Extra power for iPhone 4 / 4S with a fashion flair. Thin case + hybrid solar charger + rechargeable battery pack + color bumpers.
2/28-we have found a new factory that will have a slightly different design next month. Therefore, we have to cancel this project and start a new one when we confirm this. Thank you for your interest.Here are the details:
Don't worry about your iPhone 4 / 4S running out of power in the middle
of the day-or out on the street.
The Monster Watts hybrid solar charger battery cases combine a solar charger with built-in back up battery power in protective and stylish cases for the iPhone 4 / 4S. They can be personalized with different color bumpers to match your mood and wardrobe.
Metal cases and bumpers reduce the reception and that's why this case is made with high quality ABS plastic for protection without interference.
Thin Case available in black or white with interchangeable color bumper.
Whether you're outdoors or indoors, away from electrical outlets; you can
relax knowing that with the extra battery life and ambient sunlight - your
iPhone 4 / 4S will not run out of power any time soon.
It virtually doubles your up time to surf, talk, and play. Recharges automatically whenever it's under sunlight. Its hybrid charging system means that it can also be charged with any computer or home/car charger via the built-in micro USB port.
The Monster Watts Thin Case is different than other products currently available. Those are slide-in holster types with bland looking exteriors. In fact, we've sold many of a Power Sleeve model that was designed in the UK.

Although it does the job well, we felt it should be thinner and better looking so we came up with a design that incorporates a thinner rechargeable lithium polymer battery, larger solar panel, and a protective case with a wrap around color bumper that can be switched to fit your mood and fashion.
Up front is the new Thin Case. The lithium polymer rechargeable battery
is thinner and still rated at 2400 mAh. The Apple battery is 1400 mAh.
The Thin Case (in the middle) is a wrap around case that protects the iPhone while providing full access to buttons and ports.
Color bumpers can be easily switched.
Choice of black or white Thin Case.
It took a few months, but we finally found a manufacturer that can make this, with the quality that we need; and they have the working prototype already completed. The funds will be used towards paying for the mold and initial production.
By the way, the retail price is $120, but the Kickstarter prices are discounted and come with additional bumpers (for pledges of $300 and up).
The Monster Watts Thin Case is a complete case with a replaceable color bumper that wraps around the iPhone 4 / 4S. The battery and solar charger are very thin and lightweight. Once enclosed, the iPhone does not have to be removed again. There is a micro USB port that allows external charging and computer access for syncing. The solar charger can keep the battery charged when outdoors under the sun.
