If this big, heavy, bulky device is capable of charging its large 1800 mah battery... why not just leave the battery out... and charge the iPhone's 1400mah battery directly????

Smaller, lighter, and only $20!

I hope a future iPhone just has a solar panel built into the back.

Standby time: Infinite.
