The release of the Element Case Sector 5 aluminum case for iPhone 5 is highly anticipated and we appreciate how patient you’ve been while we kick off production and start shipping the first orders. Even though there are images and information on the Sector 5 product page, we’ve seen that you still have a lot of questions about availability and details of our newest CNC aluminum iPhone 5 case. We’ve seen the questions in the comments on our blog, Twitter, Facebook and Google+ pages and wanted to get them together in one place so that you could see answers.
Top 5 Sector 5 FAQ
- 5. When will the Sector 5 orders ship/be released/be available to those not on the list?
When you get your invitation (which are going out faster all the time), it will have the estimated shipping date for your group. That date is not exactly the date that your order will go out, but the date for which we will start shipping cases from your group in the order in which they were received. We complete production on new inventory every day and if we run out on the first day, more orders will continue shipping the day after.
Production is ramping up and we are able to produce more and more cases each day. Thanks for sticking with us, we’re able to send out more invitations to order for each group and yours will be coming very soon.
- 4. Is there going to be a Vapor Pro for iPhone 5?
The Element Case Vapor Pro is an awesome iPhone 4 case, but now we’re talking about iPhone 5 and we’re always looking ahead so that we can bring you innovative, original products that you’ve never seen before anywhere else. We prefer to bring new ideas to the table for your iPhone 5 than to try to rehash and package old ideas, no matter how cool they remain. Sector 5 is here and it’s unlike any other case that has ever been on the market. If it’s not exactly what you want, sit tight – we’ve got more coming and it’s going to be a wild ride.
- 3. What accessories will the Sector 5 First Edition come with?
The Sector 5 First Edition is, like our Vapor Pro cases, a complete kit that covers all of the facets of protection that you need for your iPhone 5. Included in the kit are a Ultrasuede back plate, a Speed Wrench, screen protector and molded Transit Zipper Case.
- 2. How much does the Sector 5 weigh?
Almost nothing – it tips the scales at only 17 grams! It’s 2.66″ wide, 5.15″ long and .35″ deep, too!
- 1. Can you tell me where my spot is in line?
No, actually, that is pretty tough to predict at this point. Production is getting faster every day and we anticipate being able to increase the size of the order groups that we’re sending invitations to. We expect that in the next 3-4 weeks we will have sent everyone on the list an order invitation. There have been so many requests to check status that we would have to allocate one person to only check on those requests – we’re still a small company and we can’t afford to take any manpower away from building/processing/shipping the orders.
