At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Nyko Technologies (www.nyko.com) announced details about their new line of power accessories for the iPhone. The Los Angeles-based battery solutions expert is now expanding to offer power cases for the iPhone 6 and 6S.
The new products include the Power Shield case, coming in a variety of power capacities up to 3500 mAh, and the Power Shield Q case with Qi inductive wireless charging and 2200 mAh capacity. The Q Shield was also announced, which simply adds Qi inductive wireless charging capabilities to an iPhone 6 or 6S in a slim design.
The Power Shield for iPhone 6 and 6S is a charging case available with a battery capacity of 2500 mAh, 3000 mAh, and 3500 mAh, supporting more than double the usage time over the standard iPhone battery. The case is durable and streamlined, includes a 3.5-inch pass-through headphone adaptor, and features a light-up charge indicator to illustrate the amount of charge. The Power Shield is anticipated to ship this spring at an estimated manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $119.99. It can also be used with the Power Shield Dock, which is sold separately.
The Power Shield Dock is a drop-and-go charging station for an iPhone 6 or 6S capable of simultaneously charging the iPhone and the Power Shield. It features a dedicated AC power cord for faster charging than the standard iPhone cable. It’s also due in spring for an MSRP of $39.99.
The Power Shield Q is a Qi induction charging case with a built-in rechargable battery capacity of 2200 mAh which augments the iPhone 6 or 6S with wireless charging. The Power Shield can also be used as a power bank to charge other devices via the included USB charging cable. It’s anticipated to ship in Sspring for an MSRP of $119.99.
The Q Shield is an iPhone case that enables the phone to be charged wirelessly via Qi wireless technology. It will cost $59.99 when it ships (you guessed it) this spring.
