Check out this slick iPhone case that doubles as a secondary battery

May 16th, 2014 at 6:00 PM
Kickstarter iPhone Augment Battery Case

Augment is the name of a new case and charger combo for the iPhone that is seeking funding on Kickstarter. Unlike existing case solutions that help users prolong the battery life on their iPhones in addition to offering damage protection, Augment proposes an interesting new take: a modular design that allows users to both enjoy a slick, protective iPhone case, and an ultra-portable external secondary iPhone battery. The two devices – the Augment Case and Augment Charge – can be connected when extra battery life is needed, and offer users a 60% extra battery charge.

Rubix’ Augment case needs $17,000 to become a real product, and with 33 days to go it has almost reached $6,000 in pledges. Interested backers can donate anywhere from $1 to $55, with the cheapest case and charger combo costing $45 – or 30% off the future retail price. Interestingly, the two components can be purchased independently, are priced at $20 (Augment Case) and $35 (Augment Charge), respectively.

Both Augment products will ship at some point in August, assuming the project reaches its funding goal.

A video and more images showing the Augument modular case and charger combo follow below.
