Shine on you crazy iPhone! The new glow-in-the-dark M-Edge Alter Ego Skin is an affordable solution to providing your iPhone 5 attractive protection.
The M-Edge Alter Ego Skin for iPhone 5 is available in a number of colors, but most notably in glow-in-the-dark lime or glow-in-the-dark sherbet (orange). Never again do you have to fumble around your pocketbook or dark room looking for your phone. As you could expect, the glow-in-the-dark option is very light in color and it gets more vibrant and brighter as the environment gets darker. If it’s exposed to a lot of light just prior, it can really glow.
The Alter Ego Skin is a simple silicon case that’s rubbery and very flexible. It pops right over iPhone 5 and offers an extremely durable grip with a repeating imprinted hexagon pattern. Hexagons are the reoccurring theme for the Alter Ego case; it’s built into all of the button overlays and case cutouts. The lock and volume button overlays work perfectly and are very easy to press. On the bottom of the case is three separated cutouts. We would have preferred one large cutout, but this is better for the Alter Ego’s structural design.
The Alter Ego provides decent protection. The jellyness should make it impact resistant. The front portion of the case adds a small bezel around iPhone’s screen, which is an essential feature for keeping iPhone’s face free of scratches. Lastly, the superior grip keeps the Alter Ego and iPhone from easily slipping out of your hand.
The Alter Ego Case for iPhone 5 is a simple case with a sleek body, sharp design, and best of all, it glows in the dark! If you don’t opt-in for glow-in-the-dark lime or sherbet you can Alter Ego in pink, red, aqua, cobalt, slate, or black. The glow-in-the-dark feature is fun; though it really needs a lot of light to get a great glow. The M-Edge Alter Ego Case for iPhone 5 costs just $19.99 from MEdgeStore.com.
