NewerTech NuGuard KX Protective Case Protects the iPhone 5S Better For Less Money

For only $29.00, advanced, made-in-the-USA, X-Orbing gel provides extreme protection against accidental drops, impacts and scratches — without sacrificing style or adding significant bulk. NuGuard KX delivers up to eight times the shock absorption with less bulk and at a better price compared to similar protective cases.

WOODSTOCK, Illinois - September 10, 2013 - Newer Technology Inc. (NewerTech®), a leading developer of Macintosh®, PC, iPod®, iPhone®, and iPad® performance upgrades and accessories, confirmed that its popular NuGuard® KX case, the world's only iPhone case with kinetic energy X-Orbing gel, is ready to protect the amazing new iPhone 5S announced this week by Apple Inc. The KX case features a slim, one-piece design that combines a rugged, comfort-grip shell with a soft core. It's tough: the KX goes beyond Mil-Spec certified protection and is backed by a lifetime warranty. Encased in a NuGuard KX case, the iPhone easily survives 20-foot drops onto concrete — way beyond the average parking-lot free-fall that lies ahead for many new iPhones.

"Most people need to protect their iPhone to the max — but they don't want to encase it in hard, bulky plastic. That's why we developed the NuGuard KX case. Today, we're pleased to announce that it works perfectly with the iPhone 5S," said Larry O'Connor, president of NewerTech. "With its unique, made in the USA X-Orbing gel, the NuGuard KX installs in seconds to provide incredible protection against drops and scratches, while maintaining a remarkably slim, lightweight profile that highlights the forward-thinking look of your iPhone 5S."

Protection That Doesn't Compromise Size or Convenience
Unlike typical protective case materials that make other cases look like they're heading into battle, the NuGuard KX uses efficient X-Orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute impacts — providing the ultimate protection in an incredibly slim profile. 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 ports of the iPhone 5S. And with its one-piece design, adding the protection of a KX case to an iPhone 5S takes just a few seconds.

In a NuGuard KX Case, the iPhone Easily Survives a 20-Foot Drop Onto Concrete
To prove its effectiveness, NewerTech documented the protective qualities and durability of NuGuard KX in extreme-use scenarios. To highlight Quanta Laboratories' Mil-Spec certification, the recognized and required Method 516.6 Procedure IV (Transit Drop) drop-test from 48 inches was recorded. But we didn't stop there: check out the 20-foot drop test or watch an iPhone 5 survive a drop from our wind turbine. To view the videos, visit

The Industry's Best Warranty In addition to protecting the iPhone 5S, 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 full replacement Lifetime Warranty.
