Tommy Hilfiger launches Solar Power Jackets to charge your phone

Fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger has found a new way for you to keep your phone or tablet charged while you're out with your friends. With the assistance of solar manufacturer Pvilion, the clothing label has launched a pair of jackets one for men, one for women that has an array of solar panels to collect solar power for charging your gadgets if you find yourself in a power bind. Energy from the solar panels is directed to a cable and then to two USB ports in the pockets allowing the wearer to charge two devices at once. The battery is capable of completely charging a 1,500 mAh device up to four times once fully charged. Tommy Hilfiger's solar-powered jacket is available now for $599. Dec 5, 2014
