Luxurious leather!

This week’s roundup includes a few accessories that make something beautiful and useful out of the old rawhide. Read on!

  • Jisoncase iPhone 7 Case Genuine Leather Hard Back Case...


The Leather Hardback Case ($30 MSRP; $16 on Amazon) is designed for the iPhone 7; it’s made from premium genuine leather, allowing you to see the natural variations in the hide. There are cut-outs for the ports, but the power and volume buttons remain covered by press-through button overlays—just press them anyway.

Quell and Co.

The Leather Sleeve ($85 to $95 MSRP; same price on Amazon) “helps you carry and protect your devices, with the additional feature of three functional pockets in the front, allowing you to include all your daily essentials.” It comes in two sizes—one for 9.7-inch iPads, the other for the larger 12-inch laptops.



The iSine 10 ($399 MSRP) in-ear headphones promise to deliver high-quality audio, with the makers pointing to the use of “the world’s first 24-bit Lightning cable” to transfer music from your iOS device to your ears with a minimum of distortion. The company also recommend you use its Audeze app to fine-tune your desired sound on a 10-band equalizer.

  • ATECH 18000 Smallest High Capacity Power Bank with...


ATech’s Powerbank ($90 MSRP; $40 on Amazon) has a capacity of 18,000, which will let you charge the iPhone 7 almost seven times or the iPad mini 4 twice. It can itself be recharged in about nine hours, and has two USB ports so you can charge both your phone and tablet at the same time.



Lantern ($90 MSRP) is a 1,000-lumen light that offers a powerful portable lighting source on the go; its battery is so strong, in fact, that the USB ports on the device can be used to power up your iOS device in the wild. The Lantern is water-repellant and constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum.



Those white AirPods feel kind of blah to you? Custom Color AirPods lets you send them in, and for $160 have them upgraded in just about any color you choose. (You could also buy already-colored AirPods for $299, but the website says those products are currently sold out.)

  • DOTTI Smart Pixel Art Light with Notifications for...


The Dotti Smart Pixel Art Light ($70 MSRP; same price on Amazon) is like having your phone signal to you in semaphore—it syncs with your smartphone and lets you know when you receive or miss phone calls, text messages, emails, and notifications from Facebook, Twitter, Skype, WhatsApp, WeChat, and other social media accounts.



GoPower Watch ($99.95 MSRP; same price on Amazon) has finally arrived, and it “is a cordless portable charging solution for Apple Watch. This Apple Certified magnetic charging dock uses the same inductive charging connector that comes with your Apple Watch.”



Omni 20 ($299 MSRP) provides any kind of quick charge you need—it has AC/HDVC sockets to power your computer and other large devices, two USB ports for your mobile devices, and even wireless charging for your latest gizmos. That means, of course, it’s got to hold plenty of power in reserve: 20,400 mAh.

  • iPhone 6 / 6s Case, TETHYS Ultra Series iPhone 6/6S...


This company’s Ultra Series Waterproof Case ($23 MSRP; $18 on Amazon) has the ability to protect your iPhone from water, dirt, sand and snow—and can be submerged to a depth of up to eight feet without damaging your device. It comes with a lifetime warranty.

  • Apple iPad Mini 1/2/3 Keyboard Cover - Inateck...


The iPad Mini Keyboard Cover ($30 MSRP; same price on Amazon) works with the first three generations of the iPad mini, connecting via Bluetooth to transform the tablet into a tiny laptop. The battery offers up to 100 hours of use with standby time of 90 days. When closed, both keyboard and tablet automatically sleep—and both “wake up” again when opened.


Wood Accessories

The EcoGuard (starting at €64.90/about $69) comes from Germany, and is made of wood, aluminum, and leather, but has a soft interior lining to protect your iPad from scratches and dust. It’s available in six different kinds of wood, and each case is made by hand.
