iPhone cases come in all different shapes and sizes, and having been well and truly hypnotized by the mesmerizing Sand Art Case featured a short while ago, trust Logitech to come through with something a little more practical and functional. Although the company’s reputation has been built predominantly in the accessories market, the Case+ range is rather different from anything that the iPhone is seen before, offering a versatile, modular solution that will cater to most of your needs.
Across the board, you’ve got so many different types of iPhone cases. There are those that concentrate on offering additional battery life, those specifically designed with mounting in mind, and others that even offer their own kickstand, enabling you to watch movies without developing an elbow strain.
The Case+ is like an all-in-one solution, offering an abundance of different modules that attach to the magnetic plate stuck on the back of your handset. Wherever or whenever you need it, the Case+ package serves as the Swiss Army knife of phone cases, although like Swiss Army knives themselves, you’re going to be paying quite a bit for the privilege of having such a wide range of tools at your disposal.
At $199, it may well be the only iPhone 5/5s case you’ll ever need, which, given the cost, is just as well. You have to consider also, that with reports suggesting that the next iPhone will be of a completely different shape to the current-gen device, your two hundred-buck purchase may only stretch five or so months, after which you might be looking to make a hardware upgrade.
Out of the box, you get your 2,300 mAh battery add-on, which is known as the “+energy,” and plugs straight into your Lightning port for more than a full battery’s worth of juice. The “+tilt” is your mounting attachment comprised of strong magnets that should have no problem sticking to any magnetic surface, and also folds in smart cover-esque fashion for a free-standing option.
The “+drive” is a suction-cup contraption that, as you might imagine, mounts to your dash or car windscreen, while the “+wallet” will keep hold of your credit / debit cards and petty cash.
It hits the market later this month, and although the price is high, the convenience of having such all of these options in one package is the obvious gain.
That said, for 200 big ones, would you buy it? Share your thoughts below!
