The Surfr is available now at goenerplex.com as well as select retail partners. The Surfr Battery and Solar case for the iPhone 6 is the first Apple MFi (Made for iPhone) certified case to integrate both battery storage as well as solar charging capability into a sleek, thin and compact design. Enabling more than 10 hours of extra talk time as well as doubled video and audio capacity, the Surfr keeps iPhone users powered up throughout their day without needing to be constantly on watch for an outlet. See CNET's review of the EnerPlex Surfr here http://www.cnet.com/products/surfr/.
