Apart from making you look ever so slightly daft, the problem with Apple’s AirPods is the same one you get with any wireless headphones: you live in constant fear of them conking out. Pebble creator Eric Migicovsky’s latest Kickstarter venture aims to fix that. The PodCase ($79) is an iPhone case that doubles up as a case for your Pods. Fitted within is a 2500 mAh battery which can apparently do one iPhone charge or up to 40 recharges for the AirPods. They’ve also included USB-C for charging the case itself. Amusingly, the product is billed as “slim” on Kickstarter, but put it this way: indie band frontmen are going to struggle fitting one into their jeans.
