Even as device batteries become more efficient, our constant use of them and the power-hungry apps we employ find us needing to utilize battery packs more and more.

The Rokform BackPack is immediately recognizable as a Rokform device as it uses the same styling and rugged design as the phone cases from the company. And one of the best things about the new BackPack backup battery is that it employs the same Rokform Mounting System and integrated magnetic mount as those device cases. This means you can twist lock the BackPack directly to your phone, which in turn locks to your dash mount, handlebar mount, or non-ferrous metal surface.
