Logitech is not a company known for phone cases, but they just released an interesting new take of them with their new case+ system. Case+ consists of a base case and a number of add-ons attached to the back of the base. The tilt+ is a folding folio-style back panel which can fold into different shapes including a stand and earbud holder. It’ll also attach to magnetic surfaces. The +drive is a magnetic car stand that’ll attach to the windshield or dash. The +wallet turns the case+ into a wallet case with room for payment cards and cash. It’s also magnetically shielded. Last is the +energy which gives you 2300mAh of additional power.
Case+ comes as a kit with all 4 add-ons for $199. It should be available later this month.
Logitech Unveils Innovative New Smartphone Case Solution
New Logitech case+ Modular System Selected as Gold 2014 Edison Award Winner
“When it comes to smartphone use today, market trends show people value both style and function”
Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced a suite of mobile accessories designed for the iPhone® 5 and iPhone® 5s that combines beautiful design with unparalleled function. The Logitech® case+ serves as the foundation of the system, which will be sold as a collection and includes an array of practical yet beautiful add-ons that enhance the functionality of your phone.
The magnetically mounted additions to the case+ include the Logitech® +tilt, a kickstand and cord keeper, the Logitech® +energy, which is designed to double your phone’s battery life, the Logitech® +drive, which is a mount for a car window or dashboard, and the Logitech® +wallet, which lets you bring your cards and cash along when you’re on the go. Collectively, the new solutions give you sleek protection and a host of new features.
“When it comes to smartphone use today, market trends show people value both style and function,” said Ariel Fischer, director of product marketing at Logitech. “Until the availability of the Logitech case+ system, there hasn’t been a solution that marries both. Our new collection helps people customize their smartphone to make the most of it in any situation, whether at home, in the car or on the go. And, each solution is designed to fit seamlessly into your mobile lifestyle and look good.”
Already selected as a Gold 2014 Edison award winner, recognized for creative design and innovation, the Logitech case+ accessories work together, making it easy for you to do what you need to do, no matter where you are. The new accessories include:
The case+ is a protective case that serves as the foundation of the system. Key to the functionality is a metal plate across the back of the case, which provides style and an added layer of protection, and also serves as the mounting plate for the magnetic system.
With gentle curves, a soft-touch finish, modern colors and two different cover materials, the +tilt adds both style and function to your iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s. With a kickstand, earbud wrap and magnetic mounting, the +tilt gives you the tools you need to get through your busy day with style to spare.
Its magnetic free-mount system lets you attach your smartphone to any metal surface – from your fridge to a file cabinet – so you can follow a new recipe or video chat with colleagues, hands free. When you want to watch a favorite video, just fold the +tilt into a kickstand for easy viewing. And when it’s time to put away your earbuds, simply wrap the cord over your smartphone, then fold and remove the +tilt panel for quick and hassle-free storage.
The +energy adds both style and extra power to your case+ covered iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s. With a free-mount battery panel, you’ve got power when you want it. Just snap the +energy battery pack onto your phone and you can get double the power of your battery. With the +energy you get unparalleled quality, cutting-edge technology, unrivaled design and extraordinary simplicity.
The +drive delivers a one-touch modern phone mount for your car. When your case+ covered smartphone is helping you navigate the road or keeping you entertained in the car, you need an easy way to secure it without distracting you. The +drive mount adheres to your windshield or dashboard through a suction cup with a single twist action to lock it in place. With the help of the case+ protective case, your iPhone magnetically mounts with one touch to keep your phone secure and visible at the same time. The +drive also comes with a universal adaptor that allows a second smartphone to be used with the system.
The +wallet turns your case+ into a slim, stylish wallet that conveniently keeps cards and cash at your fingertips. With magnetic coupling, the +wallet instantly unites your phone and wallet into one pocket-friendly design. To keep your credit cards and hotel keys safe, the +wallet features Magnashield technology, which protects the contents of your wallet by creating a barrier to prevent demagnetization. The +wallet stylishly solves your pockets’ problems, uniting everything you need when you’re on the go.

The Logitech case+ collection is expected to be available in the U.S. beginning in in May 2014, for a suggested retail price of $199.99. For more information please visit www.logitech.com.
