Earlier today we reported on OtterBox’s new line of Resurgence battery cases, but that’s not the only thing that the American phone accessories company announced today. OtterBox have unveiled Alpha Glass, a new series of tempered glass screen protectors. The initial release covers the Galaxy S5, iPhone 5, 5S and 5C, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see screen protectors for the iPhone 6 and other popular smartphones soon afterwards. Let’s take a closer look at what OtterBox have revealed so far.
Scratch and shatter protection
The primary purpose of any screen protector is to prevent damage to your phone’s screen. Of course, the Alpha Glass series provides just that. A thin layer of tempered glass covers the screen below, preventing any scratches or abrasions from damaging the display. The Alpha Glass screen protector also includes an anti-shatter film, ensuring that even if the glass breaks, it remains in a single inert piece to be safely removed.
Hardly noticeable once installed
OtterBox have delivered one of the thinnest tempered glass screen protectors on the market, with tiny proportions that are barely noticeable. With Alpha Glass installed, your phone also retains its original touch screen sensitivity, brightness and clarity. Even installation is a cinch, as the package comes with everything you need to install the screen protector cleanly and without bubbles. You don’t have to worry about a thing.

The OtterBox Alpha Glass screen protectors are coming soon to Mobile Fun. For more information–including live pricing and availability data–please visit the product pages listed below.

OtterBox have announced a new case for the iPhone 5 and 5S called the Resurgence. The Resurgence provides both military-standard drop protection and an integrated battery pack. That means you’ll get more than double the battery life while keeping your phone safe – not a bad combination!
Make your iPhone 5S last longer
The iPhone 5S comes with a 1560mAh internal battery, usually good for a day or two of moderate use. The OtterBox Resurgence adds another 2000mAh of battery power, more than doubling your iPhone’s total battery life to three or even four days.
That means your phone can endure more than 22 hours of web browsing, 24 hours of videos or even 24 hours of talk time… before it needs to be recharged.
The Resurgence battery case is simple to use, too, thanks to an easy-to-read battery indicator on the front of the case and systems which prevent over-charging.
Protect your iPhone 5S from drops and scratches
Of course, having a long-lasting iPhone 5S isn’t just about battery life. You also want your phone to survive the rigours of daily life, from minor scratches to more serious drops, knocks and falls. Thankfully the OtterBox Resurgence is well equipped to handle these challenges as well.
The two-piece OtterBox design provides comprehensive protection, with full coverage of your phone to prevent scratches and scrapes. The phone is also highly rated for drop protection, and has been certified with a MIL STD 810G rating.
Keep your iPhone 5S looking good
The OtterBox Resurgence belies its broad feature set with a surprisingly thin and light body. The case is among the least bulky battery cases on the market for the iPhone 5S. The Resurgence is available in two colours from Mobile Fun, black and white glacier.

OtterBox have announced a new line of cases and accessories under the Agility System brand. The idea is that you buy a slim case called the Shell, and then you can get a range of larger cases and accessories which magnetically locks to the Shell. These could add more protection, media stands and other functionality. So far OtterBox have announced accessories for the iPad Air and iPad Mini 2. Let’s take a closer look at what OtterBox has been planning!
This is where it starts: the Shell Case
The first thing you’ll need is the OtterBox Agility System Shell Case. This light case clips around your iPad Air or iPad Mini, protecting it from light knocks and scratches. At the back, you’ll find the Agility mount, which allows the case to attach to the ecosystem of Agility System cases and accessories through a combination of magnets and black magic (OK, that second part might not be true).
Now add a case of your choice
OtterBox are well known for offering high protection cases that still look good, and that’s exactly what you’ll find on offer here with the new Agility System cases. There are three to choose from – a Folio Case, a Portfolio Case and a Deluxe Folio Case. Each has a distinct look, adds plenty of protection and many offer internal pockets and media stands as well.
Or a helpful stand
The Agility System range also includes some stands, helping your iPad stay easily accessible. The Dock is a cleverly designed desk stand that keeps your iPad hovering above your desk in the air, while the Wall Mount is brilliant for keeping an iPad in your kitchen for mess-free cooking instructions.
The OtterBox Agility System is coming soon to Mobile Fun. Visit our product pages linked above for the iPad Air or iPad Mini 2 to learn more, and keep an eye out as these new accessories arrive on our shelves!

Want to protect your iPhone and double your battery life? Pick up the Otterbox Resurgence Power Case and you’ll do just that. Let’s take a closer look at this new iPhone 5S case that’s coming soon to Mobile Fun.
Battery life for days
The biggest feature of the Otterbox Resurgence is its integrated 2,000mAh battery. That’s pretty hefty compared to the iPhone 5S’s internal battery, which is only 1560mAh. That means you’ll be more than doubling your battery life; if you normally get through one day, you’ll have two. If you can stretch to two already, then three or four should be possible with this case.
The extra battery life is perfect for emergencies, long nights out and weekends away. It’s easy to use too, with an LED indicator showing you the current amount of power stored in the case at any time. The Resurgence is smart too, automatically disengaging when your iPhone 5S becomes fully charged to conserve power and prevent overheating.
Ultimate Otterbox protection
Otterbox are well known for producing some of the best protective cases around, and the Resurgence is no different. The sleek two piece design includes military-grade drop protection, ensuring your iPhone remains in full working order even after a tumble. The case is scratch-proof too, and will help your iPhone 5S look good for way longer.
The Resurgence is easy to install and remove, allowing you to take out your iPhone easily whenever you don’t need the extra battery life or protection. Once inside, the case allows you to retain easy access to all buttons and features, letting you use your iPhone 5S just as you did before.
The Otterbox Resurgence is a strong iPhone 5S case that can more than double your battery life. It’s coming soon to Mobile Fun, so visit the product page below to place your pre-order or view more information:

Otterbox is one of the biggest names in the booming mobile accessories industry, and their Defender series of cases is probably their best known product. Today, I’m going to show you the Defender for the Kindle Fire HD 2013.
The case has a unique three-layer design: a strong polycarbonate shell that protects against impacts, a silicone skin wrapped outside for scratch protection, and a thermal-formed sheet that protects the screen from dinks and scratches. Each of the first two layers also include cutouts and covers for each port, button and feature, ensuring that these areas are protected day-to-day but can easily be accessed when necessary. Through the combination of these three layers, you’ll be able to count on incredible protection for your Kindle Fire that’ll prevent damage from everyday rough-and-tumble for years to come.
The Defender is available in three colours – Black, Blue Sky and Papaya Pink. For more information and pictures of each, check out the product pages linked below!
The Defender for the Kindle Fire HD 2013 is coming soon to Mobile Fun, with prices already announced (see the product pages above) and release dates yet to come.
