PowerSkin boosts iPhone, mobile batteries with Pop'n case
Thursday, February 14, 2013 @ 7:17pm

Battery-boosting case manufacturer PowerSkin, has debuted a new 2000 mAh pop-on battery charger titled PoP'n, featuring small, flexible suction cups that adhere externally to mobile devices and connect via an interchangeable tip to a Micro-USB, Apple 30-pin or Apple Lightning connector.



The PoP'n battery charger features a tough high-gloss plastic exterior, heat-injected soft rubber suction cups on the interior, and a grey rubber connector tip on the bottom that can flex up to 90 degrees to accommodate larger cases. Similar to the rest of the PowerSkin line, PoP'n includes a LED light strip on the back indicating the amount of battery charge remaining in the case. The case extends power up to 70 percent, depending on the capacity of the battery in the device being charged, in a 10mm-thick (0.4 inch) design adding 86 grams (3 oz) to the weight of the phone. PoPín is now available in black and white versions at the PowerSkin website for $70 with a Micro-USB connector or $80 for a version with the Apple Lightning connector. Red and pink versions are forthcoming.
