FORENSIC CRACK CABINET

8 Charging Compartments to Keep Devices Live while Cracking Passcodes or Waiting for Analysis

SKU: MDFCC-8

Mission Darkness™ Forensic Crack Cabinet includes 8 Charging Compartments to Keep Devices Live while Cracking Passcodes or Waiting for Analysis

The Mission Darkness™ Forensic Crack Cabinet system solves multiple problems for forensics investigators and labs. To effectively access and recover data from cell phones and tablets, the latest forensic tools require devices to stay live up to the point of password/passcode unlocking and data extraction. It often takes months for passcodes to be "cracked" or for device analysis to occur. This cabinet keeps devices charged, physically organized, and securely locked throughout this pre-analysis waiting stage and thereafter. The charging feature is designed to prevent lockout mode, reduce the amount of time needed to break a passcode, and keep the device charged while high-powered processing occurs, enabling the maximum amount of data extraction and unlocking with tools like GrayKey, Cellebrite, Magnet, XRY, BlackBag, Oxygen, etc.

The cabinet is constructed with a durable frame and transparent acrylic walls and shelves, which allow the user to clearly view contents inside and device screens. It includes eight fully equipped compartments with all necessary charging components. The compartments are spacious enough to store one or two devices, plus unused cable tips and associated paperwork/case files. Each compartment includes a USB A/M to A/M extension cable plus a variety of popular cable tips: lightning, micro USB, and USB-C. Easily change cable tips inside the compartment to connect to the compatible device. An extension pack can be purchased to increase charging capabilities from eight to sixteen devices. A Noctua fan cooling system consists of four NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM fans lining the side wall plus a NA-FC1 controller to stabilize device temperature and heat generated from high-power processor speeds by expelling it through air holes.

The complete system ensures that device organization, visibility, and power are never compromised, providing a seamless process for forensic investigators.

If RF Shielding Capabilities are Required

If the device requires RF shielding while it is being charged inside the cabinet, you can utilize Charge & Shield Faraday Bags (available in phone and tablet sizes). The dual-sided USB filter in the bag enables you to connect the device to a power source while it remains isolated from RF signals. The transparent window on the front side of the bag allows you to see device state and when the passcode is cracked.

When using with the Forensic Crack Cabinet, simply place a device inside the Charge & Shield Faraday Bag, connect the device to the inner side of the USB filter, close the bag, then connect the outer side of the USB filter to the power cable inside the cabinet compartment. When data extraction or device analysis is to occur, disconnect the power cable connected to the outer side of the USB filter, remove the Charge & Shield Faraday Bag from the cabinet, and transfer it into a forensic faraday box, like the Mission Darkness BlockBox Lab. The bag can be easily opened inside the box (the magnetic NeoLok closure reduces faraday glove abrasion) while the device is passed into the shielded enclosure. Additional Charge & Shield Bag uses and benefits can be viewed on the product page.

Increase Capacity with Extension Pack

Purchase an additional charging kit extension pack to increase charging capacity from eight to sixteen devices (see details below). Product variation options are listed in the drop-down menu.

Compatible with Charge & Shield Faraday Bags

If you want the device to stay charged and shielded inside the cabinet, purchase Charge & Shield Faraday Bags. The dual-sided USB filter in the bag enables you to charge the device while it remains isolated from RF signals. A transparent window allows you to view the device screen so you can see device state and when the passcode is cracked.


  • Clean cable management with a master switch for activating all device screens
  • Four Noctua NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM fans plus a NA-FC1 controller
  • Exterior cabinet door locks and includes two keys
  • Unique serial number for asset tracking


If Using with Passcode Unlocking and Data Extraction Tools

Like GrayKey, Cellebrite, Magnet, XRY, BlackBag, Oxygen, etc.

Forensic investigators are often working with a vast collection of devices at various stages of passcode unlocking, making it tedious and time consuming to tap phone screens one by one to determine the device state and if the passcode has been cracked. The ability to flip a single switch in order to instantly illuminate all phone screens saves time and helps with overall lab management. The simple steps below explain how to use the Forensic Crack Cabinet in accordance with passcode unlocking tools.

  1. Once a device is disconnected from a passcode unlocking tool and the program is running, place device (and any relevant paperwork/case files) on an empty cabinet shelf.
  2. Connect the device to power using the compatible cable tip stored in the compartment (lightning, micro USB, and USB-C cable tips are included for each compartment).
  3. Toggle the master power switch as needed to cycle power to illuminate device screens. This instantly shows if a passcode has been cracked.


Increase Cabinet Capacity by Purchasing Extension Pack

Extension Pack SKU: MDFCC-8EXT (Options Shown in Drop-Down Menu)

Variety of Cables Included in Each Compartment

Each compartment comes equipped with the following cables:

  • USB A/M to A/M extension cable
  • Lightning cable tip
  • Micro USB cable tip
  • USB-C cable tip

*Select the cable tip that correlates with the device being charged, and insert it on the end of the USB extension cable.

Extension Pack Includes 8 Additional Sets of Cables — Increasing Capacity from 8 to 16 Devices

Purchase an extension pack to increase capacity from eight devices to sixteen. The extension pack includes eight of each cable mentioned above. Simple installation consists of plugging the additional USB extension cables into the cabinet's exterior USB power hub, and directing cable ends through each compartment's rubber grommet cable hole. The shelves are large enough to comfortably display two devices and accompanying accessories like spare cable tips and files.

The USB power hub can accommodate a maximum of sixteen cable connections. Purchase multiple Forensic Crack Cabinets if your lab has an abundance of devices requiring indefinite power.
