Keep Things Light With The Snow Peak Titanium iPhone 4 Case
June 9th, 2011
Here’s another iPhone case for the road. Each iPhone case serves a purpose somewhat: for aesthetics (like the Robot Silicon iPhone case), functionality (like the iBottle iPhone Case), some added feature (like the Red Pop or iShuttr Case) that will make using the smartphone easier.
And then there are the plain old cases for people who aren’t really into fussing over what case to stuff their iPhone in. For these people, though, the Snow Peak Titanium iPhone Case would be a gem to look at and to have.
Before anything else, let’s find out what makes titanium, the twenty-second element in the periodic table of elements, so special. First and foremost, it’s a very, very light metal. So light, in fact, that it’s the element of choice that is alloyed with aluminum and iron for space shuttles, automotive parts, medical and dental implants, and so on and so forth. It also makes for a great and superbly light iPhone case that barely adds to the total weight of your device once it’s fitted on.
These lightweight babies are made in Japan by pressing a single sheet of titanium over a special mold. The initial product is then hand-molded to perfection to ensure that it will literally be a perfect fit to your iPhone.
The cases run at a very high price though, with each one going for $119.95 (USD) from Snow Peak.
