The end of week 4 and case number 20  is the cellhelmet case by Kane and McHenry Enterprises. This case is not only slim, but American made, and offers a 1 year warranty on your phone. If that doesn’t pique your interest I don’t know what will.  Keep reading to find out about the cellhelmet case and their appearance on TV tonight.

The cellhelmet case is made of a semi-flexible plastic that is strong enough to handle life’s bumps and bruises. The case, while having a smooth exterior, is not slick and the phone feels secure in your hands. The cell helmet doesn’t feel like it is something that could easily fall out of your hands.

This case covers all sides, the back, and wraps around the front corners to help protect your screen from drops. The case features openings for the mute slider, volume keys, headphone jack, power port, camera,  and speakers. The power button is built into the case and made from the same material as the case.

Included in the packaging you receive a registration card that has a code on it to register you case on their website. The card also features a toll-free number to call 24/7 if your case is damaged. Also the card includes the warranty information and limitations.

All you need to do is scratch off the code, go to cellhelmet.com and register your case with the provided code, and you are good to go.

The cellhelmet case comes in 8 transparent colors and the iPhone 5 case costs $49.95. Take the cost of the case plus the $50 deductible if you damage your phone and you are still far ahead of the $600+ cost for a new iPhone.

Kane and McHenry Enterprises, makers of the cellhelmet case are based in Pittsburgh PA. The have come up with one big options that makes this case stand out over all of the other cases I have reviewed thus far. They offer 1 year of accidental damage coverage for your device (this excludes water damage)*.  According to their website and case packaging, it doesn’t matter whether you got your iPhone 5 new or used, or have it jailbroken, the will repair or replace it.

This coverage gives you unlimited repairs and one replacement. Note that the coverage is good for 1 year and you must register your case within 30 days of purchase.

The cellhelmet case for iPhone 5 is built well, comes in 8 colors, and features a 1 year warranty. The cellhelmet case should be a no brainer for anyone who owns an iPhone 5.
