If you buy the Lumia 950 or the Lumia 950 XL from the Microsoft Store, they'll also try to sell the Essentials Bundle. The kit includes a portable charger, tempered glass screen protector, and a phone case for $69. The offer is valid at Microsoft retail and online store in the US and Canada until the end of 2015. Watch our hands-on video for more details.
Microsoft DC-32 Portable Dual Charger
The DC-32 portable charger has a 5200 mAh capacity and can charge two devices at the same time through the USB ports. One micro-USB cable is included to refuel the charger, but it can also be used to charge a device with a micro-USB port. Keep in mind that the Lumia 950 and 950 XL require a USB-C cable, which is included in the phone's retail packaging. The charger output current is 2.1A total. There's an LED power indicator on top, so you can check the charging capacity at any time. The Microsoft Store retail price is $35, but it's discounted to $24.74 with the bundle.
Incipio PLEX Tempered Glass Screen Protector
This glass screen protector provides impact and scratch protection for your Lumia 950 and 950 XL screen. It also includes a snap-on installation bumper for accurate application. The Microsoft Store retail price is $35, but it's discounted to $22 with the bundle.
You get a choice of Incipio cases branded with Kate Spade or Jack Spade. We went with the Jack Spade Varick Gray version. Keep in mind that these are not replacement back covers like the Mozo covers. It's made of faux leather and protects your phone against wear and tear. The Microsoft Store retail price is $45, but it's discounted to $23.25 with the bundle.
The Lumia 950 and 950 XL Essentials Bundle isn't cheap, but you save up to $50 compared to buying the three items separately. Will you be getting it with your new phone? Let us know in the comments!
