Deal of the Day – Protective Case w/ Built-in Battery for iPhone (AP1500)

For today’s “Deal of the Day” selection, there is a Ap1500 Protective Case with Built in Battery for iPhone. It will cost you 19.99 with free shipping, so you can’t really go wrong with it. I still remember about a year and a half ago paying more than $100 for Mophie…Those were the days…

Be aware that it will cover the iPhone’s port and replace it with a mini USB port (same as Mophie).┬áIn more than a year, I never removed my iPhone from the case except for cleaning it. My iPhone is also jailbroken, so when I multitask listening to NPR in the background, I need every ounce of power I an get.

Battery Cell: Lithium Polymer
Power Capacity: 1200 mAh @5V, doubles life of iPhone 3G
Sleek piano gloss finish with non-slip grips, dimensions: 4.7″ x 2.6″ x 0.8″, weight: 2.9 oz.
