Otterbox and Mophie team up

This week’s roundup includes a new product that’s like the chocolate and peanut butter of iOS accessories—two great brands combining forces to made something new and better. Read on!

We’ve often praised the toughness of Otterbox’s cases for iPhone and iPad. Now they’ve teamed up with battery-maker Mophie to create Otterbox-compatible products: The Charge Force Battery ($69.95 MSRP) adds 39 hours of talk time to your phone and fits Otterbox’s uniVERSE case, while and the Charge Force Adapter ($49.95 MSRP) turns the case into a wireless charging case. Now Otterbox cases can be tough and powerful.

The iPhone 7 Clear Case ($15 MSRP; $10 on Amazon) is beautiful because it’s sparkly—it features an inlaid diamond design for its distinctive look, but it’s not just a pretty case. It features shock-absorbent edges and other protective features so that a drop doesn’t end up like Rob Thomas’s tears, like diamonds on the floor.

This company’s MW60 Headphones ($549 MSRP; $499 on Amazon) are inspired by the design of a camera—the “legendary” Leica Noctilux-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH. It was not inspired by vegans, however, with leather trimmings and lambskin earpads, highlighted by stainless steel components.

This company has updated its Leather CardCase ($34.95 MSRP)—it’s now “crack-proof.” It holds up to four cards, comes with a gold monogram in the upper-right corner, but still maintains a slim profile to avoid the “George Costanza wallet” problem.

The AirPods Stand ($11 MSRP; same price on Amazon) is a “modern charging station”—just slide your AirPod Case into the stand’s groove, and they’ll charge once a Lightning cable is installed.

The Revolver Lens Camera Kit ($99.95 MSRP; $64.95 on Amazon) includes four different lenses for your iPhone 7: fisheye, wide angle, macro, and circular polarizer (the latter removes unwanted reflections from metallic surfaces in your pictures). They all fit onto a case with hand-polished brass accents, giving your lenses an elegant look.

Supcase’s UB Pro ($30 MSRP) is also built to hold, display, and protect the 2017 9.7-inch iPad; it has TPU bumpers and built-in screen protection. It comes in four colors, though only one—black—is available for now. You’ll have to pre-order the blue, red, or white versions.

ThinCase

Stop us if you’ve heard this claim before: The makers of ThinCase (a $59 pledge on Indiegogo)  say it’s the thinnest all-in-one iPhone battery case in existence. It’s claim to the championship? It adds just 4.8 millimeters to your phone’s thickness. It also includes a 3.5-mm audio jack, a kickstand, and more.

Forza ($100 MSRP; same price on Amazon) earbuds are designed for athletic use—they come with earhooks and “sport fins” to secure the buds in your ear, and V-Moda promises they’ve passed military-level tests for sweat, weather resistance, high and low temperatures, humidity and UV exposure. And, oh yeah, they’re also supposedly nice to listen to.
