If you’re going to add bulk to your phone, you might as well put it to good use. Many companies are now adding extra juice to their rugged phone cases, increasing the durability and battery life of your iPhone. Here are three of our favorites.



Incipio offGRID ($79.99–89.99)

The offGrid comes in two models for the iPhone 6, the Express and Shine. Each comes with a 3,000mAh backup battery, giving you 120 percent more power, equivalent to 17 extra hours of talk time. The extra battery and protection don’t add too much bulk though, with the back of the cover just 7.7 millimeters away from the phone.



Lifeproof FRĒ Power ($79.99)

Lifeproof has been a longtime favorite for extremely rugged cases. Their latest model is an updated version of their FRĒ line, adding a 2,600mAh battery to the waterproof, dirt-proof, snow-proof and drop-proof case. Every port is left accessible, and the battery intelligently charges your phone to maximize efficiency.



Mophie H2PRO ($129.95)

Mophie on the other hand is known for their high-tech cases that add storage space and power. The H2PRO continues the tradition of the Mophie Juice Pack with a 2,740mAh battery housed in a case that is IP68 certified for protection against dust and water.
