We’ve come across some weird stuff in our time, including talking trees and shoe cookies, but this one is exploding our goats a bit. On the surface it’s just a case for an iPhone handset, but dig deeper and all sorts of amazing things tumble out of the box.
For one thing, this OnePeel iPhone Power Case contains a dual SIM, dual standby function, which effectively means your phone will be able to accept calls from three different phone numbers at all times. Which kind of makes you something like a switchboard operator. Or CIA spy.
As if that wasn’t enough, it also contains a 900mAh battery pack which you can use to charge up your phone on the go, pretty useful we think you’ll agree. But wait. There’s more. Inside the case is a call recording function so you can capture all your phone calls with the press of a button, and finally – and probably most important in our minds – is the fact that we think they’ve made the back side of the case look like an old phone, so it’s less of a thief magnet when you’re talking.
The result is a complete toolbox of useful things to add to your smartphone, if only you’re prepared to sacrifice all the sleek, stylish design smarts that the late Mr Jobs spend hours obsessing over back in the day. We said it was weird. Anyhoo, you can pick one of these puppies up for $95.97 if you know where to look. And no, we’re not totally sure whether or not it’s actually a full phone inside a case in its own right. We just didn’t want to go there to be honest.
