Your iPhone’s Best Friend – The iPhone 5 PowerSkin

A power case or a power skin is the best thing that can ever happen to your iPhone. We are becoming more and more dependent on our smartphones and the most annoying thing that can happen to it, besides dropping it into the toilet or getting it stolen, is a dead battery.

When it comes to power cases or skins, you have a wide selection of products but not all function well. We tested the PowerSkin Case for iPhone 5 and fell in love with it instantly, it is totally getting our approval. Our first really positive impression from the powerskin case was it’s thinness and slick design. Most of the time these type of cases are bulky, heavy and completely ruin the iPhone’s slick feel and look, which is a complete shame. Luckily, that’s not the case here, with the PowerSkin.

How it works

The skin case packs 1500 mAh of power capacity, extending talk time by up to 6.5 hours and music time up to 32 hours. All you need to do in order to activate this case is snap it in and switch the on/off button located on the back. Once you turn it on, you’ll see a LED battery light displaying the amount of charge left. You can easily power it off/on when you need it or when your phone is fully charged. This function allows you to use the case as you iphone’s default case, so you don’t need to remove it and put it on every time you use it. It’s super easy to use and of course it does a great job, so no more dead battery for you. The bottom line is that this case is answering two of the most important functions once it comes to a power case:

1. It is super slim, adding only 0.3 inches to the phone, so you keep the traditional slick and thin look of your iPhone, and it doesn’t look bulky or plastic.

2. Not only does this case charge your phone, but it also provides tough, shock-proof protection.

The PowerSkin for iPhone 5 is available at  for $79.99.
