iExpander provides iPhone with a better flash, microSD card slot, and twice the battery life

Yes, we know that it is iPhone 5 season, but this iPhone 4S accessory we spotted on Kickstarter seems too cool to be overlooked. It is called the iExpander and makes your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S better in more than one way.
First up, the accessory comes equipped with a battery that is identical to the one inside the iPhone 4S, so you have twice the power to get you through a day of extensive use. However, that is just the beginning. On the side of the iExpander resides a microSD slot that can take cards of up to 64GB. Movies, music, spreadsheets, or any kind of files that the iPhone supports can be accessed at the tap of a button. But there's one more thing - an extra LED flash has been installed on the back of the iExpander and it automatically fires each time the iPhone's built-in flash does. The result is noticeably better low-light photos and videos, as you can see in the promotional video below.
With a thickness of 6.3 millimeters, the iExpander does make the iPhone noticeably bulkier, but that is the price you have to pay to get a bigger battery, better LED flash, and microSD card support. Also, don't worry about the accessory's rather unappealing looks as that is just a prototype, while the retail product will be made out of graphite reinforced nylon, which is strong and flexible at the same time. In case you are interested, those who back up the project via Kickstarter should get their iExpander before the year's end.

I guess the extra bulk would be worth it in the long run. I would buy it if I had an iPhone.

This is a pretty nifty little idea.

Uh huh....uh huh...uh huh...ok. So it's basically not iP5's accessory... Somebody just realized it is better to do something for the iP4 series than to enhance anything for the iP5. And i have to agree with you, antmiu2...that can be done.

This look like an Expansion to a Moto Razr Maxx... Battery, micro SD, dual flash (though the iphone's camera is better)... If only this would let you boot to Jelly Bean.....

you know this would also sound great for android phones that lack SD card support start production for htc one please and the nexus phones as well with no SD card support. Iphones always get the gadgets first.
