There’re tons of battery cases out there for the iPhone, and a good selection of waterproof cases. But a battery case that’s waterproof? Just one: the new Mojo Refuel Aqua from iBattz.

The Refuel Aqua isn’t just mildly, get-caught-in-a-little-rain waterproof — it’s go-snorkeling-with-your-iPhone-for-hours waterproof; It’s rated at a mighty IPX8, the highest waterproof rating, and iBattz says it’ll seal out water at a depths of up to three meters.

While the Mojo Refuel Aqua is surrounded in a smattering of protection (iBattz says it “offers medium stress absorbing protection against knocks, drops and vibrations”), its new landlubber sibling, the Mojo Refuel Armor, offers more protection at the cost of waterproofness. We couldn’t find an IP rating, but the Refuel Armor’s case looks much thicker and incorporates silicon for shock absorption. It also sports port seals, which means that even if it isn’t waterproof, iBattz says it’ll shrug off splashes.

But that’s not even the coolest part. Just like the original Mojo Refuel we first saw last month, the Armor and Aqua are designed around a removable, high-capacity 2200 mAh battery. Extra battery modules are just $15 — which means you can carry around practically an entire week’s worth of power at a fraction of the cost and space that carrying around extra cases would cost. Which is perfect for the wild, out-there adventure these two cases beg for.

The Mojo Refuel Aqua is $120, the Refuel Armor is $80. Both are available now.
