Battery case for iPhones that adds dock for convenience

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, July 18, 2012

A battery  case for iPhones that adds convenience.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     If you have an iPhone and find it difficult to make it through the day on a charge, there are quite a few companies that make phone cases that have batteries built in.  Spyder Digital Research has a model called the PowerShadow i4 that has a grip friendly rubberized feel…and it slips easily and neatly into a dock for charging or syncing.   Michael Nitti is president of the year old company….

“The battery case has two thousand milliamps of power in it which essentially doubles the entire life of your iPhone, yet it’s super compact.  You have two ways to charge the battery on your iPhone and the battery inside your iPhone.   You can either put it in the dock or you can plug directly into the case where there’s another micro USB port.”

The price, about 90 dollars.   There’s more info at spyderstyle.com.  That’s spyder with a y.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
