It doesn’t come with a built-in backup battery, or a solar charger, but the Seat Buddy could be one of the most useful silicone iPhone/iPod Touch cases on the market. The only thing that makes it look even remotely distinct from other cases on the market is the pair of rubber straps sticking out of one side, which can be used to hang it from the back of a car or airplane seat’s headrest, the top of a treadmill, a glove compartment or anywhere you can secure them.
It can pretty much be used anywhere, and an included set of velcro pieces allows the straps to be attached to each other so you don’t necessarily have to use it in a place where the straps are clamped down. The SeatBuddy was apparently invented by an airline pilot who could never find the perfect position for watching movies on his iPhone, hopefully not while on duty, and they’re available on the company’s website for ~$24 each with shipping, but the more you buy, the cheaper it gets.
