Battery cases can prove to be a must-have for iPhone 6 owners, and the same goes for ruggedized cases that protect Apple's smartphone against the elements. But until now, not many companies have tried combining the two. Mophie claims to have accomplished just that. Today, Mophie announced the Juice Pack H2PRO, which includes the same 2,750mAh external battery pack you'd fine in a regular Juice Pack Air.

But this one puts that battery inside a waterproof casing that can also apparently "bounce back from accidental drops, dust, dirt and other everyday conditions." Like the $99 Juice Pack Air, Mophie says this one can effectively double your iPhone 6's battery life. It also preserves full access to the iPhone's buttons and offers pass-through charging and syncing. But unlike the Juice Pack Air, this one lets you take Apple's smartphone for a swim. It's got a rating of IP-68, which means the Juice Pack H2PRO is cleared to go underwater at depths of under 4 feet for up to 30 minutes. And for something that's both waterproof and durable, this isn't nearly as hideous as you might expect. Pre-orders are open now, and the Juice Pack H2PRO will cost you $129.95.
