We think we have a winner for best iPhone case with the Incase Power Slider, which not only protects your mobile handheld computer/phone like any other case, BUT also throws in the whiz-bang-wow factor of doubling the battery life of the iPhone with a small profile "lithium-ion polymer battery with efficient circuitry was created for Power Slider to allow for a slim design and maximum power output." What that means is your iPhone can finally be used without worry throughout the day while you chat, text, and browse...something we currently have to be careful about with the iPhone's poor battery life performance. More details below...
An integrated sync mode allows Power Slider users to easily sync and charge their devices while iPhone 3G is in Power Slider. A five-light LED battery status indicator gauges battery life and also denotes sync mode and charging. Included with every Power Slider is a custom USB 2.2 cable that allows for high capacity charging and data exchange for optimal charging and syncing. Additionally, Power Slider is compatible with all USB charging ports that provide 5V at 1A output.
Additional battery life provided by Power Slider
- Standby time: up to 330 hours
- Audio playback: up to 26 hours
- Talk time: up to 5 hours on 3G network and 10 hours on 2G network
- Video playback: up to 7 hours
- Internet use: up to 5 hours on 3G network and 6 hours on Wi-Fi
The Power Slider will be available as a great stocking stuffer sometime during the 2008 holidays (so we're thinking early December) for a suggested retail price of $99.95, available at the Apple Store, Best Buy Mobile and directly from the Incase webstore.
