Snow
Lizard Expands Collection of Rugged, Waterproof and Battery-Boosting
Mobile Accessories with the SLXtreme for iPhone 5 and iPad 

Park City, Utah – July 16, 2013 – Splash into summer with Snow Lizard Products
new accessories for iPhone 5 and iPad. The SLXtreme line offers
ultra-rugged, waterproof protection and battery-boosting technology that
make the SLXtreme cases the perfect companion to the outdoors.
“iOS
devices are fantastic but too delicate to withstand outdoor
environments,” says Steve Calle, CEO and Co-founder of Snow Lizard
Products. “With SLXtreme products, people can now hike, ski, camp,
lounge and play longer with power and protection that outlives their
adventures.”

Whether you’re white water rafting a class IV rapid,
fly fishing at your favorite watering hole, snorkeling a stellar reef or
kicking it poolside, the SLXtreme lineup provides ultra-protection in
any extreme environment. The SLXtreme 5
features a solar power panel that charges an integrated 2550 MaH
battery, more than doubling the life of an iPhone. The case is designed
to be waterproof down to 6 feet (2 meters) while maintaining full
functionality of the iPhone’s features. The waterproof case protects the
iPhone 5 without losing the ability to take calls, shoot video and
photographs, listen to music and connect to the charger.

Thoughts =>
This is a simple case to use, just pop the phone in, snap it shut and
your good to go, and you’ll get excellent protection from the elements. The added
benefit of a battery and solar trickle panel to recharge your phone in
the field is great for the power hungry iPhone and GPS apps. I am glad
to see they have added a way to use headphone jack, and I’ll be
interested to see if the buttons are easier to use than their
predecessors.



Easy
to use and install, simply slide your iPhone into the SLXtreme case
with the top loading lid that fully protects the device. With updated
features to the SLXtreme 5, users can now connect a 3.5mm audio jack for
their listening needs and a quarter turn thumb-screw makes it quick and
easy to charge. Made to withstand drops, falls and accidental spills,
the case is designed to military specifications rated 810G and IP-68.
The SLXtreme 5 will be available in Night Black, Signal Orange, Safety
Yellow, and Coyote Tan starting Fall 2013 for $129.99.

The SLXtreme for iPad offers the ultimate protection for your
iPad (Gen 2+). Made from a hard polycarbonate-ABS shell, with inner
shock absorbing panels, the SLXtreme for iPad is waterproof for your
underwater or splash-prone environments, and is IP-68 certified for
depths up to 2m/6 ft and Mil spec 810G to withstand drops from 2m/6 ft.
 An integrated10200 mAh battery keeps your iPad powered, and USB out
enables users to charge other mobile devices while on the go. A standard
VESA mounting system secures your iPad just where you need it, always
powered and always protected. The SLXtreme iPad will be available in
Fall 2013 for $179.99 (with battery) and $99.99 (without battery).
