New iPhone case extends battery life

7 Dec 2009

A new protective case that extends the battery life of iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS devices by up to nine hours has been launched into the market.

Distributed in the Irish marketplace by CTC, the iPhone 3G/3GS FUEL is a protective case, carrying solution and extended battery life all in one. Available exclusively from O2 stores, it costs €59.

The re-chargeable battery pack will appeal to consumer or business users who access their iPhone for prolonged periods.

The announcement follows on from O2’s recent announcement of new pricing aimed at business users, including SMEs who want to take their business mobile.

“This is an ideal solution for someone who wants extra battery life from their iPhone or who has rushed out without their original charger,” commented Graham Doyle, director, CTC Ireland.
