Keep Warm And Charge Your Cell Phone All At The Same Time

New wool and nylon jackets from Tommy Hilfiger enhanced with 7-10 solar panels will both keep you warm and charge a battery to keep your cell phone or other mobile devices working. The battery fully charges beyond the capacity of most smartphones while being in the direct sunlight.

Weighing four (4) pounds, the jacket combines a weatherproof upper with plaid Abraham Moon wool. A removal bag allows the solar panels to be stored when not in use.

While retailing for $599 with a 1-year limited warranty, 50% of the net proceeds will be donated to support the Fresh Air Fund.

The downside for fashion is that it appears that this jacket is available in only two colors, one for men and one for women.
