A new Kickstarter project is looking to bring the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and AirPods together under one roof. The aptly named PodCase is a battery case for both the handset and wireless earbuds.
The case is charged with a regular USB-C cable.
The 2,500mAH case is charged with a single USB-C cable. Your AirPods are accessible in an area near the top right of the case.
Currently, with 29 days left to go in the project, almost $8,000 has been raised on a goal of $300,015.
Right now, for an early bird pledge of $79, you can reserve a PodCase for your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and AirPods.
All of the rewards are estimated to ship in February 2018. You can select from either an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus case. The company is planning to introduce a version for the “iPhone 8” as well and will allow pledges to be switched over.
I’m not exactly sold on the idea of an iPhone and AirPod case. The small case Apple provides with the wireless earbuds does a great job of protecting the AirPods while on the go.
As many times as I’ve dropped my iPhone case, I don’t know if my AirPods would have survived the fall.
