Meeting High-Grade Standards for Military Specification Drop Protection,
ION 6 Survives Over 26 Drops from 48 Inches
December 10, 2014 – San Carlos, CA – Element Case, the premier boutique manufacturer of luxury accessories for smart phones and tablets, today announces its popular, affordable and stylish ION case for iPhone 6 surpasses MIL-STD-810G 516.6 transit drop standards for superior, military-grade protection. Maryland’s F2 Labs – an accredited, full-service product conformity assessment organization – ISO/IEC 17025 accredited by the American Association of Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) – provided the objective third-party testing for this official certification.
This specific ranking means that any iPhone 6 correctly installed inside an ION case is rated to survive at least 26 drops onto a solid surface from 48 inches of height with screen functionality and navigation fully preserved. Only a handful of smart phone cases and accessories meet this qualification, especially at a $50 price point.
Long known as one of the industry’s most protective cases – without the bulky size and boxy form factor of other protective cases – the Element Case ION’s new F2 Labs’ certification assures consumers are getting the highest possible protection for their iPhone 6.
“We have always prided ourselves on designing attractive, ergonomic and — above all – protective cases for iPhone,” said Jeff Sasaki, CEO and Founder of Element Case. “This new certification officially documents the level of protection that even our most affordable case, the ION, can offer.”
