iSkin’s Claro GearCare Combo Is An iPhone Case With Accident Insurance


Q) What’s safer than keeping your iPhone in a soft case to protect against unexpected falls and impacts? A) a soft case that just happens to give you accidental damage insurance.

That’s the neat concept behind iSkin’s new Claro GearCare combo, which combines the clarity of a hard plastic case, the protection of a soft-gel case and the security of, well, a good warranty service — thanks to an included GearCare Accidental Damage Warranty Service.

The warranty is packaged along with the case and offers up to five repairs (or a single replacement if necessary) should your iPhone become accidentally damaged while being protected by the Claro. Repairs cover screen damage, internal sensors and circuit damage, as well as button or other system failure issues that may be the result of an accidental drops.

Currently available in a clear “color” to preserve the pristine look of your iPhone, iSkin plans to release the Claro in transparent Diva Pink and Electric Blue later this year.

Designed to fit the iPhone 5 and 5s, the Claro GearCare combo sells for $34.99. For those just wanting the case, it can be bought minus warranty add-on for $24.99.
