An Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign for iStand 6, an MFi-certified combined power case and stand for the iPhone 6, starts today – with early bird pricing starting at just $40.

The iStand 6 is the first all-in-one case for the iPhone 6 with MFi certificate. In addition to providing top of the line protection, the iStand 6 has battery backup, a built-in kickstand, and storage for additional SIM Cards.

The 3500mAh battery is almost double that of the iPhone 6’s own battery, providing approximately three times the life all-in … 

The stand provides a convenient all-in-one solution for hot-deskers or travellers, allowing you to work with the screen on without external power. The built-in SIM card slot is also handy for travellers who use a local SIM while overseas.

I’ve been testing a prototype of the iStand 6 for a couple of weeks, and it does what it claims. It also feels well-built, and the flip-back stand design means it’s really easy to insert and remove your iPhone. The prototype is of the black one, but three other colors will be available (the orange one is not available direct to customers, it just shows a custom-color option available for wholesalers).


The campaign ends on February 20th, with delivery scheduled for March. You can find the campaign page here.
