Just in time for the new iPhone 4s comes the Third Rail auxiliary battery system , an ingenious way to repower your iPhone while providing an additional backup battery at the same time. The system includes a protective iPhone case with a built-in iPhone charging port, into which you slide the phone, and a battery that snaps onto the case and charges via an included USB cable. Additional Third Rail batteries (sold separately), can be piggybacked on top of the first battery, building a big brick of charge power.
