FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--()--Today, Ballistic Case Co., provider of industry-leading protection for smartphones and tablets, officially announced a partnership with Duracell®, the world’s leader in portable personal power.

“Ballistic has a remarkable expertise in building ultra-protective cases. We welcome Ballistic to our quality partners’ network”

Ballistic and Duracell are in exploratory discussions regarding the multi-product collection. The new line, potentially launching in 2015, may include ultra-protective power case solutions for Apple iPhone™ and android products.
