Ekto2 iPad2 Case by Uzibull
The Ekto2 case is a relatively inexpensive, $29.95, alternative to some of ther more expensive and bulkier iPad2 cases. This case is made from a softer silicone material with many air cells and ribs inside that provide cushion and create a "bounce" effect. If you happen to work withyounger kids and the iPad2 is dropped or if you are just one of those drop prone sort of people then this is a case that you should consider.
- Inner cells make the Ekto2 for iPad 2 more drop proof
- Protective ribs add an extra layer of durability
- Extra silicone in the edges and corners provide for more reinforcement
- The raised bezel on the around the perimeter of the screen protects against iPad 2 face plants
- All ports are easy to access. Speaker and camera lenses are completely unobstructed
Uzibull sent me this case to test out. I tested it for a about a month, using it throughout my work day. My caseload consists of varying age ranges from toddler through teens, so the case definently was challenged. I drop tested the iPad from 3 feet, 4 feet, and while walking which was approximently 5 feet off the ground. I was hesitant at first to drop test my iPad but it's still working perfectly without a scartch on it!
My only gripe about the case is that the silicone that sits on top of the iPad2 glass doesn't fit snuggly enough for my liking and in my opinion should be a little thicker. I did speak with a spokesperson from Uzibull and they said that it wasn't desinged that way and that that was a mold flaw when pouring the silicon. Either way it still does what it claims and that's protecting your iPad2
Uzibull also has a new FLEX system that will be coming out soon. The name most certainly stands for the systems flexibilty and the amazings things you will be able to do with it. The FLEX system will give your iPad 2 an assortment of strap and mounting options. The FLEX frame fits perfectly under the silicone cover and over the back of the iPad. All attachments are quickly released from the FLEX frame and can be interchanged easily.
