Element is a company that went from rags to riches in just a short time. In 2007, Jeff Sasaki designed a case to protect his iPhone, and just a year later this brand was born. They designed another case for the newest iPhone in 2009, and created an equally innovative accessory for the first iPad in 2010. From building cases in a garage to now a full staff of designers, this Californian company continues to thrive as a manufacturer of quality Element Case cases and accessories for the Apple user community.
The brand currently offers three different Element iPad cases. “The Wood iPad case” ($90) is a back protector for the iPad2/new iPad3. The design consists of natural walnut wood veneer permanently bonded to a carbon fiber shell. The “Joule Original” ($80) and “Joule Chroma” ($100) are aluminum tablet stands for iPad1 or iPad2. These minimalist designs feature a magnetically attached tilt foot that provides three display angle positions. The chroma model stands out for its range of 6 available colors and plush ultra-suede lining.
Simple accessories with a high-end price may not exactly inspire a lot of consumers to quickly run out and buy Element tablet cases. But knowing these accessories are made of ultra-strong materials to last a lifetime certainly might.
