Ages back I got the Aquapac iPod Protectatron in for test, it’s still going strong in regular use and is still 100% waterproof. Last year Joycee got the new Aquapac Micro Whanganui in to test for her iPhone as I didn’t have a smartphone at the time. Humph.
Joycee spends all her time outdoors, working in woodlands, digging, cutting, carving, making fires, installing artworks or in school grounds building willow domes or painting murals while trying to keep kids minds off the horrors of the urban environment outside the gates. The Micro Whanganui was an instant hit and has seen some tough times over the past few months, her phone is her office while she’s standing in the rain and I’m glad she never had to said “Well, you told me my phone would be okay”. Apple updates are the biggest enemy of her phone, not moisture.
The Micro Whanganui is different to my old model, a different material, tackier and so less likely to be dropped which I quite like. The lever locking system is the same, a simple 90deg movement of each lever and you’re done. But, what do I know, Joycee says…
All in all, good wee bits of kit that really do last well, and having lost a phone to a wet weekend in the hills there’s nothing wrong with taking precautions with expensive to replace pieces of electronica.
