STYLE

The new two-piece snap design simplifies case assembly and removal. When compared to the previous model, I found that the iPhone 6 version snaps into place easier than ever before.  Resurgence is made up of a specially formulated polycarbonate to improve impact resistance and absorb energy from drops and bumps. The new design incorporates compact advanced circuitry, resulting in a smaller and slimmer fit.  (And because it’s from OtterBox, you know your device is well protected.)

FUNCTION

Resurgence boasts 2,600 milliamp hours (mAh) of battery power, providing more than two-times the battery life of the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 battery case utilizes auto-stop technology, which conveniently shuts off the case when the phone has reached full charge, saving extra battery for later. Resurgence supports both wired and wireless syncing without removing the case and includes a headphone jack extender.

One of my favorite features of the OtterBox Resurgence case for the iPhone 6 is the redesigned silence/vibrate toggle.  (If you’re like me, then you’ve chipped countless nails just by silencing your phone.  No more chipped nails with the extended on/off  button.)

For superior protection and functionality on the go, never run out of battery life again with the OtterBox Resurgence Power Case.  The OtterBox Resurgence Series for iPhone 6 ($99.95) is available in black, glacier, cardinal, mint ice in select retail stores and online at OtterBox.com.

OtterBox Introduces Alpha Glass Fortified Glass Screen Protectors

August 22nd, 2014 by Christen
OtterBox Alpha Glass
When it comes to screen protection, smartphone users must choose between a scratch protector that covers the screen with a foggy, bubble-filled film or opting for a naked, scratched touch screen. These flawed options are made obsolete with OtterBox®Alpha Glass, the toughest screen protector yet, boasting flawless clarity, reactive touch, anti-shatter glass and precision application.

From the No. 1-selling case brand for smartphones in the U.S., OtterBox Alpha Glass offers a pure touch screen experience with maximum protection against scratches and impact.* Alpha Glass is quick and simple to install, does not affect display clarity and is available now for Apple® iPhone® 5/5s, iPhone 5c and Samsung® GALAXY S® 5.

“Alpha Glass was designed for smartphone users who want a truer touch screen experience with the benefits of protection from scratches and drop,” said OtterBox CEO Brian Thomas. “The unique properties of our shatterproof glass bring a completely new experience to our customers. Alpha Glass is so clear and smooth, most people will forget they even have a screen protector on. The tactile experience is second to none, with no ‘sticky’ or ‘tacky’ texture.”

OtterBox Alpha Glass

Installing the GALAXY S 5 and iPhone 5/5s/5c glass screen protector is simple. Lightly coat the glass with the provided alcohol wipe, clean the display with the included microfiber cleaning cloth to remove fingerprints and dust, and align the screen protector with the Alpha Glass application card. Gentle pressure safely secures the screen protector and pushes out any air for bubble-free coverage. Alpha Glass can be easily removed at any time with no leftover residue.

OtterBox Alpha Glass

Alpha Glass can be used as a standalone screen protector or be combined with premium protective cases from OtterBox for a complete solution. Compatible versions of Alpha Glass are available for Commuter Series®, Commuter Series Wallet, Symmetry Series and Resurgence Power Case.

Powered Up Protection With The @OtterBox Resurgence Case [Review]

July 1st, 2014 by Christen

OtterBox Resurgence

 

 

You’re low on battery power and there’s no power outlet in sight — what do you do?  There’s no greater feeling of anxiety or power planning remorse than when your smartphone power indicator reads 1%.  Luckily, full mobile protection just got an upgrade with the powered up Resurgence case by OtterBox.  Otterbox has just launched the latest in their suite of stylish,  yet functional smartphone accessories.  The Otterbox Resurgence collection offers high-speed charging technology in a sleek yet case design.

 

OtterBox Resurgence

 

The Resurgence case comes prepackaged with a two-piece snap designed case, mini usb cord and headphone jack extender.  Resurgence is made up of a formulated polycarbonate to improve impact from drops and bumps. A metallic finish with soft touch coating gives the power case a polished look and pleasant feel during in hand use.

 

OtterBox Resurgence

 

 

The Resurgence power case comes pre-charged but in order to obtain a full charge you simply connect the USB to a power source.  When connected to a power source the phone charges first, then the case begins to charge.

The Resurgence battery case supports both wired and wireless syncing without removing the case and includes a headphone jack extender which doubles as a headphone cord keeper.  The mini USB connects to the case which is already equipped with a iPhone lightning adapter – if you’re like me an use multiple devices, you can now toss your iPhone usb cord in a drawer because this case eliminates the need for carrying multiple USB cords at once.

