Outdoor Retailer: TopoCharger from Trimble
The TopoCharger is an iPhone case doubles the battery life of your phone, which is nothing new, but it also doubles as a detailed mapping system of each state in the country through MyTopo. Small chips loaded into the charger feed directly into your phone. This allows for the use of maps without cell service and the accompanying battery drain. These maps work exclusively with Trimble's lineup of mobile apps such as Navigator and GPS Hunt. Price for the TopoCharger is $149 and additional chips are $69. Available Fall 2014. www.trimble.com
