Voltaic Systems launches an iPad case which doubles as a solar charger

New York-based Voltaic Systems have announced a new iPad case – which doubles as a case and a charger --enabling users to charge the iPad battery using solar energy any time. Called the Voltaic Spark Solar Charger for tablets, the case is a powerful and compact way to carry and charge an iPad. The charger works with other tablets as well.
