  • Griffin Survivor Waterproof new iPhone 5 accessories


    At Pure Mobile, we sure do love new iPhone 5 accessories, especially when they give us something we haven't seen before. So it's only natural that we put the spotlight today on the new arrival at our shop of Griffin's latest, the Survivor Waterproof iPhone 5 Case.


    Not too long ago, a waterproof iPhone 5 case seemed like a novel concept with only one or two big names working on such a design. of course, there's LifeProof, as well as OtterBox's recently released Armor series. But that led us to wonder why Griffin was so long absent from this new accessory category.


    So well known for heavy-duty iPhone 5 accessories made for extreme conditions, Griffin ought to have a waterproof iPhone case of its own. And now, with the Survivor waterproof, a collaboration with accessories maker Catalyst, we've finally got it.

    The Survivor + Catalyst iPhone 5 case is designed and tested to be completely waterproof up to 3 metres (or 9.8 feet). So, water won't get in the way of taking pictures or video, or anything else you use your phone for.


    Meanwhile, the same rugged protection you get from Griffin's standard Survivor model is right there in this waterproof case as well. Having consulted the U.S. Department of Defense's Mil-Std 810-G to design their testing protocols, this waterproof case also keeps your phone protected from drops, shocks and vibrations.


    But as a latecomer to the waterproof iPhone case market, it's a good thing that Griffin has yet another card up its sleeve.


    Unlike LifeProof's Fre case (which, by the way, is actually pretty awesome) the Survivor + Catalyst case doesn't actually need to be screwed or unscrewed to be attached or removed. Instead, it uses compression latches to secure the case, making waterproofing your phone as easy as changing into a swimsuit. In fact, Griffin even claims that it's the most easy-fitting waterproof iPhone 5 case availalble.


    As we said, we love casting the spotlight on new iPhone 5 accessories at Pure Mobile. And with a carrying case as functional, protective and cleverly designed as Griffin's Survivor waterproof iPhone 5 case, the task is even more fun.

    Ah, summer! It's right around the corner and for us at Pure Mobile, that means it's time to start rounding up some of the best cell phone accessories for the warmer months. Whether it means a waterproof carrying case, or somewhere to stash your cash and cards for a day at the beach, we're bringing you our top picks with this list of the 5 best iPhone 5 cases for summer 2013.


    Read on for our favorite accessories to keep your phone dry and looking hot, from leading brands like OtterBox, Incipio, LifeProof and Griffin.


    5: Incipio Stashback iPhone 5 Case

    Warm summer weather probably means you've got a lot less pockets to stash your phone, cash and credit cards. But with Incipio's Stashback iPhone 5 case, you can keep everything together in one place.


    This iPhone 5 carrying case doubles as a wallet, with an exterior compartment for cash and cards, so you won't miss your winter jacket's pocket space. We especially like it in hot pink for the summer months.


     


    2: Griffin Reveal iPhone 5 Case

    Again, since summer means fewer pockets, you probably want to go with a slim and compact phone case this season. And Griffin's Reveal iPhone 5 case offers a compact "barely there" option that's super portable but also quite protective.


    WIth a clear back and bright color options "Pool Blue" it simply screams summer.

    Now, onto the waterproof accessories.


    If you're planning on doing any water sports or outdoor activities like hiking or camping this summer, an accessory that keeps your phone and valuables dry and safe is a must. More than just an iPhone 5 case, OtterBox's Pursuits 40 dry box actually fits a bunch of other essentials as well, keeping all the important stuff safe in one place.


    But it does feature a rubber mesh compartment specifically designed to keep your iPhone 5 (or any other device) securely in place. And it'll protect your phone from all manner of mishaps, like drops, shocks, bumps and, of course, water.


     


    4. LifeProof Fre iPhone 5 waterproof case

    If you'd rather just keep your phone dry, and don't need a whole dry box, accessories maker LifeProof has built a name for itself with its signature waterproof accessories. And their Fre iPhone 5 case is among the most reliable in this department.


    It doesn't just protect your phone from spills and rain, it actually allows you to totally submerge your phone, which means you can easily take pictures and video underwater. We couldn't think of an accessory that's more suited to poolside summer days.


    5. OtterBox Armor iPhone 5 Case

    Another waterproof OtterBox iPhone 5 case, the Armor goes beyond protection from water to offer protection from drops, bumps, scratches, shocks and even crushing force.


    It's the all-around package, and therefore a great accessory for anyone planning an active summer. We also like the hot shades it comes in, from bright green or blue, to vibrant orange.


    Summer's a great time to get out, and you want to make sure you've got an accessory that lets your phone go everywhere with you. And with any one of our top 5 iPhone 5 cases for hot summer days, that should be no problem.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    Move over Liferpoof, there's a new waterproof iPhone 5 case in town. 9to5Mac reported on a new, seriously rugged case from Incipio, unveiled yesterday at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.


    The award-winning cell phone accessories maker's latest is the xGO, a rough-and-tumble iPhone 5 case that's waterproof up to 25 feet, and which the company has branded as an "action sports equipped case solution," ideal for the adventurous type.


    The xGO blends a plextonium frame with a silicone core and sports a tempered glass screen, so that your iPhone isn't just protected underwater, but maintains full functionality as well.


    Meanwhile, the case's mounting system allows you to "effortlessly mount the case to backpacks, bicycles, surfboards," and comes with a bunch of cool screw-in lenses for your phone's camera, like wide angle, fish eye, macro and zoom.


    This latest Incipio iPhone case "provides our active enthusiast with the ability to protect their mobile device and take it with them on all their adventures,” said Incipio Chief Executive Andy Fathollahi in a statement. It's a solution that "changes the way you use your iPhone 5," the company says.


    If you're a rugged, sporty or outdoorsy type and can't wait to get your hands on one, the xGO will start rolling out next month in a number of colors, and will be available along with add-ons like attachments, hardware, nylon hand straps and more.

  • LifeProof's new Nüüd iPad case promises "barely there" waterproof protection

     


    Humankind's fascination with gadgets can only be rivalled by our longstanding fascination with water.


    So, even though we quake with fear at the thought of submerging our iPads, iPhones and other devices, it shouldn't really surprise us that, when people go swimming or surfing, they want to take their tablet or smartphone along.


    We've already seen something of the waterproofing trend from LifeProof – the San Diego-based company boasts what's been called the slimmest waterproof case for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.


     


    But now, the New York Times' Gadgetwise blog is reporting on the company's latest in elemental shielding for Apple devices.


    This time, LifeProof has taken its efforts to tablets, with the waterproof Nüüd iPad case. The product gets its name from the fact that there's actually no screen covering – your iPad's naked glass screen is already waterproof, and adding an extra film on top only reduces clarity.


    Instead, the Nüüd case seals around the glass and provides a waterproof backing for the rest of the iPad. There's also access at the bottom for charging and syncing, so you don't have to constantly take the case off and put it back on again.


    As Gadgetwise points out, you still may not want to do any serious snorkeling with your iPad, since it wasn't really designed for that. But the new iPad case is great for poolside, a day at the beach, or any other routine encounter with water.


    You may swear to have never texted on the toilet, but show me the techie who says they've never brought their phone or tablet into the bathroom, and I'll show you a liar. In any case, waterproofing just makes solid sense.


    Any survival expert will tell you that where there's life, there's water. But as we at Pure Mobile know, where there's life, there's also tech.
