The Kudo Solar iPad Case
The 4mm thick Kudocase comes with a powerful 10,000 mAh battery. It can also store additional power, which you can use to charge your smartphone, camera or music player. According to the case maker, this solar charger can avail up to ten days of energy with an average use. Kudo has made the iPad case with hard-shell and rubber-coated body.
In order to offset the carbon footprint of fabricating the hard-shell iPad case, Kudo plants a tree for a single case shipped. The case maker has partnered with environmental groups for this. Apart from a case, the Kudocase doubles as a strong stand for your iPad. Placing your tablet on the stand, you can watch movies, slideshows and listen to music anywhere.
Amazingly, the solar-powered case sports a built-in HDMI port. Thus, you can stream content from the tablet on external projectors and TVs without taking it out of the case. Kudo currently produces the case in black color. In future, the firm aims to launch the Kudocase in gray, blue, pink and green colors. Kudo will sell the case for $190 and pre-orders will start on May 11, 2012.
