Logitech is dipping its toe deeper into the iPhone accessory market with a new iPhone 5/5S case "system" that features a suite of add-on accessories that attach magnetically to a base case called the Case+.

The magnetically mounted additions to the Case+ include the +Tilt, a kickstand and cord keeper; the +Energy, a Mophie-like battery extender (it's rated to double your iPhone's battery life); +Drive, a mount for a car window or dashboard; and the +Wallet, which gives you a place store your credit cards and cash without carrying a wallet.

The Logitech Case+ collection is due to be available in the US this month (May) with a suggested retail price of $199.99. (For more info, go to the Case+'s product page).

While the concept is interesting, that $200 price tag seems pretty pricey. But once we get our hands on the system, we'll be able to better tell you whether it's worth the dough.
