You’ll never have to be afraid of having your smartphone go dead again with the AMPWARE iPhone case.

The ‘CrankCase’ is available for iPhone 5/5S and iPhone 6, it comes with a built-in charger, which is powered by a generator that operates with a crank—a minute of cranking is expected to keep the phone running for an additional 40 minutes.

The crank arm can also doubled as a kickstand, letting you enjoy videos and other content more conveniently. It also comes with a USB port, allowing you to use the case as a charger for other devices.

While the cases for the other smartphones are still under development, the company has designed the ‘CrankBox’ that is suitable for charging all kinds of devices on the go.

Hop on over to its Indiegogo campaign to fund the project.
