First Look: Newer Technology NuGuard Silicone Case for the Apple iPad

Unlike Newer Technology’s other NuGuard iPad cases, the NuGuard Soft Silicone Case ($18) covers almost all of the iPad’s body — except for its screen — here using a variable thickness layer of rubber in your choice of six colors. This budget-priced offering generally feels thinner than other rubber cases we’ve tried for the iPad, but does feature rear grooves for added grip.

On May 13, 2010, iLounge published The Complete Guide to iPad Cases and Protection, a multi-page comparison of over 70 different iPad cases and film protectors, sorted by genre. The following details were added to this piece by that comparison article; please click on the link above for additional comparative discussion of similar protective options.

In very short summary, NuGuard Silicone feels like a cheaper, crappier knock-off of FlexGrip—as if it came from the same plant in China, using an earlier mold. There are two similar indented grips on the back, less precisely tailored holes, including a Dock Connector hole that isn’t even quite right with Apple’s own cables, and a bulging issue. Six colors are the only reason it’s even a little interesting; no screen protection is included.
