    People ask... iPhone battery life has been getting better over time. The iPhone Xr has some serious battery cred. Great; battery life should be an afterthought. My wife tells me all the time: "Like many other yoga instructors, we have to leave our music running for hours, and plugging the phone in just isn't convenient". "I need the battery life to last a whole day, not just 'standby-time' but all-day of heavy use. I just couldn't get by without a battery case". I would rather go for three days, and just not think about it. The WUDN iPhone Battery Case, gives me that freedom.  

    Our classic wooden iPhone cases are hand-cut and handcrafted superior durability, quality and finish. The new iPhone Xs Max and Xr cases are form-fitted to your iPhone, staying true to your iPhone’s sleek and modern design while keeping your phone safe.

    Stop worrying about your phone slipping through your fingers. Our wooden iPhone battery cases comes equipped with our specialty sure grip surface, keeping your phone in the palm of your hand – no matter the conditions.

    iPhones straight from the box are notoriously slippery. The design of our new Xr & Xs Max cases add a bit of helpful size and weight. Thin-and-light sounds great, but IRL, it’s actually easier (and safer) to hold on to a phone with a little bit more heft.

    “This case feels great in the hand or pocket. Naked or with other slim cases I feel like I am going to drop my phone; Especially when typing with one hand”. Stephen H. Boise, ID.

    Wood battery case iphone xr, wood battery case iphone xs max, wooden battery case iphone xr, wooden battery case iphone xs max, mahogany battery case iphone xr, walnut battery case iphone xr, bamboo battery case iphone xr, cedar battery case iphone xr
    This is the phone case your new iPhone Xr or Xs Max deserves.
    And let’s not forget why you’re looking for a case to begin with; protecting your phone. The shock-absorbing frame protects your iPhone Xr and Xs Max from impacts even at the corners where your screen is most vulnerable.

    Our ultra-slim handheld design adds only 5.1 oz. of weight and 0.72 in. of thickness. That’s pretty thin as far as battery charging cases go, and these cases don’t have the ugly “Foot” found on most other iPhone battery cases.

    Simple & Safe Installation

    Our innovative “Easy Slide” technology makes it easy and save to remove and reinstall your case. The phone must slide straight up and down which prevents damage to the lightning port on the phone and inside the case.

    iPhone Xr Battery Case Features, iPhone Xs Max Battery Case Features

    Intuitive Power Indicator

    With 4 Level LED power level indicator, this battery case will let you know exactly the remaining battery life (0-25%-50%-75%-100%)

    Built-in Magnet

    With the built-in magnet, this case works flawlessly with magnetic car mounts (Magnetic car mount not included).

    iPhone Xr Battery Case Features, iPhone Xs Max Battery Case Built-In Magnet, works with magnetic car mounts

    This feature alone is typically an expensive add-on or worse, you already have some magnetic peripherals, and would need a case that snaps right into your ecosystem. 

    Advanced SYNC & Hassle-Free Charging

    Sync data to your Macbook, PC or laptop and charge your phone at same time without removing the case. Wireless charging capability does not work with the battery case installed.

    Why We WUDN

    Since the beginning, we have been focused on doing something different, not just for us, but for you. I couldn’t look at another cheap plastic phone case at the mall kiosk. First, they’re trash, but more important, there are literally millions of those cases in the world, maybe thousands just in your town. Part of our mission is making you distinctive; helping you express a little style in a world where everything is mass produced. A custom wooden case for your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy is a small thing, but for the one piece of electronics that literally never leaves your side, a bit of style can’t hurt.

     

     

    Wooden Battery Charging Phone Cases Fit all the Following iPhone Models:
    iPhone 6 / 6s - iPhone 6 / 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xr

    Battery Case Questions and Answers

    How long will the battery last?

    WUDN iPhone Xr and Xs Max Battery charging cases are designed to offer almost two full iPhone charges.

    This performance, of course, depends on a few other factors including background processes and whether you are actively using your phone while it's being recharged. And, don't forget, different phones burn battery at different rates, for instance, the X burns power at a faster rate and will not last as long as an iPhone 8 Plus in real world conditions. Tom’s Guide did some testing to prove it.

    Is the case covered in real wood?

    Yes, every iPhone battery charging case is covered in real wood. Each wood is hand selected by our team for beauty and uniqueness. Wood options for most all of our cases include Mahogany, Black Walnut, Carmalized Bamboo or Aromatic Cedar.

    How well does the case fit my phone?

    WUDN iPhone battery cases fit your phone perfectly. No blockage of the camera port and easy access to all ports and buttons.

