Logitech Unveils New Case+ Product with Multiple Accessories




Logitech has unveiled its new Case [+] product for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, which contains a metal case and multiple magnetic attachments including a leather cover, a mount for use with vehicles, a wallet, and an external battery.

The Logitech Case [+]
The [+] tilt attachment provides users with a leather cover that can also be used on the rear of the iPhone as a mount or kickstand, while the [+] drive attachment can be used as a magnetic mounting solution on a car's dashboard or windshield. Both attachments connect to the back of the case, while the [+] tilt attachment can be detached to be used as an earbud wrap.

Logitech's [+] tilt Attachment
Case [+] also includes a [+] wallet accessory that can be attached to the back of the phone to hold cash, credit cards, and keys, as Logitech's "Magnashield Technology" prevents cards from being demagnetized. Finally, the [+] energy attachment includes a mountable 2,300 mAh battery that utilizes a port connector, and also includes LED lights that display how much battery is left in the case.

Logitech's [+] energy Attachment
Logitech's Case [+] system will be available later this month for $199 and can be preordered now from the company's official website.

Great case but not at a more expensive price than buying the actual phone on contract!

It's a little late to be just releasing a case for the 5/5S form factor.

That's pretty expensive, you'd really have to want those features to spend that.

Having good features and characteristics but too expensive and not having a fine and attractive look. Its also late in the market.

Based on the number of people I still see carrying the 4/4s form factor as well as those who have just recently upgraded to the 5/5s, I would have to disagree. Furthermore, there is no solid evidence that the 5/5s form factor is dead upon arrival of the new model this fall. If anything, there is history to support that it may yet stick around.

For one, they missed a ton of potential sales by introducing this so late in the game.

Also, anybody who's buying a 5/5S after the release of iPhone 6 is not spending $200 on a case considering it would cost more than the upfront price of the phone itself. This thing is DOA.

While you do get quite a lot for $200. But no sane person is going to pay that kind of money for a case.

I'll buy it when it's in the $0.99 bin at Staples.

$199? I'll pass. Especially since I'll be upgrading to a larger form factor iPhone 6 as as soon as it's released. Might have been interested if it came out when the 5 first did although $199 is still a lot for a case, even with those other features.

A battery pack and car mount in addition to a case for $200? I would totally buy that if I had an iPhone 5 or 5S. Mophie's juice packs(smaller battery capacity than this) costs upwards of $100 by itself!

I like the modular idea, but why not just sell the basic case and let you buy individual accessories? I wouldn't mind maybe trying that wallet thing or the battery case but as for the others, I don't have a car, and I sure as hell don't need a weird magnetic backing to put my phone on the refrigerator (!?)
Idiots.
