It's one of the highest rated case makers, with varieties to fit most phone styles. To prove its ruggedness, OtterBox did more than 24 types of tests over 238 hours. It may be pricey at around $50, but that's still about 1/10 the cost of a new phone.
Most charging cords can fray over time, but not this cable. It’s sheathed in high strength flexible steel like you’d see on a pay phone. It's strong enough to withstand being hammered, run over, and even being cut by a chainsaw. Pick one up for around $20-$35.
This company makes a rugged weatherproof battery pack that recharges any USB device. When it’s all juiced up, it’ll recharge a phone up to 5 times; for emergencies it has a built-in LED flashlight. It’ll run you around $80.
