LifeProof today announced that its FRE Power waterproof battery case for iPhone 6 is now available for pre-order through its website, retailing for $129.99 with an estimated shipping date of mid-to-late June. The protective case guards the iPhone 6 against damage from water, drops, dust and snow, and has a 2,600 mAh lithium-ion battery that doubles the smartphone's battery life.

FRE Power, available in white, black and blue, features auto-stop charging so that your iPhone automatically stops charging once it reaches 100% capacity. The case also has a built-in scratch protector to protect the iPhone's touchscreen, an anti-reflective optical-glass camera lens and an included Micro USB port and cable for charging and syncing. LED lights on the back of the case indicate the battery pack's level of charge.

The case has a waterproof rating of IP-68, the highest possible for solids and liquids, meaning it is able to withstand circulating talc for 8 hours and water immersion up to 6.6 feet or 2 meters for up to 1 hour. The case also has military standard 810G-516.6 drop and shock protection, safeguarding your iPhone against drops, fumbles, vibrations and bumps. FRE Power is available now on LifeProof's website for $129.99.

LifeProof originally announced the FRE Power waterproof battery case at CES 2015.

Anyone know if they're releasing one for the 6+?

Seems like it would make the fun even more unwieldy than it already is with a case on

Is it worth it? I'm stuck between this and the mophie waterproof one.
It's a solid case; the specs are slightly smaller than the mophie ans I'm a bigger fan of the screw in headphone piece.

Only complaint is the screen protector. I'm getting the rainbow effect/water marking under the screen like crazy!

I charged my phone and then the case battery. I have used the case battery yet and when I hit the back button to light the led Indicator lights it only shows two lights? Why would it deplete when I haven't used the battery backup?

I've always been able to get rid of that by taking some baby powder and spreading it across the screen protector. Outside of the rainbow effect.. Spend the money?
