equalizer-case-iphone5-2

Although the lights on the back of this iPhone 5/5s case look like an equalizer display, they don't actually react to specific frequencies and the max levels are pre-set.  They will react to any music or ambient sound, and they look cool and add interest to what would normally be a plain, black cover over [...]

sparkbeats-case-2

Did you know that your iPhone 5/5s has an accessibility function that causes the back camera's flash to light up to indicate an incoming call?  Combine that function with the Sparkbeats case, and you'll have a cool, geometric incoming-call indicator.  The Sparkbeats case simply channels the flash's light, so it doesn't require a battery of [...]

oberon-design-iPhone-5-case-5

As always, I'm happy to try out new cases for my electronics, especially when they are as well made and beautiful as Oberon Design products are.  When Oberon offered The Gadgeteer a chance to review their new leather iPhone cases, I asked Julie if I could try them out.  I was thrilled when I received [...]

oberon-design-phone-cases-2

I've owned a few leather items from Oberon Design over the years, and I've found them all to be exquisitely crafted, sturdy, and made of quality materials.  I still have the first item a received from Oberon - a black leather handbag that was a Mother's Day gift many years ago - and it still [...]

keyway_design_safari_hybrid

I became an iPhone owner just a few weeks ago, after years of disgruntled Android usage.  I'm almost embarrassed to admit that one of the key deciding factors in the switch over was the bevy of peripheral "toys" that can be added to an iPhone, including impressive case options.  I have always had my heart [...]

mophie-juice-pack-air-iphone-5-4

I tend to keep my iPhone 5 charged, but both my husband and daughter tend to let their batteries die.  I'm tired of paying cell phone bills for phones that aren't even available to call part of the time, so I decided to do something about it.  I couldn't get a separate battery pack, because [...]

I never used to understand the allure of wireless charging, but frankly I'm getting tired of the tangle of wires on my bedside table.  This RichardSolo iPhone Wireless Charging System could remove at least one wire from my tangle.  The charging case looks as sleek as any I've seen for iPhone, and it's available in [...]

ProngPowerPlug6

With the always-online connectivity of smartphones these days, the folks making chargers are trying to keep up as much as those developing better battery chemistry. If you're one who can't quite make it through the day on a full charge, or if you travel and need to take along a charger, you've probably been irritated [...]

truffol-autograph-1

Several months ago, I reviewed a few cases from Truffol. I loved them, but they caused signal degradation. Truffol took some of the comments they heard and went a step further when developing their latest product, the Truffol Autograph leather skin. Instead of a case, they have taken their high quality leather and made a [...]

vority-case-1

Phone cases are one of my secret passions. I love to have something different than everyone else, and I love color. One problem with the charging cases I've seen is that they are pretty limited in the colors you can have. I've seen black, white, and every once in a while, a blue or red [...]

bumprz-iphone-case

This Kickstarter project is seeking funding for an iPhone case so minimal that it almost doesn't exist.  Instead of a case that engulfs the sides and back of the iPhone or even a bumper case that covers the sides, and sometimes impacts cellular reception, the Bumprz case simply covers the corners.  The designers contend that [...]
