Recall alert: These glitter-filled iPhone cases are burning people. Yikes!

If you or your tween or teen loves those glitter-filled iPhone cases, you know, the ones with liquid and floating sparkles and designs, you’ll want to check the manufacturer stat. The CPSC has recently issued a recall because there have been numerous reports that the liquid inside could cause chemical burns. Eep. Related: 5 fun rainbow iPhone cases These cases, all made by manufacturer MixBin Electronics, have been sold in places like Amazon, Henri Bendel, and Nordstrom Rack, just to name a few, and in about 24 reported cases (so far, that is), the chemical inside has leaked out...

Solid as a rock.

I’ve been in the mood for a new iPhone case, which is how I discovered these fun geode cases at Society 6. While they’re not real geodes (I know, stating the obvious here), they really do look like the real thing. Such a bright, colorful way to keep your iPhone safe, all summer long, and right now, they’re 20% off plus free shipping. Whoo! Here are just a few of my favorites from the artist TheQuarry. You can also search around the site for other geode cases from other designers. Related: Over 30 of the coolest iPhone cases for every...

This charging device backs up your phone so you don’t have to remember to do it.

If you’re like me, remembering to back up your cell phone is one task that falls through the cracks. But it’s probably one of the most important things we all need to do. But, that’s all changed since I was introduced to the MEEM back up charger for iPhone (and Android). And no, I don’t mean that it’s my second backup charger if my first one bites the dust. With the MEEM, you’re actually backing up the data on your phone while it charges. With absolutely zero effort. (And that’s my kind of effort level these days). CMT is an rstyle affiliate.

A pastel phone case pretty enough to eat. But don’t. Because it’s a phone case.

Sometimes I see a phone accessory so gorgeous, I just want to eat it up. Which I know sounds weird, until you see the beautiful ice cream-colored pastel leather wallet-style phone cases for iPhone and Galaxy phones, via UK’s Snakehive London. Take a look at the pink leather Samsung Galaxy 8 case here and you can see you get more than just a pretty case. A rubberized holder (or uh, rubberised if you’re a Brit) and magnetic clasp secures your phone inside, while the bifold structure converts to a stand for small-screen binge-watching. Or, slightly larger-screen binge-watching, if you’re...

I Am Groot! That’s Groot speak for, I am here to charge your phone.

With the geeks among us getting excited for the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 premiere in just one month and one day (and yes, I’m counting shut up), I figured I wouldn’t be the only one dying to reconnect with Baby Groot once again. Especially in the form of this completely wonderful Baby Groot USB car charger. No he doesn’t sound like Vin Diesel, but he is sound-activated (Peter Quill would suggest The Pina Colada song) so he’ll dance around in your cup holder while charging your phone. Plus the geniuses at Think Geek who designed him even knew to include two charging ports. Because the...
