If You’ve Just Bought A New Smartphone, Check This Case Out

If you’ve just spent some big bucks on a brand new smartphone, you’re gonna want to protect it. Sure, you can spend $10 on eBay and get something that will last all of five minutes, but why bother? Go big or go home, right? You need EFM case armor. 

Using D30 impact protection technology, these cases are designed to withstand much more than the usual hip-height drop. Manufactured from high-grade TPU integrated with D3O®, an impact protection material that has been tried and tested to provide superior impact resistance even in extreme conditions.

The outcome? A stylish case that offers sleek, slimline device protection and resists tearing and scratching while maintaining its form, no matter where you take it. But the real trick is in how the D30 tech works.

In standard conditions, the molecules in a non-Newtonian fluid flow freely allowing the material to remain soft and flexible. On impact, they lock together for milliseconds dissipating the impact energy and reducing the force transmitted, but then instantly return to their flexible state..

The raw material is strain rate sensitive which means the stronger the impact, the more the molecules react, and the better the protection. D3O manufactures this raw substance into practical functioning foam and non-foam materials.

This chart shows how little force is transmitted through the case when each phone is dropped from 1 meter up. This involves dropping the phone with the case on from a height of 1m, then measuring the amount of impact force produced when the case hits the bottom. The lower the case’s impact force, the higher its impact resistance, which also means a higher impact rating.


Pretty impressive, no? Essentially, the lower the transmitted force, the less risk your precious phone is to smashing into a billion pieces. And to be honest, I’d rather not risk that.
