Gold may be a precious metal, but it's now also a desired color finish as far as high-end gadgets are concerned. And because many users are jumping on board, the color is fast and away becoming a standard hue when considering accessories for newly released devices. Most notably of course Apple's latest iPhone 5s, as well as a growing number of rivals from the Android side. Case manufacturers were obviously quick to follow this trend it seems with gold colored accessories designed to compliment the gold iPhone 5s. We have already taken a look at quite a few of these very accessories, including Element Case's Sector 5 Au aluminum hybrid case. Today we will be taking yet another one of Element Case's gold Au accessories for a spin - the Vapor Dock Au. Identical to its 30-pin sibling, the Vapor Dock Au is a Lightning connector charge and sync dock machined entirely out of a block of aluminum, and anodized in a svelte gold color. It looks mighty sharp, especially if you're looking to match your iPhone 5s with a golden friend. Catch the full review after the break!Read More
With the introduction of the gold iPhone 5s, a plethora of golden-colored accessories have made their way to market, if only to compliment the existance of the gold iPhone 5s. Because chances are that if you're an owner of a gold iPhone, you sure as hell don't want to cover it up with yet another muted color case should you seek appropriete protection or maybe a different type of an accessory. Worry not, Element Case has a new Gold Collection out that consists of its hottest accessories in honor of Apple's gold iPhone 5s.
The Sector 5 Au is one of a number of cases belonging to Element Case's charming Au Gold Collection, and it's pretty much the same hybrid aluminum bumper case we all arguably know and like - only anodized in a gold color to naturally compliment the gold iPhone 5s. If there's one luxury case brand worth considering as far as premium metal materials are concerned, it's Element Case. So be sure to make your way down below for our full, in-depth review of the Sector 5 Au.Read More
We hold a special place in our case-loving hearts for Element Case purely because it's a company that time and time again releases innovative cases that are out of the ordinary. Joining Element Case's ever expanding armada of premium cases is the Rogue AL case for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5. And it's one of Element Case's boldest designs to feature a heavily ruggedized approach. Despite having a hybrid construction that offers full drop and impact protection, the Rogue AL is said to still be as nimble and as lightweight as a regular everyday case. The Rogue features some really impressive material construction that includes genuine carbon fiber and aluminum.
And to balance things out a little, we'll also be taking a look at Element Case's Flight 5 case for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 - which could very well be the perfect minimalist and slim case for the carbon fiber enthusiast. Be sure to examine our full review to find out how these two cases really perform in practise.Read More
High-end case maker Element Case is known to make the headlines each time it produces a new case, and of course it means that we're all in for a one sweet treat that is sure to leave behind a few cavities in the form of a significant dent in the wallet department. But this time things have changed since we reviewed the hybrid Sector 5 bumper turned case. What once were lavish and over engineered case offerings with a closely guarded bulgy price tag, are now a bit more down to earth and a lot more sensible than ever before.
The perfect example is Element Case's new Solace case for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, the company's latest premium case with a lethal modern interpretation of the pricy Ronin case, but with a price that's somewhat easier to swallow. The Solace case features a hybrid design with svelte styling and bits of high-grade materials of which Element Case is best known for - machined anodized aluminum alloy. We'll tell you more about it in our full review after the break!Read More

Designed and built by a company many would call avant-garde in California, the Ronin also known as the Ronin Ti.2 is Element Case's flagship and most exquisite iPhone 5 case. But we're not here to review Element Case's standard Ronin case made with exotic South American Bocote hardwood and anodized aluminum. Instead, we have got our hands on the new Ronin Titanium G10 edition case for the iPhone 5 which is the most expensive thing Element Case has ever introduced. Just to hear how much one of these limited edition cases cost requires a glass of water and you sitting down. A Titanium G10 Ronin case will suck your wallet dry in a blink of an eye because it costs $350. That's nearly as much as what a new 64GB iPhone 5 retails for.
Price aside, this is probably the most premium case we have ever looked at. Are you curious to know what a $350 case is all about? Then be sure to catch our exclusive, in-depth review after the jump!
Continuing Element Case's Composite line and the renowned Ion legacy, the Ion 5 is the company's much improved third iPhone case iteration made for the iPhone 5.

With a real aerospace-grade matte carbon back integration, the Ion 5 is every carbon fiber-fanatic's dream iPhone 5 case.
TPU-style cases are a dime a dozen no matter what type of device you have. And why wouldn't they be when they're the most popular type of case around? We've seen our fair share of TPU cases to last us a lifetime, and then some. But what we haven't seen much of is really outstanding TPU cases that are in a league of their own. You know a TPU case is destined for greatness when Element Case is involved in the making. The Ion 5 is in a class of its own.
