Techstination feature for Monday, September 14, 2009

Adding battery life to the iPhone. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. The versatility of Apple's iPhone with thousands of apps is what has made the devices so popularity. But it also means that if you have're doing a lot more than talking...and that can be a big drain on battery life. That's opened the door for add ons that can extend battery life. One of the best is from a company called Mophie, which is out with the juice pack air. It is a second battery...masquerading in a hard shell case. Marketing director Ross Howe...

" It's actually the world's thinnest battery for the iPhone. It has a 12 hundred milliamp battery with a four LED charge indicator on the back. And the other thing we did is we added a micro USB port which syncs to iTunes. "

It extends standby time up to 270 hours...and 3G talk or Internet use time up to 4 and a half hours. The price...about 80 dollars. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
