more talk with less bulk
offender, but every improvement helps, no? — New York Times Special Features PHONE cases with built-in batteries are certainly a great way to keep your handset running during marathon phone sessions.
One of the problems with most of these cases, however, is that a normally svelte smart phone starts to look like Michael Douglas’ cellphone in the first Wall Street movie (brick-size, in other words).
Exogear has created a battery pack for the iPhone that, at 57g and roughly half the thickness of the iPhone, claims to be the thinnest, lightest battery case for an iPhone 4.
The company says the case, called the Exolife, will double an iPhone’s running time, adding as much as an additional seven hours of talk time and 300 hours of extra standby time. Because it is also a barrier between your hand and the external antenna that surrounds much of the iPhone, it also can help decrease dropped calls.
The Exolife for the iPhone 4 is US$90 (RM280) from Exogear. — New York Times Special Features ++++ www.exogear.com
