From the Manufacturer

Kensington BungeeAir Wireless Leash and Battery Features
An essential 3-in-1 accessory for your iPhone: wireless security tether, battery, and case. Learn more

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.

Kensington BungeeAir Remind Feature
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.

Kensington BungeeAir Secure Feature
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.

Kensington BungeeAir Find Feature
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.

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.

After waiting nearly a week (super saver shipping) - I finally received my case and set it up with my iPhone 4S. I like the idea of doubling the battery life, but I experienced the following problem. I have the phone in my left pocket, and the keyfob in the right, and the application would reset, and beep because it lost contact with the phone. I called Kensington support who told me they had a similar call from someone else with an iPhone 4S purchasing this case from Amazon, and instructed me to return the case for a replacement from Amazon. He assured me it should work with the iPhone 4S (though the box I received only indicated iPhone 4) I am again waiting for the case and will update my review if the new one works - I have my doubts. - My replacement came within a week, and I still have random beeps from the fob, even when I have both items on me. To be honest, I am very happy with the case itself, and it protects the phone very well, and I like the extended battery life. My only other comment is that you cannot use this case with any of the standard iPod stands or docking stations, since it connects via a Mini-USB cable which will charge the phone and the extra battery, plus it replaces the iPod cable for syncing to iTunes.

I found this product through a CES 2012 review and purchased it from Amazon. Shipping was fine. It was actually delivered one day earlier than scheduled. I've had an iPhone 4s since day one and worry about losing it, so when I saw this product it struck me as a perfect solution for some battery problems and security. Unfortunately, it's poorly made, has 10-15 false alarms or dropped connection with the key fob every day and when the connection with the key fob fails it will try to re-initialize forever. Frequent loss of connection with key fob when it is less than 2 feet away. The app is a heavy drain on the phone battery. The additional battery power provided by the case is nice and does work well. The range for the distance between the key fob and iPhone is at most 15 feet which is fine for me, but if you need the advertised distance of 50-75 feet don't count on it. This product adds a lot of weight to the phone. I would not purchase this product again.

Ok, I thought that It would be AWESOME... I Loved the idea that if I left the phone I'd get notified.. Liked the find my phone/keys option...
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...

Well, I thought this was a great idea (and it is), and I also thought that this would be a feature that might save me! Having played with the device for many weeks after the novelty has worn off, I am sorry to report that this product is a failure. I received way too many false alarms and the range of separation between the fab and the base unit was smaller than desired. I thought I could live with that by silencing the alarm via the mute button when it went off. Well, I could.....for about 15-20 seconds then the alarm goes off again. Long story short, I have turned off the fab and when I loose my phone, I'm going to be even more upset with this product! Also, the coating on the device started to wear off after a few day of use. My 6-8 week device now looks 3-5 years old. I would strongly recommend looking at another battery option for your iPhone!

Ok, so I've had this case in use for a few weeks and only this last week I've begun experiencing what so many have written about. Initially the case did exactly what it said it would do but now it is simply a pain to deal with and I'm returning mine unless a quick fix is found:

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.
