Protection, storage, battery life - SanDisk's IXPAND Memory Case is a three in one package. Designed for the iPhone 6/6s this case can hold 32, 64 or 128GB of extra storage. Plus, you can add on an optional 1900mAh battery pack to extend the life of your phone.
The case's free companion app, Memory Case, allows you to view and manage what you have stored in the case's storage and also view battery life stats and settings. There's a power button and LED indicators for battery life so you can use the battery without the app if you wish, and it charges with a micro-USB cable.
The hard plastic case provides decent protection for the device, and it slides on and off with ease. The device makes a connection to the case via a built-in Lightning connector as it slides in (pictured at the top), and it also requires a Bluetooth connection when using the app, which the company says is “to wake up the device from sleep.”
But without the optional battery attached, the design of the product feels a bit incomplete. Large openings on the back that allow for the battery pack to slide in make the case a bit uncomfortable in the hand without it attached.
Without the battery, you have to put up with quite a bulky case, measuring 3 inches x 5.95 inches x 0.59 inches just to get the extra storage. That’s about 15mm thick at its thickest without the battery pack.
Attach the battery pack, though, and the problem is less noticeable when compared to other products on the market, all of which are necessarily bulky in order to add any significant amount of extra battery life. The battery increases the total thickness of the case to about 20mm (and adds an extra 83gm or 2.93 oz), but its tapered design makes the product more comfortable in the hand than without it. There’s a power button and LED indicators for battery life so you can use the battery without the app if you wish, and it charges with a micro-USB cable (you can charge the battery while it’s attached or not).
