January 7, 2013, Las Vegas, NV - Newer Technology, Inc. (NewerTech®), a leading developer of Macintosh®, PC, iPod®, iPhone®, and iPad® performance upgrades and accessories, announced today the NuGuard® KX, a kinetic energy X-Orbing protective case for the Apple iPhone 5 and iPhone 4/4S models. Backed by a Lifetime Warranty, the NuGuard KX offers test certified military-grade protection for the iPhone without sacrificing style or adding significant bulk. The NuGuard KX will be shown in Other World Computing’s booth #5812, LVCC North Hall, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which begins tomorrow in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Extreme Protection Without Bulk Unlike common military-impact test grade iPhone case materials that can add bulk, the NuGuard KX uses state-of-the-art X-Orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy to protect an iPhone from accidental drops or scratching. This hyper-advanced gel is then engineered into a hard outer shell with a soft interior, bonded together into a stylish and effective one-piece design. The NuGuard KX is Quanta Laboratories certified to withstand the Shock Test Method of the MIL-STD-810G U.S. Military Standard for elite protection. Yet, the KX is barely half an inch thick so it can easily fit and slide into a pocket. And its Edge Guard over-molding provides enhanced iPhone screen edge protection without interfering edge-to-edge touch finger accessibility to ensure hassle-free touch keyboarding and ability to drag and organize app icons from screen to screen.

Protection That Doesn’t Compromise Convenience With its precision molded buttons and accessibility cutouts, the NuGuard KX allows for full operability of all function buttons and access to all of the iPhone’s ports. The backside of the KX features a crosshatch texture design for added grip that doesn’t make it hard to remove from pockets like other texturized cases. With its one-piece design, installing an iPhone into the KX is an easy, several seconds process.

X-treme Drop Test Videos Prove Effectiveness To prove its effectiveness, Newer Technology created a video demonstrating the protective qualities and durability of NuGuard KX in extreme use scenarios. To document Quanta Laboratories’ Mil-Spec certification, the recognized and required Method 516.6 Procedure IV (Transit Drop) test from 48 inches was recorded. Next, a NuGuard KX protected iPhone 5 was dropped from 20 feet – five times higher than the Mil Spec test height – from warehouse racking onto a concrete floor. Finally, the ultimate X-treme test… an iPhone 5 safely ensconced in a NuGuard KX was dropped from Other World Computing’s towering on-site wind turbine. To view the video, visit

Get Total Confidence with Lifetime Warranty In addition to protecting the iPhone, the revolutionary NuGuard KX provides ultimate peace of mind ownership. The best-engineered case deserves the best possible warranty, so the NuGuard KX is backed by a best-in-class full replacement Lifetime Warranty.

"As the technology of the iPhone reaches new levels, we feel that it deserves a new level of protection," said Grant Dahlke, Brand Manager, Newer Technology, Inc. "The NuGuard KX not only provides military-grade protection against drops and scratches with its unique X-Orbing gel, it also minimizes bulk so an iPhone can still easily fit and slide into a pocket or purse."
