Super Charger extends iPhone battery life
USBfever has released two new products for the iPhone 3G and 3GS, the Super Charger battery extender and the 360-degree Swivel Stand. The Super Charger is a lithium-powered rechargeable battery, capable of extending a phone's talk or online time up to 8.5 hours, and audio playback up to 40 hours. Video and Wi-Fi ratings are listed at 11 and 10 hours, respectively.
The charger has a 3000mAh capacity, and weighs approximately 3.6oz. In addition to boosting battery life, it protects the bottom back-half of an iPhone, along with part of the sides. The device currently comes in black with a bundled USB cable; a white version is only available on e-mail request.
The Swivel Stand can grip iPhones, several BlackBerry models and the iPod touch. Objects can be oriented vertically or horizontally, and cables are managed through a small hole in the back. The stand is built from aluminum and uses a non-slip bottom.
Both products are available from USBfever.com, and are priced at $60 for the Super Charger and $28 for the Swivel Stand.
