LifeProof unveils fre Power, a waterproof battery case for iPhone 6

LifeProof, the maker of insanely protective waterproof cases, has outdone itself at CES 2015 in Las Vegas with the announcement of the LifeProof fre, a case that is both waterproof and packs an extra battery for more power throughout the day.

Like the original fre, the fre Power has been designed to protect your device against water, drops, dust and snow whilst being able to provide access to all its ports and buttons easily. The case comes with a screen protector and a 2600mAh battery, which effectively doubles the battery life of your iPhone 6. It makes use of Smart Charging to automatically stop charging your iPhone when it is fully charged.

I’m a little taken back that water and electricity are mixing here. The fre Power is said to be waterproof to 6.6 feet (2 meters) for one hour, drop proof up to 6.6 feet. Like other LifeProof cases, it’s also totally enclosed from dirt and snow when the case and all ports are sealed. “It meets military standards for shock and impact protection,” the company says.

“The addition of a waterproof power solution and universal accessory line take LifeProof’s industry-leading product lineup to a whole new level,” Pete Lindgren, LifeProof president and CEO, said. “fre Power and LifeActiv accessories allow you to harness the remarkable capabilities of the iPhone 6 and truly live without limits.”

LifeProof also announced a new accessory line-up.
