PLEASE NOTE: Current lead time is 4-6 weeks. This item is shipped on a pallet; additional freight charges will apply. We will contact you with a freight estimate charge based on your location. 

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, cooled, 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 fully equipped compartments with all necessary charging components to charge up to 16 or 32 devices at the same time (charging capacity depends on the product variation selected). The compartments are spacious enough to store multiple devices, plus associated paperwork/case files. Each cable set includes USB A/M to A/M extension cables 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. Each shelf compartment can accommodate multiple devices and cable sets; the user can rearrange cables however necessary to fit various-sized devices. Unused cables can be stored in the bottom accessory compartment. A Noctua fan cooling system consists of eight NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM fans lining both side walls plus an NA-FC1 controller to equalize airflow and device temperature (to prevent overheating from high-power processor speeds).

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 the device state and when the passcode is cracked.

When using 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, and then connect the exterior 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 XL. 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.

Charging Capacity

The product is offered in two variations; the only difference being the charging capacity and quantity of charging cables included. Purchase multiple Forensic Crack Cabinets if your lab has an abundance of devices requiring indefinite power (more than 32). Product variation options are listed in the drop-down menu.

  • 18 device capacity / SKU: MDFCC-18
  • 30 device capacity / SKU: MDFCC-30

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 the device state and when the passcode is cracked.


  • Clean cable management with a master switch for activating all device screens

Use 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 the device (and any relevant paperwork/case files) on an empty cabinet shelf.
  2. Connect the device to power using the USB A/M to A/M extension cable fed through the cable hole, plus the compatible cable tip (lightning, micro USB, and USB-C cable tips are included for each cable set).
  3. Toggle the master power switch as needed to cycle power to illuminate device screens. This instantly shows if a passcode has been cracked.
