Keep it real with barely there, military-graded protective phone cases
Mobile phone users can keep it real with unobtrusive, barely there protective cases from Speck, brought to South Africa by Gammatek one of the largest distributors of branded phone and device accessories.
Speck’s new CandyShell Clear range of cases are designed for impact, offering military grade protection for iPhone and Samsung phones without disguising their true identity. The CandyShell Clear case is a glossy hard shell with a rubbery lining made from co-molded polycarbonate and custom engineered soft acrylic. The outer polycarbonate layer disperses impact while the interior layer absorbs shock. The raised bezel – 1.5mm compared to the 0.68 mm of a leading competitor – protects the screen from impact and the scratch and fade resistant surface repels abrasions. The cases are lab tested to endure everyday accidents.
CandyShell Clear cases are available for iPhone 6/6S; iPhone 5/5S/ SE; Samsung Galaxy 7 and Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge. The cases come in clear or onyx, except for the iPhone 6/6S which has additional colour options such as Beaming Orchid Purple and Rainstorm Blue.
For those who love a little “bling”, there is the CandyShell Clear with Glitter range. These cases boast the same robust protection and innovative materials as the other clear cases but with some glitz. Shimmering gold glitter is embedded in the outer shell for lasting shimmer. CandyShell Clear Glitter cases will not fade from UV exposure and the glitter will not impact on battery life or interfere with signal strength. CandyShell Clear Glitter is available in clear, onyx and Beaming Orchid for iPhone 6 / 6S, iPhone SE and Samsung Galaxy 7Edge.
According to Gammatek’s Zev Cherniak the Speck CandyShell Clear Case has been tested by the US Military and has shown to exceed military MIL-STD-810G drop test standards.
“The Speck CandyShell Clear is the only fully clear case in the industry that has achieved military-grade drop tested certification This feat was achieved with Speck’s patented dual-layer design. Although the case has two layers, it is surprisingly slim and unobtrusive.These cases also keep their crystal clear appearance over time,” he says.
