Continuous innovation has led ibattz to bring to Kickstarter, the world’s first waterproof removable battery case. This Ultimate protection allows users to use their iPhone 5 with extended battery under water to a depth of 3 meter (9.842 feet). 

All of ibattz’s products are Apple MFI certified and the widely acclaimed Mojo Classic for iPhone 4/4S, Mojo Refuel for iPhone 5 and Battstation Tough Pro Dual 7800mAh are already available on SAMs Club and online at store.ibattz.com and Amazon. 

To Waterproof the Mojo Refuel battery case, the slimmest enclosure (20 mm) is designed with the help from a partner factory that has more than a decade of experience producing underwater DV cameras. After a few rounds of samples, the final sample is perfected with IPX8 certification for waterproofing up to 3 meters (9.842 feet). 

The Technology 

ibattz Mojo Refuel Aqua, which is a removable battery case for iPhone 5 with interchangeable 2200mAh I9300 battery is Apple MFI certified. I9300 is Samsung S3 compatible battery and it is same form factor as I9500 Samsung S4 battery. 

The current waterproof cases in the market usually come with a clasp on sealing with a rubber gasket, with another clasp at the bottom. 

The disadvantage is that, it is difficult to remove the waterproof case. With constant removal of case, it will affect the integrity of the clasp on structure and in time, result in water seepage. These cases are also not equipped with a back up battery. 

ibattz Mojo Refuel Aqua case uses the patented zip seal lock technology with precision engineering to achieve complete waterproofing. 

The advantage of the zip seal lock technology is that it is easier for constant removal and without having to worry about water seepage. There will be no problem of having to replace worn out parts, which is a problem for many existing products.  

Both the zip seal lock technology and rotating dial mute switch design are patented to provide best design and durability.

During the Kickstarter Campaign

We will continue testing and finalize the production process. The campaign will last for 30 days.

If we are funded

We will start production and will ship the products within 45 days after funded to all supporters with products listed for amount pledged.

Manufacturing Plan and Timeline

We already have a contract manufacturer in Shenzen which specializes in underwater DV cameras to manufacture the Waterproof Case. Your funds will be used to pay for tooling as well as for our batch manufacturing. 

We hope for enough support from the community to make this impossible idea of charging your iPhone 5 underwater a reality.

Here are some dates that we have agreed on with them where production is concerned and this should help you to further appreciate our manufacturing timeline:

• After 30 days project funded - Testing on final production prototypes complete

• 1 week after project funded – Start Mold for production

• 20 days after project funded - First batch to be manufactured for backers

• 45 days after project funded – First batch of production completes to be shipped to backers

Risks and challenges

As we have committed to the mold and are undergoing testing now, we are confident with your support, the project for first production will be ready for delivery from November after funding ends.
