F.A.Q.

General Questions

A Smartcase is a phone case that protects your phone, with smart technology inside including an EnviroSensor. Smartcases are able to add new and improve existing features to your smartphone. This is achieved through snapping on Smartblades. The Smartcase automatically detects the Smartblades.

The Smartcase has a patented, magnetic attachment system which holds the Smartblade very securely onto the case.

Snapping on a Smartblade to the back of your Smartcase will add extra storage to your smartphone. Each Smartblade has both internal storage (depending on which you purchase) as well as a microSD slot for unlimited storage.

The Smartblade has 3600 mAh capacity which will give you more than an extra working days battery life.

Yes it does. Your phone will recharge as fast as your smartphone normally charges without the Smartcase.

The i-BLADES Smartcase has been developed using a new standard for wireless technology that is over 2 times faster than wireless charging technology available elsewhere. For example, a Qualcomm Qi 3.0 charger takes 2 times longer to charge a battery to the same level as i-Blades’ wireless technology. When the market trend is towards speed and fast charging, the wireless charging technology is far behind user demands and extremely slow.  In response to this i-BLADES has developed a new superior standard.

This standard is currently used in the transfer of power between the Smartblade to the phone.  The priority was to address the pain points of on-the-go-users as this is where the biggest battery life issues arise.  The technology will later be available through other accessories such as an i-BLADES wireless dock.

All Smartcases have an EnviroSensor built-in so you can monitor air quality where you are. Do you know we take between 17,000 to 23,000 breaths a day? We believe we should all know the air we are breathing.

We are working with partners on an exciting roadmap of new Smartblades from VR, to health, security and adding new sensor technology.  The Smartcase platform will detect all new smartblades that are made available.

We are planning on supporting lots of new models. We are continually increasing our range and supporting new smartphone models. Our initial portfolio is focused on major smartphone flagships.   But we get a lot of requests for new smartphones. If you want to know if we are planning to support your smartphone, email us or sign up to the mailing list below. We are open to adjusting our plans based on market feedback.

The short answer is that the Smartcase is removable from the Wallet.

Now, for example, if you want to hand your phone to someone to take a photograph of you with your significant other, you can snap-off the phone, with protective Smartcase, from your Wallet, and hand it to an obliging photographer without relinquishing your Wallet. When finished just Snap-On the Smartcase back to the Wallet.

Or, if you are taking a photo yourself, you can either take it with the phone in the Wallet, or snap-off the case from the Wallet for improved maneuverability.

And remember when phones were used to make phone calls? Well, with the Modular Wallet you can make or take a call with the phone in the Wallet, or just snap-off the case from the Wallet for more convenience.

Another example is if you want to watch a movie or simply enjoy social media you can remove the SmartCase from the wallet, set the wallet back in your pocket/desk/nightstand and enjoy the content without the added wallet weight and size.

The modularity gives you freedom to use the wallet and SmartCase together or separately as you choose.

Can I charge my phone using a SmartBlade directly to the SmartCase

Yes, when the SmartCase is not attached to the wallet you can snap the SmartBlade to the back of the SmartCase and charge the phone.

Can I charge my phone using a charge cable directly to the SmartCase

Yes, when the SmartCase is not attached to the wallet you can insert the charge cable directly to the SmartCase to charge your phone.

Can I charge my phone using a SmartBlade when the SmartCase is attached to the Wallet

Yes, when the SmartCase is attached to the wallet you can snap the SmartBlade to the back of the wallet and charge the phone.

How does the Turbo Blade work with a “Modular” Wallet?

When the Smartcase is snapped-on to the Wallet, you can snap-on the Turbo Blade to the back of the Wallet. The Turbo Blade provides back-up power and additional storage, which can both be managed by the i-BLADES SmartApp on your phone.

Similarly, when the Smartcase is snapped-off from the Wallet, you can snap-on the Turbo Blade directly to the back of the Smartcase.


Absolutely.  US Domestic shipping is free.  International shipping is a flat rate $55. We ship to most countries in the world.

All i-BLADES Smartcases can use any Smartblade. So you can share Smartblades with those that have Smartcases. Note for the memory functions each Smartblade has a public area and a private area that you control accessibility.

No, they are not.

Yes, Samsung Pay continues to work when the Smartcase is on the phone. The i-BLADES Smartcase does support NFC. There is no interference with our Smartcase and Smartblade. The NFC antenna is on the top of the phone above the cameras.
