In a "which came first, the chicken or the egg?" type paradox, this multifunctional smartphone accessory has mysterious origins. Did someone slap a backup battery on a mediocre Bluetooth keyboard as a redeeming feature, or was a Bluetooth keyboard added to a backup battery for added value and more incentive to carry it around?
As a keyboard its boxy design makes it a little awkward-looking to hold and type, but it should be adequately usable when placed flat on a table. And an included—but bulky—smartphone stand will keep your device's display at a usable angle in that setup. Its most practical feature is a 2,000 mAh battery that should provide enough power to top off a dead smartphone, but if you're still on the fence as to whether this jack-of-all-trades/master-of-none is worth your $46, the revelation that it's also packing an LED flashlight is sure to win you over, right?
