iPhone equipment are available in all sizes and shapes, from Kevlar-reinforced Lightning cables to chunky energy packs, however let’s be sincere, they are often fairly inconvenient to hold round. That’s what Nolii thought too, and set to work on what the corporate calls a ‘human-first’ tech accent assortment. The intention? To create iPhone equipment that each look good and make life slightly less complicated.
The Nolii Couple vary options the corporate’s patented Click on Lock system, permitting you to shortly connect and interchange an ever-expanding vary of equipment to your iPhone – so long as you’ve bought the Nolii Couple Case, anyway. The straightforward one-twist system means that you can shortly change equipment as required, be it a pockets to hold playing cards, a battery pack to cost your cellphone or perhaps a health band.
The Couple Case is produced from silicone and includes a microfibre lining to cushion your iPhone if dropped and keep away from scratches, though, with out a lot of a lip on the entrance of the case, it could make contact with the ground if it lands face-down. Fairly than making an attempt to tackle the likes of Mous by making a case that’ll preserve your iPhone secure in practically any scenario, the Couple Case focuses on being skinny, gentle and pleasingly gentle to the contact too. (That’s to not say there’s no safety although, with a claimed 1m drop safety.)
So, what are you able to connect to the £39 Couple Case? One of many cheaper and less complicated equipment out there is the £15 Pockets, offering customers with a single-slot card holder on the rear of the cellphone. It’s actually a cleaner, extra slimline various to conventional leather-based pockets instances, and Nolii claims that the Click on Lock system received’t come unfastened, so that you received’t have to fret about dropping your playing cards both.
That’s pretty normal, however the place issues get slightly extra attention-grabbing is with the £49 Battery Wi-fi and Battery Lightning Cable equipment, the latter of which I’ve been utilizing for a couple of weeks. Charging a battery when on-the-go, whereas it’s not taking place loads proper now, is usually a proper ache – particularly in case you’ve bought a chunky powerbank and an extended Lightning cable. The slimline 3000mAh transportable powerpack attaches to the rear of the cellphone and a Lightning cable extends out of the underside, offering a a lot tidier, less complicated charging course of.
For the fitness-focused, there’s additionally the £35 Nolii Health Band. The thought is straightforward; relatively than having to place your iPhone right into a devoted armband when exercising, you possibly can merely strap on the band and click on your cellphone into place when not wanted. Then, when you should examine your stats, you merely twist the iPhone to take away it – no extra awkward straining mid-run! There are additionally a few small pockets on the health band, helpful for a bit of money to cease off on the store in your approach dwelling from the fitness center.
You’ve additionally bought equipment like the Loop, the corporate’s £25 Kevlar-reinforced Lightning cable, full with a weighted base to cease it falling off the desk when not in use, and there are many different equipment within the works for launch quickly.
Every accent is out there in quite a lot of pastel-inspired colors, with as much as 40 color combos out there proper now in accordance with Nolii, and I think about that’ll solely develop as extra equipment are launched.
There’s a component of longevity at play right here; as an alternative of getting to purchase a brand new vary of equipment whenever you improve your iPhone, you want solely purchase a brand new Couple Case. So sure, whereas among the equipment are slightly dear in comparison with the competitors, you shouldn’t want to purchase one other in future.
The one actual criticism is that whereas Nolii claims that the Couple Case is wi-fi charging suitable, it does depend upon the fashion of wi-fi charger you utilize – my iPhone 11 Professional Max received’t cost through the STM ChargeTree with out me eradicating the Couple Case first, for instance.
If you happen to’re tempted, the Nolii Couple assortment is out there now for the iPhone X and later, excluding the iPhone SE (2020). For extra case inspiration, have a look on the greatest iPhone 11 instances, and the greatest iPhone 11 Professional instances too.
