I’ve used battery cases before, especially the Mophie Juice Pack Air which I used on the iPhone 4. I find them to be quite convenient on long trips and a much better solution really than carrying around a separate rechargeable battery station. However, I’ve been disappointed by the lack of available battery cases for the iPhone 5. That changed however at CES 2013 as there were quite a few companies who will be releasing a battery case for it. One company is uNu which I admit, I’ve never heard of until now, though they seem to have been around for quite some time.
There latest offering will be the uNu DX battery case for the iPhone 5 which will feature a 2300mAh batter good for at least double the original battery life. It also features an LED status light to show you how much charge is left and sound channels that will enhance the audio from your device. If you look at the design however, it is a bit similar to the Mophie cases but since they don’t have a case for the iPhone 5, I’ll be looking forward to checking these out when they are released. Expect them mid to late February with a retail price for $79.99.
Union City, Calif., Jan. 8, 2012 – uNu Electronics Inc., a global provider and distributor of portable power accessories, unveiled its latest innovative product, the DX Protective Battery Case for iPhone 5. Certified by Apple, the DX Protective Battery Case for iPhone 5 features an integrated rechargeable 2300mAh battery that more than doubles the battery life for the device.
“It’s great to be unveiling this at CES,” says uNu CEO Sen Cai. “We’re so pleased to have received certification from Apple in time for the show. This product is sleek and innovative, and we think the market is going to respond well.”
Highlighted by its lightweight, ultra slim design, the protective case is made to fit snugly and enhance the iPhone 5’s sleek industrial design while offering high-performance functionality. The additional power yields 43 hours of music playback, 8 hours of web-browsing, and 10 hours of talk time.
Awarded the prestigious “Made for iPhone” certification, the DX has gone through extensive testing and quality assurance to ensure reliability. In fact, the DX has been proven to give quality power even after 500 full recharging cycles. The DX Protective Battery Case for iPhone 5 also allows users to view current battery levels via the LED battery level indicator.
“We designed the DX to not only be stylish but effective,” adds Cai. “It enhances the natural acoustics of the phone while providing an unobtrusive shield of complete protection. The ultra-slim case makes it ideal for on-the-go users, and an invisible charging switch allows the user to decide when an extra power boost is needed.”
