One issue I have had with device cases that contain battery packs is the bulk and weight added to your device that you carry on your person. I really don’t want that bulge or all that bulk in my front pocket. TYLT offers a solution in the form of the ENERGI Sliding Power Cases available for a host of devices.
TYLT offers a little bit of everything when it comes to specific needs for enhancing your mobile device and this ENERGI Sliding Power Case for my iPhone 6 gave me the opportunity to work all day long with my device recently in New York City as I covered the auto show there.
One of the first things I noticed with the TYLT ENERGI setup is that there is a separate inner sleeve (case) for the device allowing it to be undocked from the 3,200 mAh power sleeve (battery pack) while still being protected during use. You can access all of your device functions when the power sleeve is attached but the ability to undock is a wonderful option.
TYLT says the ENERGI power sleeve offers an extra 120 percent of battery life for my iPhone 6 and I believe it. After rushing around the Javitz Center at the New York International Auto Show and all over lower and midtown Manhattan, the TYLT ENERGI system never let me down and continued to allow me to shoot and post images while also having fun with some image editing in my iOS apps. Normally on a trip like this I begin to get battery life anxiety some time after lunch and find myself having to ration my device usage so I can make it back to my charger. Not so thanks to the TYLT ENERGI Sliding Power Case system.
The polycarbonate inner case is of minimal design and adds very little bulk to the phone while having a texture that feels almost velvety smooth but never slick. The power sleeve case features a lighting plug extending up from the inner bottom for easy connection to the device when added power is needed or when you wish to give your device a quick charge.
A power bar with four LED lights on the rear of the sleeve doubles as both a power level indicator as well as a power on/off switch when attaching to your device. The lower portion of the power sleeve allows for use of your earbuds and there is an external charge port for recharging the pack with a provided USB cable. On the face of the lower portion of the power sleeve are outlets allowing for the speaker and mic of the device to be used easily and efficiently when attached.
TYLT offers a host of other products for mobile devices from cables to screen protectors to backpacks with built-in batteries. The ENERGI Sliding Power Case for the iPhone 6 is priced at $99.99 MSRP. In the slick package is the 3,200 mAh power sleeve, the dual-layer inner case and the micro-USB charge and sync cable. At this time, black is the only color the unit is offered in. TYLT devices and accessories are available in your service provider store or at www.shop.tylt.com.
