The solar panels on the back of the case help to power up a battery embedded inside of it. But this pricey accessory iPhone X accessory is offering a completely new innovation since it will power the device through solar energy that will be transferred into its own dedicated battery.

The design features a carbon base with gold decorative elements and a battery charge indicator.
