Snow Lizard Products recently revealed a new iPhone case that will make your Otter Box seem as wimpy as Super Mario in need of his mushroom fix. Dubbed the Aqua Tek S, they say its the first ever ruggedized, waterproof, solar powered, and battery-boosting iPhone 4/4S case. I have to admit, this thing does look pretty beefy.
“The iPhone is a great device but is too fragile to withstand the rigors of the outdoor enthusiast,” said Andreas Haase, who is part of the AQUA TEK S development team. “With AQUA TEK S take your iPhone to places where no iPhone has gone before, this is the perfect solution for rock climbers, river rafters and beach bums alike.”
The phone loads into the top of the case and the lid closes to fully protect the device while still providing access to all of the buttons and speakers. It's waterproof up to 20 feet and clearly designed to take a beating. There's also a built-in battery pack and a solar panel to help keep your iPhone juiced up while your out and about.
Right now Snow Lizard Products is trying to get funding for the project through Kickstarter. If they reach their $75,000 goal the Aqua Tek S is estimated to retail for around $130. Pledges of $100 will earn you a chance to receive one of the first Aqua Tek S cases. Other contribution rewards can be seen below...
