V-Moda Vamp Headphone Amplifier

V-Moda Vamp Headphone Amplifier

Although it definitely looks the part, the V-Moda Vamp is not primarily an iPhone case. Its main function is to improve the performance of your iPhone’s audio capabilities. Its brushed metal and silicone construction does, however, render it an acceptable protective case, while its lithium-ion battery serves as a backup battery for your iPhone.

TakTik iPhone Case

The TAKTIC iPhone case is no ordinary iPhone case. It features a shockproof suspension constructed of 9mm truss silicone sandwiched between either two ballistic polymer or aluminum bezels for unmatched protection. Instead of a plastic film covering the screen that severely decreases touchscreen responsiveness as with most cases, the TAKTIK case features an optional sealed protective glass lens, coated with anti-glare and anti-smudge.

The GuitarConnect Cable renders your iPhone capable of taking on the role of portable studio/guitar rig. By downloading an instruments app such as JamUp Pro or iShred LIVE and plugging the GuitarConnect cable from your guitar to your iPhone, you can experience the ultimate in jam sessions. Learn different songs as you play along, while taking advantage of the virtual pedal board, effects, digital tuner, and metronome.
CHECK IT OUTMophie Outride

Mophie Outride

The Outride by Mophie easily transforms your iPhone into a mountable video camera that is protected from the worst forms of physical abuse imaginable.

Along with the free Outride app, you can view the footage, edit the footage, and share your death-defying stunts with your social media followers instantly.


Poor video quality due to your abnormally shakey hands is a thing of the past thanks to the Glif. It allows you to easily mount your iPhone onto a tripod for steadier shots. Also, it can prop up your iPhone at various angles, letting you enjoy watching movies or Facetiming hands-free. Its pretty functional for a small piece of rubberized plastic.
CHECK IT OUTSurfacepad for iPhone

SurfacePad For iPhone

Probably the coolest iPhone case on the market, the SurfacePad for iPhone was designed to protect the iPhone from the more common day to day mishaps while still allowing you to enjoy its stylishly-thin design. Crafted from quality leather, it wraps around the iPhone’s front and back surfaces with a non-abrasive adhesive, conforming the the shape and design of the phone. At less than 1/10th of an inch thick and weighing in at less than an ounce, you may forget the SurfacePad is even there, which is exactly what we’re looking for in an iPhone case.
CHECK IT OUTMophie Juicepack Helium

Mophie Juice Pack Helium

The Mophie Juice Pack Helium not only protects your iPhone, but also charges it simultaneously. It is 13% thinner than previous Juice Packs, and adds a whopping 80% more battery life to the iPhone’s existing battery power supply, allowing you to enjoy your life rather than spending the majority of it looking for a power outlet. Charging the Juice Pack Helium along with your iPhone 5 is a cinch thanks to the included Micro-USB cable, while LED indicator lights let you know the battery levels are up to par before you head out for the day.
CHECK IT OUTMilitary Grade iPhone 5 Case

Military Grade iPhone 5 Case

With a design that meets military standards, the iPhone 5 Case designed by Jon Eicher will keep your iPhone 5 tough against the elements of disaster while looking the part as well. It is crafted from ultra lightweight aerospace aluminum alloy, rendering it 100% nonconductive, nonmagnetic, noncorrosive, nontoxic, energy efficient, and protected against the inevitable impact from an accidental drop. If ultimate protection wasn’t enough, its double antennae openings along with its open side design allows for an improved antennae performance, meaning you can send and receive text messages much quicker no matter where you may be.
