  • Patent number: 10090578
    Abstract: An external case is configured to attach to a wireless device that has an antenna and a case separate from the external case. The external case has a first case portion and a second case portion. The second case portion is moveably attached to the first case portion and is moveable between a first position corresponding to the external case being closed and a second position corresponding to the external case being open. Additionally, the second case portion has an antenna system. The antenna system is parasitically coupled to the antenna of the wireless device. The antenna system receives from and sends to free space when the wireless device is operational, when the external case is attached to the wireless device, and when the second case portion is in the first position and in the second position.