    Does the case protect my camera?

    Yes, the phone camera is recessed behind the camera cutout. Although the camera is not covered, because that would result in potato quality photos, the camera should be safe from typical drops.

    Does the case protect my screen?

    Yes, our Xr and Xs Max battery cases have a slightly raised lip around the front edge to prevent your phone screen from touching surfaces when placed facedown. Of course, you should always add a glass screen protector.

    Will a phone case protect the resale value of my phone?

    Yes, keeping your phone in excellent condition goes a long way towards maintaining high resale and trade-in value. You should keep your phone in a case at all times - and always add a real glass (not plastic screen protector). As iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones get more expensive, the resale and trade-in value has been going up as well. For $25 now, you could add several hundred dollars to the value of your phone when it's time to upgrade.

    Can I still use Qi wireless charging?

    No, All battery charging cases interfere with Qi wireless charging. If you want to wirelessly charge your phone, remove the battery case and center the Qi receiver in the middle of your charging pad.

    Can the WUDN case be used with magnetic car and wall mounts?

    Yes. Our iPhone X, Xs, Xr, and Xs Max and the Flex series for iPhone 6, 7, and 8 Plus models have a built in steel plate for magnetic car and wall mounts. These cases work perfectly with magnetic mounts, right out of the box.

    Will I need a dongle for my headphones?

    No, WUDN battery cases come with a properly sized cutout for the headphone port (on iPhone 6 models) and lightning port. You will NOT need a dongle for your headphones.

    How do you make a wooden cell phone case?

    We did a long form blog post about that complete with pictures and videos. Take a look: We Built a Laser Engraved Phone Case from Scratch

    Should I buy more than one WUDN battery case?

    Of course. We offer battery cases in multiple wood styles, but even better, we offer slim-cases that are thin and light for those times you don't need a full battery case. I love my battery case, but sometimes I want to slip my phone in a light jacket pocket and I know I will only be out for a few hours or just not burning through a whole iPhone battery. We have a number of designs from cool artistic skulls to the "Sawtooth Mountains Traveler", and most of our cases are available in different wood types and species. You should have a couple of cases, at least, to change your style to match the moment. Monday through Friday in the office call for a simple, conservative case, and Friday's in the club call for something with a bit more style.

    What is TPU and why do I care?

    Thermoplastic Urethane - A hybrid material, TPU is a mixture between hard plastic and soft silicone. A very dense and smooth rubber, TPU cases are made to slide in and out of the pocket easily, without attracting lint. TPU cases are more durable, slightly elastic and much stronger than silicone. WUDN uses TPU case templates which are then covered by real wood.

    Will the wood get stained and ugly?

    It could, but unlike plastic and other synthetic materials, our wood cases actually get better looking over time. We ship our cases with only one light layer of polyurethane. This means the case will age and the more you use it, the more the wood will look authentic and vintage. Some artisans actually use coffee to stain wood in beautiful mocha hues. (make sure your phone is out of the case when you decide to drop it in your coffee).

    Should I get matching sunglasses made of wood?

    Duh. How cool are you on Saturday afternoon with a Bamboo phone case and matching Bamboo Frame Sunglasses. Seriously.

    Can I customize or personalize my phone case?

    We don't offer custom options for our battery cases but for everything else, we have a full custom shop here. The process is simple: find your image or logo (in black and white - jpg format) and send it to us. Pretty straightforward. We will get to work on design and production right away. You can also customize or personalize a matching journal/planner, mousepad or flask. How cool to have a personalized wooden phone case and a set of matching wood accessories.

      Wooden Phone Cases Fit all the Following iPhone & Samsung Galaxy Models:

          Can I Customize or Personalize My WUDN iPhone Case?

          Your phone is boring. Your phone case is boring. Even our beautiful wooden phone cases; better, but still boring.

          Your phone may not define you, but it is an important part of how the world sees you. I know you paid extra for your iPhone Xr or Xs Max, and that helps to set you apart, but seriously, now you just hold the same premium phone owned by 88 Million other people in the world.

          So what’s the answer to all this sameness, all this boringness? Maybe, a custom wood iPhone case laser engraved with your favorite logo, image or monogram.

          Can I do a cool monogram design with my initials? Can I do an image of my cat? Can I upload original artwork? Done, done and done.

          You want to keep it simple and elegant? Pick from one of our monogram styles.

