The idea is simple: instead of charging the iPhone or the case, you’ll charge the batteries on the dock and swap them in when needed. You can get the CoBattery as a reward on Kickstarter by pledging at least $75 (USD), but I strongly suggest that you wait until its inventors can prove that they have a working prototype.
