Incase debuts Power Slider case for iPhone 3G


Incase has introduced its new Power Slider case for the iPhone 3G. Based on the company’s previous Slider Case, the Power Slider features an integrated lithium-ion polymer battery to provide added power to the iPhone. According to the company, the Power Slider can provide up to 330 hours of standby time, 26 hours of audio playback, up to 5 hours of 3G talk time or 10 hours over EDGE, up to 7 hours of video playback, and up to 5 hours of Internet use over 3G or 6 hours over Wi-Fi. When connected, power drains first from the Power Slider to help preserve the device’s internal battery, and a five-light LED indicator on the rear shows battery status and also shows when the case is in sync mode or charging. Included in the package is a custom USB 2.2 cable that allows for high capacity charging and data exchange. Incase’s Power Slider for iPhone 3G will be available this holiday season and will sell for $100.

I was at the Apple Store Fifth Avenue today and tried the case on my iphone 3G just to get a feel of things. The case, while doing its best to conceal the integrated battery was still a bit on the bulky side and looked more like a brick to me. Again, you will have to see this case in person and make a decision on your own. It had a military rugged like look to it which was very appealing on the other hand. So if you don’t care much about stylishness and are a heavy user of the iphone, this case will certainly add hours and hours of fun time with your iphone. It also had a very nice grip to it since it was made of hard shell plastic coated with a soft rubber.
Incase has done a very good job with this one, but I fell in love with their red incase slider which has a metallic red finish to it and is very sleek and sexy. Still, I might get this case anyways for when I’m on the road and need tons of juice. I rate it a 9 out of 10. A little bulky, but not that bad. Still very pleasing to look at.

I’ve had one for about a week now and it looks very good and quality is high…battery life is good but syncing with iTunes is problematic at best. It usually doesn’t work at all and you can throw away that nice iPhone dock as now my iphone has to sit on the desk with a USB cord plugged in to the bottom.

So…very unreliable sync, no dock and clunky USB port location don’t outweigh nice look and feel and improved battery life.

You should check the YouTube 20+ minutes review video by
“itsmemorpheus”. The sync option is toggled by the button on the back.
