We see way too many iPhone cases here at Apple World Today, so it takes a lot to get excited about a press announcement. Well, SnowLizard caught our attention with the new SLXtreme for iPhone 7 (US$149.99), which is the iPhone case to have protecting your precious smartphone when the zombie apocalypse happens.
All kidding aside, this thing is built like a tank. Here are the specs:
- Waterproof down to 6.6 feet and dirt resistant to protect your iOS device from outdoor elements
- Solar Powered Panel built-in for off the grid charging
- Poly-carbonate, rugged casing withstands drops, falls and spills from 6.6 ft.
- Li-Ion 4000mAh battery back-up to keep powered during hike, ski and camping
- Secures and protects the iPhone while leaving access to the phones camera, volume buttons, speakers and Multi-touch display
- The SLXtreme 7 is available in black, safety yellow, signal orange, and a special Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo
That battery gives you 185 percent more power than the built-in iPhone 7 battery, and the solar panel on the back trickle charges the phone to add 7 percent more power per hour of sun exposure.
The SLXtreme comes with a neck lanyard and a USB charging cable as well. Sure, $150 might be a little on the pricy side, but that's a lot less expensive than replacing your iPhone 7! SnowLizard also sells great hands-free accessories like a Chest Mount ($49.99), Bike Mount ($29.99), Rail Mount ($31.99) and a Clip & Adhesive Mount ($29.99).
It's summer, so don't be afraid to take your iPhone 7 on all of your adventures with you. Latch it into one of these SLXtreme cases and your phone will be fine.
