The title is already too long and it still fails to even remotely explain everything that the Snow Lizard SLXtreme Case has to offer. It is a protective case and emergency charger for iPhones 4, 4s, 5 and 5S with slight differences in spec and prices between the versions. Still, all options meet the meticulous MIL-STD-810 U.S. military standard that dictates the required features of products regarding various environmental conditions such as shock, extreme temperatures, sand and water exposure and even reduces the impact that gunfire and explosives have on your beloved smartphone.
Weighing 11 ounces (312 grams), the SLXtreme Case is made of sturdy polycarbonate with side grips made of rubber. The case is big and noticeable, but using it is a fairly simple task, touchscreen being easily accessible at any point and even the camera can be used underwater. However, you will not be able to use the phone’s 9mm headphone jack, due to the fact that it is covered with a double locking top latch that helps keep the case waterproof down to 6 feet (1.8 meters). But Bluetooth solves this problem easily.
Charging option is another valuable perk. The lithium ion battery with the capacity of 2000 mAh for 4 and 4S and 2550 mAh for 5 and 5S is charged using a solar panel at the back of the case. This kind of capacity increases the battery time by 150% and can even keep your phone on indefinitely provided that there is enough sunlight.
As with most other iPhone related products, personalization is very important, so the SLXtreme case comes in various different colors that change the appearance of your phone significantly.
