New Case with Battery for iPhone Appears

Claims to double the life of your battery

Something that falls in the interesting category crossed my desk this morning.


This is a new case for the iPhone, but it is not a simple "protect your phone" type of case. No, this case includes a battery to help increase the usefulness of your iPhone between charges.


The new gadget is called the iConn+ iBP1200 it looks like an oversized leather slide-in case for the iPhone but once you open the front flap you find out that it is much more.


Under that cover rests an extra Li-polymer 3.7V/1200mAh battery that is capable of almost doubling the length of time between charges. You are still able to connect and sync your iPhone even while in the case. The iBP1200 will also charge both batteries at the same time when connected to power or your system. You also still have access to the headphone jack and camera while in the iBP1200. Considering the number of apps that eat your battery like a kid in a candy store this is certainly something that the market could use.


Pricing should be around $80 (US) with availability right around the corner.
