It would appear that the future in keeping your smartphone charged up when out and about so you don’t get all frustrated by running out of juice lies in solar power, using the suns rays to power up your device, and at CES 2012, PowerSkin has announced two new solar powered mobile accessories for your smartphone.

According to the guys over at Engadget, Powerskin have announced the SolarCharge and KeyCharge accessories to keep you powered up whilst on the go via the big burning orb in our sky, fine by day but pretty useless at night.

Anyway, the PowerSkin SolarCharge is a wraparound case that features a solar panel on its rear and works with the iPhone, iPod Touch, Android and BlackBerry smartphones, and has a 1000mAh battery inside that is said to deliver up to roughly 350-minutes of talk time.

The SolarCharge is made of a single piece of plastic and wrapped in a shock absorbent silicone skin to add a little protection, and connects to your chosen smartphone via the included microUSB.

The PowerSkin KeyCharge is another power option that attaches to your keychain and can deliver a quick boost of power to your device anywhere and connects to the handset again via its microUSB and has a 750mAh battery which is said to deliver a boost of up to 90 minutes additional time.

The PowerSkin SolarCharge and PowerSkin KeyCharge accessories will become available to purchase sometime in February and command a price tag of $69.99 for the SolarCharge and $24.99 for the KeyCharge.
