We’re not too emphatic about iPhone cases.  More often than not they don’t add all that much protection, break after a short period of time and only serve one purpose, which is to protect your iPhone from drops and scratches.  Pile on top of that a wallet and you’ve probably got a relatively unsightly set of bulges in your pockets.

While the CASELLET iPhone case is anything but svelte, it’s a reasonable caveat in light of its utilitarian value.  You see, the CASELLET has not only a slot for up to 3 cards and cash, but also protects your iPhone if it happens to take a dinger.  The original version called for a vanity mirror – clearly targeted at the ladies- but they’ve removed it in favor of a slimmer case that is 1/32″ thinner than the original – now just 8mm thick.  However, the rest of the design has virtually remained the same, calling for an open face so your iPhone’s screen is left unhindered, a set of port cut outs for the camera and sync dock, a quick release button to access your hidden cards and an aluminum finish for added protection and opulence.

Interested? The CASELET is a Kickstarter project so they need your help.  Right now they’ve achieved about half their goal of $22k.  Pledge what you’d like, but if you want your own you’ll need to drop $40, which is a $20 discount over the planned retail cost.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
