CES 2013: Avance

CES 2013: Avance

During our trek through the iLounge at CES, we saw an iPhone 5 battery case that caught our eye. At this point in the show, we knew that everyone was having fierce problems with Apple and the licensing of the Lightning connector. We know that everyone is just waiting for that to start production and shipping. So when we saw this case, we knew there was some time before release, but it was one of the nicer units we saw. The Avance Ultra-Slim battery case has already been...

CES 2013: TYLT

CES 2013: TYLT

One of my favorite stops this past week happened to be in the South Hall with a colorful booth brought to our eyes by TYLT. If you aren’t too familiar with what they do, let’s just leave a vague description here on the table - they specialize in charging all the things. Not only do they seem like they are doing it well, but they are doing it in style and color. We got a full tour of the booth, and since there isn’t an internet long enough, I...

CES 2013: Phonesuit

CES 2013: Phonesuit

We reviewed Phonesuit’s Elite battery case for the iPhone 4S back in May of 2012. In 2013 we’re eager to get our hands on the iPhone 5 compatible version. But, like many other accessory manufacturers, Phonesuit is waiting on Apple. Still, it’s worth talking about because the Phonesuit Elite battery case we checked out was our top pick for longest running (single) battery case for the iPhone 4S. And we see no reason why Phonesuit can’t continue their...

CES 2013: Toast - Protective Wood Skins For The iPhone And Other Devices

CES 2013: Toast – Protective Wood Skins For The iPhone And Other Devices

While we were trolling the iLounge this afternoon at CES, we happened across a little booth that caught our eyes. We stopped in because we saw some sexy wood skins scattered across shelves and peg hooks. Toast is a company based out of my neck of the woods, Portland Oregon, and the reason they came about is because the CEO wanted to protect his iPhone, but hated how bulky actual cases were. He wanted something nice and not just some protective skin. So he decided it was...

CES 2013: Incipio Unveils The Atlas Waterproof Ultra-Rugged Case For iPhone 5

CES 2013: Incipio Unveils The Atlas Waterproof Ultra-Rugged Case For iPhone 5

CES 2013 has seen the birth of many new products, most of them seem to be based around some sort of charging solution, including all the manufacturers that are ticked off at how Apple is handling the licensing of their Lightning connector. But no matter how many products are brought to light this time of year, iPhone cases will still steal some of the spotlight. One of the companies that really stepped up was Incipio, with the announcement of their new OffGRID Line as well...

CES 2013: offGRID/Pro/Plus Battery Case For iPhone 5 Teased.

CES 2013: offGRID/Pro/Plus Battery Case For iPhone 5 Teased.

In regards to smartphones, we are power users - real power users. If we make it to midday with > 30% it’s something to celebrate. On the iPhone 4 and 4S we made it through each and every day with battery cases (and occasionally battery packs on top of that). For the iPhone 5, however, things haven’t caught up. Apple made some changes to their certification and approval processes with the Lightning connecter that has caused a huge bottleneck in actual...
