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.

  • Exclusive for iPhone 5: the exclusive myCharge Freedom cable system provides instant charging with no blockage of your smartphone speakers or headphone jack.

Fashion: The proprietary exoskeleton design of myCharge Freedom Powercase offers retail partners true product customization at a level never before experienced, allowing them to offer exclusive varieties of myCharge Freedom Powercase to their customers.
