In rural environments of India and African countries, where mobile phones play an active role in keeping the population informed and safe, it's not unusual to see people travel long distances to recharge their batteries. Phorce offers an easy, convenient solution to harvest sun-power; the Phorce casing incorporates a solar cell that directly recharges the phone battery whilst fast charging with a cable / power supply is still possible. Very sturdy, Phorce offers great protection and a very convenient way to carry the phone on your arm so it always benefits from the best sun exposure.
