As much as we would like our mobile devices to last all day on a single charge, that just isn’t always possible especially if we are constantly on our phones engaging with social networks and uploading massive amounts of photos. That’s why, battery cases have been quite popular over the years with many people purchasing at least one to use on certain occasions. I use one in fact on long days where I know I will not be anywhere near a charging area. With that said, PowerSkin, a well known maker of battery packs and battery cases have unveiled their next generation of battery cases for the iPhone 5 at this year’s CES.

This year, they have introduced the PowerSkin Pro, PowerSkin Hybrid, and the PowerSkin Battery Case for the iPhone 5.


PowerSkin Pro

The PowerSkin Pro line of iPhone 5 battery cases will feature a double-injection, TPU bezel with a soft-touch, hard plastic shell available in five bright colors – white, black, titanium, red and pink. Packing 2000 mAh of power and LED indicator lights in front for a glance-and-go visual battery check, the PowerSkin Pro line offers the brand’s slimmest case yet.


PowerSkin Hybrid Battery Charger

The PowerSkin Hybrid Battery Charger will feature small, flexible suction cups that adhere externally to mobile devices, connecting via a soft, flex tip to a micro-USB, Apple 30-pin or Apple Lightning connector, allowing users to recharge their device without having to remove their current case. Boasting 2000 mAh of power capacity, the PowerSkin Hybrid Battery Chargers will extend power between 50 to 70 percent, depending on the mAh of the device being charged. They will be available in black, white, titanium, red and pink.


PowerSkin® Battery Case for iPhone 5

As the first SKU in PowerSkin’s® slimmest design ever, the iPhone 5 case will feature a new ultra-thin angular shape, fitting comfortably in the palm of the hand. The iPhone 5 Designer Series PowerSkin® will extend talk time up to 6 hours and Wi-Fi usage up to 8 hours with its 1500 mAh power capacity, featuring an on/off button to activate a charge or to turn the PowerSkin® off, and an LED battery level indicator.  PowerSkin will also unveil the Ultra Thin design for the Samsung Galaxy S III case, including 2 limited-edition colors.
