Here’s a neat treat for those of you still up. Element Case is going to giveaway their new Vapor Pro case for iPhone. It doesn’t even come out until tomorrow (don’t you feel special). You can enter here by dropping a comment or retweeting this post (@crunchgear) before Thursday at 9am. Tell us why you want the case.
The Vapor Pro brings a lot of changes to the older Vapor case:
- Wider slots on top and bottom for headphones and dock connector
- A polymer section built over the antenna to eliminate “death-grip”
- A perforated SIM card slot
- A titanium alloy finish
- A special hex key tool for removal
We always liked the Vapor case; even for its price we thought it was the coolest iPhone case. After all the improvements, it looks like it’s going to be even better. Price is $149.99 for the collector’s edition (limited first run). The Vapor Pro includes a zippered carrying case and a keyring installation tool. Subsequent models for Verizon iPhone, more colors and other back plates will be released in the coming weeks.
If you want a chance at winning it, just retweet this post (@crunchgear) or leave a comment below with a valid email (otherwise we can’t contact you).
Element Case Debuts Vapor Pro Case for iPhone 4 – The Next Generation of Protection and Style Vapor Pro Brings a Fresh New Style, Bold Design and Ultra-Compact Protection to iPhone 4 in Solid Aircraft-grade Aluminum
February 23, 2010 – San Carlos, CA – Element Case (http://elementcase.com), the leading independent manufacturer of ma- chined aluminum mobile accessories, today announced the Vapor Pro (link to product page) available for sale. The high performance addition to the legendary Vapor line, the Vapor Pro offers a bold new look, added protection and new fea- tures that make it the flagship case for iPhone.
The ultra-light weight Vapor Pro weights just 20 grams and offers wider access ports on all sides of the iPhone 4 for compatibility with a full range of third party and after-market accessories, headphones, and charging cables. The case attaches to the iPhone 4 on two opposite corners in a unique diagonal configuration.
A proprietary aerospace polymer section of the Vapor Pro’s frame has been incorporated at the lower left of the case to prevent “detuning” of the iPhone 4 antenna, thus preventing the common “death grip,” known to lower iPhone 4’s signal strength.
The first offering of the Vapor Pro will be designated with an “FE” symbol for First Edition, and the bundled kit includes a machined installation tool, removable carbon fiber back plate and a molded EVA zipper case. The Vapor Pro FE will also include a special two tone electrolytic hard coated finish to resist abrasion many times that of traditional anodizing.
A version of the Vapor Pro for the Verizon iPhone is in production and is scheduled to be released soon.
“This new addition to the Vapor line offers the ultimate blend of style, functionality, and protection to the discerning iPhone 4 user.” said Jeff Sasaki, Founder and CEO of Element Case.
This limited edition first run of Vapor Pro is available now for $149.99. The case will soon be offered with optional back plates in an array of finishes and colors at prices to be announced.
