Power Support's Air Jacket nearly invented the category of imperceptibly-thin cases for the iPhone and iPod, so it's no surprise that the two newest versions -- for the iPhone 4 ($40) and iPod touch 4G ($35) -- feature a similarly svelte profile. Available in a transparent black or opaque clear color, the Air Jackets for iPhone 4 and iPod touch retain the originals' open access to all ports and controls, while adding a special "self-healing" attribute meant to keep scratches to a minimum. Screen film is included with each version, one clear and the other HD Anti-Glare.

Updated May 3, 2011: Power Support has released Japan Relief versions of the Air Jacket for the iPod touch and iPhone 4 at the same prices as the original versions. The Japan Relief models are black with an image of the Japanese islands, plus a radiating heart emanating from Tokyo, where Power Support’s main offices are located. Each purchase will result in a $20 contribution to the Red Cross and assistance with relief efforts following the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disasters that damaged the country in March. As noted on the company’s packaging, these cases and all of the company’s products will continue to be “Made in Japan,” a continued point of pride for Power Support. The cases come with two pieces of film: clear and anti-glare screen film for the iPod touch, and clear front and back film for the iPhone 4.



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.
