Power Slider features a low profile, complementary design and innovative functionality, serving as both a case and power solution. A custom engineered lithium-ion polymer battery with efficient circuitry was created for Power Slider to allow for a slim design and maximum power output. The optimized power management system provides continuous charge to the internal battery of iPhone 3G. When in use, power drains first from Power Slider so that the device's internal battery remains fully charged and is only depleted once the battery of Power Slider has been drained.
"We developed Power Slider for the large and growing community of iPhone 3G users that utilize the device to its full extent as an all-in-one communication and entertainment tool and, as a result, find themselves in need of extended battery life," states Erik Wahlstrom, President and CEO of Incase. "Power Slider more than doubles the battery life of iPhone 3G in the form of a hardshell protective case, in addition to allowing for syncing and charging without removing the device. These features create a seamless iPhone user experience that enable users to continue to take full advantage of the iPhone 3G as the platform continues to grow in its scope and utility."
An integrated sync mode allows Power Slider users to easily sync and charge their devices while iPhone 3G is in Power Slider. A five-light LED battery status indicator gauges battery life and also denotes sync mode and charging. Included with every Power Slider is a custom USB 2.2 cable that allows for high capacity charging and data exchange for optimal charging and syncing. Additionally, Power Slider is compatible with all USB charging ports that provide 5V at 1A output.
Power Slider provides the best in hardshell protection and extended battery life for iPhone 3G. The design of Power Slider is an evolution of the Slider Case, one of the most popular iPhone cases by Incase. Power Slider maintains the durable, lightweight hardshell construction of the Slider Case and features soft-touch coating for added grip and durability.
Certified by the Apple(R) "Works with iPhone" program, Power Slider has been designed to connect specifically to iPhone 3G and meet Apple's performance standards.
