Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/12/2015 -- SLXtreme provides an all-inclusive mobile solution to keep iPhones, GalaxyS5 & iPad® Air powered, protected and immersed in adventure.
As many consumers unwrapped new gadgets this holiday season, tech gear and accessories are in high demand now to protect them from the inevitable drops, dirt, sand, water damage and battery drain. There are many options for safeguarding against water damage and cracked screens, and other options to extend battery-life for smart devices, but nothing like the combined protection and in-case charging and solar power offered by Snow Lizard's SLXtreme line, expanding to include models for Samsung Galaxy S5, iPhone® 6, 6 Plus and coming soon for iPad® Air 2.
"Our SLXtreme cases appeal to many outdoor enthusiasts, hard-core adventurers, military and tactical personnel, as well as environmental and commercial professionals" says Steve Calle, CEO and Co-founder of Snow Lizard Products. "The unique combination of in-case battery charging, water submersion and drop proof protection make our case an essential ingredient in the total solution for outdoor-based mobile applications."
The new SLXtreme cases for GS5 and iPhone 6 feature tough polycarbonate exterior with TPU overlay that meets MIL STD 810G for drops to 2m/6.6ft and resistance to scratches and abrasion. An IP-68 rating also makes these newly designed SLXtreme cases completely waterproof down to 2M/6.6ft, as well as dust, dirt and sand-proof. Beyond protection, the SLXtreme cases house rechargeable lithium ion batteries, capable of fully recharging each respective model more than 150%. Rear panel solar panel enables recharging anywhere, even away from a power source.
Easy bottom entry with dual side latch hinges makes it easy to insert or remove a phone from the SLXtreme case. No need to twist, bend or fumble with multiple parts to shield from extreme weather conditions for recreational or professional use outdoors. When extended adventures deplete the phone's battery, simply activate in-case charging with the press of a button. LED lights indicate remaining battery capacity in the case. Replenish the case battery through the integrated solar panel trickle charge, enough juice for an emergency phone call or text.
SLXtreme phone case models are available now for iPhone 5/5s at SnowLizardProducts.com and available for Pre-Order for Samsung Galaxy S5, iPhone 6, SRP $149.99, and coming soon for iPhone 6 Plus.
The SLXtreme cases for iPad are also IP-68 and MIL-STD 810G rated for waterproof and drop-proof protection, and a pre-drilled mounting template replaces rear solar panel, making the case compatible with standard VESA mounts for boats, recreational vehicles and merchant stands. Integrated case battery capacity of more than 10,000 mAh ensures iPad stays powered, nearly doubling the battery life of the tablet. SLXtreme iPad cases are available for iPad 4th Generation with Lightning Connector and are in development for iPad Air 2.
Snow Lizard is also introducing an SLXtreme Navigation Series featuring an integrated GPS/GLONASS receiver powered by Bad Elf® Location Technology embedded right into an SLXtreme case. The Bad Elf GPS navigation module instantly adds worldwide location support to WiFi-only iPad models without cell tower connection or monthly subscription. Paired with leading location service Apps such as Navionics, Snow Lizard provides an all-inclusive mobile product that exceeds the functionality of expensive navigation equipment with extended power and protection from the SLXtreme case, plus portability and a wider range of features from an iPad. Ideal for boaters, aviators, and off-the-grid trekker, the possibilities for customized recreational, commercial and professional solutions are endless.
"Imagine how boat owners with small craft can use the iPad they already own instead of, or in addition to expensive marine GPS equipment or fish-finding devices at less than half the cost of most models," stated Calle, "Recreational and commercial boaters would have the ability to remove the iPad instead of having something permanently installed, plus use the iPad for music and video playback, take photos and video, and stay in touch with friends and family through social sites and uploads. In addition to a marine environment, the SLXtreme Navigator Series case complements field applications in agriculture, survey, oil & gas and many more industry-specific uses."
