Spring is coming and folks will be hitting the beaches during Spring Break. Then summer rolls around and many, many will stay on the beach all day. But, what do you do with your phone or tablet while on the beach? When I was in Miami last year, I zipped my phone up in ziplock bag. It wasn’t pretty, and it was pretty hard to use like that. And depending on the bag brand, it might still let in some moisture and sand. 🙂
No, you do not want to get your gadgets wet, nor do you want to get them full of sand. I do not condone using expensive gadgets on the beach, however you do want to make sure that your phone is nearby in case of emergency. And some may want to use their iPad, Nook, or Kindle for reading while laying on the beach. I saw one girl using her Kindle in a pool, WITHOUT a Drycase!
Drycase to the rescue. Drycase allows you to safely have your devices near water without worry of them getting ruined.
What is Drycase?
From the site: The DryCASE is a flexible, crystal clear waterproof bag that allows complete use of your phone or camera while keeping it dry and clean. Simply pump out all the air with the easy to use hand pump and the bag will vacuum seal around the contents and become completely waterproof. The air tight seal guarantees that the contents of the bag will stay dry even when submerged underwater. Every DryCASE comes with our extreme activity arm band for water sports, and is crystal clear so pictures can be taken through it while using the other side.
How it Works
1.) Slide in your device – Twist the clasps outward to open the DryCASE, and then simply slide in the device that you would like to protect.
2.) Lock the closure shut – Twist the clasps inward to close and lock the DryCASE. Position your device how you would like to use it inside the DryCASE. When you remove the air creating a vacuum it will secure the device in place.
3.) Pump out all the air – Simply squeeze the pump until you have removed all the air and can’t pump it any more. After you have removed all the air the DryCASE should be tightly sealed around the contents inside and the pump should be completely flat. You can now remove the hand pump and place the safety cap on.
Voila! You now have an airtight, watertight seal.
Think about all trips to the beach, water park, boat, rides, or amusement park. I know more than one friend that ruined their phones having them in their pockets while riding something like the big water rafting ride at Six Flags. Dumb? Why yes… yes it was. 🙂
At least if you had your phone in the Drycase for the full duration you would not have to worry about it getting wet at all.
Drycase is available for $39.99 for the smartphone version and $59.99 for the tablet version.
