IPowerUp provides an entire series of cases, combining protective case with USB charging also adds a 1700mah battery – effectively doubling the range adding 6-8 hours of use time. Other models offer pockets for drivers license or credit card, or FM modulator that automatically selects an unused channel in home or auto. Charge status is displayed directly on most models, as well as integrated solar charging to allow the device to recharge indoors or out, adding about 17 minutes of talk time for every hour in the sun.
iPowerUp also makes a Bluetooth audio amplifier and a DLP Micro-Projector that also has charging capabilities.
