Protective cases, particularly for the iPhone are ten a penny, but this one caught our attention due to an innovative dual function. The STK iPhone 3G Power Pack not only helps protect your iPhone from any bumps and scuffs, it also provides an additional battery boost while the device sits in the case. Manufacturer Santok claims it will help maintain power when people are using the device for the likes of push email and GPS navigation which both have a tendency to drain battery life. The Power Pack works by incorporating a rechargeable Li-ion polymer battery that provides up to 300 hours extra standby time, seven hours talktime and an additional 24 hours music playback.
Santok's 3G Power Pack is charged via a boxed in mini-USB cable which simultaneously charges both the pack and the iPhone. The flip-case itself is made from leather while an integrated hole means you will continue to be able to take your snaps without the need of removing the phone.
The STK iPhone 3G Power Pack is available for £25 from www.missgroovy.co.uk.
