There are some really cool new accessories hitting the market in the wake of the iPhone 5 release. And even though there has been a lot of bad press about various issues revolving around the iPhone 5, you can count on a lot of these devices being sold. The first and most popular accessory of course is a case. You got to protect your investment right? Well, there are a lot of options but there are also some cases that include some pretty cool features. One of course being a battery extender. Now however, there is a new concept from Kickstarter called iExpander. The iExpander by Corr-Tech “has selected the CAP-XX supercapacitor-enabled BriteFlash architecture to power the high-performance LED flash in its new iExpander accessories for the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5.”
At the heart of the iExpander is an ultra-thin CAP-XX HS206 supercapacitor and a powerful LED flash module. The supercapacitor overcomes the limitations of the battery to deliver more power to the LEDs, extend the length of the flash pulse, and increase the total light energy emitted by the flash. The result is crisp photographs and clear videos, even in low light.
The iExpander also includes a microSD card slot and a second battery, increasing the memory capacity and battery life of the iPhone, and is packaged in a sleek, graphite-reinforced nylon case which adds just 6.3mm to the thickness of the phone. The iPhone 5 version of the iExpander also includes the original 30-pin connector in addition to a Lightning port, so users can charge from and dock to previous-generation iPhone/iPod accessories.
Corr-Tech is raising capital at Kickstarter.com (http://kck.st/QbDnEF) to help bring the iExpander to fruition. Production is to start in November 2012, with the first units shipping to customers before year-end.
