Prong’s PWR case for iPhone 5/5s features a detachable battery pack with an integrated plug


Prong has just unveiled its new PWR case for iPhone 5/5s that offers an “all-in-one” power solution. This case will allow you to simultaneously charge your iPhone and a detachable battery pack using its integrated wall adapter. When the backup battery is removed, the iPhone is left with a clean bumper for minimal protection against drops and dings.

The PWR case features a 1,500mAh battery and will be available in black, white, blue-grey and white-pink. Currently, it’s available for preorder on Prong’s website at a special price of $65, but will jump up to $79.99 when the case is released this summer. Prong’s PWR case will be available on, Amazon, and Best Buy (older battery-less cases are here).

From the press release:

The Prong PWR Case includes a detachable backup battery and integrated plugs for charging in any outlet. The backup battery is easily detachable and can be recharged without any additional accessories while the smartphone remains with the user, safe in the inner-protective bumper. No matter how much someone uses their phone, they can have power all day with the Prong PWR case and their phone never has to leave their side. The battery can be detached and plugged into any outlet to be recharged whenever needed. Once the back-up battery is charged, it quickly reconnects to the back of the case and the phone can then be recharged while on the go.

“The Prong PWR Case will change the way that iPhone users recharge their phones as they will now always have a charger and extra battery with them, built directly into their case,” said Jesse Pliner, co-founder of Prong. “It’s never been easier to keep your phone charged while on the go and launching at Best Buy will help make it simple for consumers to get the Prong PWR Case this summer.”

Combining portability and practicality, the Prong PWR Case boasts a sleek, cutting edge design with a retractable A/C plug that folds flat when not in use. The case is highly durable and rugged, to protect the iPhone from damage. Engineered with advanced “Quick Charge Technology,” the case delivers a hyper-fast charge in the most portable form possible and provides power all day long to satisfy even the most demanding iPhone users. It also comes with a Micro USB port and included cable to recharge in a car, at a desk or anywhere with a USB outlet.

Prong originally started out on Kickstarter, successfully raising over $130,000 to bring its first PocketPlug case (available for $60) to the market. The PocketPlug case also has a built-in wall adapter, but doesn’t have the 1,500mAh backup battery found in the new PWR case. For more information or to preorder Prong’s PWR case, visit

    Good luck with that in the united kingdom…

      Or indeed anywhere else in the non-American world – don’t the makers realise there is a big world out there with different electricity sockets ?

      • Speaking of obvious realizations, have you stopped to consider they are a small company and may expand their offerings in phases. This is likely only phase 1. I don’t typically see small companies market internationally out of the gate. Let’s all just be patient…

      • Speaking of obvious realizations (two), do we realise that the US electricity sockets, which allow the “folding pins” plugs (NEMA standards), are much-much clever (in terms of portability/ ease of travel) compared to the rest of the standards in use??? On the other hand, I love the fact that some standards, such as the UK and the Australian ones, have switches on the sockets, for extra safety.
