    Default 'Wood' You Believe What JackBacks is Doing to The iPhone 4?


    We have seen no shortage of cool, innovative iDevice cases since Apple began revolutionizing the mobile tech industry earlier this century. But the latest creation from the creative folks at JackBacks goes way beyond the limits of a simple iPhone case. This time around, your iPhone 4 can have its very own customized wooden back.

    Introduced earlier this summer, JackBacks is finally seeing their wooden iPhone 4 backs catch on. Thanks to their customizable nature and reasonable price (most are available for somewhere just under or over $100), these wooden panels with custom etching are getting some serious attention even as early Apple technology adopters prepare for the iPhone 5.

    Although the need for a new back is sometimes warranted for repair purposes, the majority of iPhone back replacements are engendered by users who simply want to customize their devices and make them unlike anything else around. Clearly, JackBacks is targeting this growing market segment with its popular line of wooden iPhone 4 backs.

    Best of all, to give your iPhone wood - so to speak - you don't have to send in your iPhone or part with it at all for that matter. Given that JackBacks are easy to install, once your order arrives, simply pop off the back of your iPhone (by first removing the two screws at the bottom of the device) and then replace the back with your customized JackBack.

    If you haven't seen one yet in the wild, you're bound to eventually. For now, you can check out the official JackBacks page by clicking here.

    There are a few companies that make these I would recommend it over a metal back, to retain good service.

    Yes they can be found cheaper, for instance I manufacture a very similar product for $45 base price, but I use three variations of bamboo (grass) and no wood. You can get your iPhone 4 customized to your liking for quite a bit less at PEACHii.com


    But the quotes below are referring to products that are not the same as this.

    I find it humorous that people comment without reading or investigating the actual product link.

    This is a Battery Cover Replacement not a thin sticker to put on top of the rear glass, that is stupid. The point is to replace the delicate glass with something alittle more durable and give the phone a earthy feel. It is the full rear cover. The stock glass (which breaks a lot) is replaced with a thin piece of wood or bamboo (grass).

    Those really cheap stickers add thickness to the phone, which would not allow it to fit in many aftermarket cases. Obviously they would still fit in the Apple bumper case though.
