From the Manufacturer
BungeeAir takes a smart, safe, and simple approach to provide the first line of defense to keep your iPhone from being left behind or stolen. The smartest way to keep this valuable asset safe is to simply keep it with you. BungeeAir is based on extremely powerful and efficient wireless technology that instantly creates a connection between your phone and a compact key fob to create a security tether, keeping your phone and fob aware of each other's location. This tether reminds you if you leave the phone or fob behind and beyond eyeshot.
How Does the BungeeAir System Work?
Forgetting or leaving your phone behind with all your data and assets unprotected is troubling, but being disconnected from your world of contacts can be an even bigger issue. BungeeAir Power is perfect for the professional on the go who relies on their iPhone to be productive throughout the day. It is the essential 3-in-1 accessory for iPhone: a wireless security tether, battery, and case. Simply place the iPhone in the protective battery case and attach the BungeeAir fob to your keys, purse, or badge, and it will sound an alert if you leave your phone behind, before it can get out of your sight. A required companion app lets you customize the security settings, and as an added feature it can help you find your fob and attached misplaced keys.
How Does the "Remind" Feature Work?
Whenever you and your phone are separated, BungeeAir locks the iPhone's screen automatically and immediately sends an alert to the BungeeAir fob. The fob's alarm activates with sound and vibration to alert you that the wireless security tether is broken and your phone has been left behind. You can use your fob to turn off the alert and/or lock your phone so you know your phone and data are safe. The distance when the tether is considered broken, short or long, can be tuned by the BungeeAir app to suit the environment you are in.
How Does the "Secure" Feature Work?
In the event that you and your phone are separated, and the wireless security tether is broken, the battery case attached to your iPhone instantly invokes iPhone's passcode security. The phone is locked and an alert is automatically sent to the BungeeAir fob. In this instance you have the confidence to know you've activated a first line of defense: your password screen has been activated, preventing anyone from unauthorized access to your phone and information.
How Does the "Find" Feature Work?
The two-way wireless security tether lets you find your phone or BungeeAir fob when they are separated but within proximity of each other. If you want to find your misplaced fob, simply press the "find" button from the companion app on the phone and the fob alarms with sound and vibration. If you have misplaced your phone, you can press the "find" button on the fob to sound an alarm from the phone.
About the BungeeAir App
For the BungeeAir family of products, download the required, free companion Kensington BungeeAir App (available separately as a download from iTunes) for the total solution to secure and protect your iPhone against loss and unapproved use. The BungeeAir App alerts you when your phone is left behind and prevents others from seeing the screen or accessing files. In addition you can use the wireless security tether function to find your iPhone or BungeeAir fob.

LOVED the battery idea... $99.99 price tag (Fry's Electronics) Ouch, but on the other hand, what is the cost of a lost phone? Or keys left in the car, or ... Yeah, well worth it...
If only it worked...
The first time I wanted to smash the thing into tiny pieces was when I was talking to a company during a phone interview... Well, I was driving (not good, but was the only time I could get)... And with the keys in the ignition... the phone at my ear... 14-18" away....
It LOCKED the Phone, oh, and to be nice, it also ended my phone call!!
They called back.... 2 minutes later, it did it again!!
I set the thing to Disarmed... 50' My Butt... (or 30' as is listed in this listing) - I had it set on Long range...
Now, with it Disarmed - (FOB has to be ON in order to Disarm the freaking phone... Right... In fact, it hangs trying to Init if it is off)
It keeps locking the phone... I know it isn't because of a timeout or anything because I have that turned off... It locks it after 3-5 SECONDS of inactivity... No kidding SECONDS...
Sometimes it sits there for a long time and doesn't lock it...
Great idea being able to charge the battery... Well worth $30-$40 for the device.
The device USES A LOT OF POWER OFF THE iPHONE BATTERY!! Seriously! from 8 Am to 4 pm I ended up at 17% power left, as a test, the next day I ran my phone from 8:30 to 5:30 and have 66% left - WITHOUT the device attached...Read more ›
Price: at around $50 is lower than several other cases, and also lower than MSRP.
Form Factor: Slim though a bit longer than iPhone.
Features: Battery back up, key fob, security for phone and keys, free iPhone app.
Battery drain seems higher with case than on iPhone 4s without case
False alarms: with key fob and phone within two feet from each other and on same person, occasional false alarms.
Syncing and connection issues via proprietary USB charging port. When phone is removed from case it connects flawlessly via iPhone charging cable.
With Kensington proprietary USB port, one looses native iPhone docking capabilities, including loss of display out feature.
Frequent shutdown of phone even in midst of use and when app is disarmed with both phone and fob on pron. This last con is really a pain with frequent disconnection of calls.
Overall: Great concept but very poor execution that would frustrate you to the point of having to stop using it. Don't waste your money like I have, especially with prohibitive return shipping charges at my end.
