    Hi guys,

    I've been wondering if you know some good retailers for buying casings in the US? My current one is too scratched and I would love a new one, but can't find anywhere good enough to get me a new one.

    I don't have any set budget and would buy basically anything that appeals to me. Please help,

    Thanks

    If you can't find a decent retailer, try looking at the ones online. Try eBay, they would most likely have some decent casings. Try and stay away from the people selling from Hong Kong etc. as I have had bad experiences purchasing "decent" stuff from there.

    Always try E-bay for phone accessories.They have a wide range of stuff available over there and you could very well get a nice selection and what more..you could at a cheaper rate too.

    I tried eBay but all I found was hundreds of people selling the same thing again and again. Their designs weren't good anyways.

    And guess what, most are selling from Hong Kong, etc. other places, somewhere I'm really not keen to buy from.

    Still, thanks for the help guys, I guess I'll keep searching eBay daily.

    Incase make awesome cases for the Apple. I recently nabbed the 3G power slider, it makes the phone really fat but my phone will last 3 days without a charge.

    3 days without a charge? Wow that is awesome. Can you give me a link?

    Also, how can it increase the battery life? I mean how can a case give boost to battery life? Does it have a, what should I say, kind of a small battery in itself? Or you're talking only about the usage scenario?

    Let me know. I'm a bit careful about my iPhone lol.

    Yep ebay is the place for getting what you need and want at a much lower price than any retail outlet. I think that is works like the old nokia batteries did, they were much bigger but allowed you to go more days with out the charge. That is always a plus I look for and would not care much about size.

    Yeah, but the iPhone battery is not replaceable, isn't it? Then how can a case increase battery life?

    The old nokia batteries did pack quite a punch, that is quite evident as the BL - 5C batteries are still used in smartphones, the same BL-5C which used to power the measely 2300 Radio from Nokia!

    Incase: A better experience through good design.

    it is called the 3g power slider, here are some of its features:

    • Integrated rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery more than doubles the battery life of iPhone 3G
    • Optimized power management system provides continuous charge to iPhone 3G internal battery
    • 5 light LED battery status indicator
    • Charge and sync without removing iPhone 3G from case using the custom USB cable provided
    • Advanced lithium-ion polymer battery cell technology prevents overcharging and short circuiting and provides protection from extreme temperature

    I've heard it's excellent, although expensive.
