New Prong iPhone case plugs directly into outlet

Till last year we had been reading reviews on the Prong PocketPlug which was an iPhone case with fold out wall prongs to enable the phone to be charged directly when its plugged in an outlet, without any cables. However, there was one very important thing missing about the case and it was a supplementary battery for extra power on the go. This was essential considering the size of the case but this missing element has made its way up till here.

The new Prong PWR Case for iPhone 5/5S puts all issues at hand and now comes with a battery which is not going to be inside the case, as we were imagining it to be, it’s rather outside the case. We might be wondering how this is possible. Well, there are two elements to this new Prong iPhone case; a basic bumper designed to protect your phone and a battery-equipped sled. The basic cover is going to slide onto the battery sled whenever some extra power would be required. The prongs this time come with the sled so that it is kept plugged right into an outlet. At this moment we all might think that the original PocketPlug seemed like it had plenty of room inside for a battery and it might be able to house it inside but this particular design has its benefits. There is not going to be any extra bulk when you don’t need it.

If you want to go for charging with a cord then this PWR case also features a Micro-USB port in the bottom. It has a 1,500mAh battery, which is on the small side for an extended-battery case and at $80 this package doesn’t seem to be a bad deal at all.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
