So, you have just gotten yourself a spanking new iPhone, and would want to do all that you can to ensure that it looks as pristine as possible? If that is the case, then you might want to check out the AL13 iPhone bumper, where it offers protection without adding on to the bulk. Of course, there is also the issue of cost, where higher quality bumpers are concerned, but is it not nice to see someone think of the average person who does not have that much disposable income, and yet want to obtain quality at a minimal price? This is where the AL13 iPhone bumper, where it has been specially designed to offer protection for the iPhone without having to change its look. It was first launched launched as a successful Kickstarter campaign, and today the AL13 is available for purchase online.
The person behind the AL13 said, “The iPhone is elegant just as it is; the beauty of its design stands out so we want to preserve it. The AL13 is created from Aerospace grade aluminum, so you get a slim, lightweight frame that’s tough enough to shield your iPhone from bumps and scratches yet elegant enough to blend perfectly with the iPhone’s form.”
Having already surpassed its funding goal of $20,000 on Kickstarter in February 2013 with total pledges hitting a cool $86,250, it is nice to take note that 100% of the Kickstarter backer’s orders were delivered on time. This is definitely a rarity, especially when you consider how 84% of Kickstarter’s top projects are shipped late – or at least, that is what CNN.com says.
The AL13 works this way – it will raise the iPhone away from surfaces that protects the edges and absorbs the shock from bumps and knocks. There is also the presence of a rubber lining which functions as a shock absorber to minimize impact damage, while protecting the iPhone while installing the AL13. This is a high impact, anti-scratch, anti-fingerprint and anti-glare polyurethane screen protector which ensures (or at least it does its very best) to keep your screen in pristine condition. The slide cover will simply glide on and locks into place, all done without the need for any screws or tools.
The AL13 will boast of models for the iPhone 4, 4s and 5, where it will come in Slate Black, Gun Metal, Silver, Red and Blue shades for $79.99 a pop.
