Solar Mobile Chargers

Tech companies are focusing more on energy than ever before. Brands aren't just designing devices and gadgets for what they can do — they're also considering how efficiently they can function.

When it comes to energy efficiency, solar power is a great option. It's practically digital photosynthesis — if flowers and plants get their energy from the sun, why can't we power our devices with the same? It's also useful in emergencies; the power in your home may go out, but the sun will stick around and return the next day.

The gallery above features some especially creative solar-powered chargers that are more than just unsightly panels. Some look like a pieces of art, others have multiple uses and they're all pretty innovative. Which one piques your interest?

1. Snow Lizard SLXtreme Case


The SLXtreme is a a rugged, waterproof, solar-charging case for the iPhone 4, 4S and 5. It was originally a Kickstarter project that received more than twice its funding goal.
