Back in July of 2012, we gave away an iPhone 4/iPhone 4S Cellhelmet case. The Cellhelmet case offers an unbeatable guarantee that if your iPhone is damaged while inside of the case, the company will replace the broken part, or if necessary, replace the iPhone for a charge of $50 whether your AppleCare warranty is up or not.
In November of last year, the Cellhelmet case for the iPhone 5 became available for pre-order, just two months after the iPhone 5 release. The first batch of Cellhelmet cases for iPhone 5 are now shipping, and weíre teaming up with Cellhelmet to hook up one lucky ModMyi reader with a free Cellhelmet case to keep their iPhone 5 protected; a $49.99 value.
Important to note right off the bat, the iPhone 5 version of the Cellhelmet case is much more simplistic than the iPhone 4/iPhone 4S version that we showed you last year. Itís very minimalistic, thin, and fits in your pocket even better. The case itself is still made out of TPU, and is manufactured in the United States.
The Cellhelmet logo is etched into the back of the case, and unlike the iPhone 4/iPhone 4S Cellhelmet case we showed you last year, there is no plastic slip to wedge between the back of the iPhone and the case, so you will see the brilliant design of the iPhone 5 right through the back of the case.
The ports, volume buttons, ringer/silent switch, microphones, speakers, rear/front-facing cameras, LED flash, and touch screen are all easily accessible from the case, as itís not obtrusive at all.
The case holds a tight grip on the iPhone 5, so it won't be sliding around in the case and causing potential scuffs to the iPhone 5's aluminum casing. The edges of the case also hug the iPhone's structure nice and tight, as not to be loose and unappealing.
The Cellhelmet case for iPhone 5 comes in the following colors via Cellhelmet's Web site:
In the box, not only will you find the case, but you'll also find your guarantee slip, shown below:
The slip comes with a registration code that youíll need to register with Cellhelmet within 30 days of your purchase in order to claim your one-year guarantee from Cellhelmet. Their guarantee covers all kinds of accidental damage, including port damage, glass damage, frame damage, button damage, motherboard damage, and more. The coverage doesn't cover water damage, scuffs on the aluminum casing, or software problems. Also, the company promises unlimited repairs, but a limit of one replacement per case purchase.
It's important to mention that the guarantee exists for all iPhones Ė new, used, jailbroken, unjailbroken, unlocked, or locked; no matter what. If your Cellhelmet one-year guarantee ends, you can purchase another Cellhelmet case to extend your coverage for another full year. This guarantee is still in effect even after your AppleCare warranty runs out, so it could definitely come in handy! (Note: this guarantee is only available for residents of the United States and Canada).
Cellhelmet will also be featured on Friday's (March 8th) episode of Shark Tank, the number-one T.V. show in the United States, where entrepreneurs pitch their business/product ideas to 5 "Sharks" for an investment, offering equity in their company. You can watch ABC at 9 p.m. Eastern time on Friday to get a glimpse!
