First let us talk about what the PowerSkin Gaming Case is not. It is not a case for you to use on your phone and throw in your pocket when you are concerned about space. PowerSkin has another cases for that. This is the case that you put your phone in to game, listen to multimedia all with an extended battery life. Add in the fact that it is one of the only cases that allows you to have buttons on the case extend the functionality of the device and give feedback you are in for a treat.
There are a lot of nice extras to this case besides the fact that as a parent you feel like your kids have a better handle on your precious (and costly) device. I felt much more conformatable playing games on the device with this case on. Plus when we are talking about gaming on an extended road trip, I know the biggest problem I have is having to attach a cable to plug it in while the kids play which means the chance that they drop it because they pull and the cable is still attached is much higher. Well this case allows them to play much longer with the extended battery allowing you to have a bit more peace and quite during your driving. Also it is nice that you can charge it with a standard USB type cable, nothing propietary here.
Some of the highlights of the device include the fact that it has volume control on the case itself. There are also LED lights that change color to reflect if the batter is charging , once it has reached 70% and when it is fully charged. Same with the Discharge Condition so you know how much you have left. When earphones are connected, the speakers turn themselves off and vice versa. The PowerSkin Gaming Case also has virbration so you can feel the crashes not just hear them. You can adjust the vibration level to your liking.
I have really enjoyed this device for myself by allowing me to listen to my music with the extra power of the speakers when I do not want to wear headphones. It has also helped me really get into some of the Angry Birds Season levels. You really feel like you are gaming on a portable gaming system when you slide your phone into the PowerSkin Gaming Case.
