This month at Pepcom’s Holiday Spectacular, Catalyst, a manufacturer of protective cases for smartphones and electronic devices, introduced the Total Protection Case for the iPhone 14, 14 Pro, 14 Plus and 14 Pro Max at Pepcom Holiday Spectacular. The new cases lineup is 100% waterproof cases and are now available on pre-order that will ship in time for the Holidays.
Additionally, during the Pepcom event, Catalyst confirms the Waterproof and Total Protection cases for the AirPods Pro (1st generation) are compatible with the new AirPods Pro (2nd generation) models. Catalyst also announced the Active Defense & Total Protection cases for the Apple Watch Series 7 are compatible with the new Apple Watch Series 8 models and cases for the Apple Watch SE/6/5/4 are compatible with the latest Apple Watch SE design.
The Catalyst Total Protection Case for the iPhone 14 Series seals out water, dust, dirt and is cleanable with many EPA approved disinfectants. Designed to be 5X more waterproof than the leading competitor (IP68 – 10m/33ft), and to survive drops of up to 65% higher than the leading competitor (MIL-STD-810G – 2m/6.6ft), the case perfectly fits the device so that everything is fully functional.
Face ID works and the built-in screen protector lies flat and does not bubble up, ensuring the touch screen is highly responsive. No sound is lost, the case works with 5G networks, and is optimized for noise cancellation using patented technology so that the microphone works clearly without interference from background noise, making it great for video/ audio calls or playing music. The clear camera lens ensures high quality photographs can be taken, and users won’t drop the case accidentally because it comes with a complimentary lanyard that works with the Catalyst anti-drop attachment system.
As always, the durable, clear case showcases the iPhone, stays fingerprint-free, features highly responsive tactile buttons, a flexible charge port plug and its signature patented rotating mute switch. The cases will also feature Catalyst’s commitment to sustainability, as they move to sustainable packaging, which is made of 100% responsibly sourced paper products, that can be 100% recycled.
Pricing Starts at $89.99 and collection can be found here.
The Total Protection Case for AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) is 66X more waterproof (IP68 – 100m/330ft) and survives drops 2.5X higher than the leading competitor (MIL-STD-810G – 3m/10ft). Durable one-piece design made with premium materials, so the sturdy secure latch seals perfectly closed to prevent dust and water from getting inside and stays closed on drops and impacts.
The case can be easily washed with soap and water and disinfected using many EPA approved disinfectants since the outer shell is made of tough polycarbonate. This also means your MagSafe Charging Case for AirPods Pro (2nd generation) will be able to withstand soaps, shampoos, conditioners, drops, impacts and even the swimming pool that could affect the water-resistant seals and acoustic membranes of the device.
The impact-absorbing silicone interior keeps the charging case securely in place, protecting it from bumps and scratches. The precise fit ensures the case top is securely attached with no play in the hinge and a waterproof plug seals out water and debris from the charge port. Owing to the high-level of workmanship, the battery indicator of the charging case can be seen through the ‘porthole’ of outer shell and can be charged wirelessly. This case comes with a detachable premium carabiner that can easily hook on to a belt, bag, or purse.
They retail starting at $49.99 and can be ordered here.
After extensive testing, Catalyst has determined the existing cases designed for the Apple Watch Series 7 and SE are fully compatible in both form and function with the Apple Watch Series 8 and SE 2022. Both feature Catalyst’s unique case design that wraps around the device to secure it and comes with a flexible soft hypoallergenic and breathable silicone sport band, which will stay fully secure on impact. Both cases can now be paired with Catalyst’s Screen Protector for Apple Watch for extra protection against scratches to the screen.
The Active Defense cases are designed to survive drops 2.5X higher than military standard (MIL-STD-810G – 3m/10ft) and feature a raised bezel around the screen to protect the watch from getting beat up, withstanding bumps, dings, and scratches.
The Total Protection cases are 2X more waterproof (IP68 -100m/330ft) than the water-resistance rating of the Apple Watch and the cases are washable with soap and water and disinfectable with many EPA-approved disinfectants. You can even shower with your Apple Watch as the Total Protection Case can withstand soaps, shampoos, conditioners, bumps and impacts that could affect the water-resistant seals and acoustic membranes of the device. The case is made with rugged, shock-resistant and scratch-proof material designed to survive drops of up to MIL-STD-810G – 2m/6.6ft.
Retails starting at $74.99 and can be purchased here.
