Preorder This Solar Powered iPad Case And Get Rid Of Your Charger Forever



If you’re anything like me, you’ll be forever losing the charger for your Apple gadgets. Thanks to this solar powered iPad case, however, you may never need one again.

The LilyPad 2 is an an Apple certified iPad 2 case that is packed with incredibly helpful functions. Not only will it charge your device using the sun when you lose your charger, but when you lose the device itself, it will whistle at you until you find it. Honestly! And it doesn’t stop there.

Made from 80% recycled materials, the LilyPad 2 also provides a great deal of protection to your delicate tablet, with a screen cover that uses magnets to automatically wake your device just like Apple’s Smart Cover. There’s a built-in HDMI output, a stylus pen, a battery backup, a whistle locator and a keyboard stand.

However, all that functionality comes at a price… and not just an aesthetic one. The LilyPad 2 is available to pre-order now from $165 on Kickstarter. It will begin shipping in October, and is available in two tones of black, two tones of grey, green, and pink.
