OtterBox has today revealed its Resurgence power case for the iPhone 6 at CES 2015. The company made its first foray into the iPhone power case market with the Resurgence for iPhone 5/5s, so it only seems fitting for the company to continue iterating on the case. OtterBox touts that the Resurgence for iPhone 6 doubles the battery life of the smartphone, while also offering military grade drop protection.
The Resurgence case packs 2600mAh of battery power and utilizes an auto-stop functionality that automatically turns off the case once the device has reached a full charge. The case is made up of a polycarbonate material that improves impact resistance and makes the device better protected for drops and dumps. The case was tested to meet MIL STD 810G-516.6, which drop the device on all faces, edges, and corners from four feet.
With the Resurgence case on the iPhone 6, you charge the device with an included microUSB cable. Since the case adds length to the iPhone 6 at the bottom, OtterBox also includes a headphone jack extender cable.
OtterBox made no mention of a Resurgence case for the iPhone 6 Plus, unfortunately. Pricing and availability for the iPhone 6 Resurgence power case is also unclear at this point. Although, the iPhone 5/5s case launched at $99, so presumably we’d expect roughly the same this time around.
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — OtterBox, the No. 1 most-trusted brand for smartphone protection, gives a sneak peek of upcoming innovations at Pepcom! Digital Experience @ CES 2015.* At this show before the show, OtterBox will go beyond protection, highlighting the latest technology and accessories for smartphones and tablets.1
OtterBox Resurgence Power Case for iPhone 6 is newly designed and allows users to unplug and go further with two-times the battery life of the device and military-grade drop protection.
“Resurgence is one of the most innovative product lines we’ve ever released,” said President and CEO Pete Lindgren. “At CES, we’ll preview the year ahead with fresh designs that incorporate new technology, all in line with our legacy of engineered confidence and trusted protection.”
Resurgence boasts 2,600 milliamp hours (mAh) of battery power, providing more than two-times the battery life of the iPhone 6. The two-piece snap design simplifies case assembly and removal. Resurgence is made up of a specially formulated polycarbonate to improve impact resistance and absorb energy from drops and bumps. The case is rigorously tested to meet MIL STD 810G-516.6, a third-party test that drops the case on all faces, edges and corners from four feet.2 The new design incorporates compact advanced circuitry, resulting in a smaller profile.
The iPhone 6 battery case utilizes auto-stop technology, which conveniently shuts off the case when the phone has reached full charge, saving extra battery for later. Resurgence supports both wired and wireless syncing without removing the case and includes a headphone jack extender.
Resurgence Power Case for iPhone 6 will be on display at Pepcom! Digital Experience @ CES on Jan. 5 and on the CES show floor in North Hall Booth No. 4727. For pricing, availability and more information on OtterBox or Resurgence Power Case, visit otterbox.com.
