With all the fun we plan to have this summer, the one thing I don’t need is for my iPhone to run out of juice right when I’m about to snap that perfect picture or need directions to the closest ice cream stand. But, since I don’t always remember to pack my portable charger, and those cables tend to “disappear” when I need them most, I’m eyeing the nifty Prong PWR iPhone case and charger.

Created for the iPhone 5 and 6 (but not 6 Plus, sorry), Prong’s new PWR Case has two parts: A protective iphone case, and a detachable battery pack that slides right over the case when you need to give it some juice. The most awesome part is that the battery pack plugs into the wall directly, using prongs built right into the case (thus, the name), so you don’t have to remember to pack a cord or wire or adapter or really, anything. Just the case.

I’ll probably leave the battery pack attached to the case when we head out so that I don’t leave it behind, but you can also just pop that part into your bag separately, and attach it when needed. Then, get ready to charge from any standard outlet at your office, hotel room, airport lounge, you name it.  With this clever design, I’m hoping I won’t sweat once over a low battery warning or a single misplaced cord all summer.
