Don’t have time to charge your Phone’s battery at home? No worries, you can charge them on-the-go in sunlight.. Doesn’t that sound something from a science-fiction Hollywood movie?
All that aside, Micromax has launched a Solar Powered phone which can charge its batteries when the Solar panel which is fitted to its back is exposed to sunlight. It is said to provide 1.5 hours of talk-time when solar-charged for 3 hours!
The Micromax X259 is a dual SIM phone with dual-standby. Equipped with a 240 x 320 resolution 2.4″ QVGA screen, it has the connectivity options of GPRS and Bluetooth. It also features a VGA camera. The 1000mAh Li-ion battery gives the much needed long battery life! The solar charging feature is basically targeted towards villages where there are frequent electricity-cuts and load shedding!
You can buy the Micromax X259 from all leading retail outlets at Rs. 2499.
