As you know, OtterBox makes a myriad of smartphone cases for a living. The Fort Collins, Colorado based firm is perhaps best known for using military-grade rugged technology that offers exceptional protection for your devices in the harshest of environments.

They produce wallet caseswaterproof cases with Touch ID support (based on their acquisition of fellow case maker LifeProof) and everything in between. Their Defender and Symmetry cases, for instance have received pretty rave reviews.

Today, OtterBox is expanding its family of Power Cases with the addition of a new Resurgence series which combines more than two times the battery power for your device with OtterBox’s trusted protection…

The $99.95 case is billed as a single solution to a two-fold problem: the iPhone’s battery performance and the proneness of its screen to damage from drops and shock. To protect your device from damage, the case employs a two-piece design with military-grade drop defense and shock absorption.

The iPhone 5/5s case has a built-in 2,000 mAh lithium ion battery which delivers more than two times the battery power. Folks who depend on their iPhone all day long will no doubt appreciate not having to frantically hunt for a charger or power outlet halfway through their day.

Here’s a quick video overview of the Resurgence series.

The case uses OtterBox’s own auto-stop charge technology to prevent the built-in battery pack from charging the iPhone’s battery past the 100 percent mark.

Resurgence features exclusive auto-stop charge technology. By shutting the case off once your phone reaches 100% charge, this iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s battery case saves power for later. When you need it most.

Other perks include support for both wired and wireless syncing without removing the case and a headphone jack extender which doubles as a headphone cord keeper.

Last but not least, there’s a handy LED on the front of the case – as illustrated above – to display the power status in 25 percent increments.

The Resurgence Power Case is available in Black, Glacier, Teal Shimmer and Satin Rose styling. You can pre-order yours for $99.95 over at the OtterBox webstore.

    Looks cheap and kind of bulky compared to the morphie juice packs.

    Why do they always have to be so bulky?!?

    • diggitydang

      Because there’s a, uhhhh… a, ya know, BATTERY in it?? hahahah… no, but I get your point… I stick with the Juice Pack Helium… gives me enough extra battery to get me through the day but doesn’t add as much bulk as the bigger ones. I actually like the added weight and size of the Helium though – for me, it makes it easier to hold (I might be in the minority on that though!).

    Looks good but useless since iphone 6 is right around the corner and this case def won’t fit it. Now if this would have at least came out when the iPhone 5 came out or even the 5s you could have got your money’s worth

      Who’s to say they don’t have one for the iPhone 6 yet and they are just not allowed to talk about it?

  • Johnny

    I might get it. Don’t have to worry about battery while playing Age of Warring Empires. Plus ios 8 battery is horrible.

    Looks bulky and I prefer my RAVPower 3000mAh external battery pack which is more portable and can charge different devices.
