Default Leather case for ZeroLemon battery

Cutting leather right now to build an initial prototype. Is their any interest for a handmade leather wallet case with built in space for ZeroLemon battery and hidden connections?

NOT selling... Seeing if interest exists...

This sounds amazing, actually. I've given up on the Zerolemon because of the overall bulk. I'm interested to see if what you rig up has a slimmer profile.

Great. Initial idea is to have phone on right side as normal but have zero lemon battery on left side behind or below credit card profile. Have you seen a 90 angle cord for microusb or the zero lemon plug before?

My goal is to match the size of any normal leather phone case and have battery hidden in compartment with small cord to travel through hidden area to phone.

Would the phone being useable in case be best or a slip case that you pull phone out of be better?

Buying leather tomorrow, every thing else ready to cut.

Thanks,
J

The more that I think about is, is the zerolemon battery the best option? Any extra battery could be used... Opinions? Smallest is best.

For simplicity's sake, why not utilize the battery behind the phone design and u-adapter from the zerolemon? You can add a flap with card slots on the left side and still have a somewhat slim profile if you keep everything snug.

That's probably best. I will have to put something behind the top of the phone to take up that room. Maybe a change holder or similar.
