Tekkeon (http://www.tekkeon.com) has unveiled
myPower for iPhone, a leather sleeve that
purportedly doubles the iPhone battery life while
protecting the iPhone from everyday wear and
tear. A rechargeable, reliable and safe lithium
polymer battery is hidden within the sleeve.
What’s more myPower also acts as a dock, enabling
users to automatically sync and charge iPhone. It
sports a capacity indicator that provides the
power level in the battery. The battery can be
charged via a computer, or USB power adapter. In
the latter case the iPhone and myPower for iPhone
can be charged simultaneously.
myPower for iPhone includes an USB cable for
connection to a computer or USB power adapter,
and myGuardä screen protector for iPhone 3G. The
manufacturer’s suggested retail price is
US$69.95. Pre-orders for this product are being
accepted on the Tekkeon web site, and will begin
shipping on Dec. 15.
