Popcord Keyring Charger

Popcord Keyring Charger

Put an end to the incredibly annoying act of trying to find your phone charger with the Popcord Keyring Charger ($30).  Weighing in at approximately 12 grams and measuring a mere 2.5 inches when closed, Popcord discreetly attaches to your keyring, backpack, or anything else you can dream of, staying out of the way when you're not using it and instantly transforming into a phone charger when you need it to.  It comes equipped with both Apple's Lightning connector and a mini USB, meaning it works with a huge variety of modern devices, and it comes in five color options to ensure a perfect match with your phone design.  Check out the Popcord Kicstarter page to see the Popcord colors or get in on an early production run.

POSH PROJECTS LUNA SKIN

POSH PROJECTS LUNA SKIN iPhone Case

In what's easily one of the most unique iPhone 5/5s additions I've seen, POSH PROJECTS is offering a unique LUNA SKIN iPhone Case ($25), although it's less for protection and more of an aesthetic addition.  Hand made from thin sheets of concrete, LUNA SKINs are modeled after the surface of the moon, and each one notes a distinctly unique surface.  Installing them is a matter of peeling off a sticky backing and placing it on your iPhone 5/5S, while camera functionality isn't hindered due to a strategically placed cutout.  Thickness wise, the LUNA SKIN adds very little to the iPhone (meaning it's still simple to carry in your pocket), while it's curves match the iPhone's perfectly, making it a seamless way to add a unique style element to your iPhone.

Moshi SenseCover iPhone Case

Moshi SenseCover iPhone Case

If you're paranoid about protecting the intricate curves and sheen of your iPhone, check out the Moshi SenseCover ($45) for the iPhone 5/5s.  It's a case designed to keep your iPhone safely tucked away from the dangers of the world, allowing you to answer the phone and talk without ever having to open the cover.  Making the magic happen, the Moshi SenseCover notes a hybrid leatherette front cover embedded with what Moshi calls "SensArray" pads, capable of detecting your finger input when sliding.  The case offers complete front and backside protection, and it also works in tandem with Moshi's iVisor or iVisor Glass, in turn offering even more screen protection.

Turnikit iPhone Lens Adapter

TURNIKIT iPhone Lens Adapter

If you've ever wished you could pair your existing DSLR and/or vintage film photo lens collection with your iPhone, now you can, thanks to the TURNIKIT lens adapter for the iPhone ($150).  Available in both Nikon and Canon mounts, TURNIKIT works with a wide variety of Canon EF and EFS lenses as well as Nikon Ai, Ai-s and AF-D lenses (the one caveat is that TURNIKIT doesn't play well with lenses wider than 35mm).  Focusing is handled manually via your lens, and photos are taken using one of several inexpensive photo apps.  Once set up, you can take even greater iPhone photos thanks to the depth-of-field control you now have, with the added bonus you won't have to buy any additional lenses to make the photo magic happen.

Helly Hansen First Tracks App

Helly Hansen First Tracks App

Surfers live by waves; snowboarders and skiers live by snow.  Now you can let your smart phone wake you up based on whether or not fresh powder has dropped, thanks to the Helly Hansen First Tracks App ($free).  Available in both the Apple App Store and Google Play store, First Tracks allows you to set two alarms – one for if it does snow, and one for if it doesn't.  The weather is then automatically tracked through the night for you, and in the event you're blessed with fresh powder, the earlier of the two alarms gets you out the door at the crack of dawn.  No fresh powder?  Sleep in and hit the mountain a little later.  If you want it, head over to Helly Hansen to download First Tracks for free.

TaskOne iPhone Case

TaskOne iPhone Case

Give your iPhone Swiss Army Knife like functionality with the TaskOne iPhone Case ($80 - $100).  Crafted from aircraft-grade aluminum and polycarbonate, the TaskOne iPhone Case protects your phone while offering an impressive 22 tools built-in to handle a variety of impromptu tool needs.  There's a knife, saw, three screwdrivers, six allen wrenches, a bottle opener, a wire stripper, a wire cutter, a metric ruler, pliers and box wrenches.  There's also a pair of slots on the back that allow you to insert the screwdriver, acting as a phone stand in either landscape or portrait orientations.  If you want one, the TaskOne iPhone Case is available in three colors (black, grey or red), and it comes packed with a screen protector in addition to the case and tools.

iSkelter Classic Station front

iSkelter Classic Station

If one of your New Year's resolutions is to get more organized, you already know that two of the places to accumulate the most clutter are 1) your bedroom nightstand and 2) your desk.  To tidy up both, we recommend that you put an end to the disorganization with the iSkelter Classic Station ($40) – a handsome, functional organizer designed to keep all your random stuff neatly stowed and contained.  It has a dedicated space for your phone, whether it's an iPhone, Windows or Android model; it has a pen holder; and it has a large space for random stuff, which includes your wallet, keys, loose change, sunglasses, etc.  Best of all, it's crafted from 100% eco-friendly bamboo – a material that's both great looking and easily renewable.

Galileo iPhone Dock

Galileo iPhone Dock

Taking the complexity out of shooting stunning panoramic landscapes, Motrr has created the Galileo iPhone Dock ($150), a device that turns your phone into a remote controlled video camera.  To shoot panoramic videos, simply pair up the Galileo with the free Sphere app, and the dock rotates automatically, capturing up to 45 images along the way.  These images are then stitched together, giving you fantastically great panoramas with almost no work.  Not into panoramas?  The Galileo also works as a controllable dock, allowing you to remotely move the dock a full 360˚with the swipe of your finger.  Not only can you remotely capture any photos you want, video chats just got a whole lot better too, as you can now control exactly what you see during the conversation.

Olloclip iPhone Lens

Olloclip iPhone Lens

If you're looking for an incredibly simple way to step up the capabilities of your iPhone's camera, check out the Olloclip lineup of iPhone lenses.  There are two variants to choose from:  a 3-in-1 lens for your Apple iPhone 5c ($60) that comes packed with a macro, fisheye and wide angle capabilities; or there's a 4-in-1 lens for the Apple iPhone 4/4s/5/5s ($70) that includes fisheye, wide angle, 10x macro and 15x macro capabilities.  Both Olloclip lenses come in numerous colors to compliment your phone's individual color scheme, and both use precision ground, coated glass multi-element optics to ensure excellent picture quality.  While I haven't used one myself, Olloclip's Flickr pool notes some stunning examples of the lenses in action, easily justifying the $60-$70 price tag.

Kogeto Dot

Kogeto Dot

Shooting videos on your iPhone is fun, but shooting  360-degree videos on your iPhone is even better.  And thanks to the Kogeto Dot ($50), shooting 360 degree videos is about as simple as you can get.  Simply snap the Kogeto Dot onto your phone, download Kogeto's free Looker app, and press record.  Together, the Dot and Looker app magically transform your iPhone into a fully 360-degree video camera.  At any point of your video playback you can rotate the camera to any view you desire for a fully immersive video experience, or you can opt to view all footage at once in a super widescreen viewing mode.  Best of all, once you're finished shooting your awesome 360-degree videos, you can share them directly via the Looker app to Facebook, Twitter or Kogeto.com, allowing the world to partake in your 360-degree filming greatness.
