LAS VEGAS, Jan. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- i-BLADES, Inc., maker of the world’s first Smartcase, announced today a series of snap-on accessories for its modular phone cases. These accessories will allow i-BLADES Smartcase users to enjoy even greater wireless freedom--from in-car charging to ease of stackable charging for modular battery and memory Smartblades. These are all on display at CES.

The i-BLADES Smartcase is a newly launched phone case that not only offers protection, but its built-in micro engineered technology lets users upgrade smartphone capabilities with snap-on modular Smartblades. Smartblades attach magnetically to the back of the case adding features wirelessly to the smartphone such as power, memory, audio, security and other applications.

i-BLADES is now offering Smartcase purchasers new accessories to match their lifestyles. i-BLADES snap-on system and its proprietary wireless standard for high-speed data and power transfer, helps make users’ mobile lives easier.

The three accessories are:

  1. A smart magnetic in-car holder and charger. This delivers a fast charge wirelessly. Just snap-on your Smartcase and get instant charging. Rotate your phone easily and securely to any position using the unique 360-degree adjustable lockable system.
  1. A smart wall charger. Once plugged into the wall you can snap-on Smartcases or Smartblades magnetically so they can charge wirelessly. Stack multiple Smartblades to “Stack-charge” so you can get maximum battery capacity on one charge.
  1. Wireless adapter Smartblade. This ultra-thin accessory--just over 3mm thick--snaps discretely onto the back of your Smartblade. It allows any phone in the Smartcase to wirelessly charge at high speed on i-BLADES proprietary wireless system and across other universal wireless chargers.

“This is just the start of the expanding i-BLADES wireless ecosystem to enable our users to be able to do more wirelessly,” said Jorge Fernandes, CEO, i-BLADES.

The accessories will be showcased at CES. Contact for a demo or more information. They will be available in the first quarter of 2018.
