New iPhone Case Doubles Your Battery Life Too!

There’s a big difference between the iPhone 4 and Galaxy S. No, not iOS vs. Android 2.1 or even Retina vs. Super AMOLED. We’re talking batteries: one is removable and one isn’t — guess which is which? This perennial iPhone “feature” has spawned as entire industry of device-specific accessories that sate the need for more juice while simultaneously killing the form (and aesthetic) of an otherwise pocketable gadget. But hey, it’s your only choice when you’re either too busy (CES) or unable (intercontinental flights) to tether yourself to a power socket. And guess what? Those curvy battery packs that hugged your iPhone 3G/3GS won’t work with the boxy iPhone 4. So, here’s the latest, and one of the first iPhone 4 cases with an extended battery pack to ship. The Mili PowerSpring 4 starts shipping today for £54.99 (or $85 on Amazon). It claims to be the world’s thinnest iPhone 4 battery pack to double your battery life thanks to a 1600mAh capacity Li-Pol battery. That makes this roadwarrior necessity just a bit less evil.

The iPhone 4 case That Solves the Antennae Problem

Bumpers for your iPhone are one of the suggested methods of making sure the latest handset from Apple works perfectly fine no matter how you hold it, so why not go ahead and do it in style? We’re talking about the Vapor4 bumper which is made out of aluminum and looks stunning. It depends much more on the iPhone 4 than the other way round though, since Apple’s latest phone looks great on its own. Being made of aluminum, they come with an interior liner that separates the metal from the antenna, resulting in insulating it from your hand. Such beauty will cost you though as the Vapor4 retails for $80 a pop, and topping that amount with another $100 will net you the V4Carbon, a carbon fiber back plate which offers better reception as well as protection for the iPhone 4’s glass back.
