Mophie on Tuesday revealed a new battery case, the Juice Pack H2Pro, which it said will not only extend the battery life of an iPhone 6 but make it waterproof to a depth of 1.2 meters (about 4 feet) for 30 minutes.

The new case is IP68-rated against not just water but also dust and other particles, thanks to design touches like a built-in screen protector and sealable ports. All functions should continue to work while the case is on, including buttons and Touch ID.

It also meets MIL-STD 810G, a U.S. military standard for protection against shocks and drops. Drop protection is rated up to 4 feet.

Inside is a 2,750 milliamp-hour battery, which Mophie claims will double an iPhone's battery life. On the back is an LED power indicator used to indicate power level and charging status. Like many other battery cases, the H2Pro can be turned on and off as needed.

The Juice Pack H2Pro can currently be preordered for $130, and should ship later this month. It's only being sold in black, and there is no version for the iPhone 6 Plus.
