IRVINE, Calif., April 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- wiPowerBand.com introduces the first wearable battery extender for the Apple Watch. A compact battery and wireless power transmitter is embedded in a sleek molded unit that fits under the Apple Watch, providing extended battery life and protection.
The wiPowerBand addresses one of the most common concerns about the Apple Watch: battery life. Current estimates show the wiPowerBand can nearly double the battery life of the Apple Watch through its unique patent pending design. The wiPowerBand device itself is charged using the Apple Lightning power cable; the same cable used to charge the iPhone thus eliminating the need to travel with multiple chargers and cables.
"This is the first battery product for the Apple Watch that allows the user to wear their favorite Apple Watch band and extend the watch's battery life," said Dr. Thomas Giannulli, serial entrepreneur and inventor of the device. "Users can also hot swap wiPowerBands to extend battery life for extended periods," noted Giannulli.
The wiPowerBand is available in 38 and 42 mm sizes and in several colors to accessorize the Apple Watch.
The company is accepting orders via its website at http://www.wiPowerband.com, with planned delivery to customers in May-June 2015. MSRP starts at $89.00 and offers an affordable and powerful way to extend the value of the Apple Watch.
