The iPhone 5′s battery life isn’t bad, but if you want to use your phone all day or last two full days with moderate use, then the standard battery isn’t going to cut it. Because the iPhone’s battery isn’t removable, there’s only one thing for it – a convenient portable charger that’ll drastically extend your battery life.
One such charger is the PowerSkin Pop’n, an external extended battery that attaches firmly to your iPhone 5 using suction cups. With an extra 2,000 mAh of battery power on tap, you’ll be able to more than double the battery life of your phone. That means you’ll be able to get around 19 hours of 3G talk time, nearly 24 hours of web browsing or over 24 hours of video playback. And all of this power is contained within a case that’s thinner than 10 millimetres and weighs only 86 grams.
The PowerSkin Pop’n has a unique advantage over other extended batteries for the iPhone 5 – it can attach to a range of iPhone 5 cases just as easily as the iPhone 5 itself, allowing a much wider range of compatibility than you’d get with a standard battery case. This means your phone stays protected and looking unique while it’s being charged.

The iPhone 5 and iPad Mini are top of the line devices, but they still suffer from a common problem – their integrated speakers point away from you and lack power, making them quiet, tinny and even harsh. While you can pick up portable Bluetooth speakers to get louder and better sounding music, these speakers need regular charging, take up space and can be expensive. Now, the designers at Kubxlab have produced a simpler solution: the Ampjacket case for the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini.
The Ampjacket iPhone 5 cover includes specially grooved sound channels that enhance and maximise any sound, amplifying your iPhone’s audio output without needing batteries or recharging. Take a look at the video below to see how it works for yourself:
The lightweight case will protect your phone too, with its hardened TPU material proving an effective barrier against scratches and minor impacts. It also includes cutouts wherever necessary, ensuring that the camera, buttons and ports remain fully accessible.
The Ampjacket is available now for the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini. If you’d like to benefit from louder music and calls, we’d encourage you to have a look at the Ampjacket! For more information and photographs of each, check out the product pages linked below.

Today, we’re going to be looking at one of the most well respected iPhone 5 cases in the Mobile Fun arsenal: The Draco Design Aluminium Bumper.
So what makes this Draco bumper so popular? Well, as the name suggests these bumpers are made of aircraft-grade aluminium, a much stronger material than that of 99% of cases on the market. Metal adds an incredible amount of ridigity to your phone, ensuring that it can’t be crushed or smashed. It’s pretty effective at absorbing impacts too – the Draco Design bumper is drop-tested for maximum resistance to accidental knocks and drops. And as it’s a bumper, this case doesn’t get in the way of you using your phone – the back and screen remain fully accessible, while buttons and ports remain completely usable.
The Draco bumper for the iPhone 5 looks fantastic too. The case’s sculpted metal construction folds perfectly around the iPhone 5, ensuring a tight fit through a couple of tiny screws. It’s available in five different colours to suit your style – red, black, astro silver, graphite grey and midnight blue.
This iPhone 5 metal case has received 65 reviews on our site, with the vast majority being four and five stars. Of course, it’s not just customers that think the Draco Design bumper is forward thinking – in fact, it won a Reddot international design award in 2012.

The BookBook is one of the most popular and highly rated cases for the iPhone 4 and 4S of all time, and now the BookBook is finally available as a case for the iPhone 5.
If you haven’t heard of the BookBook before, let me fill you in. This premium case protects and disguises your iPhone 5 with the look and feel of a pocket-sized leather-bound book. The beautiful design and hand distressed leather produces a look unmatched by any other iPhone case on the market.
The BookBook is practical too. Inside, you’ll find two slots – one on the left for your photo ID and credit cards, and one on the right for your iPhone. You rarely leave home without your phone and your wallet, and with the BookBook they’ll be in one place.
The BookBook also provides considerable protection – the genuine leather construction ensures that your iPhone 5 won’t be scratched or scuffed, and even drops or knocks will be dissipated away from your iPhone 5.
Even with all this protection, it’s still easy to access your iPhone – once opened, there’s no frame or anything else in the way of the buttons and ports. There’s also a cutout for the camera on the back, so you can still take photographs as easily as you could before.
The BookBook for the iPhone 5 is shipping now from Mobile Fun in Black – we’ll have a brown version available later too.
For the latest pricing and availability information, as well as additional photos of the BookBook, please check out the product page linked below.

What the heck is a Bubblescope 360? It’s a crazy 360° camera attachment for the iPhone 5, allowing you to take pictures that you otherwise would have never thought possible.
The Bubblescope is made of two joined parts – a case for the iPhone 5 and the camera attachment itself. The camera attachment rotates between portrait and landscape orientations, allowing you to take 360° images regardless of which way you’re using your phone. The tubular lens accessory fits right over the original iPhone 5 lens, using precision glass optics to ensure the best possible image quality.
Pictures are taken using the BubblePix app, which is available for free using a code in the retail box of the Bubblescope 360. The app hooks into a social network for these images, allowing you to easily share your images with family and friends or view the images others have taken using the same kit.
Of course, the case isn’t just to hold the lens accessory in place. It’s also a tough yet slim-fitting case made from a durable injection moulded plastic that’ll keep your iPhone 5 in good condition. You’ll be protected against scratches and minor impacts too. The case includes all of the cutouts you need to ensure full functionality of your iPhone 5 – you don’t need to take the case off in order to charge your phone or access the buttons.
The Bubblescope is the perfect next step for an aspiring iPhone photographer, allowing for the creation of unique and beautiful images. Whether you’re capturing the hustle and bustle of the city or the solitary beauty of the wilds, you’ll be pleased with how well these pictures turn out.
