Solar Jackets from Tommy Hilfiger Power Phones

It always seems that when your smartphone is about to die, you’re nowhere near an outlet.

Fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger is coming out with a limited-edition, solar-powered jacket that can power up your electronic devices no matter where you are.

Crazy Solar Power Plants

Hilfiger partnered with solar manufacturer Pvilion to create a jacket for both men and women. On both, the water resistant, flexible solar panels located on the upper back snap on and off according to the look you’re going for.

Energy harvested from the solar panels is directed via a cable to two USB ports in the pockets. This allows the wearer to charge two devices at once.

Each jacket costs a hefty $599, but 50 percent of the proceeds go toward the Fresh Air Fund, a chartible organization sponsored by Tommy Hilfiger that gives 1.7 million New York City children a shot at summer camp.
