If Mad Max ever used a phone case, it might be Mophie’s new H2PRO, which Mophie says “exceeds military standards for protection.” That means it can take a nice pile drive to the noggin and keep on ticking. And if you’re accidentally pushed into the pool with your iPhone 6 still in your pocket, the H2PRO’s IP68 rating will keep it dry. Just like Mad Max’s nightmarish desert wasteland.
To make sure we understood that, yes, the H2PRO is capable of withstanding the elements, Mophie sent us a care package designed to push the case to its limits. Channeling our inner child, we dutifully obliged by dousing the H2PRO in mud, water, sand, sawdust, flour, water and even a bit of spaghetti-Os, which still smelled good after hours of sitting in a glass vial. (I know, disgusting.)
In addition to its superhero-level Military Standard 810G protection, the H2PRO’s 2750mAh battery is powerful enough to provide the iPhone 6 with 100 percent of extra juice—and then some. That means your deep sea fishing trip won’t be ruined by a dead phone. We all know a dead phone means you can’t snap a picture of that 400 pound Marlin you caught, and therefore nobody will believe you.
The best part about the H2PRO is that the case’s flexible, scratch-resistant membrane still allows for full functionality—even Touch ID still works. That means you can continue to use your phone as your normally would. And the case is surprisingly svelte at just 0.69 inches, which is barely thicker than a stack of playing cards.
Whether you’re at the beach, hiking in the Rockies, or simply frolicking through a muddy swamp, Mophie’s H2PRO is more than capable of providing protection and extra battery. This could be great to bring along on the Muir trail, which I hear is treacherous and life changing.
