No, it does not.

What does it do? It covers the battery compartment.

One word answer: NO
The back cover is not a solar panel.

Wow... Did someone actually tell you that? What ppl said that?

Look at the inside of the door/cover and observe what appears to be an antenae. I hadn't thought about it, but my guess it's for NFC. But it isn't a solar panel.

aiharkness is correct, the two connections are for the NFC antenna.

@ the OP - read this for more info on your back cover --

Near field communication - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

@ LunkHead - here you go!

Strap this on your back and charge your BB!
