There’s been a lot of talk around the internet recently about the Incipio Feather case for the iPhone 6. It’s lightweight, priced reasonably, and available in eight different colors. It’s a perfectly nice iPhone 6 case, but it’s certainly not the thinnest case around. On Incipio’s site, the Feather case is listed as 1.524mm thick. That’s certainly nothing to scoff at, but if you’re looking for the absolute thinnest iPhone 6 cases, there are plenty of options that are a fraction of the Incipio Feather’s thickness.

Battery fires are a big deal. They don’t just maim people, destroy expensive equipment and information, they also cost a lot of money and hold technology back. Sony had to recall about 10 million laptop batteries in 2006 due to fire risks, and the giant reportedly strained under the weight of that burden. Tesla Motors faced a major crisis at just the prospect of a recall over fires in its Tesla Model S, and even without it the company had to work to regain public trust. So, the next-generation of battery technology had better bring advances in safety as well as energy density — or, perhaps we can invent a safer version of the batteries we already have.
