What is anodizing?
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that forms a protective coating of aluminium oxide on the surface of aluminium. The anodised layer protects the raw aluminium, transforming it into a hard, durable surface. During this process the aluminium can be dipped in a variety of dyes creating the bright, vibrant colours that you see on our cases.

What earphone/chargers fit the case?
We have designed the largest possible cut outs for the headphone
and charger points however due to the varying range of sizes of third
party connectors we cannot guarantee they will fit.

The anodised layer creates a harder and more durable surface than plain aluminium, however it can still can get scratched against hard sharp surfaces.
