Lumee Duo is an iPhone case with built-in illumination
The LuMee Duo is an iPhone case that, thanks to rubber edges and a solid shell, offers protection for your device. But it also comes with a feature that many mobile photographers will appreciate: Integrated LEDs on the front and back. They offer a brighter and softer illumination than the phone's built-in LED flash, making it an interesting option for those who frequently take smartphone images in dim light conditions.
The LEDs are dimmable, and Lumee also claims they reduce the red-eye effect in flash photos. The case comes with a built-in battery that provides power for up to two hours and for 36 hours at the lowest brightness. The Lumee is available for iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and comes in Black Matte, Gold Matte and Rose Matte.
The Lumee Duo launched initially in December in the USA and Canada, but is now available on Apple.com and at Apple stores in 15 additional countries, including Australia, China, Germany, Japan and the UK. Depending on phone model prices range from $40 to $70. More information is available on Lumee.com.
