A few days after Mophie announced plans to launch a rugged battery case for the iPhone 6, LifeProof has revealed a compeitor, the Fre Power, which is now available on the company's website for $129.99. Here's the quick description:
FRE Power's lithium ion battery boasts 2,600 mAh of power that engages with the press of a button. Smart charging technology gets the iPhone 6 to a 100 percent charge, then automatically stops – saving extra power for later when it's needed most. Plus, status LED lights show how much battery life is remaining on the case in 25 percent increments.
FRE Power is waterproof to 6.6 feet (2 meters) for one hour, drop proof up to 6.6 feet and is totally enclosed from dirt and snow when the case and all ports are sealed. A built-in screen protector helps keep the brilliant iPhone 6 display safe from scratches, yet allows for uninhibited touchscreen access. It meets military standards for drop and shock and offers industry-leading IP68 protection against solid and liquid ingress.
The LifeProof FRE Power will be available later via other online retailers.
