LifeProof iPad Case

I have been in search of the perfect iPad case since I bought my iPad 2 several years ago. I have considered the Scanstrut, Griffin, Otterbox and a strange vinyl bag that zips shut.  Most of them seemed to bulky and covered up the functionality of the iPad.  I was searching for "nirvana", the holy grail, the perfect case that I could take out in the rain, snow, dirt and even underwater.  Had I finally found "the one" to keep my little baby protected and dry.

I have owned a LifeProof case for my iPhone for over a year now and have been very happy with its performance.

The new LifeProof case for the iPad was released recently and is called the "nuud" a little play on words.  It is called nuud because the iPad screen remains completely uncovered while the rest of the device is encapsulated in a waterproof case.

I kind of questioned if this case would protect my iPad. There are two large o-ring seals, one for the front facing glass and one to connect the two pieces of the case together.  I pored over the LifeProof website, analyzed the specs and watched a bunch of YouTube videos and became convinced that this might be a great case.  I have not ordered one yet, but if the quality is as good as my iPhone case it may be worth the $129 price tag. For $149 you get the the plastic cover and stand too.

Features:

  • Dimensions: 10.4in x 8.2in x 0.8in / 265mm x 208mm x 20.5mm
  • Weight: 0.7lbs / 310gms
  • Water Proof: IP068 Standard. Fully submerge to 6.6 feet / 2 meters for 30 minutes
  • Shock Proof: Military Standard 810F-516. Designed to withstand drops from 4 feet / 1.2 meters
  • Dirt Proof: sealed from dirt and dust particles to the IP-68 rating
  • Snow Proof: Keeps out all snow and ice to the IP-68 rating
  • Patent Pending speaker opening
  • Waterproof Ear bud adapter
  • Fully functional Home button, mute button, volume control
  • Accessible charge port
  • Double AR coated glass port for the rear facing camera
  • Transparent back
The specs and the videos speak for themselves. If you want the best case with the best protection for your iPad, this is it.  The case is not cheap at $129 but look at it as a insurance policy. You won't have to worry about damaging your iPad ever again.

The installation instructions seem long and complicated. There are all these orange warning stickers to check this and check that. You must do a water test! All the reviews say to read and follow all directions or you will have leaks. LifeProof puts out quality products and I am not scared of a few orange warning stickers.  My order is going in soon.

Give me some feedback, does anyone have one of these, do you Love it? Hate it?

  1. The innovative solution in the iPhone was to remove the traditional keyboard; instead, there is a touch screen supported by the Multi-Touch technology. No stylus is needed; everything is operated with the use of a finger or multiple fingers. Coque iphone 4

  4. Waterproof smartphone case boasts the apparatus a higher level of dust and humidity defence while not impairing in any way the interaction with the apparatus. whereas there have been some complaints about the detail that it can at times become somewhat hard to kind and the screen sensor responds harder, using waterproof situations does provice good protection to your iPad.

  10. We cannot keep our smartphone away from direct atmosphere which means that it will clearly be exposed to several factors which can be harmful for its lifespan. These harms can be done by daily uses. For examples, scratches on the screen, faded or removed color in various parts of a smartphone, faded color or dust particle penetration due to direct sunlight and dust. These could be really very harmful conditions for your smartphone but you can get rid of all these harmful possibilities simply by purchasing Mobile Covers which are resistant to such smartphone harms.
