Super-chic Logitech Case+ for iPhone and cool UE Mini Boom speaker giveaway!

I love my mobile. And I'm happy to have finally found some slick accessories for it that are beautifully-designed and functional too. The folks at Logitech recently sent me three products from their new super-chic case+ range for iPhone 5/5S to trial. I immediately fell for the case+drive phone mount for the car and my husband snapped up the case+energy spare battery pack (he just had to have it).

The system starts with a case+ iPhone case with magnetic panel on the back. The magnet connects the phone with accessories in the range, and also means you can pop your mobile up on the fridge (or any other metal surface) to use as a timer or to read recipes.

Here are the three accessories that I tested:
This product really has made a huge impact on my life. I was forever fumbling for my phone in the car (while stopped of course) and couldn't view my beloved Google Maps directions while driving. The case+drive magnetic phone mount has an uber-cool design, and works like a dream. I literally jump in the car and touch the mobile to the mount and it's securely attached (no messing with awkward clips and cradle on traditional mounts). It's perfect for using bluetooth in the car and I'm not distracted by alerts on my phone in my bag. Love it to bits. It also comes with a metal patch to pop inside your phone case if you don't have an iPhone 5, or for a second family phone (any brand). Perfect.

If you've ever been stuck with a low battery and no charging cable or outlet, you might like the case+energy. You can boost your mobile's battery level by clicking the spare battery onto the case+ cover.

The case+tilt system is a folding panel stand for the iPhone that allows you to view videos or images in landscape view hands-free. The coloured panels snap on to the magnetic case+ back. You could even set up your mobile as an alarm clock. And double duty - the folding panel can be used as an earbud cord wrap.
