 |  |  |  |  March 4, 2013

If you’re an iPhone 5 user looking for a case to protect your device and in need of extra battery life, PowerSkin has announced a new product is now shipping. The product is called the PowerSkin for Apple iPhone 5 and is made from soft silicone.


The case leaves all of the phone’s controls open and available for use, and its maker promises that the iPhone 5 version is its thinnest design ever, adding only 0.3-inches of additional thickness to the iPhone 5. The case measures 2.5 x .65 x 5.1-inches and weighs only 0.18 pounds. That means that not only is the case incredibly thin, it’s also very light.┬áDespite the fact that the case is very thin and light, it adds 1500 mAh of power to your smartphone. That means you can talk for an extra 6.5 hours, use Wi-Fi for an extra eight hours, and the phone will last on standby for an extra 182 hours.

The PowerSkin for iPhone 5 is available right now for $79.99(USD).
