Recently updated for use with the latest tablet-sized devices and cameraphones, Aquapac's 100% Waterproof Cases offer guaranteed submersibility to 15 foot/5 meter depths, carrying straps, and very simple insertion/removal designs. The larger version, also known as Large Whanganui 664 ($45), has ample space for an iPad inside, a set of three locks to keep water out of its hard plastic top seal, a collection of five moisture-absorbing desiccants, and a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap for carrying in water or on land. Aquapac's smaller iPhone version (aka Mini Phone/GPS Case 104, $30) instead uses two locks and a necklace, and has an optically clear back portion for underwater camera use; it doesn't include desiccants. Both cases will float on the surface of water unless held down; they don't include headphone ports or other ways to access the speaker/microphone features of the devices.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
