SLXTreme 4, SLXTreme 5

to the extreme


Your battery life read 100 percent when you left the house, but all that texting and app use has taken its toll. It's not even evening and your battery is already down to 5 percent.

It doesn't matter if you're on the Greenbelt, out camping or in the desert shooting skeet: Running out of batteries curbs your access to your phone, text messages, email and social media--putting you in precisely the kind of situation you bought a cellphone to avoid in the first place.

Never fear, the Snow Lizard XTreme powered smartphone case is here.

The case is tough and waterproof up to a depth of 6 feet and contains a built-in power source that doubles the battery life of your phone. A bank of solar panels on the case's back trickles electricity back into the case battery when you're far from home.

No more will you live under the tyranny of power outlets or USB ports (or, at least you'll spend less time there).
