  • iEqualizer-case_iPhone_5 The iEqualizer case for iPhone 5: a kind of silly and pretty useless accessory

    Here on the Pure Mobile blog, we like to bring you news about the best gadgets, including the coolest iPhone accessories we can find. We've seen all kinds of iPhone cases and skins in our day, from typical protective gear to more out there designs. Many are good in their own right. But hey, they can't all be winners.


    Case in point: the iEqualizer case for iPhone 5 from Strapya World. To be honest, we aren't really sure why Mashable thought this silly and impractical case was worth writing up at all.


    In fact, we don't even know why we're talking about it right now, except maybe to prove the point that we've perhaps gone a little too far with our mobile accessories.


    The idea behind the iEqualizer iPhone 5 case is that it slaps a sound "equalizer" on the back that does a little light show in response to noise. Ok, sort of cool, I guess. But, as it turns out, the thing's not even a true equalizer.


    As Mashable points out, "each of the bars isn't reacting to specific frequencies. Nay, it's just the whole array of blinkenlights reacting to any sound nearby." So, like, whatever.


    That on its own isn't enough to really kill this case as a conceptual accessory. Yes, a light-up case could look pretty cool in a dark night club. But if it's just for show, we'd at least expect this iPhone case to look cool over all. But it doesn't.


    This total disaster of an accessory actually adds a ton of bulk to your phone, making its thickness almost double. And, to make matters worse, it's got an idiotic-looking plastic appendage at the top, which Mashable says works as on on/off switch.


    Seriously? They couldn't think of a way to integrate a button that performs the same function?


    Why anyone would dream this up when there are so many great and great-looking iPhone 5 accessories already on the market is beyond us. Except the obvious attempt at a cash-grab, we can't even explain why this piece of garbage exists.

  • Thuraya SatSleeve Satellite-Connected Case for iPhone Thuraya SatSleeve Satellite-Connected Case for iPhone

     


    Most of us aren't likely to ever find ourselves trekking through the Australian Outback, or on expedition through the forests of the Congo. But if you do happen to be a globetrotting rugged adventurer, yes, there is an iPhone accessory for that.


    An iPhone case like no other, Thuraya's SatSleeve Case connects with Thuraya's satellite network to ensure that you'll be able to make a call, even when in very remote locations. Their network covers 140 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, the middle East and Australia. That's a pretty handy survival tool should you find yourself stuck in a rough spot without reception.


    The SatSleeve is also an iPhone external battery case, which means it'll extend your iPhone's battery life so you'll have enough power to place a call if you need to.


    And even if your iPhone isn't working, the case itself is equipped with a microphone and speaker, as well as an emergency call button – you program an emergency phone number into it beforehand – so you're still not out of reach even in the stickiest situations.


    The case has obvious applications for military personnel, as well as corporate workers based in remote locations. But it's also probably one of the best iPhone accessories we've seen yet for adventurers and outdoorsy types. With the Sat Sleeve, Thuraya has provided rugged globetrotters with an iPhone case in keeping with their motto of "stay close." Just try not to think of the roaming charges...

    Even for Apple devotees who have nothing but praise for their iPhones, battery life is a common concern. But if the above image is something you never want to see on your iPhone again, there are ways to go about it. Plenty of iPhone accessories are designed specifically to help you extend battery life, so you can banich the red low battery symbol from your life forever.


    For everyday use, an iPhone external battery case is probably your best bet. With an extra battery built right in, accessories like Incipio's offGRID line of cases combine the protection of a carrying case with a life-saving back-up battery.

    With models for both iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, the OffGRID Battery Case will double your talk, text, viewing and game time, all in a sleek and compact package that adds surprisingly little extra bulk to your phone. The offGRID for iPhone 5 even features LED lights to let you keep track of battery life.

    But for longer jaunts, say, a week-long camping trip or a vacation abroad, you're probably going to need more than just double the usual battery life. And Dexim's BluePack S8 external battery will give you an additional 11 hours of talk, 21 hours of gaming or video viewing or 92 hours of music.


    Dexim BluePack S8 Enhanced Battery for All Devices Dexim BluePack S8 Enhanced Battery for All Devices

     


    Actually compatible with most other phones and devices too, Dexim's is one of the best iPhone battery extenders out there in that it can also be used to power up your iPad and iPod and features LED indicators to let you know how much juice you've got left. Oh, and it's also got a nifty little flashlight built in, so it really is a great iPhone accessory for travelers.


    So, between backup battery packs and external battery cases, there's no reason you should have to worry about that horrible red battery image ever again. Because, whether it's just a typical workday, or a long trip abroad, there's an iPhone accessory that's got your battery life covered.

