uNu Electronics Inc., a global provider and distributor of portable power accessories, announced today the launch of the Ecopak iPhone 5 Battery – a new eco-friendly case and power source that doubles the battery life of the latest iPhone. Designed to be the pinnacle of eco-friendly power and sleek style, the Ecopak iPhone 5 battery case features a lithium-polymer battery for more efficient and longer life-span power.

“We are offering iPhone users a clear solution for getting the most out of their hardware while treading lightly on the environment,” says uNu CEO, Sen Cai. “Surprisingly, relatively few cell phone users recycle their old battery packs. We're addressing this gap with a high performance product that incorporates modern industrial design and a great user experience.”

Highlights of the new Ecopak for iPhone 5 include:

  •      2500mAh battery to more than double iPhone 5 battery life on the go
  •     Detachable battery pack for easy portability when additional power is not required
  •     Universal USB output for power sharing with any other mobile device
  •     Choice of 8 colorful snap cases, plus 3 styles of detachable battery, total 24 combinations
  •     Accurate LED power indicator to eliminate unnecessary recharge

uNu Ecopak Recycling Program
As of 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency estimated that the national recycling rate of mobile devices and electronics with rechargeable batteries was about 10 percent. To encourage consumers to recycle their old battery packs and try the new Ecopak for iPhone 5, uNu has created a program for customers to mail in old battery packs and purchase the Ecopak at a significantly reduced price.

Consumers can register on to receive mailing instructions to send in old battery packs. Once the old battery pack is received, program participants will receive a one-time voucher to purchase the Ecopak for iPhone 5 at $19.95, regularly priced at $79.95 USD.
