Running Out of Juice? Check out ibattz Removable Battery Cases

Everyone I know with an iPhone is constantly complaining about running out of juice. I’m no exception. I finally threw in the towel and decided to get a removable battery case, so I can extend the life of my phone.

I read a number of online reviews, and the ibattz Mojo REFUEL and REFUEL ARMOR Removable Battery Cases came highly recommend, so I thought I’d start with them. I’m happy to say that they lived up to my expectations. The design is solid, and the battery case is light and slim. Taking the case on and off is a breeze. ibattz also improved Mojo’s battery, replacing last year’s 1700mAh replaceable batteries with 2200mAh batteries.