  • Iron Man Mark VII Case for iPhone 5 from Brando Iron Man Mark VII Case for iPhone 5 from Brando

     


    Apple's design signature has long been about minimalism, elegance, subtlety, and bulging superhero six-packs – wait, what? Oh, we're sorry. We got distracted for a moment there by one of the craziest (silliest?) iPhone 5 accessories we've seen yet. Behold the Iron Man Mark VII iPhone 5 case from Brando.


    With an April release promised, this in-your-face accessory is modeled after the Marvel comics superhero Iron Man, A.K.A. Tony Stark. To be sure, this definitely won't impress iPhone aficionados who love their devices' sleek, understated design.


    Brando_marvel_Iron_Man_Mark_VII_iPhone_5_Case Brando's Iron Man Mark VII iPhone 5 Case: the antithesis of subtlety

     


    But it may just impress die-hard Iron Man fans. After all, its look is a pretty close imitation of  the character's red and gold body armor, and it even comes with a built-in battery-powered LED arc reactor. Now that's something you definitely won't get from average iPhone cases and skins.


    Though as far as iPhone cases go, it's on the low end when it comes to practicality. You've got to flip open a panel just to use the camera, and the overall design is pretty bulky and doesn't seem to have much in the way of grip.


    We won't go so far as calling this fairly ridiculous case "obscene," as did Gizmodo, but we will label it as gaudy. Bulky, over-engineered, impractical and lacking in all subtlety, it goes against pretty much everything Apple strives for in designs like the iPhone 5.


    However, it's more or less exactly what Tony Stark's all about. Flashy, loud and attention grabbing, it's the cell phone accessories equivalent of a spoiled, rich boy genius/self-made superhero.


    Again, the Iron Man Mark VII case will only be released next month, so we can't speak to how tough this iPhone 5 accessory really is. But clad in Iron Man's armored physique, you phone will at least look strong.

  • Otterbox armor series cases for iPhone galaxy S3


    OtterBox carrying cases are already widely credited as some of the world's best . Their protective Defender and Commuter cases are highly reviewed and extremely popular. But even so, the company's been promising something new since 2012 and with their latest OtterBox Armor case for iPhone 5, they've delivered.


    "The OtterBox iPhone 5 Armor Series case is a reinvention of an OtterBox classic that brings protection against water, drops, dust and crushing force," says the company.


    But we feel that's a mild understatement. This super-tough case can actually survive a plunge of up to 6 metres, thanks to metal latches, an o-ring seal, port covers and mesh coverings.

    Since it was only unveiled a little over a month ago at CES, the iPhone 5 Armor case, which is also available for iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S III, is basically the newest thing on the market.


    But already, it's been surrounded by great reviews calling it one of the best. PC Mag listed the Armor case for iPhone 5 in its roundup of the 20 coolest cases at CES.

    And for its part, OtterBox is calling it the toughest case ever built, adding, "This case was made with confidence. We encourage you to use it with some."


    Otterbox has long been a leader in iPhone accessories, and with this latest offering, it looks as though the company intends to keep its crown. As for us, we're thrilled to have the Armor case for iPhone 5 available so early in its release, and we're pretty sure you will be too.

  • Griffin survivor cases iPhone 5


    It's not often that you get a great deal on one of the most popular and highest rated accessories for one of the best and newest phones. But this week, the Survivor series, Griffin's leading carrying case for iPhone 5, is on super sale at Pure Mobile.


    With an iPhone 5 accessory as high-rated and well-loved as this, it almost seems like an exercise in redundancy to go through a description. But for those who aren't already well acquainted with Griffin's star iPhone case, here goes:


    Griffin proudly claims that the Survivor case is the most protective case they've ever built, which, for this company, is saying something. Unapologetically over-engineered, the Survivor for iPhone 5 is built to military specifications, "designed and tested to meet or exceed US Department of Defense Standard 810F."

    With a multi-layer construction that combines shatter-proof polycarbonate with shock-absorbing silicone, the Survivor case has been tested to withstand rain, vibrations, blown sand and dust, and even a 6-foot drop onto concrete.


    But this carrying case serves just as well for everyday life as it does in military-grade tests, and handy features, like a multi-position clip make it a practical and functional civilian favorite.

    And with a wide variety of colors to choose from (our sale includes models in basic black or grey, as well as color combos with red, blue, green and more), there's a stylish option for almost every taste.


    And right now, we've got the Griffin Survivor for iPhone 5 priced around the $20 mark, which is probably just about the best deal you can get on an iPhone 5 accessory with this level of design and quality.

  • Griffin Cinema Seat iPad case


    There's at least one upside to being the passenger in someone else's car – you don't have to keep your eyes on the road. But if watching video with your iPad in you lap already sounds like a sweet deal, just how much better it could be with Griffin's Cinema Seat case for iPad mini.


    As its name suggests, this iPad case is specifically designed for a more cinematic viewing experience. With a wide adjustable strap that can be routed around a car seat headrest, the Cinema Seat in car mount lets you perfectly position your iPad mini for the best backseat viewing.


