Latest NuGuard KX Cases from NewerTech Offer Ultimate Protection for New Apple iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display

PR_KX_NuGuardKX_AirNewerTech has announced the immediate availability of updated NuGuard KX cases for the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display. The NuGuard KX case is the only one of its kind: rather than just surround the iPad with a bulky, hard plastic case, it uses an advanced gel to physically absorb the shock of an unexpected tumble down a flight of stairs as well as other accidental drops and falls. This slim and super-protective technology has been proven to meet and exceed Mil-Spec-certified protection for current iPad mini and iPhone 4/4S/5/5S models — without sacrificing style or adding bulk.

“Our NuGuard KX cases for iPhone and iPad mini have been very well received by thousands of customers, so we’ve expanded the product line to include the new iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display,” said Larry O’Connor, president of NewerTech. “The NuGuard KX installs in seconds on these new devices to provide incredible protection against accidental drops and dings, and they look terrific! They’re made from a space-age material that’s manufactured here in the USA, and we’ve managed to integrate this technology into these cases at a cost that’s competitive and helps preserve US jobs.”

Protection That Stays Out Of The Way

With its precision-molded buttons and accessibility cutouts, the NuGuard KX case allows for full operability of all buttons and switches, as well as access to all of the ports on the new iPad models. 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 takes just a few seconds.

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

Unlike typical protective case materials that add bulk and weight, the NuGuard KX case uses lightweight and efficient X-Orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy for ultimate protection. This patent-pending, lightweight and thin design allows for protection against accidental drops and impacts — unlike the added bulk typically associated with other, more expensive cases that attempt to provide this level of protection. 

Whoops! iPad Survives Four-Foot Drop and More

To prove its effectiveness, NewerTech 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, a NuGuard KX-protected iPad mini was tossed multiple times down numerous stairwells.

Get Total Confidence with a Lifetime Warranty

In addition to protecting the iPad line, 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.
