This Tech Squib urges you to grab this item quickly, if you like it. It might be pushed aside sooner than later.

The iPhone 5 Mojo Hi5 Powerbank Case is a two-part protective case with a detachable 2500mAh aluminum battery to keep the phone powered. That battery can also be used to power other USB devices.

The case element is adequate for phone protection. Once you add the battery to it, it's a decent size hunk of technology. As we speak, new single unit iPhone 5 recharging cases are hitting the market — making this two-part design seem obsolete.

However, the sheer power of the Mojo's battery means it will not only boost charge time for a phone, it can actually recharge a dead iPhone 5 to full power.
