  • 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 cases look great. The only downside I see from it (after viewing the site and sample pictures) is that the cases kind of make the phone look like a small portable HDD. But overall a great case none-the-less and the customized decals are an added bonus

      E- I'm not usually a fan of bulky cases but this seems worth it to me. I tend to drop my phone often, mostly cause I forget I have it on my lap or something, and a case like this would go a longggg way. Kudos to element on making something that stands out.

      E-OK, first off, this case IS totally awesome. I got mine when MMI ran the first contest. Didn't win so had to buy one. The case is bulky, but something I was willing to deal with. The look of the phone in the case definitely gets noticed when you use the phone. WOW FACTOR!!!!!! Case is durable, TO A POINT!!! can take a slight fall, but if you drop it from heights (standing) it may break. Most of them are plastic, designed to take a hit and save the phone. I went through two lids because of this. That is why replacing the lid is only $20 vs. $150 for the whole case. The engraving is very trick. Great for playing games, gives you more of a joystick feel. Definitely recommend purchasing if you want to splurge a little bit. Pricey but you will surely get noticed. Only other drawback is the lid. Does tend to be bothersome when you want to answer a call, but once again, something I am willing to live with. The two cons vs. all the pros of this case and the "DAYMN THAT'S HOT FACTOR" you get is def. alright in my book.
      My $.02
      Oh yeah, if I am picked, this will be gifted, I am not a douche. I have one, need to spread the love

      No prob. Alot of ppl want these things, figured I would give it the review it deserves. A point you made I totally agree with, if they came up with a way to make the lid touch sensitive this thing would be the absolute must have iPhone accessory! And the ability to upload any image you may want engraved!! Now that would be Schweet. Also open themselves up to more marketing. Any logo or picture!!!!

      yeah, own design for flip lids would be great!

      I had the choice of own but I chose the woody car on a green flip lid.

      E-I rarely post on here,but I feel the need to. All I can say is WOW. That case not only looks amazing,but it strikes your eye with its stunning shiny looks and design. You can tell the way it is constructed,your getting your moneys worth with full protection of your iphone. This case looks like it can withstand,rain and snow! And even that drop on the cement that we all hate.
