LifeProof Unveils 'FRĒ Power' Waterproof Battery Case for iPhone 6s

Popular rugged case manufacturer LifeProof today revealed its newest protective offering for the iPhone 6s, the FRĒ Power, which promises to double the battery life of the smartphone while providing the expected protection the brand's previous products have afforded. LifeProof says the new case is fully waterproof and will let users take Live Photos and 4K videos "in almost every environment."

"We challenge our engineers to defy what is expected and they've gone well beyond that with our waterproof iPhone 6s battery case," said LifeProof President and CEO Pete Lindgren. "FR? Power provides protection and power so you can adventure further than ever before. The combination of iPhone 6s Live Photos and 4k video with double the battery life from FRĒ Power lets you capture better content and keep shooting longer than ever before."
The source of the FRĒ Power comes from a built-in 2,600 mAh lithium ion battery, which LifeProof says provides "2x battery capacity" over the normal life of the iPhone 6s. On the outside, the case will protect from water, drop damage, dirt, and snow, the usual tenants of the LifeProof line. The company also ensures that the case's built-in scratch protection screen allows uninhibited access to the new features of the iPhone 6s, like 3D Touch and the front-facing retina flash.

Those interested can visit LifeProof's official website to pre-order the $129.99 FRĒ Power iPhone 6s case, which has an estimated in-stock launch date of Friday, November 6. The color options for the battery case include Blacktop, Base Jump Blue, and Avalanche, although the last two have no estimated release date. The new case is also available for last year's iPhone 6, but the company hasn't announced support for the iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6s Plus.

Where are the battery cases that charge with lightning ports? I know apple used to restrict 3rd party companies from making lightning ports but I thought they were supposed to allow them to start using them?

two most important things not mentioned:

1. How do you charge it? I will not have micro-USB in my life ever again.

2. What is the voice quality like? Most waterproof cases muffle the microphone so badly it's impossible to have a pleasant conversation without removing the phone from the case.

Until I see reviews stating you don't sound muffled to the recipient, Lifeproof isn't an via option for me. The last Lifeproof case I had that was waterproof (with 2 replacements), people kept saying it was hard to hear me. Shame, since this would be a great case to have...
