4 accessories to protect your phone from April showers

4 accessories to protect your phone from April showers

4/23/2014

Smartphone owners have a significant advantage when it comes to staying informed about spring weather. If they're wondering what Mother Nature has in store for the next few hours, they can simply check out the local forecast on a mobile weather app. At the same time, mobile users need to be careful that their smartphones are adequately protected during spring's rainy days. In wet weather, it's all too common for phone owners to drop a slippery device into a nearby puddle. That's why it helps to be prepared for the worst by equipping phones with waterproof accessories.

Here are four of the best products designed to keep mobile devices safe from the elements:

1) iBattz Mojo Refuel Aqua
This unique iPhone case, compatible with both 5 and 5S models, features an interchangeable 2200mAh battery, allowing your phone to charge while enduring a spring downpour. The case's IPX8 certification means that it can protect devices submerged 3 meters underwater, according to techshout. Beyond its waterproof capabilities, the Mojo Refulel Aqua is shockproof, dirtproof, snowproof and childproof.

2) BubbleShield
Outdoor enthusiasts need a particularly robust accessory to keep their devices secure during spring adventures. With BubbleShield, kayakers can feel safe about keeping their iPhones or Android tablets handy throughout their journeys. The waterproof sleeve is also sound-permeable and photo-ready, which means that owners can take pictures and videos of their outdoor experiences.

3) LifeProof fre
The LifeProof fre, available for the iPhone 5S and 5C, gives individuals full access to their devices' external features, including the 5S's Touch ID fingerprint sensor. The case's waterproof seal makes it possible for phones to be submersed 2 meters underwater for an hour, so even the heaviest April shower should not be an issue. With a clear back and gray sides, the LifeProof fre's design allows iPhone 5C owners to show off their devices' vibrant colors.

4) Griffin Survivor
In addition to rain protection, the Griffin Survivor's polycarbonate frame enables phones to survive drops, vibrations and many other common threats. The case includes a clip that can be snapped onto belts or backpack straps, so you can keep your device readily accessible during unpleasant spring weather.

If your waterproof phone accessory fails to perform its function, your insurance for iPhone plan may not offer coverage for your inoperable device. That's why you need ProtectCELL's device protection program. In addition to water damage, the plan covers phones that have suffered screen cracks, body whacks, power surges and any and all destructive incidents.