    Griffin GB36142 Cinema Seat Case iPad mini Black Griffin Cinema Seat Case for iPad Mini in Black

    And if your chauffeur doesn't appreciate the film score or your video game sound effects, that's alright. Because, even when it's mounted, this smartly designed iPad accessory still allows full access to the headphone jack, as well as to other ports and controls.


    Of course, it's the perfect iPad accessory for long car rides, but the rear strap is great for hand-held video watching too, whether you're commuting by public transportation, or just lying around the house.


    But aside from being a great gadget for video junkies, the Cinema Seat is of course a Griffin product. And that means you can bet it'll be up to the standards of some of their other, top-rated carrying cases, like the Survivor and Protector.


    There are lots of Apple car accessories out there, but none quite so suited to cinematic tastes as the Cinema Seat headrest mount. And any iPad mini user who who loves watching video on their tablet would gladly trade shotgun for one of these any day.

  • LINKASE-iPhone_5_case_absolutetech_red Absolute Tech's Linkase uses EMW to boost your Wi-Fi signal

     


    It seems every accessories maker out there is working on accessories for iPhone 5 that boost something. There are iPhone cases with external battery to extend your battery life. And now, a new iPhone 5 carrying case from Absolute Tech may just boost your Wi-Fi.


    Gizmodo reported this week on Absolute Tech's latest gadget, the Linkase, an iPhone 5 case that's supposed to help you get better Wi-Fi reception on your phone using electro magnetic waveguide (EMW) technology. For users with limited data plans, an iPhone accessory that helps lower overage costs probably sounds like a godsend.


    LINKASE-iPhone_5_Wifi_case_blue-absolutetech Absolute Tech's Linkase iPhone 5 case in Blue

     


    But Gizmodo isn't totally convinced and here's why. Though Absolute Tech's website runs through an explanation of how this EMW technology works, Gizmodo notes that this is still "a bit of a gray area that seems to border on snake oil."


    However, EMW isn't the only reason Absolute Tech says the Linkase works. Rather the accessory also seems to prevent users from covering the iPhone antenna, and even includes and antenna extension. Both of these things should actually help you catch a better signal.


    Though whether this iPhone carrying case can boost your Wi-Fi by 50 percent as promised is still up for debate. And at $50 a pop, taking a chance and testing out this  iPhone accessory isn't exactly cheap.



    As for the other aspects of the Linkase, it does seem to be a thoughtfully designed and well constructed case. WIth a multilayered design, it combines a polycarbonate backing with a raised rubber bevel and non-slip leather coating on the exterior.


    With a slim design, and available in some bright colors, it's also pretty attractive (aside from the whole raised antenna thing.)


    So would we recommend the Linkase? If it came from a trusted name like Griffin or Incase, we would in a heartbeat. But we're going to have to go with Gizmodo on this, and say that this is one iPhone 5 accessory that needs to be put to the test to see if it really delivers on everything it promises.

  • LifeProof Waterproof case iPhone 5 Black Mud Puddle


    So, at the risk of a pun, LifeProof has made quite a splash in the past year or so, thanks to its highly effective waterproof Apple accessories. Not too long ago, we reviewed their waterproof carrying cases for iPad and iPhone 4/4S. But today's mobile accessory of the week is LifeProof's long-awaited accessory for iPhone 5.


    The leading maker of waterproof carrying cases has finally put out its iPhone 5 model, and it's just arrived at Pure Mobile. As with LifeProof's versions for older Apple devices, the LifeProof Case for iPhone 5 is not only waterproof, but dirt-, snow-, and shock-proof too.


    LifeProof 130101 Waterproof case iPhone 5 Black LifeProof Waterproof Case for iPhone 5 in Black

     


    If you have any doubts in this area, they may be put to rest by the fact that the LifeProof waterproof case either meets or exceeds tests from both the U.S. and U.K. armies, so it's fully military-grade.


    For such a rugged and resilient case, you might expect something much heavier and bulkier. But the LifeProof case for iPhone 5 is actually quite slim and light, totally in keeping with the design of the device it's intended to protect.


    LifeProof 130102 Waterproof case iPhone 5 White LifeProof Waterproof Case for iPhone 5 in White

     


    Another thing worth noting about aesthetics is that, for an iPhone 5 accessory that could have prospered based on its functionality and practicality alone, some extra effort has been put into looks here.


    Though it's hardly a rainbow of color, it's nice to know that there's at least two color options (black and white) and that the overall look has been kept as simple and streamlined as possible, considering all that this accessory can do.


    We will say this: in the realm of iPhone accessories, the LifeProof carrying case for iPhone 5 isn't cheap. But If you're looking for fully-protective waterproof, shock-proof and drop-proof functionality, it's among the best.
