World's First Smartcase
Setting up your Smartcase
Congratulations on owning an i-BLADES Elite Smartcase. You are one of the first owners of this next generation Smartcase. You will now be able to expand the capabilities of your Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone. The Smartcase protects your phone. The Turbo 64 Smartblade that comes with the Smartcase will:
- Increase battery life by 12 hours.
- Offer an additional 64GB memory expansion.
- Adds a microSD slot to your smartphone.
The Smartcase is compatible with future Smartblades.
The unit you have received is a beta unit. See below for information on how to set up. As a beta unit there will be software updates over the coming weeks that will improve your overall experience. As one of our early users we would value your feedback to add to those ideas we have to improve and update the experience.
1. Put the Elite Smartcase on and snap on the Smartblade
Please note these steps will change as we update the software in the next few weeks.
Step 1: Insert Galaxy S6 smartphone into Smartcase. Pushing down to ensure the connector in the bottom of the case goes into the smartphone.
Step 2: Place Smartblade on the back of the Smartcase. Lining up the 3 small pins on the bottom of the Smartblade with the three discs on the Smartcase. The Smartblade will snap on firmly and securely as you bring the two together.
Its as easy as that!
Once the Smartblade is placed on the Smartcase the battery will be charging your phone already. Check this by looking at the charging icon on the top right of your smartphone.
You now also have additional memory added as well as an expandable microSD slot. Please read below to see how to use this and transfer files/photos/videos to your Smartblade.

You can recharge the smartblade two ways:

The Smartblades are stackable so you charge multiple Smartblades simultaneously. Plug the charging cable into the bottom Smartblade’s USB.
