Dexim's P-Flip a great power booster for your iPhone


By 'Doctor Dave' Greenbaum

Sometimes your iPhone needs a bit of a power boost to make it through the day, just like its owner might need a cup of coffee or a shot of the latest energy drink.  

The US$69.99 Dexim P-Flip Foldable Power Dock (http://www.dexim.net/us/products/P-F/DPA065.html) is a small, powerful external battery that will get you to the end of the day and then some, with a few extras to make it a great value. The P-Flip is an external 2000 mAh battery charger and claims to provide up to six hours talk time, 10 hours video/gaming or 40 hours music.  

My real world tests were consistent with this claim. Folded up it’s about the size and thickness of a business card holder, 2 x 3 inches, and weighs about nine ounces.

The P-Flip is designed to be used as an iPhone 4 stand for FaceTime conversations or a convenient way to use the phone while charging via its USB mini cable, since it can provide power to the iPhone 4 while charging. I was able to use the P-Flip while holding the phone up to my ear, but it was a slight bit awkward. I kept this in my pocket and used it for an extra power boost while taking a break for lunch or dinner while on the road.

Included with the P-Flip is a clear bumper case to provide a tight fit in the stand for an iPhone 4, but the device works fine to charge a naked iPhone or while using some of the other popular iPhone cases. However, if you use a full wraparound case for your iPhone you’ll most likely need to remove it while using the P-Flip. No big deal given the number of naked iPhone 4s I see in the wild.

Dexim boasts that they also provide a free alarm clock iPhone app that’s designed to compliment the P-Flip. The idea is with the P-Flip you can use it as a replacement for your standard beside clock. The app works fine but doesn’t really take advantage of any special feature of the P-Flip.  Nothing negative, but it’s more a marketing gimmick than providing anything useful.

If you need a bit of a power boost throughout the day and run your iPhone 4 naked or with a minimal bumper, the P-Flip Foldable Power dock is a great option.

Pros:   Powerful, lightweight and easy to use.
Cons:  Need to use either their bumper or a minimal case

Sorry about that headline, but I'm going to go ahead and assume that GameResort would not have named its game NinjAwesome without expecting some of that. It is, in fact, pretty awesome the way it combines an endless runner and old school arcade style action, so the adjective is properly used here. [Read more] | Read more »
