The built-in battery life on our smartphones often isn’t long enough to last a full business day, especially one as long and as busy as your average tech savvy small business owner. You’ve got business apps to use and calls to make, so you need to augment that internal battery with an external one.
There are a number of fantastic cases that extend your phone’s battery life. Let’s take a look a some of your options:
This is a known commodity. They’re known for quality, attractive cases that will double your battery life on various iPhone models and a variety of Android phones. Right now, you can get a Mophie Juice Pack for your iPhone 5 from $80. Their $120 model will give you a 120% boost, which is really impressive, giving you ten hours of talk time or internet time. That’ll get you through the longest days, or maybe even the weekend.
This $70 case snaps onto your iPhone in a… snap. In addition to iPhone 4, 4s and 5 cases, they also make some for the Samsung Galaxy S4. The case doubles your battery life for up to eight hours of talk or internet time. Maxboost offers ten different color options for the fashion-conscious among you.
This case also doubles the battery life of you iPhone or Android phone, but the difference with this particular case is that you don’t plug it in to charge it. With the above two cases, you have to plug in your USB into the bottom. With a Magnetyze case on your phone and a Magnetyze dock on your desk, you just put your phone down in its dock and it charges. The case and the dock connect and charge magnetically, which is pretty cool, though it’s ultimately just a gimmick, isn’t it? I’m not sure how much time it really saves you to be able to avoid having to plug a cord in. It’s up to you to decide if the few seconds of saved time and the cool factor make this case worth $100.
Do you have a case that beats these three on functionality or price? Let us know about it in the comments below!
