The SnowLizard SLXtreme case provides solutions to each of these issues, with a waterproof rugged exterior, a built-in auxiliary battery pack, and a large solar panel. The SLX case is already available for iPhone 6/6S and 7 models, but the company recently announced a model will soon be available for the iPhone 7 Plus.

The company also states that the iPhone 7 Plus case offers several improvements on the previous designs: more shock-absorbing material, a more efficient solar panel, and a new light intensity indicator so you can ensure it's receiving maximum solar energy.
The new SnowLizard SLXtreme iPhone 7 Plus case will be available in black or Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camouflage. Once it's released, you'll be able to find it on SnowLizard.com and Amazon at an MSRP of $150.
