You can never have too much storage or battery life with your smartphone. The iXtra case adds more of both to your iPhone, with up to 128GB of built-in memory and up to 2,000mAh of additional juice.

It could be the perfect iPhone case, and you can claim yours now on Kickstarter.

When it finally rolls off the production line, the iXtra will come in 64GB and 128GB variants for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The smaller models add a 1,700mAh battery, while larger iPhones get a 2,000mAh battery.

(iXtra’s creators are also working on an iPhone 7 version that will be available soon. The iPhone 7 version will add a headphone jack, allowing you to use all your headphones without the need for a fiddly adapter.)

Like any good case, the iXtra is protective, with rubber sides that resist dings and drops. Its premium leather back feels good in the hand. It’s also pretty slim for a case that adds so much extra battery life.
