PONG case for iPhone 4/4S – Review


If like me, you get a little heavy handed with your iPhone and need it well protected. I suggest you try one of Pong’s Rugged Cases. Pong have made cases for a while and with the research that has gone into these cases, their age and expertise shows.

Although it makes the handset a little bulky, it’s worth it in the long run. I dropped it whilst up a set of ladders on to a wooden floor and it survived. I wasn’t mega high, about 6 feet. I really doubt it would have survived without the case on.

It covers all round the handset, has a raised edge on the front and back protecting the screen and the camera opening whilst lay down. This does allow it to collect dust on the screen though which is not so easy to wipe away.

Pong have really thought about this one. The case is thick for extreme protection, it still allows easy access to all ports, buttons and the switch. Even with fat fingers like mine they can move the mute switch to your desired location easily enough.

All round, it’s a very good case, the thoughts and research that went in to it shows. There are a lot of scientific parts to the case that help with battery life, increasing signal up to 30% and directing SAR radiation levels away from the body, that’s not things you can see but very clever.

a Pong case—by redirecting and redistributing near-field electromagnetic radiation (“cell phone radiation”) away from the user’s head and body and toward the back of the device—provides the mobile health benefit of reducing exposure to potentially harmful cell phone and Wi-Fi radiation by up to 95% below Commission safety limits, as measured on the SAR scale. Pong cases simultaneously maintain or even enhance the antenna’s TRP.

I’m glad I got this case, at £63.99 from Pong Research it’s not the cheapest but with the expertise that’s gone into it and saving on the cost of a new phone when you drop it, it’s not that bad of a price. You could possibly get a Pong Rugged Case cheaper on that marketplace website known as eBay. I’m looking forward to seeing one for the iPhone 5 too. I’m already on the mailing list, maybe they’ll stick a battery in for good measure.

    Nice review Carl. Pong case reviews usually their scientifically engineered qualities eg internal antenna that redirects significant radiation, increases battery life and signal strength. It’s great that the case stands alone and grabs attention just by it’s rugged qualities. As well as the Pong phone cases, Pongs briliant iPad covers (increases cellular reception up to 10X and range up to 3X!) are available at http://www.mobilesafety.com.au/products

    Nice review Carl. Most Pong case reviews usually focus on Pong’s scientifically
    engineered qualities eg their internal antenna that redirects significant
    radiation, increases battery life and signal strength. It’s great that

    Carl – one concern I’ve read about the Pong case is that it focuses radiation out the back of the case, so if it is used in a pocket with a headset while the back of the case is against the body, you are actually getting much more exposure to the gonads or vital organs than you would get without the case.

    Something to think about…….

    Lab Rat – we advise keeping your phone away from your body (cell phone manufacturers have warnings in their instruction manuals telling you to keep your phone an inch or so away from your body). If for some reason you have to carry it on your body, when
    placing your phone in your pocket, make sure that the front of the
    phone is facing your body and that the back of the Pong case is facing
    away from your body. This way the radiation is being redirected away
    from your body. Hope this helps clarify! You can find FAQS here: http://www.pongresearch.com/customer-service.html#FAQS
