One thing about most any smartphone is battery life, it’s short, someday they’ll figure out how to give us more than a days worth of run time on a single charge with  a smartphone. If you’re a green type of person and need more power for your iPhone then you might want to look at solar options like the new one from Choice Solar. The SunCharge, at 2.7 W, delivers typically 4 to 6 times the power of most solar chargers in the market, reducing recharge time and it’s rather inexpensive at $39.95.

Choice Solar designed the SunCharge for use in India where the need for affordable, reliable mobile phone charging is an immense unmet need, but found a market in the US as well.

The SunCharge’s 2.7 W makes a huge difference.” Katherine Cleland, co-founder of Choice Solar adds ”The company is keenly aware of a growing desire for environmentally friendly solar charging options which are affordable, functional, and very easy to use. Our contacts in the US pressed us to make our product available now, and we listened”
