    75% of the players are already walking around with a battery pack in their pocket. Might as well a cable to their pants and down to the shoes that generates power with each step.

    Honestly, 10,000 mah battery is something I would buy. I work in some labs where service is absolutely horrible and my phone is pretty much dead at the end of the work day. I never have the phone in my pocket, usually just on the desk so I have some service for calls and such.

    Or days where I'm working and I go to the airport and I don't have time to charge it. I don't mind the battery pack I have but a snap on plate would be much easier.

    A Lifeproof mod/case with extra juice would be interesting

    Stackable mods so there can be more than one. This way they can offer a Swiss Army Knife bundle.

    Would be nice to see a waterproof case for 3m that floats but with physical buttons for the shutter, zoom in/out, video recording button, flash on/off, and wrist strap.

    A high end audio DAC with headphone jack that also doubles as a battery pack.

    I like the idea of a thin back cover with wireless charging, too. That would make wireless charging more convenient without the extra bulk of a large battery.

    What about a phone mounting system for cars? It could be constructed so that clamping the phone would be unnecessary. The phone would just magnetically be held in place by the moto mod (the phone being held in place by the mod rather than the other way around). The phone could be charged through the mount as well as an auxiliary audio jack for systems that don’t have Bluetooth.

    Having heard a couple people mention heat issues, I'm thinking someone could make a really sweet looking aluminum heatsink mod. Go ahead & build in a headphone jack (maybe even high end audio DAC like Cajun_Mike mentioned if it's small enough)& wireless charging pad to really make it useful & awesome.

    Yes, just a wireless charging mod. Don't need a badonkadonk battery.

    "Is that a 2200mAh battery mod, or are you just glad to see me?"

    I would like a case that would cover and protect the battery mod. I personally use Otterbox and have for years. They have cases available on the website, Otterbox, but nothing that will cover and protect the battery.

    You mean by itself or a case for the whole thing? It's probably easy for Dbrand to make a skin.

    That's one of the really big downsides to this approach to mods - there's no standard shape for cases to adhere to (except with no mods attached, or a bumper that's open for mods). If a particular battery mod is popular enough, I could see someone making a case to go around it and the phone, but it's likely the case makers will wait & see how well things sell first.

    I don't think that's practice unless they focus on one specific battery.

    I would love to see a mod that turns the back of the phone into a secondary e-ink display. I would even prefer for it to cover the camera to put a 5.5 inch display on the back. It would be nice to carry around an ebook reader on my phone, plus all of the other plusses it would bring.

    I got the best idea...... I really shouldn't share it. Extended battery with headphone jack and solar charging. Maybe even a version with a smaller solar panel and add wireless charging.

    A solar panel that can "at the very least" charge the external battery is a great idea

    I believe the external charges the internal so technically you end up charging both

    How about a gaming mod? Maybe with bumpers and triggers, like a console controller. Lots of games already use virtual dual "thumbsticks" on the screen, so this would complete the emulation of console gaming.

    Or, how about a modified StyleShell design that has a 4-way configurable kickstand?

    Or, how about additional sensors for use in a Google Cardboard/Daydream headsets, so you can emulate the benefit of Samsung Gear?

    I was thinking the other day about the potential for mods aimed at commercial use.

    - barcode scanner
    - industry specific scanners/sensors (medical, industrial)
    - credit card reader
    - construction industry tools (sonic measuring, others?)

    Also
    - full size usb port? (probably easier just to use an adapter, but perhaps there is some niche need/use)
    - SD card reader for photographers dumping photos from DSLR card

    I've wondered if for some commercial uses, the addition of an optional set screw / security screw might be good for the platform. I'm not sure I see the platform taking off in the commercial space, but if it were to, I'd think equipment owners would want to have the option to secure mods to devices.

    I still haven't heard any info on video output from the Z/Zf. There's casting of course, but any wireless display will have some lag, and I'm thinking about basically a bluetooth keyboard/mouse plus connection to a monitor. Lapdock could be cool too. I still have one that I got cheap that was meant for the Bionic, which I modified (reversed one of the connectors) to work with my old Droid Razr. Worked reasonably well. Something built now would probably be excellent.

    Id like to see possibly an improvement with the two great mods that most of us have. The JBL Speaker I would think has room to be at least half the size it is now in terms of thickness. The other would to produce another option of the battery mod to reflect thinner and lighter,even if it produces less juice. The Force already has a forever long battery shelf life so thinner and lighter battery mod would still do the job and then some at even half of what the current produce. Also battery mods in a variety of colors and textures. Carbon Fiber Texture comes to mind which would pretty jam up to me personally. Plus if its top grade 3M type material, it would be great for enhanced grip with no slippery feel. Ive used 3M mterial that was 1080 and it held up to everything. Even to outside conditions. I used it on my truck I had and wrapped some exterior Chevy bow ties. It held up to everything and literally looked like paint. That being said, if none of the companies do this with the carbon fiber then I will just pick up an extra battery mod and wrap it myself. To take it even further, I may just do this project today now. When wrapped right it looks like its stock and was made that way. Ill post some pics of this project that Ive now just talked myself into doing lol
