Newer Technology Announces Availability Of NuGuard KX Protective Case For Apple iPad mini

Newer Technology Inc. announced the immediate availability of the NuGuard KX for iPad mini, a kinetic energy X-Orbing protective case for the Apple iPad mini. Backed by a lifetime warranty, the NuGuard KX provides Mil-Spec-certified protection for the iPad mini — without sacrificing style or adding significant bulk.

Thousands of our customers have loved the NuGuard KX case for iPhone, which we released earlier this year. Now, they can protect their iPad mini with the same great technology and design,” said Larry O’Connor, President of Newer Technology. “With its unique X-Orbing gel, the NuGuard KX installs in seconds to provide incredible protection against drops and scratches while maintaining a remarkably slim, light-weight profile that complements your iPad mini rather than compromising it.”

X-Orbing Gel Meets U.S. Military Standard MIL-STD-810G Drop Test

Unlike typical protective case materials that can add bulk to a case design and your iPad, the NuGuard KX uses state-of-the-art X-Orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy for ultimate protection in an incredibly slim profile. This patent-pending, lightweight and thin design allows for protection against accidental drops, impacts and scratches — unlike the added bulk typically associated with other, more expensive cases that attempt to provide this level of protection.

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 ports on the iPad mini. For added grip, the backside of the KX features a crosshatch texture that also makes it easy to remove from a purse or briefcase. And with its one-piece design, adding the protection of a KX case to an iPad mini takes just a few seconds.

To prove its effectiveness, Newer Technology documented 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. In our own real-world testing, NuGuard KX-protected iPad minis were confidently tossed multiple times down numerous stairwells – on video.

Get Total Confidence with a Lifetime Warranty

In addition to protecting the iPad mini, 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.
