KUKE iPhone 6/6s battery and storage case kills three birds with one stone

KUKE iPhone 6/6s battery and storage case kills three birds with one stone
The iPhone 6 and 6s have many virtues, but battery life and cheap storage aren't one of them. Enter KUKE - the cooky case that remedies both wrongs in one wrapper, and protects your phone in a fairly stylish manner while doing it. KUKE is slimmer than both Apple's own Smart Battery Case and Mophie's Juice Pack, which are the standard-bearers of such cases for the iPhone.

Still, it packs a 2400 mAh juicer that extends your battery life for a further 10 hours of video binging, and you can charge both the phone and the case through the Lightning port at the bottom, which is pretty handy. Moreover, KUKE comes with your choice of 16 GB or 64 GB of built-in storage, so you can expand on your basic amount significantly, and manage files back and forth with the supplied app. 

How much for this all-in-one? Well, the super early birds on KUKE's Indiegogo campaign can get the 16-gigger for $69, shipped free around March, and the 64 GB version will set you back $119, while the regular prices are ten bucks more. The case offers more than Apple's or Mophie's creations for this kind of ricing, and yet it's a startup brand, so it should be enticing users with better value for the money than the established brands. Any takers?

I dont have issues that would merit the need to own this, but if I did - this is an awesome design - love how the lowered the charging port just slightly below original to avoid that protruding bottom. Great job guys... I'll be recommending this to others.. Price is reasonable too..

If I'd own 6 I would definitely buy it, looks gorgeous. I'm generally opposed towards any cases but this one has too many cooks

Why won't Apple make iPhone with larger battery? What happens to proclaimed thinness when iPhones are wrapped with these cases.

obviously to increase profit margin.. what else? :-/
most android phone that thinner than i6 have >2000mAh battery, so thinness isnt the problem here (Gionee Elife S5.5 have 2300mAh at 5.5mm thickness)

And how those relate ?
An iPad is also thinner than iPhone 6, yet packs way bigger battery than any iPhone.
The 6S is thicker yet it's got a smaller battery than the thinner iPhone 6.
The Mac Book is way thicker and heavier than iPad Pro, yet it has just a bit bigger battery.

And considering how cheap the battery is, it won't save much if you reduce the capacity of it. Or even if you will try to make a super thin high capacity cell, like in the iPhone, it's going to cost more than regular off the shelf part.
