Hi, I'm Dave Johnson, I'm the editor of eHow's tech channel, and today let's unbox an SLXtreme. So what I've got here is the SLXtreme from Snow Lizard. This is one of those kick starter success stories. It's a ruggedize case for the iPhone and it is perfect for people that are super outdoorsy. It's very rugged, you can throw it off a mountain, it will survive. It's solar powered so it dramatically extends the battery run time on your iPhone. It's waterproof. I wouldn't take it scuba diving, but you can take it in a kayak or possibly even snorkling. And a bunch of really interesting features. So let's open this guy up. Kind of unassuming packaging. Oh by the way it has a little window there so you can see it in the store if you want. Pull this off and this is the actual SLXtreme. It comes in a number of colors. I got the orange one here. And then underneath the little plastic bed for it, you've got a couple of things like a strap and a quick start guide. But that's everything in the box. So here's how to use this thing. It's got a latch on the side so you just pop that and it opens up and you can take your iPhone. It has to be not the iPhone 5. It works with the 3GS, the 4, the 4S, but the 5 is not going to fit in here. Just kind of stick it in until it catches the port at the bottom. Close it. And it's latched. And it might not feel like it's going to withstand going underwater, but honestly, that is super protected. And if you want to, you could unscrew the bottom here. You can use your thumb or you can use a screwdriver and when you get it open, there's a port right there for connecting it via USB to charge it up and sort of thing. When you close it back up, just do it hand tight. If you over tighten it, you can actually break the seal and then it won't be waterproof anymore. But once you're up and running, it works just like you would normally expect your iPhone to work. So there's a power button up on the top. And the touch screen still works so you can do all the things you would normally do with your iPhone. That is your home button right there. So I went to the search screen when I tapped it. And there are volume controls right there as well. So you pretty much have access to everything you would normally have access to even if you're five feet underwater. And the solar panels are right here. Oh I should also mention this port right here is the camera. You can actually still take pictures with the camera. And on the back you have the solar cell. Just go ahead and leave that in the sun somewhere and it will charge up. There are a bunch of lights right here if you press this button, you'll get in this case I have two blue lights that indicates that the battery in the case is about half charged. So just leave it out and it will charge up and it will give you a huge amount of run time. So for anybody that's super outdoorsy, the SLXtreme is a really high tech super cool way to take your phone anywhere you're going to go.
