  • 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 only bad thing about this case IMO is that you are just as scared to scratch it up as you are the iphone itself. it needs its own damn case! lol

      it looks pretty intact and tough as well, like army gadgets .the color also gives the iphone a god deal of coloring instead of the dull black and white .

      E-That looks really cool. I've been waiting for something like this for a long time. Unfortunately, the price puts it way out of my range for something that is of luxury. It'd be nice to have one though!

      E- As far as looks go, these cases are the best looking one's I've seen by far. I wonder if they're as good at keeping the iPhone scratch free.

      E-I have to admit, this a pretty cool case. It looks bulky but the customization and the etched designs really make it something special. Hope it doesn't break when you actually drop your phone though.

      How can you think these cases are good? Are you all so enamored by your iPhones that you drool over any accessory! (marketed specifically for you, unfortunately)

      Its tacky, and bulky. It looks like it should be propped up at some FPS televised lan match running counter strike!
