The Surfr case has a 2000 mAh lithium ion battery built in and comes in black and five other vibrant colors.

Ascent Solar's President and CEO, Victor Lee, said: "The iPhone 5s is one of the best examples of ingenuity and design in consumer electronics; EnerPlex has designed an exceptional case which maintains the beauty, form and function of the iPhone while adding the additional battery life consumers so desperately need. The integration of Ascent’s proprietary thin film solar panel provides the added security of knowing that your phone can be charged in time of emergency, when all else fails.”
