    Is this the right thread to ask where I can get a USB-C compatible power bank for the Lumia 950XL?

    Failing that, a spare USB-C plug and cable?
    I've ordered this Choetech cable and it's been great: http://www.amazon.com/Cable-CHOETECH...pUvbUpU3461987.

    Choetech also has some power banks (not all are USB-C rapid chargers, so read carefully) and I suspect they would work great, too.

    I tried many USB-C cables, and, apart from the official one, they fail to charge the device.

    Thanks.

    Which cable did you try?

    Let us know which case you decided on. I am also interested in a rugged case. I have a decent one with a kickstand that doesn't easily slip either.

    At the moment I`m using this case:
    http://www.amazon.com/MoKo-Lumia-950-Case-Polycarbonate/dp/B0142CDZ2Q/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1462357577&sr=8-6&keywords=950+xl+moko
    I like the texture on the back it provides a lot of grip and at least looks protective (have not dropped the 950 xl with it)
    The screen is protected by:
    http://www.amazon.com/Protector-Nillkin-Tempered-Anti-glare-Anti-fingerprints/dp/B01CWUZEE2/ref=sr_1_sc_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1462357845&sr=8-2-spell&keywords=950+xl+nilkin
    it fits pretty well and does not lift at the edges.
    and for some extra protection i got this:
    Amazon.com: Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Case, Shocksock [IMPACT SHOCK RESISTANT] [Black] Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Neoprene Case Pouch with Velcro Closure and Carabiner for Microsoft Lumia 950 XL - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories
    I use it to save the phone in my backpack while hiking it barely fits but it does.

    I hope I was able to help you.

    Now I hope that there will be enough people liking and upvoteing the UAG case so I can get one.

    Does anyone know if there's a way to get an original Microsoft OEM back cover for the Lumia 950XL? I dropped mine and the corner got munched a little

    You could try the marketplace. Maybe those who dislike the polycarbonate back are selling theirs after upgrading to the Mozo or other covers.

    I am getting my new White 950 XL on a few days. I am trying to find a case because I tend to drop my phones all of the time. My dilemma is that I want a protective case that will still allow me to use the wireless charging feature on the phone. Can someone please tell me the cases that will still allow me to wireless charge the 950 XL?

    Thanks.

    This is your first Lumia with wireless charging huh? Wireless charging works just fine with or without a case.

    The Mozo cases include wireless charging on them. The cases replace the back of the phone. I have a Mozo case but don't use wireless charging.

    Has anyone tried this
    Olixar CD Slot Mount Universal Case Compatible Car Holder :: MobileFun.com

    Or what are your thoughts??
    been using this for ages, bought it for my 920 but have used it with my 930, 1520, 640xl and now my 950xl, the bit that goes into the cd player is giving up the grip so will have to get a new one soon but it lasted 2 years plus

    oh i swapped bte actual holder for my qi charging one for one like this Qi Wireless Car Holder Charger Pad Transmitter for Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus | eBay

    Thanks Chums. Yes this is my first lumia with wireless charging. Previously, I had the 925 and 1520. So I can buy any case and still be able to wireless charge. Nice!

    Any news on an Otterbox case? It protected my HTC One M7 for 3+ years and I'd never consider another brand of case...but it looks like I have to.

    What's the closest option to an Otterbox since it looks like we'll never get one?

    I have settled with this case for now. Keeps thinness profile and feel there's some protection during falls.

    It looks like leather but is really more like silicon. It does look slick to me.

    The 950XL has been out a good while now and the case selection is, TBH, poor. Is it likely there'll be any more variety in future, or is that it for this model?
