Powered by Mom’s Otterbox Resurgence Power Case Review
We are big fans of Otterbox cases, so much so that for myself, hubby and my teen daughter we each have an Otterbox of some kind protecting our fun. I was convinced of the top quality of Otterbox cases after my hubby had one for a few years. Over those few years he had dropped his phone several times, bumped it, had it at various construction sites and even had a box fall on it. When he took his phone out of the case it looked brand new. In fact the reason he got an Otterbox to begin with is because the last case he had which was supposed to be a good quality one, cracked when he dropped it and resulted in a crack on screen of his phone too. That made him a life long fan of Otterbox cases and it was enough to convince me to try them out finally myself a few years ago.
While I love my Otterbox Defender Case (see that review HERE) I really needed a charging case for all my travel and days I’m at sessions and conferences where I don’t have access to a plugin. That’s why I was so excited when Otterbox came out with it’s Resurgence Power Case and that I was offered the chance to review it!
I selected the Cardinal color in the Resurgence Case as I love the color red. I’ve had my phone in this case for a few months and it’s already travelled with me twice. One of my trips was a 12 hour day of being on planes and in airports. I purposely did not plug it in anywhere at an airport as I wanted to see how long it would last. I was not disappointed, my phone stayed charged for the entire trip with plenty to spare. I had the Otterbox Resurgence Power Case charge my phone when it was at about 50%.
I’m very impressed with how long I can keep my phone charged with the Otterbox Resurgence Power Case! It also has the same top quality materials we’ve come to expect in an Otterbox case helping to protect my phone from drops, bumps and scratches. In fact one day while I was at the hair salon I accidentally dropped my phone on their cement floor. It was at least a 3-4 foot drop, my phone was fine, no issues at all, whew.
There are two things that I would change though and they are:
- More color options and some designs too would be nice. Currently there are four color options, Cardinal (what we have), Mint Ice, Glacier and Black.
- I’d like to see a front cover on it like my Defender case has, I was surprised the Resurgence didn’t have it. Fortunately unlike many cases it’s at least bevelled so the phone is not flush with the top of the case. It gives it a bumper so to speak if it drops. I also put on a thin protective layer in lieu of the extra front cover that comes with the Otterbox Defender series.
Mint Ice Color
Overall though I’m very happy with Otterbox Resurgence Power Case and my phone has come out unscathed from it’s first major drop and the case keeps on powering my phone. Good job Otterbox!
