How LifeProof Cases Protect Your Device From Hot Liquids

Date: Mar 06, 2013

With More Car Cup Holders than Ever, Need for Protection Skyrockets.

Demographers tell us that we're drinking more hot beverages than any time since refrigeration was made available to the masses. And, our car interiors are a reflection of that fact. It wasn't that long ago that the only cup holder in a car was the guy riding shotgun.

This explosion of hot beverage consumption has led to a lot of interesting societal phenomena, like when the woman sued McDonald's after she spilled her hot coffee in her lap. It has also led to people spilling their drinks on their smartphones and tablet computers. LifeProof doesn't make a case to protect your lap from hot liquids as you pull away from the drive-thru window (too many widely varying sizes and shapes), but we do make excellent waterproof iPhone cases and cases for your iPad that shield them from steaming java.

When you list the things against which LifeProof cases protect, hot liquids should be at the top. The waterproof protection supplied by our iPhone and iPad cases allows owners to take their devices into the water down to 6.6 feet. But to be honest, on a day-to-day basis, getting your iPhone accidentally dunked in a supersized caramel macchiato is much more likely than taking it underwater to video your child's first swim lesson. By the way, the brew doesn't have to be hot; protection against iced coffee is included at no extra cost.

Further, our cases handle spills of hot black tea, hot chai tea, hot green tea, hot egg nog over the Christmas season, mulled wine in the winter, hot cider, hot toddies, hot cocoa (with or without marshmallows/whipped cream) and much more.

With this level of protection, you can hold your favorite hot beverage in your left hand, your iPhone in your right hand and still record your son's game winning catch while yelling at the top of your lungs – without worrying about spilling all over your iPhone. You can't put a price tag on that!

Finally, for those of you who can't live without bullet points, here they come:

  • It's only a matter of time before you spill hot liquid on your iPhone or iPad
  • In fact, you'll probably dunk it in a hot beverage someday soon
  • LifeProof cases protect your devices from hot liquids
  • You rest easier
