If you’re an iPhone 5 owner who prefers those bumper cases that only cover the edges of the smartphone, XGear has a new offering called the Fortress 2.

Mophie Juice Pack Helium for iPhone 5: Double Your Battery Life
In my experience, battery packs for smartphones can be quite useful, though they have a tendency to add a lot of bulk to your phone. That being said, if you run out of power very often, a battery case can still be a wise precaution.

Magnetic iPhone 5 Keyboard & Gamepad: Stick & Switch
I’m hoping future iPhones will be equipped with Tactus’ tactile touchscreen, but until then those of us who need physical keys will have to settle for iPhone keyboards. The EX Hybrid Controller seems like a good option for iPhone 5 owners.

iHome iDL 100 Stereo Clock Dock Charges Three Gadgets at Once
The biggest irritation for many people who moved from an older version of the iPhone to the new iPhone 5 was the smaller Lightning port. This meant that without an expensive and wonky adapter, your existing alarm clock dock and other plug-in accessories wouldn’t work with it.

If Bilbo Baggins Used iOS 6 Maps
There’s more than a few unkind words to be said about Apple’s decision to boot out Google Maps and use their own, hobbled version instead. Didn’t someone just get fired over this? That being said, I wonder if Bilbo Baggins had used an iPhone 5 and iOS 6 Maps, would he have gotten completely lost?

Nomad Lightning Cable Puts an Apple Lightning Connector on Your Keychain
When I upgraded to the iPhone 5, I didn’t really think about  how much of a pain it would be to find charging cables that fit Apple’s new Lightning connector. Sure, there are more and more products hitting the market these days, and I carry around the Lightning-to-30-pin-adapter in my bag, but I really like the idea of the Nomad Cable, a tiny Lightning-to-USB cable you can carry around on your keychain.

One of the most irritating things about Apple moving from its tried-and-true 30-pin connector to the new Lightning connector is that people are being forced to buy new accessories.

3D Printed Knitted Sweater iPhone 5 Case Wins Shapeways Competition
I’m itching like many to have a 3D printer at home so that I can print out stuff like this iPhone 5 case, which won a competition at Shapeways. It was one of five hundred entries, and what’s unique about this case is that looks more like it was knit than 3D printed.

Cooler Master iPhone 5 Bumpers Wrap Your Phone in Extra Aluminum
Unlike some of you out there, I prefer to keep my iPhone nicely wrapped up in a case. Since I know that phones can be easily dropped, and that I want to ensure that I will get maximum value when I upgrade to another phone, it makes sense to use a case.

iPhone 5 Abused with Lasers and Crazy Flashlight
Wicked Lasers is a company that makes a lot of crazy bright laser pointers. In fact, some of these things you shouldn’t even call laser “pointers” because they can actually set things on fire and pop balloons – they’re more like laser weapons.

iPhone 5 Images Leaked (We Think)
It seems like Apple’s getting pretty bad at keeping its secrets. Either that, or people are just getting better at uncovering them. While they don’t have a complete, working phone, the folks over at China’s iColorOS somehow managed to get their hands on various parts of the iPhone 5 to assemble their very own version of the device.

iPhone 5 to Sport 19-Pin Dock Connector?
I’m already avoiding the purchase of new iPhone accessories, other than cases, in preparation for the next iteration of Apple’s iPhone, as there continue to be rumors that Apple’s new dock connector will be a 19-pin port instead of the long-standing universal iOS 30-pin port.
