More apps need more power!

There are apps for everything!  For me, I have over 5 Disney apps on my iPhone, one for wait times, one for hours and one to let me know where I am LOL.  That means when I am at a Disney park my phone is on constantly!  I do chuckle around 5 or 6:00pm when I hear people talking about turning their phones off, or when I see people battling for a power outlet to get a quick charge on their phones.

Around 5 or 6:00pm I still have 100% battery life thanks to two great products.  PowerSkin and Odoyo manufacture cell phone cases with a built in spare battery giving you the power you need throughout the entire day and extra magic hours!

Odoyo (www.odoyo.com) gives you options for the extra battery life based on your usage.  For heavy iPhone users like myself, I use the Power+Shell EX- Saturn which features a built-in 2200mAh high capacity rechargeable battery!  That is far more powerful than the standard 1440mAh battery in the iPhone 5.  In addition to the extended battery life, the Power+Shell EX-Saturn also protects your iPhone.  A cool little feature is it’s “kickstand” that allows you to watch videos or movies hands free.

The PowerSkin (www.power-skin.com) has a thinner design and features a 1500 mAh battery.  I have been using the PowerSkin for years with my iPhone 4 (http://gottahavegadget.com/powerskin/) and was extremely happy to see some upgrades for the iPhone 5.  The 1500mAh battery gives you up to 70% more talk time and standby Time.PowerShell-EX-Black-2-iphone-case

So if you are a heavy cell phone user or even a casual cell phone user these cases will cut down your search for power for that late afternoon charge!  Both units have a micro-usb charger that charges both the case and phone at the same time.  In addition to the iPhone cases, each manufacturer offers a variety of cases for other manufacturers.  Both the Odoyo and PowerSkin live up to the name of a Gotta Have Gadget!
