Anyone that knows me and my hubby know that we are big advocates when it comes to protecting our smartphones from wear and tear, damage and dangers of the everyday by purchasing a reliable case. Especially with kids who love to just grab a cell phone and check out any games that may be downloaded onto it, you can imagine how easily it can get dirty or worse, be dropped accidentally.

Over the years we have owned our share of different style cell phones and smart phones, the first accessory we always buy after getting a new phone is of course a case. For me, a case has to be solid but light. It has to protect my phone from scratches, bumps and dings. It has to slide easily in and out of a pocket or purse, access is a must.

Caseco Inc. is a leading Canadian manufacturer of innovative products designed to enhance popular mobile phones, tablets and wireless devices. Their motto is “Designed for life”. More than just a business philosophy, Caseco designs products, business operations and customer service to fit your lifestyle and meet the demands of your busy everyday.

Caseco products are designed and engineered to meet the needs of today’s demanding mobile users, delivering superior performance, trend-setting style, higher manufacturing quality and far greater value than its competitors.

When we were asked to take a look at a couple of Caseco smartphone cases I happily went to their website and started browsing for cases for the iPhone 5S and the Samsung Galaxy S4!

We chose the Shock Express for both iPhone 5S and the Samsung Galaxy S4. What drew me to this particular case is the design, it looks good and it feels good when you're holding it. Plus it comes in a variety of fun, bright colours. 

As nice as it looks though, this case is tough! The Caseco Shock Express is a double layered case that protects your phone all around. The tough, hard-shell exterior adds strength and durability. It's simple to wipe off smudges with a soft cloth, keeping your case shiny! The soft interior layer helps absorb shocks from bumps and drops. The Shock Express fits snugly over your phone and is easy to put on.  It also comes with a screen protector, those can be tricky to put on without getting dust or air bubbles underneath but I highly recommend putting it on to prevent scratching up your screen.

The colourful outer shell of the Shock Express is what protects your phone, allows you to easily slip it in and out of your pocket or purse and also gives your phone some new style. The sides of the case are rubber which gives it grip to avoid dropping and the case also gives your phone a little weight, making it feel more durable. As I said earlier, the Shock Express comes in a variety of bright and fun colours like the one I chose for the iPhone 5S, pink and we got it in black for the Samsung Galaxy S4. The only thing hubby said he would see adding onto his Shock Express case would be a belt clip, but that's just an extra. 

We were also sent the Caseco PowerBox Universal, in black – that way hubby can use it also! The PowerBox Universal is a backup battery charger with a 2600 mAh capacity, that provides extra power to your phone. Just a smidge bigger than your average tube of lipstick, the PowerBox Universal is small enough to fit in your pocket or purse (in my case, the diaper bag) to bring wherever you go. 

We charged it up for the recommended time and tried it out on each smartphone. It charges as fast as a wall charger and it lasts up to 55 charges so we will be good for a while! Very useful accessory to have if you or someone you know owns a smart phone.

Caseco offers other models of phone cases for different phones like the Flux and Lynx as well as car chargers and more online at www.Caseco.ca! Great gifts for the smartphone owner on your holiday shopping list!

  1. I will definitely check these out. I love how smooth they look too. We are advocates too, your phone is an investment. :P

  2. I need one of those charges stat! I was at an all-day event yesterday and struggled to find a plug all day. Love using my IPhone but the battery definitely needs a boost!

  3. I love the sleek look and I definitely need the rubber sides for grip. I'm a bit clumsy. The Powerbox Universal would make a great stocking stuffer!

  4. I'd love a heavy duty case. I just have a boring black case that is very simple and doesn't do much protecting.

  5. The power box is a game changer! Perfect to have in your emergency kit!

  6. I would gift this to my husband. I like the Shock Express feature!
