LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Today at CES 2018, Speck announced Presidio MOUNT, a protective case designed to work with Scosche® magnetic mounts. Presidio® MOUNT was made in partnership with Scosche, the leader in mobile device magnetic mounts, and designed to work specifically with Scosche’s award-winning MagicMount™ family of products to create a seamless solution for using your device hands-free.
Traditionally, magnetic phone mounts require the user to adhere metal plates to their phone, install the plates between their phone and case or apply the plate directly to the back of their case. Presidio MOUNT offers a welcome alternative with two steel plates strategically positioned and embedded between the case’s two layers of protection. This eliminates the need for the user to install metal plates and ensures the phone is securely mounted. Because they are embedded, the metal plates aren’t visible and won’t blemish the device, and they are pre-installed at the optimal position to prevent wireless charging interference.
Presidio MOUNT offers two-layer protection to prevent damage from everyday drops, up to 10 feet. The inner layer is made of IMPACTIUM™, a dynamic rubber that absorbs and disperses shock on impact. The IMPACTIUM rubber is formed into ridges on the inside perimeter of the case to create the IMPACTUM Shock Barrier. When dropped, these ridges compress on impact to absorb and disperse shock, delivering superior protection. The exterior of Presidio MOUNT is a polycarbonate shell that also disperses shock to protect the phone.
Presidio MOUNT works with Scosche’s magnetic, cradle-free MagicMount family of mounts, which securely hold your device while driving, working at your desk, or anywhere else you need a hands-free experience.
Presidio MOUNT is made to fit iPhone X, iPhone 8/7/6s/6 and iPhone 8 Plus/7 Plus/6s Plus/6 Plus and is compatible with all Scosche MagicMount systems. It will be available in February 2018. Presidio MOUNT costs $44.95 for the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, and $49.95 for iPhone 8 Plus on speckproducts.com.
Presidio MOUNT will be on display at CES Unveiled, Pepcom and in the Scosche booth #31116 in the LVCC South Hall 3.
