A Kickstarter campaign to launch 'Cabin', a slim aluminum portable battery for iPhone, also offers an adapter kit that brings MagSafe like charging to the iPhone.

Cabin uses magnetic connection to provide additional power to the iPhone.

The key to Cabin’s ease-of-use is the magnetic connection between iPhone and Cabin. By designing a special MicroAdaptor for the iPhone’s Lightning port which magnetically attaches iPhone to Cabin, we have made the connection and charging process, if it may be said, incredibly delightful.

Alongside Cabin, there's also the Cabin Dock which makes use of the MicroAdapter.

Thanks to our MicroAdapter, placing iPhone directly on the Cabin Dock is as easy as putting your phone on the table. An iPhone and attached Cabin battery can also be placed on the Dock together, charging both in the process.

There's also a MagAdapter that you can attach to a Lightning cable for easy charging.

Our passion for improving the charging process has even extended to improving the Lightning cable itself. Our MagAdaptor for the Apple Lightning cable easily connects to our iPhone MicroAdaptor or Cabin.

You can pledge $25 to get the MagAdaptor and MicroAdapter, $59 for the adapters and Cabin Dock, $89 for the adapters and Cabin, or $135 for the adapters and both Cabin and Cabin Dock.

So far $24,062 has been pledged of the $50,000 goal with 42 days to go.

With the iphone 6 coming out in a few months, the cabin and cabin dock would become obsolete before the 11/2014 delivery. Add several more months of typical kickstarter project delay and this whole project becomes a non-factor.

There's some truth to that but there are still gonna be some who have a 5 and 5s, I know people personally that still have and use a 3GS so maybe it'll be for them, but if you watch closely in the video you can see that they actually had one of the iPhone 6 dummy units so maybe they're waiting to see if that's actually how it will be before the invest in materials for it. I think it's a neat product and will be investing in it, didn't really want the case thing, just the connector and adapter though

You guys read this comment because you aren't reading into the actual project. Yes, it does sync and charge. MAGSAFE IPHONE DOESN'T WORK WITH THE MACBOOK MAGSAFE! They send you a adapter for the lightening to magsafe and the magsafe to lightning for the phone for $25. You don't have to buy the case. Why this is nice? Well, you have a 1% chance of breaking the port with this plug in. Try dropping your iphone while the cable is plugged in and then youll see why magnets are a good idea. Don't be negative.

When iPhone drops, it may hold onto the cable but it is easy to remove like in the MacBooks but on MacBooks it drops easily because of the weight.

Agreed, this is a fantastic idea. So funny how you go on here & see how incompetent people are.
