Win one of five iPhone Spyder battery cases

May 19, 2014

After four iPhone breaks and countless battery deaths in the middle of important stuff like tweeting and Instagramming (and emailing and calling, naturally) the Spyder battery case is the second-best thing to my phone itself.

And because it’s so cool, the iStore is giving away five this week, which you want because:


20130331-i5d 205
  • It roughly doubles the battery life of your iPhone 5 or 5S, adding around 8 hours of talk time, 11 hours of video playback, or 44 hours of audio
  • It has a front edge to help protect the touchscreen
  • It’s thin and lightweight
  • It has a battery level indicator
  • It allows access to all the controls on your phone
  • On/off button lets you control the power
  • Impact-resistant polycarbonate body with satin rubber finish

The Spyder iPhone battery is available from iStores for around R1299. To see iStore deals and happenings, follow the iStore on Facebook here.

To enter to win one of five Spyder battery cases:

Simply comment below, and you’ll be entered into the draw. Please note that this giveaway is open to South African residents only. The competition closes on Friday 23 May at 9am, after which the winners will be announced on the Rattle and Mum Facebook page, and then emailed. The prize cannot be exchanged for cash, is not transferable, and fits iPhone 5 and 5S phones only.

    This is such an awesome gadget! I always end up running out of battery life as I’m always tweeting or posting to FB or Instagramming and I’ve been on the hunt for something like this since forever. And its usually at the cool gaming or geek events that my phone dies on me! Please please please pick me for this one 😀

    The perfect solution for domestic bliss, my Mrs is so busy between meetings during the day that her battery is often flat by 4 pm when I need to call her and ask her, what I can cook for supper or what time I can run a bath for her or what wine I should buy. I am holding thumbs and crossing fingers for this perfect domestic solution enabler 🙂

    I’ll be finally getting a new phone after 4 years( I donated my last upgrade) and I’ve decided on the iPhone 5s. Even though I’ll only be getting it on June I’ve already been shopping around for cases and this would be the best prize ever.
