100% Waterproof: The Lifedge case features a unique silicon piston-seal system between the front and back of the case, ensuring a robust watertight seal no matter how many times it is opened and closed. It is rated waterproof to IP68, meaning it will be fully watertight at a water depth of up to 6'7" (2.0m) for at least 30 minutes. The case is also certified 100% dustproof.
Shockproof: Impact absorbing outer surface and internal shock absorbers make for safe drops onto concrete from 3'3" (1.0m). Camera lenses are ultra-sonically welded in place.
Functionality: The Lifedge case allows access to all functions, with the exception of the iPhone 5s fingerprint sensor, including:
- All Buttons
- iSight Front/Rear Cameras & True Tone flash
- Charge & Data Ports
- WiFi / 3G / 4G
- Headphone Socket
- Light, Proximity & Motion Sensors
Touch Screen Protection: The Lifedge screen protector sits against the touch screen so image quality is not compromised, even in direct sunlight, and inputs completely retain their response time and accuracy. The screen protector encorporates a hydrophobic surface to make water bead and run off quickly, while a nano-tech coating greatly resists abrasion.
Sound and Voice: Bespoke premium acoustic patches allow sound in and out of the case but block all moisture. A unique acoustic tunnel channels sound into a rear noise cancelling microphone for great call clarity in noisy places. Each case is supplied with a Waterproof Headphone Connector. Connect this adapter to your case and keep it 100% watertight while you make calls or listen to your music. The headphone socket cap is tethered so you'll never lose it.
Construction: All the materials selected to make this case had to be UV stabilized, resistant to bugs, mildew, salt water and certain chemicals. The two parts of the rear case are ultra-sonically welded to form a rigid box-section laminate. This also retains the main O-ring seal so it won't get dislodged when you open the case. All hinge pins are made from tough, anti-rust 316 stainless steel. Sea, river, rain, whatever water you are in, this case is built to last.
- Outer-edge - Protecting the outer edges of the case is a TPE overmould. It is durable and tough yet still has a comfortable feel. The material is soft to the touch and performs from -20°C to 45°C (-4°F to 113°:F).
- Inside the case - A material called Zennoy (an alloy of PC/PBT) which is incredibly stiff over even very thin sections. This means the case could be designed to be very compact yet maintain all the desired performance.
