If you use an iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, or an iPhone 6, you know that a battery case is an absolute must-have accessory. You also know what the worst thing about iPhone battery cases is: they connect through the Lightning port, so you can’t plug anything else in while your iPhone is in its battery case. Well, there’s a new case out there that just launched from well-known smartphone accessory maker Anker, and it offers a very smart new take on battery cases.

What makes it so different? It’s actually more than a battery backpack than a battery case. The Anker PowerCore Case’s design leaves the entire bottom of the iPhone open so that you can plug in any accessories or headphones you want. Then, when your phone needs some extra juice, an integrated plug connects the Anker case to your iPhone.

Here are some highlights from the product page:
