 for iPhone


 4, the ultra slim 

rechargeable battery case for iPhone 4, lets 
you talk, rock, view, share, and stay connected 
longer.  This compact battery case doubles as  
a dock for automatic syncing, and as a case  
to protect your iPhone 4 from everyday wear 
and tear. 

Equipped with an efficient lithium polymer 
battery, myPower for iPhone 4 preserves your 
iPhone 4 battery by bypassing the battery and 
directly powering (rather than charging) your  
iPhone 4.  When plugged into a USB power 
adapter or computer USB port, myPower for 
iPhone 4 will charge itself and the connected 
iPhone 4 battery.  A bright dual-color LED shows 
the capacity level at a quick glance.

With its highly innovative 



myPower for iPhone 4 
lets you exchange the 
battery module on the 
go.  That way, you can 
have extra battery packs 
at your fingertips, so 
you’re not limited by 
the capacity of a single 
external battery.

Using myPower for iPhone 4

Use myPower for iPhone 4 to power your  
iPhone 4, or to charge your iPhone 4 while  
connected to external power.  myPower for  
iPhone 4 bypasses the iPhone 4 battery to  
power (not charge) your iPhone 4, thus  
extending the overall life of the iPhone 4 battery.  
The battery will not charge iPhone 4 unless  
connected to an external power source.

myPower for iPhone 4 is charged in two ways: 
by connecting to external power via a USB 
power adapter, or by connecting to a computer 
USB port.  You use the included micro USB  
cable to charge the device.  If you are using  
an iPhone 4-compliant USB power adapter, you 
may charge your iPhone 4 at the same time by 
inserting the iPhone 4 in the case. 

As a bonus feature, myPower for iPhone 4 
doubles as a dock to sync your iPhone 4 to your 
computer when connected via the micro USB 
cable.  In this case, myPower for iPhone 4 will 
both sync and charge your iPhone 4.

Adhering myGuard Protector

Your myPower for iPhone 4 includes a myGuard 
protector set to protect the front and back of 
your iPhone 4. As it is possible the back of the 
iPhone 4 could be scratched if dust or other ele-
ments were to get caught between the battery 


background image




case and the iPhone 4 back, it is very important 
that you adhere the protector onto the back of 
your iPhone 4. This will prevent any scratches 
on the back when the iPhone 4 is in or out of our 
battery case. Additional myGuard protectors are 
available online at www.tekkeon.com. 

1. Ensure that your iPhone 4 is free of dust.

2. Holding the red label  , peel the first  

backing from the myGuard protector.

3. Position and adhere myGuard to the back of 

your iPhone 4.

4. Run your hand across the back to smooth  

out any bubbles.

5. Holding the black label  , peel the second 

backing from the myGuard protector.

6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 to adhere the  

myGuard protector to the front of your iPhone 4.

Placing Your iPhone 4 into the Battery Case

1. Holding the control module, gently pull the 

battery module from the control module to 
separate the two pieces.

2. Slide your iPhone 4 into the control  

module, ensuring that it is fully docked  
onto the 30-pin connector in the bottom

3. Slide the battery module down over your 

iPhone 4 until it snaps into place.

normally.  The iPhone 4 battery  
will not be used while

until myPower for  
iPhone 4 is empty, or  
you slide the power  
switch to off.


The On/Off switch functions only when 

your iPhone 4 is in the battery case.  When your 
iPhone 4 is not in the battery case, power is 
disabled so the battery will not slowly drain.

To maximize your myPower for iPhone 4 battery 
power, turn off myPower for iPhone 4 if your  
iPhone 4 will be in standby mode for an  
extended period (such as overnight).

If you are charging iPhone 4 at the same 

time, you must use an iPhone 4-compliant  
USB adapter.

Syncing Your iPhone 4

The intelligent design of myPower for iPhone 4 
enables you to sync your iPhone 4 while  
charging it via a USB port on your computer. 

1. With your iPhone 4 inserted in the battery 

case, connect the micro USB connector to the 
micro USB port on myPower for iPhone 4.

2. Connect the USB connector to a USB port on 

a computer. Your iPhone 4 will automatically 
sync with your computer 

(if automatic  

syncing for iPhone is enabled)


Storing myPower for iPhone 4 

Lithium-ion/polymer batteries must be used 
consistently for maximum performance. 
Therefore, if you do not use the battery often, 
once a month discharge and recharge the battery 
to 40% (if it will be transported) or 70% (for long 
term storage). Store the battery in a cool and dry 
environment at a temperature between 50° and 
86°F (10° and 30°C).  You may permanently  
damage your battery by storing the battery 
without any capacity in the cell.  It is important 
that you do not leave the battery in the interior of 
a vehicle parked in the sun, or exposed to direct 
sunlight for extended periods of time.

Prolonging Battery Life

Extreme heat and cold will affect your battery’s 
performance.  At temperatures above 80°F 
(27°C), the battery will discharge more quickly, 
and in colder temperatures, the battery won’t 
charge well.  Therefore, it is recommended that 
the battery is used at room temperature, or 
between 68°F to 77°F (20°C to 25°C), and is 
not used in temperatures outside the range of 
temperatures between 32°F to 104°F (0°C to 
40°C).  It is not recommended that the battery 
is charged in temperatures above 104°F (40°C), 
and the battery may be permanently damaged 
if you use your battery in temperatures higher 
than 140°F (60°C).  You may damage the  
battery even more if you charge the device in 
these temperatures. 

You may find that using the battery in a very 
cold environment decreases the battery capacity.  
Unlike the effects of a hot environment, this is a 
temporary condition.  Once warmed, the battery 
will return to its previous capacity.

Swapping Battery Modules

Optional replaceable battery modules are  
available for your myPower for iPhone 4.   
You can choose from the Ultra Slim battery to 
add many more hours to your iPhone 4, or our

2. Slide the new battery module down over your 

iPhone 4 until it snaps into place.


You must charge your extra battery before 

swapping it while on the go.


If myPower for iPhone 4 does not power  
iPhone 4, take these steps: 

1. Confirm that the On/Off switch is in the On 

position (to the right).

2. With the iPhone 4 inserted in the battery 

case, check the Capacity Indicator to verify 
that myPower for iPhone 4 is charged  
(capacity indicator is blue).

3. Verify that your iPhone 4 is properly docked 

into the 30-pin connector at the bottom of 
the battery case and the battery module is 
snapped securely into the control module.
