ibattz iPhone extended Battery case, a dropSKIP top pick!

Regardless of whether you choose iPhone or Android as your optimal mobile device one thing is certain, your battery life will almost always not be enough for your day to day activity.
We have tested countless battery extenders for mobile phones and many for months on end.
Although there are many options, nothing has been quite a sweet as the new ibattz power case for iPhone 4/4s.
It’s the one unit that has a removable battery, better yet, it’s a very common battery, a Nokia BP-4L. A base battery that adds 1500Mah to the back of your iPhone and when it runs low, simply slide the light weight back cover off and replace the battery with the additional second BP-4L which is included.
At first I was impressed with the box stating 3000Mah, but the reality is, thats both additional batteries, disappointing? actually initially yes, but after thinking about it and using it for several weeks to date, it is pretty darn cool that I can quickly swap a second (or third and so on if you purchase a few additional Nokia BP-4L Batteries)
The unit comes with a 4 blue LED charge/level indicator, a micro USB plug and the iPhone slips onto the case like a standard docking effort. Additionally the case includes a silver and a red anodized sleeve, giving you two color choices.
The size is also one of the smallest and least thick of all of the extended battery cases. Unlike the Mophie Juice case which has a flimsy Micro USB, (we’ve broken 2 so far) the ibattz connector is well protected and solid.
That is 3000Mah of additional power in two small industry standard batteries.
The case is also rather small since they designed around the Nokia BP-4L which is ultra-slim.
If you look on the internet, you can find Nokia BP-4L replacements in higher capacity, such as 1800Mah.
Last, you can swap batteries without the phone needed a reboot or any special consideration. the battery pack keeps the iPhone topped off first, so there is zero issue with adding in your second or third battery.
