Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The Battery Backup Armband

New York, NY, May 26th, 2015 - Continuing its 167-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Battery Backup Armband, a device exclusively offered by Hammacher Schlemmer that charges an iPhone.

A lightweight rechargeable battery integrated into the armband charges an iPhone up to 80% and recharges in only five hours via the included USB cable, enabling you to fully charge the battery the night before a long walk, run, or a morning gym workout.

"Its three LEDs indicate the current power level," explained Fred Berns, Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager. "You can complete a training run or spin class without the concern of your favorite song stopping mid-verse."

With durable polyester construction that protects an iPhone from incidental contact, the armband stays in-place on an arm with a soft, adjustable strap, and its lightweight, thin design goes unnoticed, allowing the beat to go on while you are exercising.

The Battery Backup Armband is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $69.95. For more information about this product, please visit, or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at
