While mobile technology continues to impress and entertain, issues such as battery life and signal strength continue to annoy users, says Mental Floss Assistant Editor Rebecca O’Connell. Nikola Labs is addressing the power problem with a new iPhone 6 case that gives phones an extra 30% more power by converting radio frequencies into DC power.
Mobile phones waste a large amount of power when they transmit a signal, so the case absorbs this power back into the phone. Since the case isn’t battery powered, it doesn’t require charging, making it easier for professionals who require constant mobile connectivity.