          Custom iPhone Xr, Custom iPhone Xs Max, Personalized iPhone Xr, Personalized iPhone Xs Max, Monogrammed iPhone Xr, Monogrammed iPhone Xs Max

          This “custom” idea, works even better for gifts. I reject buying gift cards – buying an actual present is better, but a customized product demonstrates your deep thoughtfulness.

          So how does it work?

          1. Choose your product and choice of wood.
          2. On the product page upload your artwork or select a monogram style.

          • The New 2018 Apple iPhone Xs - Everything You Need to Know

            0 comments / Posted by Cameron Christian

            Apple iPhone X, iPhone Xs, iPhone 10s, iPhone Xs Max, New 2018, WUDN, Wooden Phone Case

            Just a year after the release of the original iPhone X, Apple is back with a revamped 2018 phone lineup with multiple new handsets, starting with the iPhone Xs pronounced "iPhone 10 S" – all improving on last year’s $1,000+ flagship phone: The iPhone X now has a super-sized big brother in the new iPhone Xs Max.

            Here’s the Short Version (TL;DR* for those in the know)

            • It's equipped with a dual-lens 12-megapixel camera on the back of the phone.
            • Its battery lasts 30 minutes longer than last year's iPhone X, Apple said.
            • The camera has "zero shutter lag," Apple said, so it should be able to snap photos fairly quickly.
            • It also supports two SIM cards, allowing you to use two phone numbers on one phone.
            • It has IP68 water-resistance, so it can be submerged in water about 6 feet deep for up to 30 minutes.
            • Apple's chip is called A12 Bionic and has special hardware for machine learning.
            • Apple said its facial-recognition software, Face ID, is the "most secure facial authentication ever in a smartphone."
            • The display is covered with a "new formulation" of glass that Apple said is stronger than that of previous iPhones.
            • The display has a high-dynamic color range that's 60% wider than previous models.
            • Your existing iPhone X case will fit the new iPhone Xs, but not the Xs Max or the Xr. Both of those are completely new sizes and will require new case designs. 

            And a link to Apple’s massively over-produced video.

            Available in gold, silver, and dark gray, the smaller Xs sport a 5.8-inch screen, and the new Xs Max gets a huge 6.5-inch screen that’s larger than a Samsung Galaxy Note 9; both with OLED display technology for rich colors in pictures and videos. Amazingly these devices are not any larger than previous models. Thanks to the slimmer bezels, the iPhone Xs Max is only the same size as last year’s iPhone 8 Plus.

            Apple says its OLED screens are even brighter and refresh at 120Hz. The screen now offers HDR support for enhanced viewing and smoothness, and the rumor that 3D Touch was going away turns out to be nonsense. A good viewing experience isn’t just about the screen: sound matters too. For those of you that aren’t married to your headphones, Apple has given both phones new speakers and their calling it “wide stereo sound”.

            The Future of Face ID

            It took me a while to love Face-ID. Thankfully Apple is only making improvements. So, of course, all three models are getting notches on top for all the sensors required to pull off Face ID.

            Inside that little notch is an ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, flood illuminator, infrared camera, and a 3D dot projector that can scan your face to make sure that you—and hopefully only you—can unlock your device. Apple claims an upgrade of the iPhone’s algorithms means Face ID recognizes you faster.

            2018 Camera Improvements

            On to the single best feature of new mobile devices: Apple has redesigned the iPhone Xs’ camera with dual 12-MP sensors: one for wide-angle shots, and one for telephoto. And both cameras will come with optical image stabilization. When you shoot your world with portrait mode or special depth effects, both cameras work together to add extra dimension to your shots. Not sure what “Extra Dimension” really means. We need to see it in action before accepting the gospel from Cupertino.

            And for 2018, Apple’s new Smart HDR feature will now shoot a four-shot burst to make sure you don’t miss anything, and maybe improve the chances of catching that perfect shot.

            Battery Life

            More an evolution than a revolution, Apple says the standard X will last 30 minutes longer than last year’s iPhone X. That’s an incremental increase at best. This is where Apple uses every bit of the larger devices to cram in more battery. The iPhone Xs Max features the biggest battery Apple has ever put in an iPhone, resulting in an extra 90 minutes of runtime compared to today’s iPhone X. If you can handle the larger devices, you will probably love the new batteries.

            Does Anyone Care About SIM Cards?

            If you travel internationally is matters and both the iPhone Xs and Xs Max come with space for dual SIMs. Switching between carriers should be a breeze.

            Price and availability

            Both the iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB storage sizes, with the smaller Xs starting at $1,000, and the larger Xs Max starting at $1,100. They will be available for pre-order on Friday, September 14, with shipments going out a week later, on September 21st.
