Last month, I was scrolling through a website, and I found an iPhone 15 case by a brand called Aulumu. It immediately caught my eye, and I started to look into this brand a bit more. They had a unique look and style. Their accessories had a futuristic, Cyberpunk-like design, yet they maintained a minimalistic appeal.
Let’s start with their iPhone cases. They offer two different types: the A15 vegan leather case and the A15 translucent case. My personal favorite is the vegan leather case. It strikes a fantastic balance between providing protection and not being too bulky. It looks and feels premium due to the vegan leather material. The case has some metallic accents, like a “cooling vent” on the back, which adds to its aesthetic. The matte black buttons, including the action button and the camera lip, are very tactile and satisfying to use.
Aulumu also offers a translucent series of cases that provide the same aesthetics but with a different texture. These cases are a bit more rigid and sturdy, offering enhanced protection for your iPhone. They have responsive buttons that are satisfying to click. All these cases are MagSafe-compatible, work with a screen protector, and have some passive cooling features.
Let’s start with the G05 accessory, which is one of the most unique MagSafe accessories I’ve come across. It has an attractive circular magnet with an extending arm. The accessory is made entirely of metal, and it rotates smoothly due to the strong magnets. What sets the G05 apart is its four different modes. You can use the metallic arm to stand your phone up both vertically and horizontally, and it can also function as a grip to hold your phone securely.
Aulumu also offers a MagSafe battery pack that complements their design language perfectly. This power bank provides an extra 3500mAh of battery and charges at 5W, so it’s not the fastest wireless charger, but it gets the job done. Aulumu’s charging station is among the best-designed ones I’ve ever used. It’s efficiently packaged in a slim, flat box to minimize waste. The charger can be laid flat or unfolded to create a stand. It adheres to the same aesthetic as Aulumu’s other accessories and is more than just a charger. It offers:
– 15W fast MagSafe charging
– 5W charging pad for AirPods
– 2.5W Apple Watch charger
– USB-C out that supports 10W charging
– A small adjustable night light with three modes
This charging station accommodates all your Apple devices and even has an extra port for a fourth device. It’s easy to carry with you because it folds flat, but it can also serve as your stationary charging hub when propped up as a stand. It also supports the new Standby mode on iOS 17. The built-in night light is a nice touch, although some users may wish the Apple Watch charger were propped up because it’s not ideal for closed-loop bands like the solo loop.
