Kane and McHenry Enterprises' Cellhelmet for iPhone 5 ($50) is an example of a case more notable for the services that surround it than the product itself. Coming in eight semitransparent colors, the TPU case is similar to Incipio's NGP. It offers Sleep/Button protection, but no coverage for the volume buttons, and separate openings for the headphone port and microphone, Lightning port, and speaker. The main selling point is the one-year warranty the company includes against physical damage. It excludes liquid damage and scratched aluminum, and requires a $50 handling fee, but users worried about breaking their iPhones might find value in it.


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.
