Tekkeon Releases myPower, the First iPhone 4 Extended Battery Case with Swappable Batteries

Using an extended battery which also serves as an iPhone case is a great way to keep your phone going all day, and it’s nothing new. But Tekkeon is introducing a new twist — swappable battery packs available in either 1200 mAh (the Ultra Slim) or 2200 mAh (the Ultra Power). So here’s how it works: the myPower Extended Battery Case comes with an Ultra Slim extended battery, and you can order extra batteries in either the Slim or the Power size; rather than remove the case when its extended battery loses its charge, you just swap out the depleted battery.

•Delivers power for hours of extra play/work time through an innovative bypass that preserves the iPhone 4 battery by powering, not charging, your iPhone 4
•eSwap™ technology lets you swap the battery module on the go to double, triple, or more, the amount of power you get with myPower for iPhone 4. Optional eSwap battery modules available in ultra slim or ultra power.
