OtterBox teams up with mope on uniVERSE case


Last year OtterBox announced a modular case system and partnerships with accessory makers. The uniVERSE system offers OtterBox's rugged designs with expansion capability for add-ons. The company today announced a partnership with mophie, who made their name with iPhone battery backup cases.

The mophie kit adds a slim 2,500 mAh battery to a uniVERSE case. The add-on costs $69.95 and is in addition to the uniVERSE case itself, which has a $49.95 suggested price. The idea is you can have a single case and then quickly swap out the external battery without needing a different case.
