One of the drags of modern smartphones is the fact that battery technology simply hasn’t kept up with a lot of other tech breakthroughs. Consider memory, for example. Back in the day, a 100 Megabyte hard drive could be a couple inches tall and half a foot long; now you can pack dozen of Gigabytes into an object smaller than your thumb. I mean, that’s amazing. But batteries? Yeah, we’ve got Lithium-Ion batteries that pack more punch that your average Duracell, for sure, but they haven’t come close to keeping up. Which gives you a problem with something portable, what with the whole “have to charge it every day” situation and all. Which is why PowerSkin has a whole bunch of battery cases for a whole bunch of different phones that they’d like you to consider:
PowerSkin®, maker of shock-absorbing, battery-boosting cases for smartphones and gaming accessories, debuted the industry-first NFC-enabled case in September, launching three additional skins in November which support NFC transmission, including the HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy Express and Windows Phone 8X by HTC.
The HTC One X+ PowerSkin®, which boasts 1500 mAh of rechargeable power for up to twice the talk time, and Smart Power Management technology to activate a charge to smartphones, will be available for $79.99 beginning November 7, and will also work with the original HTC One X released earlier this year.
The Samsung Galaxy Express PowerSkin®, also $79.99, will become available on November 20, packing 2000 mAh of power and extending talk time by 70 percent.
The Windows Phone 8X by HTC is slated to launch around November 28, also costing $79.99. Talk times will be extended by 60 percent due to the PowerSkin’s® 1500 mAh power capacity.
All three new PowerSkins® will feature an on/off button, LED battery lights displaying charging status, a soft-touch anti-dust silicone exterior, and an included cable for syncing data and re-charging.
As part of PowerSkin’s® November specials, consumers who sign up for PowerSkin’s® mailing list at http://bit.ly/PSmailinglist will receive exclusive deals, including $10 discounts and free gifts. Other giveaways will run during the month of November on www.facebook.com/PowerSkinCases.