OtterBox Resurgence

 

The headphone jack extender/cord keeper is a necessary accessory only if you like to remove your headphones often.  Otherwise, its a bit cumbersome a feels like an extra accessory that’s easy to misplace or lose.  In the future, I’d like to see a design with the extender built-in (the less unnecessary accessories, the better).  

 

OtterBox Resurgence

 

The 2000 milliamp (mAh) Resurgence case doubles the battery life of your iPhone (or Samsung) device.  The iPhone 5s battery case utilizes auto-stop technology, which conveniently shuts off the case when the phone has reached a full charge, saving extra battery power for later and eliminating the need to closely watch the device’s battery level when charging.

To view case the case charge level, simply tap the status LED button on the front of the case.  The button will blink three times and the final illumination of the four lit sections will identify available case power in 25% increments.

 

OtterBox Resurgence

 

Overall, the Resurgence power case is an essential addition to your iPhone 5/5s.  It looks great, feels great and has the functionality of keeping you charged while on the go.  Now if only we could figure out a way to add the OtterBox Commuter Wallet function to the power case… a girl can dream, right?

 

Resurgence power cases are now available in blackglacierteal shimmer or satin rose on at select retail locations for $99.95. For more information or to order online visit OtterBox.com.

Style:  The OtterBox Symmetry case in Dreamy Pink, is a mixture of tonal colors that is a welcome design into an ever-growing world of smartphone accessories.  I’ve seen everything from plane jane cases to ostentatious glittery masses, and the mix of prints, colors and 3D-like optical illusion stands out among what’s considered fashionable smartphone accessories.  The subtle hues of plush pinks, lavenders and purple in geometric shapes displays total feminity, while the rubber grip and hard shell protects your device from nicks and scrapes, making it a great balancing act of style and protection.

Stylish Smartphone Protection With OtterBox Commuter Cases

February 19th, 2014 by Christen

Stylish smartphone protection isn’t always easy to find.  Sometimes the style outweighs the protection elements, and let’s face it, most of the time the really protective smartphone cases aren’t very stylish at all.  Recently, I got the opportunity to try out the OtterBox Commuter series cases which offer just enough style and protection that any on the go woman (or man) could use.

OtterBox Commuter Cases

The Commuter series cases are one of the best cases I’ve put my hands on.  Not only are the cases protective, but once you entrust your smartphone within its grasp it’s feels downright indestructible!

3D Commuter Series Western Flower

 

OtterBox Commuter 3D

Protection:  The Commuter series cases come with 2 layers of protection (actually it’s three).  It includes an inner rubber case, a hard shell exterior AND an easy to install clear screen protector.  Smartphone ports need protection from crumbs, dust and everything else too and OtterBox keeps the debris out with easy to maneuver port covers. After placing my iPhone 5s in this case, I literally felt like I could toss the phone across the room and it wouldn’t suffer a scratch, dent or one but of damage from impact. This case keeps your device so secure that it took longer to remove the protective case than it did to install it. (It was so secure that I was a little timid in maneuvering the removal for fear of damaging my device.) That’s real protection.

Style:  The 3D Commuter series western flower case in sea foam, is a feminine break away from the typical glitter, rhinestone and pretty in pink cases. The two tone of aqua teal hues, coupled with the 3D floral design was a welcome standout to what’s considered as fashionable smartphone accessories.

Overall:  As one of the most protective OtterBox Commuter cases that I’ve used, this case definitely gets an “A” for protection and “A” for style. What more could you want from a smartphone accessory that showcases your personal style while protecting your beloved device!

Protection:  The Commuter series cases come with 2 layers of protection (actually it’s three).  It includes an inner rubber case, a hard shell exterior AND an easy to install clear screen protector.  Smartphone ports need protection from crumbs, dust and everything else too and OtterBox keeps the debris out with easy to maneuver port covers.

Style:  This case isn’t the most stylish, but it is protective and quite practical. The OtterBox Wallet secret card tray houses 3-4 cards. (I used mine to keep my ID, bank card and Metro Card in my hands at all times, since you can rarely catch me without my smartphone in hand.) It’s not as stylish as one would expect, which is why I added some flare with a mirrored protective screen cover. This practical smartphone case is now a wallet and a mirror. SCORE!

Overall:  As one of the most protective OtterBox Commuter cases, this case wallet case is handy when going out without a bag or purse. It easily slides in and out of your pocket with ease. Now that I’ve added a mirrored protective case it’s a welcomed update from a one dimensional practical accessory into three and that makes me a pretty happy gal!
