Millions of Americans pay less than $99 for their spanking new iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C.
That’s because a huge number of American consumers trade in their existing iPhones when Apple puts out a new model.
For instance, I paid a mere $59 for my new iPhone 5S (16GB) at Best Buy last year after trading in my three-year-old iPhone 4 (which I had maintained in pristine condition thanks to my tank-like Ballistic case).
Logitech Case+ for iPhone 5S/5 – $200
And now comes along Logitech with the $200 Case+ for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5.
Case+ includes a case, wallet, tilt stand, car drive mount and battery pack.
The back of the case is magnetized so that the other parts can attach to it.

The extra battery juice is useful but it’s not worth $200. Since Case+ is not available in unbundled form, you have to get the whole shebang – wallet, tilt stand, drive mount and all.
From the looks of the Case+, I can see that this case is not a rugged cover and will not protect my iPhone 5S should I drop it on the sidewalk or the train platform.
Thank you, Logitech. I’ll stick to my tested and trusted $25 Ballistic case.
And when the battery runs low on my iPhone 5S, I’ll pop into America’s largest rest-room chain Starbucks and charge it for free! 😉
In case you belong to the category of idiots, Case+ is available for pre-order.
I can’t imagine many Americans will splurge $200 on a case for a device that cost them no more than $50-$99.
If you ask me, poor sales of Case+ will force Logitech to dump the sucker on Groupon in a few months for $99 or less. 😉 At that price, Case+ might be worth a look.
N.B.: Why is Logitech giving only a 1-year warranty in America but 2-years in Australia for the unbundled Case+tilt?
