If you like your iPhone cases a little more rugged for the added protection, and always wished that they could double as a battery pack as well, this new mophie case should be right up your alley. Called the mophie juice pack PRO, this rather massive case comes loaded with a honking battery (2500 mAh) that will be able to provide an extra 150% more power to your phone. Its Otterbox like exterior not only provides drop/impact/shock protection, but it’s also water resistant and dust proof. And like other juice pack cases, this one’s equipped with a standby switch, so you get to decide when the iPhone 4/4S actually gets charged. The mophie juice pack PRO is available now – black only – on mophie.com for $129. More images and info after the break.
The iPhone will soon have its own Smart Cover like its iPad sibling – well, sort of. Brought to you by two design students in Chicago, the TidyTilt is a 3-in-1 Smart Cover look-alike that acts as an earbud cord wrap, multi-position kickstand and mount for the iPhone 4/4S. What it doesn’t do however, is protect your screen or wake up the device upon opening/closing.
Korean accessories maker ego&company has unveiled what could be one of the more useful iPhone cases around. Dubbed the ego USB and part of the their “Hybrid Series”, this snap on iPhone 4/4S case has room for one ultraslim usb stick that slides in from the bottom. The sticks come in 5 colors and it appears the capacity is tied in with the actual color: skyblue (2GB), pink (4GB), red (8GB), yellow (16GB) and black (32GB). Pricing and availability info have yet to be released, but seeing how this clever combo could eliminate the need for carrying around an extra usb, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one.[iLounge]
I stole the tagline from EMVY just to see what sort of reception this badboy would get from TMA readers. I mean, this iPhone case is packed: juice, flash, protection – what more do you need from a ~65$ iPhone case? And since it’s all in one package, it might even trump Morphie’s Juice Pack. What’s the catch? Well, the EMVY case looks to still be on pre-order on one hand, and it targets the outgoing 3G/3GS on the other. It may be late to the game, but its specs are fine looking to say the least:
-More then 1x your iPhone battery
-On/Off switch for on the spot charging
-Flash LED light for low light camera use or emergency light
-Sleek rubber type surface (not too slippery, not too sticky)
-Specially designed to fit your hand comfortably (tested)
-Mini USC cable included, charges both iPhone and case, syncs to itunes
-Integrated 3 battery light indicator
-Increases standby time by 240 hours!
-Up to 4+ hours of continuous additional 3G talk and data time
-Cell type: Li-Polymer battery
