Put a SnowLizard in Your Pocket

During my time out in the field on archeological expeditions, I’ve caught and eaten a lizard or two. But I must admit, I’ve never had one in my pocket, and I’ve never heard of a Snow Lizard before, which sounds like a paradox for a warm-blooded creature.

The SLXTREME ($129.99) happens to be an extremely rugged and unique case for iPhone 4/4s/5, and it’s perfectly safe to put in your pocket. Your phone will be secure too, as you can drop it without damage from a height of 2 meters, and you can take it underwater to a depth of 2 meters as well.

The tough polycarbonate case would probably survive a rhinoceros stampede and a hippo drubbing. But the ruggedized case is only half the story.

This reptile comes with a solar panel that charges a hefty 2300mAh backup battery for times when you’re away from a power source and will practically double your phone’s battery life. All the ports and buttons are accessible. You can even plug into your favorite tunes with the waterproof 3.5 mm jack port.

Like a rhino, it may not be the most handsome lizard in the zoo, but the SLXtreme more than makes up for it with its ruggedness and functionality. SnowLizard made some attempt at beauty, however, as it comes in a variety of colors: white, black, tan, orange, and yellow. Take your pick. All these highly desirable features do not come cheap. You pay for what you get.
