NewerTech Confirms Its NuGuard KX Offers Ultimate Protection for the Apple iPad mini with Retina Display

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

“We confirmed that our NuGuard KX case protects the iPad mini with Retina display as soon as we could get our hands on a unit,” said Larry O’Connor, president of Newer Technology. “Its unique X-Orbing gel provides incredible protection against drops and scratches while maintaining a remarkably slim, lightweight profile. And, like all our KX cases, these cases feature a space-age material that’s manufactured here in the USA. We’ve managed to integrate this cool technology into the NuGuard KX to help preserve US jobs.”

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 the iPad from a purse or briefcase. And with its one-piece design, adding the protection of a KX case to an iPad mini with Retina display takes just a few seconds.

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.

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-protecting iPad minis were confidently tossed multiple times down numerous stairwells – on video. To view the videos, visit

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. The NuGuard KX protective case for iPad mini is available immediately.
