Depending on how you use your device, it can give you upwards of 44 extra hours of audio, 11 hours of video or 9 hours of talk time.
What’s unique about the case, in addition to the power, is a proprietary Apple Lighting charging cable. The cable, built into the case, tucks away in the back when you are not using the additional battery power.

The top of the speaker has a microUSB port for charging, a clip to hang the speaker and a 3.5mm input port.
The speaker is designed with a specially developed water and stain resistant acoustic skin – not waterproof.
