Users of the Galaxy Note 3 can now protect and charge their phones courtesy of a new cover from Samsung.

Selling for $70, the Galaxy Note 3 Wireless Charging S-View Flip Cover encases your phone, aka phablet, in polyurethane leather. When the cover is open, you can access the entire touch screen. When the cover is closed, you can still see the date and time on the home screen and swipe your way to other screens and menus. Notifications and other alerts also pop up without you having to open the case.

Best of all, the case can help juice up your Note 3 when power is low. Just swap the phone's current battery cover with the wireless charging flip cover. Place the phone on any Qi-compatible charging pad. And power flows through without the need to plug in charging cables.

The case is available in both black and white.
