Battery cases are ubiquitous in the mobile industry, offering devices a protective shell while storing those oh-so precious droplets of juice for safe-keeping. But if the two-for-one feature-set is not enough, an interesting new battery case for the iPhone 6 adds a third quirk by delivering waterproofing capabilities.
The Apple iPhone 6 is a market-leading smartphone, and is much-vaunted for a number of reasons. Sleek design, features and powerful hardware that functions in harmony with the software renders the iPhone 6 a definite consideration for most shoppers of high-end handsets, but it does have its share of limitations as well. While the new Apple Watch is splash-proof enough to be taken into the shower and perhaps even for a swim, the iPhone 6 is not waterproof in any sense of the word, and any liquid-related mishaps will likely result in its demise.
But Mophie, a company synonymous with quality battery-related accessories, has come through with its new Juice Pack H2Pro, and as well as keeping your iPhone 6 ticking over for much longer than Apple advertises, will also let you submerge it in water. With a waterproofing rating of IP68, it’ll drop down to 1.2 meters for up to half an hour, which means you can get your Instagram on while having a bath, but without the usual worry that your precious handset will slip from your grasp.
Sure, you won’t be able to take it deep-sea diving, but aside from protecting your iPhone 6 from potential liquid damage, it also adds a broader air of ruggedness to proceedings. The waterproofing is allied to dust-resistance, meaning that you won’t get any specks creeping into those nooks and crannies, and since the H2Pro is also protected against shocks and drops, it must go down as one of the best all-rounders for Apple’s flagship to date.
The toughened plastic construction will also deter scratches and scrapes, but while it’s quite a sizable case, it does still let you use core features like the display and Touch ID.
The 2750mAh capacity of the battery component will charge your phone from zero all the way up to full, so it’s a double-up in that regard, but in terms of general protection against the elements, the improvement is immeasurable.
If you think the new H2Pro case goes way beyond what you need, then be sure to check out other Mophie cases for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as well. We’re certain you’ll find something that will tickle your fancy.
You can pre-order the H2Pro right now, and shipping of the $129.95 accessory will commence from later this month.
