Pinephone Pro battery case
#1
Hi everyone,

I remember once upon a time it was mentioned that there would be a battery case for the Pinephone /Pinephone pro; seeing the current state of things, I would say that the project has been scraped. Any chance to know why? I don't think it would be expensive to manufacture such a thing for Pine64, and seeing the issues with the battery life of the PPP it would be highly appreciated (if it doesn't add a crazy thickness to the phone, of course).

Cheers

There are community-designed 3D printing source files for adapters that allow you to fit a back cover with a built-in power bank, designed for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, to at least the original PinePhone (not sure whether you can make it fit the PinePhone Pro as well).

Those files are not provided by me, nor by Pine64. So I cannot vouch for their usefulness. For any questions, contact the authors of the designs.

Yeah, I saw that, but I was referring to something made specifically for the pinephone. Like the LoRa and the wireless charge one. The one you quoted is ugly AF, and turns the Pinephone into a behemoth
