It is still somewhat a head-scratcher to even think why some companies like Google and Apple are embracing this unnecessary trend... "let's get rid of the audio jack, cause why not?"
Obviously, if you think about it for a second, it is to boost wireless earphone sales. Although, there are still users out there who enjoy untangling a wired earphone rather than waiting 30 minutes to charge wireless ones. The iPhone was the first to set the trend that the majority of consumers hate – but every manufacturer loves. Encased saw a gap in the market and took on the challenge to design a gadget to fulfil the needs of consumers. Presenting the Audiomod!
The Audiomod is a case that snaps around the unfortunate, disabled iPhone, and gives it a 3.5mm port again. Not just that, it also acts as a secondary/external battery, which doubles your iPhone's battery life, using the same lighting connector as your iPhone.
Audiomod comes with a 3200-4600mAh battery backup that automatically switches to power-saving mode once your iPhone reaches full charge, and begins using the external battery for power when it senses your phone needs a boost. The gadget also offers a pretty remarkable 24-bit high-resolution audio quality.
With its slick form factor and the much-needed 3.5mm jack, you will hardly notice the difference, but you will experience the difference for sure.
