Snow Lizard debuts SLXtreme case for iPad to protect your tablet from Mother Nature’s fury

If you like living on the edge, you really can’t take your iPad with you. Surviving sub-zero temperatures, dealing with sand, and functioning underwater aren’t really the iPad’s forte, so to speak. Snow Lizard is known for its insanely rugged iPhone cases and now it’s adding a new iPad case to the mix, called the SLXtreme. This super durable case fits the fourth-generation iPad only, though.

The SLXtreme iPad case is made of a hard polycarbonate – ABS plastic shell with shock absorbing panels built into the back. Snow Lizard says the SLXtreme is MIL-Spec 810G graded, so it can survive drops from 6 feet above. The case can even protect your iPad under 6 feet of water because of its IP-68 certification. Neither sand, nor sleet, nor small hail can damage your iPad while its inside the SLXtreme case – at least, that’s the claim.

In addition to all this protection, the SLXtreme case can also charge your other devices when you need it to. The company added a massive 10,200-mAh battery and USB-out to keep the iPad and all your other devices charged while you’re out in the wilderness. The case is VESA mount compatible, too, so you can mount it onto a compatible stand, anywhere you want, whether it be on your speedboat or your tree stand. The case comes in black or yellow, and costs around a pricey $200.

Of course, most people don’t need an iPad case that’s quite this heavy-duty, but the SLXtreme case could be very useful to avid campers, boaters, hunters, or other outdoors enthusiasts who like to get off the grid now and then.
