LifeProof has unveiled the FRE Power waterbroof case at CES 2016 for the iPhone 6s Plus, enabling those with super-sized mobile devices to better protect their investments. Not only does the case protect the iPhone contained inside, but there's an additional source of power with the built-in battery pack. And to top it all off, there's no massive hump like there is on Apple's official accessory.
Since this is indeed a waterproof case we're looking at here, there's an IP-68 rating against water and dirt, allowing the case to withstand being submerged by up to 6.6 feet for an hour. Then there's the optional glass cover camera lens, and even a built-in screen protector that should let you use the iPhone display as normal. Did we mention the 3200mAh battery? That's included too.
The FRE Power will be available soon for $149.99 on LifeProof's official website and at select retailers. Are you interested in wrapping this durable case around your iPhone?

I chuckled at the "there's no massive hump like there is on Apple's official accessory." This case is HUGE! Sent from the iMore App
I'll reserve judgement until I see one in person, but that looks like it would make my 6s Plus the size of a walkie talkie or a tricorder! I guess it would be handy if I wanted to take it camping or something similar, but i wouldn't need or want it for day to day use.
Make it a Nüüd model, add a wallet case to the back and retractable power and headphones...wanna get nuts...LETS GET NUTS!!! Sent from the iMore App
it seems so heavy and so long. the waterproof Gundam metal case i bought from ipromarket.com is not as big as this one.
