Here’s a $4,500 iPhone X with a solar charger on the back

A Russian accessory maker named Caviar has started selling a solar-powered version of the iPhone X going for $4,500. Caviar is branding the phone the iPhone X “Tesla” and it initially announced its plans back in November, as spotted by AppleInsider.

Since Caviar makes neither iPhones nor Teslas, the iPhone X Tesla’s functions aren’t built directly into the device. Instead, the iPhone X Tesla is actually a pretty thick phone case that attaches directly onto the device, with a solar panel on the back that powers a secondary battery for additional juice. Caviar claims the case has IP67 water and dust resistance.

Caviar’s first unit of the iPhone X Tesla case has the engraving, “Made on Earth by Humans,” in honor of when Elon Musk sent a Tesla Roadster into space aboard a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket back in February. Each unit is also getting its own production number, and Caviar says it’s only making 999 units.

For $4,555, you can get the iPhone X Tesla with 64GB of storage (the phone is included with case), and for $4,805, you can get the 256GB model. Since it’s imported from Russia, there may be additional taxes and duties. If you’re more of a Vladimir Putin fan than an Elon Musk fan, Caviar has also made a $2,500 Nokia commemorating Putin’s meeting with President Donald Trump, as well as a $3,000 Apple Watch worthy of Putin himself.
