There is provided a case (10) for an aerosol-generating device (100), the case (10) comprising a case housing (12), a case power supply (22), and a holder (14) for receiving an aerosol-generating device (100). The holder (14) is movably coupled to the case housing (12) for both rotational and translational movement relative to the case housing and movable relative to the case housing (12) between an open position for receiving an aerosol-generating device (100) and a closed position for storing an aerosol-generating device (100). The case (10) also comprises a case electrical connector (26) arranged to supply power from the case power supply (22) to an aerosol- generating device (100) when the aerosol-generating device (100) is received within the holder (14) and when the holder (14) is in each of the open position and the closed position. The case (10) also comprises an input means and case control circuitry (24) configured receive data from the input means. The case control circuitry (24) is configured to transmit a signal to an aerosol-generating device (100) by the case electrical connector (26), wherein the signal is indicative of the state of the input means.
