  • Element Case, BULK Now Classier! (Giveaway Ended)

    Element Cases are the most unique iPhone/ iPhone 3G cases. They consist of 4 parts, a front “flip lid”, a plastic frame, a metallic body colored as per your choice and an anodized aluminum back- painted to match the case color. The anodized back can also have a high quality laser engraved design. All these parts are kept together in place with the help of a few screws. You can select from the pre-made designs, limited editions or go for a special edition of yours with custom graphic and color.

    All Element Cases are hand-made. They ARE a bit big - but they do their job well. Also, if you have had an experience with external battery cases like a Mophie Juice Pack or Incase Power Slider, you won’t have any problem. This case is designed keeping gamers in mind and thus offers a great grip and feels nice in hand (s) that way (though a bit uneasy in pocket).

    The front lid as well as the anodized back panel can have a custom graphic and color of your choice thus making each piece unique. These have open ports for dock connector, power button, headphone jack, camera and the volume button as well. The phone is kept firmly in place with the help of plastic frame screwed to the body. This makes the installation a pain- to put the phone in or take it out, you need to remove the screws with the help of a special ‘screwdriver’ included that can be kept in your wallet all the time due to it’s tiny size. Also, the flip lid is kept in place with magnets that clamp to the screws. While using the phone, the lid can be clamped to the back as well. These magnets don’t affect the signal at all as per my observations.

    The only potential improvement in the case could be making the flip lid touch compatible - that'd be some tech though.

    All in all, these cases are really wonderful though the installation is really difficult and removing the flip lid everytime to use the phone can get irritating. But, if you do not care about the small glitches, you can get these cases from Element. The price ranges from $100 to $200 and they ship internationally - oh, and we are giving away a white element case with grey anodized panel. 2 flip lids- a blue and an orange- included. The back has a default element logo and flip lids have random designs. You also get an extra screw and a “screw driver” with some instructions of how to put the case on your phone. To participate, just leave a comment in the format “E- Any thing you would like to say about the case” (mandatory). The format is strict and any comment ignoring it will not be counted as an entry. All double entries and PM entries will be disqualified. The winner will be chosen randomly and will be announced in a week. The prize can be shipped worldwide as well.

    P.S. If you don’t own an iPhone or iPhone 3G, please give others a chance

      E- The case looks great and gives it a more expensive look than the rubber sleeve my iPhone is currently sat in.

      E-Perfection! I have owned two iPhones and about a dozen cases. None of which lasted, I liked or just didn't do their job. I think this case is amazing and I think it's bulkiness will protect your investment!

      I would love to be entered into the raffle to win! Thank you.

      E- I am very particular about my gadgets but I am also a tight wad. I bought and iPod touch before I got my iPhone and instead of buying a screen protector I left the piece of plastic on screen that it came with - so lame

      I would love one of these cases to protect my beloved phone which actually has some cracks in the glass from it's previous owner.

      E- this looks awesome!!! I been looking for a nice case that looks like it would go trough alot and not put a scratch on my phone but every case i get either brakes or doesnt work properly, especially like the "elemeny" design in the back, it might be a little big but looks nice the only problem is that it cost way to much

      E-It Rocks! I esp. like the "liquid" style over the "alloy", since it has more contours and is both 3g and 2g compatible. Also, yes the lid removal could become a pain, but def worth the show and tell; and lets not forget, protection. I would like to see the flip lid, but also what I was thinking is why not mill a piece of glass or acrylic with a beveled hole for the home button and flush it firmly on top and make a housing or lid to hold it on. I have never tried adding a piece of glass, plexy, poly, etc, but if it doesnt hinder its functionality and touch is still good, then thats a change I'd make. Also, tap a hole on the back or add tabs for mounting. And hey Element, cnc some custom car-mounts, alloy belt clips and stands / bike mounts etc.. wooot!

      I have a Iphone - Classic
