Win a Prong PWR Case
Anyone with an iPhone (or any smart phone) can agree that running out of power while on the go can be quite a nuisance. Lugging around a charger everywhere is impractical, and even a person with the best intentions to bring one can forget. Jesse Pliner and Lloyd Gladstone, co-founders of consumer electronics company Prong, came up with a solution to this dilemma -- and after a successful Kickstarter campaign, this new idea was born. It is called the Prong PWR Case for the iPhone 5/5s, and MacNN has one to give away to our readers before it is available in stores.
This durable polycarbonate case for the iPhone 5/5s is quite unlike any other case we have seen before. It features a battery to extend the life of an iPhone, and integrated charging prongs so it can be plugged directly into an outlet when it is running low. Also, it has a micro USB port in the event a wall plug is not available but a USB port is, and LED charge indicator to see the remaining charge. This case is currently available for pre-order from Prong for $65 in pink, black, white or blue. In August, shipments will be arriving in BestBuy stores, and the Prong will carry a retail price of $80.
The winner of this giveaway will receive their prize right around the same time chargers are shipped to BestBuy locations in August.
