myCharge Freedom Powercase Series

Today's smartphones are an extension of our personalities, allowing us to stay in touch with friends and family, take pictures, listen to music, play games - to live our lives. For many people, when their battery dies, for all intents and purposes they cease to exist...until they've recharged.

The new myCharge Freedom Powercase Series embodies the highest level of innovation in portable charging cases - the perfect balance between protection, function and fashion.

An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
