Adding more protection and battery life to your smartphone

Techstination feature for Monday, September 22, 2014

Adding protection and more battery life to your smartphone.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Otterbox has been one of the best known brands for protective cases for smartphones.    It  also owns the LifeProof brand.   Now it is branching out into cases that provide a battery boost too with the Otterbox Resurgence.  The company’s Jordan Vater says it can give you more than double the power on an iPhone 5s…

“Quick push of a button kicks the case in.  And then we have an automatic switch off on it where you don’t have to watch to make sure that you’re turning your case off when your phone gets to 100 percent again.  It will actually turn itself off saving you that valuable power for later if you are a really heavy power user.  And then on top of that, one of the things that Otterbox is best known for is protection.  So not only do you have that additional power, but you’ve also got mil standard, tested, drop protection.”

Which has saved many a phone.  Also new are Alpha Glass screen protectors from Otterbox.   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
