NuGuard KX
Finding the best protection for my iPhone 5 is a continual quest for me, and I am sometimes rewarded with some excellent products. At Macworld/iWorld 2013, I found another jewel.

The NuGuard KX (the initials stand for Kinetic Energy X-Orbing) protective case from Newer Technology provides security and style, not the bulk I’ve experiences with others. The color I’m using is called Nubar Forest (also available in Roulette Red, Darkness, Eagle Shield, Trooper, Midnight, Buzz and Rose) feels great in the hand, and the pocket.

Unlike common military-impact test-grade iPhone case materials, this case uses state-of-the-art X-Orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy. This revolutionary technology is then engineered into an effective one-piece design which protects against accidental drops, impacts and scratches without sacrificing looks or adding mass to my precious cargo.

According to Newer Technology, the NuGuard KX has been Mil-Spec drop test-certified by Quanta Laboratories to MIL-STD-810G U.S. Military Standard for elite protection. Yet, the KX only measures slightly over 1/2" thick (including phone), so it can still easily fit in your pocket. It’s Edge Guard over-molding provides enhanced iPhone screen edge protection without interfering with edge-to-edge touch finger accessibility to ensure hassle-free touch keyboarding and ability to drag and organize app icons from screen to screen.

With its precision cutouts, the NuGuard KX allows for full access to all of the iPhone's ports and buttons. The KX features a unique cross-hatch texture design on the backside for added grip that won't make it hard to remove from pockets like my other texturized or rubberized cases. Thankfully, installation and removal of your iPhone from the KX is easy, taking only seconds to accomplish.

This exceptional case is backed by a best-in-class, full-replacement Lifetime Warranty, plus a No Risk, No Hassle 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. I’ve used this case for over a month now, and found it to be everything that was promised, and a delight to use. It has also garnished a number of compliments for both appearance and protection.

The NuGuard KX is available for the Apple iPhone 4, 4S or 5 for only $35.00. Visit for more information and the opportunity to purchase. I have not hesitation in recommending this case for both quality and value for the money. This is one more fine product from Newer Technology, which is available through Other World Technology.
