Augment is a very unique and useful case system for iPhone that will give you all of the benefits from a battery case, without all of the bulk. This is a product was recently listed on Kickstarter to gain funding, but I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to test out a sample of Augment and I’ve enjoyed every bit of it. The case works great and the battery module will provide an addition 60 percent battery life. Check out my hands-on video above for more info or click here to visit the Kickstarter page.
From my article on 9to5Mac:
Augment is a modular charging case for iPhone 5/5s that allows you to snap on a 1,200mAh power module when you need it. The idea is very simple, but very effective and will add an additional 60 percent battery life to your iPhone. The Augment Charge module is designed to be small enough to fit in a coin pocket and take up very little room when attached to the case.
The Augment Charge unit comes with a Micro USB charging cable that will also charge and sync the iPhone when connected. There’s also a small LED status indicator on the side of the module to help keep you aware of the remaining power. Augment Charge has also received MFI (Made For iPhone) approval from Apple and will continue with the final certification process once the project meets its funding goal.
As far as the case goes, I’m a big fan of its design. This is definitely different than any other case I’ve seen and the added charging functionality makes it a winner in my book. The outside of the case is covered in a durable TPU rubber, while the inside has a polycarbonate shell to add reinforcement. Both the charge module and case are available in black, blue, and red.
