Designed for the Samsung Galaxy S III – the top-selling U.S. smartphone in August – this new PowerSkin® features patent-pending technology.

Free portable speaker, valued at $39.99, will be included with orders placed during first week.

PowerSkin®, maker of shock-absorbing, battery-boosting cases for smartphones and gaming accessories, debuted the first-ever NFC-enabled smartphone battery case for the Samsung Galaxy S III, outfitted with silicone and 1500 mAh of power, and including a bonus free portable speaker on orders placed through 9/19/2012.

NFC is a wireless connectivity technology that allows devices in close proximity to each other to communicate via magnetic-field induction. PowerSkin’s® patent-pending technology enables NFC transmission to pass through the silicone case for quick information sharing.

“User convenience is paramount to PowerSkin’s® product designs,” said Shaun Ng, Product Manager for XPAL Power / PowerSkin®. “By integrating proprietary NFC technology into our battery cases, we’ve given users the ability to share information quickly, securely and wirelessly with nearby devices, making the exchange more convenient than ever.”
