Solar charging cases will be available for the iPhone 5/5S
A company called Ascent Solar Technologies will be at CES 2014 with a new line of solar powered cases to help your smartphone stay charged. Among the products the company shows off at CES 2014 will be the Surfr battery and solar case for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S.
Ascent Solar's Manager of Brand Development, Justin Jacobs said, "Ascent looks forward to exhibiting the exciting new and upcoming additions to the EnerPlex product line and giving distribution partners, as well as the media, an opportunity to get a close look at the forthcoming products which will be available in early 2014."
Those cases are designed with a rechargeable battery inside and solar panel on the back. The idea is that the solar panel can help the battery stay topped off when working away from an outlet. The company will have other Soalr accessories at the show as well.
Mr. Jacobs also added, "Our exhibit at CES also includes an open invitation for product designers to come learn and discuss about how our unique, lightweight, flexible and powerful solar technology can be integrated into a wide variety of innovative consumer and specialty outdoor applications; we look forward to exploring new horizons and uses for Ascent’s solar technology.”
