📱 About Us

We are Mous. (Pronounced mouse, not moose.) Our vision is for everyone to live better with technology. With an in-house team of expert product engineers and designers, we’re constantly evolving in a rapidly changing market. We make high-performance tech accessories and innovative product ecosystems, crafted with purpose, and demonstrate their value through impactful content. We believe in show, not tell, so we produce extreme content to prove what our products can do, including throwing phones from helicopters, cranes and even the roof at Google HQ in California.

We started by designing a phone case that focused on high performance, optimal functionality and considered style. We have since expanded our product range to include ecosystems of MagSafe® compatible magnetic accessories, mechanical mounts for content creation and bikes, ultra-fast wireless chargers and backpacks that all adhere to these principles.

Our products are for risk-takers and thrill-seekers as well as tech-lovers and city dwellers. We create solutions to the problems that come from busy lives and outlandish adventures. No matter what your everyday life looks like you can trust our products to expand the experiences you have with the tech you use the most.
