It’s a match made in smartphone heaven. Mophie, one of the best-selling popular smartphone battery brands, is partnering with Otterbox, one of the world’s largest smartphone case makers, to bring beefy batteries and wireless charging adapters to the Otterbox Universe Case System for the iPhone.

Otterbox’s Universe Case System, which the company showed off at the Consumer Electronics Show back in January, is a modular protector that fits camera lenses, expandable memory, battery packs, speakers, and more on a rail hidden beneath a removable cover. It’s really durable, too — the Universe Case is certified with Otterbox’s Drop+ Protection, and cushions against bumps and drops with an anti-shock layer and raised bevel lip. And thanks to Mophie, it can extend your phone’s battery life.
