Extreme outdoors travelers will find the Snow Lizard SLXtreme iPhone case to be a necessity, but as a business traveler, I admit, I did not realize why this would be such a useful device to me. To begin with, it has its own integrated battery that could double the life of your iPhone at the same time as remaining watertight. While I am not hiking up waterfalls daily, the extra battery life immediately caught my attention.
If I did accidentally drop my phone six feet into a pool, I would be safe too! That’s a deal that I could get into, extra battery life and waterproof capability?
And while my business travel may not send me hiking, it does send me to leisure destinations. As a travel writer, I can see myself taking photos underwater for an island destination adding to the benefit of this iPhone case and charger.
Holding onto my phone, in any situation whether wet or dry, is easier thanks to the rubberized side grips of this case. It even features a solar charger that keeps it going (for those using it outdoors).
If using it for just watching a program, the battery allows for 46 hours of playback or 380 hours of simply standby mode, which is incredibly generous when it comes to battery life.
With a variety of colors, it fits all kinds of situations from backpacking or camping to business travel in tropical climates. Another feature that I appreciated was that it was quick to slide the case on and off. Occasionally, iPhone cases are so snug that it takes brute force to snap it around your phone. If I had to find one thing that I disliked about this case is that it appears more recreational than professional, but again, its target customer is the adventurer. And, I found it to have a great double life for the road warrior.
The SLXtreme iPhone case is available for $129.99 at Snow Lizard’s website or on Amazon. When searching for a case that surcharges both your batter and phone protection, this model is certainly worth considering.
