We've seen some nifty cases here and there, but there's one in particular that's caught our eye as of late - the Magnetyze case, by BuQuTech. These cases are unique in that they offer an alternate way to charge your phone. Most cases are either just for protection or use the same charging method - the Magnetyze cases, however, magnetically connects to a small wire or a docking station rather than plugging a cable directly to your phone.

One thing largely advertised by the Magnetyze cases is their convenience: plugging in and out seems to be a hassle for most people. With this case-and-charger series, you simply need to put your phone near the vicinity of the small magnetic wire or docking station, and watch as it clings onto the charger itself.

On top of that, the Magnetyze charger units themselves will work with the rest of their products - meaning, if you get a new phone, you only need to replace the case, and the charger will still work. That's a fairly useful feature considering more specialty-products these days are requiring you to buy an entire new unit.

The Magnetyze cases are up for a CTIA's Emerging Technology award. If you're already a Magnetyze user or if you think the product seems pretty unique, then follow the link below to vote!
