Regular readers will know that as well as bringing details of new phones and tablets we also like to keep people informed about accessories for their devices. If you have an iPhone 5 this may interest you as we have some information about a new charging system from Buqu that includes a Magnetyze case and stand and is heading for a Q2 release. This is an expansion of the current Magnetyze charging dock line from the peripheral maker.
There is no exact launch date yet but pre-orders for the Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System for iPhone 5 will begin in Q2 and while there are already Magnetyze case and dock combinations for the iPhone 4 and 4S, the new bundle takes into account the Lightning connector and new longer form factor of the iPhone 5. The bundle consists of a Magnetyze case and stand with combination magnetic charging and data sync cable.
To use the station iPhone 5 owners simply need to put the device into the protective case and then attach a polycarbonate bumper over it. Because there are magnets included in both the case and stand it’s easy to attach and offers data synchronization along with simultaneous charging. If you’re already a Magnetyze customer then you can use a compatible dock you already have but just purchase the iPhone 5 protective case separately. Please note the image of the protective case below is for another phone as this item is not yet available.
When mounted the device can be used both vertically and horizontally and swiveled 360 degrees, all without interrupting the charging or needing to take the phone off the stand. As the Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System for the iPhone 5 is not available just yet pricing has not been announced but as a guide, similar case and dock bundles cost around $70. Nearer to the time of availability you will be able to see further details at the Buqu website here. You may also like to check out one of our most recent posts on other iPhone 5 cases here.
We’d like to know whether you have any interest in this Magnetyze case and charger so let us know if you intend to purchase it for your Phone 5 by sending us your comments.
