Anker Extended Battery Case

Nothing is worse than stock battery life on a phone. If you are lucky, you can just buy an extended battery and be on your way. Unfortunately for you iPhone  users, it’s not that simple. The folks over at Anker  have come up with an extended battery case that not only gives you 2400mAh extra power to keep your phone going all day long, but is MFi certified by Apple.

The Anker Extended Battery Case for the iPhone 5/5S is an easy and convenient way to get extra time on your phone without having to be attached to a wall outlet. The Battery Case is a two piece case that consists of the battery pack and a bumper style frame that connects the phone to the battery case.

The case includes a built-in 2400mAh battery that is equivalent to the battery in the iPhone 5S. This will take your phone 0% battery life to 100% without the need for a charging cable or wall outlet. If your phone is already fully charged, it will double your phones battery life.

On the back of the battery case are 4 blue LED lights to let you know the charge status of the internal battery. There is also a power button to turn the extended battery off if need be.  Also one of the great feature of the Anker  Battery Case that not many others have added yet is the kick stand so you can watch movies without having to hold your phone if you have a table or flat surface around. There is also the Anker Logo on the back.

There are 2 sides that come with the case also one is clear, and one is smoked. The snap onto the battery pack and hold your phone securely.

To charge both your phone and the case, all you need is the microUSB charging cable that is included in the case. The cable will charge both the battery in the case and also your phone battery.  No need to carry the lightning cable around anymore.

Another great feature of the Anker Battery Case is the fact that the speaker ports are now aimed out to the front so you can easily hear you music and video’s now without having to strain to listen to your music, movies, or podcasts’ anymore.

Included in the package are the battery case, 2 bumpers, charging cable, screen protector, and a headphone extension cable. This cable is used due to the larger bottom to the case that doesn’t allow  some headphone cables to fully connect.

Color options for the Anker Case are Black Battery with Clear and Smoked frame.

Overall, this is a great addition that is needed for an iPhone due to the battery life issues it has. Price is under $50 USD and available at
