It’s hard to believe that 6-years after the launch of the very first Mophie “juice pack,” there’s still no real “smart” battery case available for smartphones.
By “smart,” I mean a case that doesn’t require to be manually turned on – by flipping a dumb switch – when the smartphone runs low in power, and that can precisely display the battery level, beyond just flashing some LEDs on the side of the case!
Proporta has introduced a new collection of Apple iPad and iPhone cases in collaboration with Barbour and Julia Dodsworth and we got our hands on some.
Julia Dodsworth is best known as a canal boat artist and the cases and parts of Barbour’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection are inspired by her narrowboat, the Calamity Jane, that features 18th Century Folk Art which is clearly apparent in the cases.
Whenever Dusty Dorey would join his friends at the Contented Cow to listen to live music, he would need to pause for a moment to adjust his hearing aids to compensate for the noise levels inside the pub.
Now, the 29-year-old said he walks into the suburban Minneapolis establishment like any other patron. The hearing aids automatically mute the din because he has created a setting specifically for his favorite weekend haunt.
