The latest Mojo Refuel and Mojo Refuel Armor for iPhone 5 are already creating a loyal fan base with the highest capacity removable battery of 4400mAh. It has also recently been given the highest rating on iLounge.
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).
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.
