PowerSkin Case for Galaxy S III Gives You a Beefier Battery

By - Source: PowerSkin | B 23 comments

Samsung's Galaxy S III finally gets some love in the battery-case department.

Although there are tons of different iPhone battery-case accessories out there, Android devices haven't seen quite as much love. Luckily for Samsung Galaxy S III owners, the skyrocketing sales of their device have prompted PowerSkin to create a case specially designed for the flagship smartphone.

According to the company, PowerSkin's latest case may be the first of its kind. Like most of the company's battery cases, the Galaxy S III case features a 1,500 mAh rechargeable battery, extending talk time by up to 2.83 hours or standby times by up to 97 hours. Smart Power Management features and an easy access on/off button allow users to get the most of their extra battery.

The case also features battery indicator LEDs that keep users informed of charging status or battery levels. The company also states that its silicon-based case doesn't interfere with the Galaxy S III's NFC capabilities. As far as smartphone cases go, the $79.99 case is definitely on the pricier side of things, but if you aren't a fan of swapping batteries out or carrying around portable chargers, PowerSkin's case provides a seamless way to enhance your battery life.

    Tha;s cos Android phones have this unheard of feature where you have access to the battery, and can even replace it with a fresh one when it's empty.Turns out batteries don't actually need to be fused with your phones case to operate.

    For a few bucks, you can buy another battery to double your phones "on the road" life.

    Having said that, if it wasn't $80 I might get this over an extra battery....

    Very much needed. My mom's S3 dies often even with Easy Battery Saver put into Intelligent mode.

    But.. The battery is removeable on the S3.. Why a case that charges the battery?
    With all that extra waistline, you could've had a replacement back+battery with a much larger battery instead...

    Currently using Onite 4500 mAh battery in my S3 which you can buy for 10-20 dollars depending on where you buy it from. The pros of Android phones are removable batteries so take advantage of it! I unplug my phone from the charger around 7 AM, use my phone to listen to music while I work out, talk to people, text, browse, etc. I still have around 40-50% battery remaining at 11PM before I plug it back into charge mode.

    because an android phone is an angel in a sex body but the iphone is all about a ugly shemale needs to shield up with tons of expensive cloths and make up to cover up how gay it was.

    Nice, now make one for the DROID RAZR MAXX and a Vehicle Dock that fits. That would seriously annihilate the competition if all you're concerned about is battery life. The MAXX already destroys every other phone available in this aspect and should be the new standard for battery life.

    Why buy this? Just buy a big ole extended battery. I recently got one for the droid charge and it rocks, never goes dead during the day.

    Lol i have a samsung galaxy player (which i know no one has ever heard of) and I bought a second battery and cheap rubber case for it for under $10 ($7 batter $2.50 case). And the battery already lasts for 6 hours streaming netflix over wifi and transmitting audio over bluetooth.

    Is that all you can do is bitch bitch bitch about a product? Did it ever occur to you that some people don't want to carry around an "extra" battery which requires them to remove the old battery and have to wait 5 minutes to power it back on? Did you? Huh? Huh? ....

    WTF!

    Well, I found, for $11 shipped on Ebay, 3 new aftermarket batteries for a Galaxy S3 plus a wall charger that you put a battery into. I think Ebay is where any reasonable person would go for more battery life!

    These are not too dissimilar to the Mophie Juicepacks for the iPhone. I may consider one at some point for my slick new SGS3.

    Takes about 5~10 seconds to powerup an S3 or other modern phones.

    I don't know what kind of phones you‘ve had but me thinks you're exaggerating a bit.

    Takes the iPhone 3GS about 3 minutes to boot if you've turned it off. Very frustrating.
