OtterBox is adding a new collection of protective cases to its accessory lineup today with the introduction of its new Resurgence series. The Resurgence case is similar in concept to other battery pack case offerings from Mophie and similar case makers, but the Resurgence iPhone case boasts Military-rated drop protection (MIL STD 810G-516.6) as you would expect from an OtterBox case.

Superior protection isn’t the only extra benefit to OtterBox’s charing case. The 2,000 milliamp hour nominal lithium ion battery doubles your iPhone battery usage, and OtterBox says the Resurgence case will automatically stop charging your iPhone when your battery reaches full capacity.

The iPhone 5s battery case utilizes auto-stop technology, which conveniently shuts off the case when the phone has reached a full charge, saving extra battery power for later and eliminating the need to closely watch the device’s battery level when charging. Resurgence supports both wired and wireless syncing without removing the case and includes a headphone jack extender which doubles as a headphone cord keeper.

OtterBox Resurgence Power Case

The OtterBox Resurgence Power Case is available in a variety of colors for $99.95 for pre-order from and will be available at other retailers where OtterBox is carried soon.

These specific cases are only compatible with the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s, of course, so don’t expect them to be compatible with a future, redesigned iPhone we’re expecting later this fall. If you’re planning on sticking to the iPhone 5/5s for a while, though, OtterBox’s Resurgence Power Case looks like a solid option for having power and protection on-the-go.
