Logitech's protection+ iPhone case and +trip clip.
While there's no shortage of smartphone cases to choose from, a typical plastic or rubber case may not be enough for those prone to frequently dropping their phones.
Logitech unveiled a new line of extra-rugged smartphone cases Wednesday that will protect smartphones from serious bumps and drops.
The $34.99 protection+ case is compatible with the iPhone 5 and 5S and Samsung's Galaxy S5. Its body is made of a hard polycarbonate shell while its corners— which tend to be weak pointss on most devices— contain impact-resistant polymers. Behind the shell, the protection+ has an extra shock-absorbing rubber layer.
“Our smartphones take quite a beating,” Ariel Fischer, Logitech's director of smartphone accessories, said in a statement. “We designed the Logitech protection+ to give you peace of mind disguised in a great looking protective case that absorbs the daily shocks your phone experiences.”
The protection+ is so strong, in fact, Logitech says the case can be safely dropped from heights up to 1.8 meters (5.9 feet) without the fear of damage.
The case contains a metal plate in the back, which is used for two optional in-car accessories: the +trip and +drive. The $29.99 +trip is a mount that attaches your phone to your car's air vent while the $49.99 +drive dashboard mount attaches to your car's windshield.
The protection+ case and +drive and +trip accessories will be available in the U.S. and Europe next month.
