iBattz offers a perpetual solution to a perpetual problem

If there's one constant, it's change. And the more things change, the more the stay the same! Case in point, the new iPhone 5s. With all the new bells and whistles, like the 64bit CPU, the slow motion camera, and the Touch ID fingerprint reader, Apple has had to simultaneously enhance battery technology to keep pace. This allows Apple to maintain battery life, despite the increased demands of the new hardware. But I'm not satisfied with that. Imagine if Apple could keep the hardware unchanged, and just apply that new battery technology to the existing device. They could double the battery life!

Instead, it's all about new battery-hungry features, with the same battery life. However, iBattz has a solution. Like many other vendors, they offer a battery case for the iPhone, but they have a twist. Unlike other battery cases, the battery in the iBattz Mojo Refuel case ($74.95) is removable! This allows you to maintain multiple spare charged batteries for theoretically unlimited power! And isn't unlimited power what we all want?

The best part is, these are not hard-to-find, proprietary batteries. iBattz has adopted the standard 2200mAh i9300 batteries found in Android phones. Those batteries are $15, or for $25 you can get a spare battery and USB charger. In theory, you could keep a stash of pre-charged batteries and be ready for anything!
