OtterBox’s new case offers a battery, speakers, Square reader and other swappable functionality


I spotted an OtterBox case on the train ride in this morning that more or less confirmed my feelings about the company’s products: big, bulky and protective. Swaddling one’s phone in an OtterBox case for a New York City subway ride is the smartphone equivalent to wearing a bulletproof vest in public. It’s kind of uncomfortable and slightly awkward, but hey, you never know, right? But while there will always be a place for hyper-protective cases (I know what I want my phone in the next time I go crab fishing), the company has clearly been looking for a way to offer protection without effectively encasing the thing in Lucite.
