Element Case Soft Tec iPhone 5 Wallet, iPad mini Folio Cases

Element Case showed some of its new and upcoming iPhone and iPad accessories at CES 2013, some including an iPhone 5 wallet case and an iPad mini folio-style case with stand features and a thin profile called the Soft Tec. Each designed with a polycarbonate hard shell that snaps onto the back of the iPhone 5 or iPad mini. What's interesting is how unique Element Case managed to make its iPhone 5 wallet case. The wrap-around design incorporates a magnetic closure, complete bottom and top opening, a camera and earpiece speaker cutouts - and a durable rubbery textured exterior that matches that of the iPad mini Soft Tec folio case. Element Case will also release a Soft Tec wallet case for Samsung's Galaxy S3.

The interior of the Soft Tec series is covered with Element Case's iconic soft, Ultrasuede material. The Soft Tec iPhone 5 wallet case will only let you store two credit cards and should retail for around $45. The iPad mini Soft Tech folio case has built-in magnets that will work with the iPad mini's magnetic sleep and awake function. It'll retail for $70. Element Case is expected to make its Soft Tec series of cases available in February.

The ElementCase Vapor Dock Continues The Vapor Tradition, Now Shipping

After nearly two month's since ElementCase introduced its first ever dock for the iPhone and iPod at CES 2012, the Vapor Dock, formally refereed to as the Vapor Base, is finally ready to empty your wallet at $120. This rather handsome looking dock is CNC machined from American made aluminum and then finished off using ElementCase's special new FLUX process for a satin coating that's silky smooth to the touch. The Vapor Dock fits most cased iPhones and iPods and features speaker holes with air chambers for enhanced audio, built-in Dock Connector charging cable, hidden bottom cable management, non-skin rubber feet and an UltraSuede covered back compartment.

ElementCase Vapor Base, Stunning Aluminum Charging Dock

If dropping $150 on one of ElementCase's gorgous aluminum cases left you without a compatible charging dock, then you'd love to hear this. ElementCase is about to release its own take on a charging dock for the iPhone with the Vapor Base. A dock stand made out of CNC machined aluminum that is designed specifically to fit your iPhone with either a Vapor Comp case or the more bulky Vapor Pro case seamlessly. The Vapor Base undoubtedly looks really good even if what we're showing you right here is only a pre-production Vapor Base docking stand. We've seen similar aluminum docks like the Elevation Dock spring up in recent weeks. Though the Vapor Base does have that cutting edge style ElementCase is most known for.

The Vapor Base doesn't come with its own dedicated sync and charge cable so you'll be using your own. Underneath is a bottom cutout that can route and store excess cable for a neat desk environment along with rubber anti-slip feet. It also features a perforated grille on the front that amplifies the sound coming out of the iPhone as well as a padded space towards the back to store small things such as your ElementCase's speed wrench. The Vapor Base is compatible with all ElementCase cases as long as you've got an iPhone 4/S.

The company first revealed its Vapor Base at CES 2012, and is expected to release its dock in a few colors this month for around $100. Hit up the source link below for the video interview.
