CASE:Lynk is a super-slim, super-sexy iPhone (4S/5) case with an integrated FLEXIBLE charging and sync cord.

What People Are Saying:

CultofMac.com: "What you need is a charger that is always with you. What you need is the Case:Lynk."

onlyappleipad.com: "...a good idea to equip your belt with a cable...]

iMore.com: "The CASE:Lynk is certainly a smart way to ensure you always have a sync and charge cable with you whenever you have your iPhone."

BiteMyApple.co"CASE:Lynk is so clever and we at BiteMyApple.co can't wait to carry the CASE:Lynk on our online store."

Never Worry About Running Out of Charge Again

Most charging solutions require you to carry an additional item, or they sacrifice the iPhones elegant aesthetics. At akkuo, our goal with CASE:Lynk is to create a case with an integrated charging cord that still looks beautiful.

How It Works

Cases have gone through many transformations and innovations, but we think we've stumbled upon one thats both functional while still retaining an elegant minimalist aesthetic.  Apple is known for creating products that are simple, beautiful, and highly functional.  We want to continue that approach with CASE:Lynk!

Our Case is Only 2.3mm Thick In Back...and 1mm Everywhere Else

You might think the integrated charging cord built into the back of CASE:Lynk would cause it to be a bulky case. This was one of our major concerns, as well, when designing the product.  In order to slim it down, we developed a custom USB connector without the jacket.  This allows us to reduce the thickness of the back of our case to only 2.3mm. It is 1mm thick everywhere else, so you get a complete charging and syncing solution without adding bulk to your pocket.  These innovations make CASE:Lynk the slimmest charging cord on the market.

Check Out Our Working Prototypes!

We take product development very seriously and wouldn't come to Kickstarter without working prototypes. With CASE:Lynk, we have focused on making a case that exceeds your expectations by delivering BEAUTIFUL aesthetics and FUNCTION via a built in, flexible USB sync and charge cord.

Never Worry About:

  • Running out of charge at a critical moment
  • Not being able to sync your data
  • Borrowing other people's cords because you forgot yours...again!

CASE:Lynk Can Be Ordered in Different Colors

Apple has a history of bold colors and bold design.  We wanted to bring that feeling back for you with CASE:Lynk.  Here are some sample colors we are testing out.  Stay tuned to see which make the cut!

iPhone 5 Is Coming!

Planning to switch to the iPhone 5?  Don't worry, we've already got you covered.  Apple decided to change the connector...but that won't stop us!  By participating in our iPhone 5 pledge you'll ensure that you're the first to hear about and receive your iPhone 5 compatible CASE:Lynk!

Where We're At

We've been hard at work making CASE:Lynk a reality.  The CASE:Lynk that you see in the videos is a real, working prototype.

With your support we can ensure people never run out of charge again.  While we are close to entering production, your contribution will help fund:

  • Production tooling
  • Large component order
  • Set up our distribution channel

Why We Need Your Funding

Through hard work we have proven the concept, refined the design, and finalized our production plans while establishing manufacturing partners.  Now we just need capital to cover the high initial costs of cutting steel tools and setting up our production lines.  We will use all of the Kickstarter funds to move CASE:Lynk into production and get yours packed and shipped right to your door.
