clip your phone to a belt or bag so it's exposed to sunlight.
Separate chargers are not always specific to the iPhone model, or the iPhone. Be sure it has the appropriate Lightning cable adapter. Older models will want to be sure there is a 30-pin connector, or that one on hand will work with the charger.
The Power Monkey Extreme Solar Charger for iPad, iPhone and other Smartphones and Tablets is a very portable kit with a small solar panel and battery for transferring the charge. The solar panel opens in a clamshell style. The battery holds energy collected from the panel, and can store it until it's ready to transfer to the phone. One charge will power an iPhone four to six times.
Solar is a viable option, and even indoor light can be used to collect energy for small devices. It is essential to match the solar iPhone charger to your lifestyle, so that it suits all needs of mobility, protection and convenience.
