See there? Over those hills where the robin-egg sky meets the plains of waving wheat? Look at the highway cutting a black line under a family car whizzing along with its hubcaps gleaming. There’s something strapped to the roof - a kayak maybe? They’re on vacation! Isn’t it sweet? Well, it could be, but they forgot their iPhone backup battery. Let’s zoom in so we can hear:
Are we there yet?
I told you already, two more hours to go.
Are you lost, dear?
Shhh. I didn’t expect to have to power off the GPS before we got there!
Dad, can you look on your iPhone for the nearest rest stop? I have to go potty.
[giggle] You said “potty!”
Your mother gobbled the power playing Draw Something. Phone’s almost dead.
I did not! You forgot to charge it last night!
Can I play Angry Birds after we go potty?
Didn’t you hear me? The battery is dying. Try playing I Spy.
I spy, with my little eye, a pimple on my sister’s face.
Shut up! Moooom! I need to call Stacy! More...

There are a whole lot of things you can do in 2 hours but finding a way to extend the battery on your iPhone may not be one that comes to mind first. With 2 hours, you could:
- Watch an entire blockbuster movie
- Beat the record for fastest marathon by three minutes
- Get a full cycle of REM sleep
- Play nine holes of golf
- Take the Mensa admission test
- Listen to “Bohemian Rhapsody” 20 times
In 2 hours you can even talk on your mobile phone after its internal battery has died – seriously! It just takes a little forethought and the right tool to extend your phone’s usability.
Now then, if you’re looking to extend the battery on iPhone 4S, you know that type of power doesn’t come with the phone. They do come wherever Rayovac products are sold. Our PS71 External Battery Back Up is exactly what you need to squeeze lots more talk time out of your phone when you’re on-the-go. This external battery is super compact, so it’s super portable. Just pop it into your purse, glove compartment, or even coat pocket, and you’re golden. The Lithium CR123A battery that stores the device’s superpowers is replaceable, so you can use the PS71 over and over again. (The battery actually has a whopping 10-year storage life.)

There’s probably never going to be an emergency game of ‘Words with Friends’ or a critical moment at which you need to “like” someone’s picture on Facebook that requires immediate power for the best battery for iPhone. But when it comes to things like calling 911, doing a phone interview for a new job, or snapping and sharing pictures of your new baby’s first moments of life, you really can’t afford to find your phone battery near death.
If you’ve ever found yourself without iPhone power in a critical moment, you know your phone is really so much more than a toy. That’s why you need to be asking yourself not just what the best battery for iPhone users is, but also what the best portable power sources are – for all your mobile devices. We’ve got a few solutions that can save the day.
- Our PS68 On-The-Go Charger is the most portable of our solutions and can revive any Apple or micro-USB device while on the go. It holds a charge for up to 12 months and provides 60 minutes of talk time.
- Our PS71 External Battery Back Up is an awesome external iPhone battery. It’s compatible with all Apple 30-pin connected devices and is able to provide up to 2 hours of extra talk time.
- Our PS73 Portable USB Charger is the solution if you want extreme portable recharging capability. It provides a full charge – up to 7 hours of talk time – and is compatible with all USB-connector devices.
Angry Birds, status updates, online shopping – these are the light and fluffy side of owning an iPhone. They can stand to wait until you get home to recharge. But for the moments that really make and break life, you can’t afford to be without backup power. Don’t live at the whim of your phone battery. Do get that best battery for iPhone users, but don’t forget to buy the backup power as your safety net.

Hey, iPhone users, wouldn’t it be great if you could just tell Siri, “charge iPhone battery,” and your phone would be all juiced up again? She can do a lot for you but she can’t do everything. In fact, your battery is the elixir of life for Siri. She dies when it dies. Never fear! With our new PS73 Portable USB Charger you can revive her – and fully recharge your phone – while on the go.
The PS73 Portable USB Charger is compatible with all USB-connected devices and provides up to 7 hours of instant mobile power using four AA alkaline batteries. That’s a full charge you can bring with you anywhere. This must-have gadget effectively doubles the amount of time you can use your phone when away from an electrical source. Charge your phone on an airplane. Charge it while you’re camping. Heck, charge it on the top of Everest or the middle of the Sahara if you want.
Like jumper cables for your car, the PS73 is a must-have for anyone who doesn’t want to find themselves in a world of hurt when their mobile device is running on fumes. It makes a great gift for Father’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries, or even for yours truly.
