The Turtle Shell was an idea created out of necessity. 
As an emergency first responder, I generally have limited space to carry things while working.  After upgrading my phone, I found a need to carry a phone charging cord along with my phone, as the battery life did not seem to last me through an entire 12 hour shift. The length of a standard cord just was not practical to carry. I also found that quite often I would forget my cord, either at work or at home.  Forgetting my cord meant my phone would lose battery life whenever a cord was not available.  I decided I needed a way to carry a charging cord with me at all times that I had my phone and that I needed that cord to be a reasonable size.

$1 from every case sold will go to, a charity that provides holiday shopping sprees for the children of fallen Police Officers.
