I’ve been a fan of Pitaka’s insanely thin yet protective Aramid cases since I first received one to try on my iPhone 7 Plus. I used them on every iPhone I owned until I switched to the Pixel 3 XL, when I was disappointed to learn that Pitaka wouldn’t have a case for my phone. When I moved to the 4 XL, there still wasn’t a case available, but that’s no longer true.
June 21st is Father’s Day. Let that sink in for a moment; we are already halfway through 2020. While it may seem like this has been the longest year ever, there are still six more months just waiting to spring their surprises on us — which is all the more reason to take a minute, slow down, and celebrate the fathers in our lives.
Due to the global pandemic, those of us who have been unexpectedly thrust into working from home have had to figure out how to get our work done while sheltering in place. We wanted to share some of the things that have helped us stay productive and more-or-less content since we began physically distancing ourselves from our loved ones and friends who live outside of our homes.
It should be no surprise that Pitaka makes both Judie’s and my smartphone cases of choice. The company also makes great chargers and, as the title of this review says, their new Pitaka Air Omni 6-in-1 Charging Solution is something special. It’s currently available for backing on Kickstarter; I have an early version and love it.
Maybe the thought of putting a thick, bulky case on your already large enough Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra makes you grimace. And let’s say you’ve also decided that a printed vinyl skin’s level of protection is only a half-step up from naked. If you’re looking for a balance between too little and too much protection, you’ll be glad to know that there is a Goldilocks Solution for your needs — the Pitaka Air Case.
At just .6mm thin, the Pitaka Air Case Collection lets you protect your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max without adding weight or bulk. That’s great if you prefer to use your iPhone unencumbered by a case but still want to protect it. Let’s take a look.
Pitaka makes some of the best smartphone cases available; I use their MagEZ Case daily (read our review) as well as the Pitaka MagEZ Mount QI car charger (read our review), and both are fantastic. Now I’m using the Pitaka MagEZ Juice 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Power Bank Dock. It’s a wireless desk charger and Qi-enabled portable external battery in one.
I recently reviewed the Pitaka MagCase for iPhone, the same model case as the one that protected my iPhone X for over a year. I couldn’t see getting an iPhone 11 and not having a MagCase on it; it’s great, but if you need extra protection, you might want to check it the highly-protective $49.99 Pitaka MagCase Pro.
I usually upgrade my iPhone every year but The iPhone X was an exception. I had it for a full two years. Most of that time it was protected in a Pitaka MagCase Judie had reviewed. When I had my new iPhone 11 on the way, I knew I needed to protect it with something similar; I ordered a MagCase from Pitaka.
Pitaka makes some of my favorite iPhone accessories and cases; of course, most of the accessories can be used by many other smartphones that have wireless charging. Let’s take a look at some of the new products Pitaka was showcasing at CES.
The Pitaka Aramid MagCase had been my case of choice for the last three iPhone versions as well as for the Samsung Note 8; it is the thinnest and lightest protective case I’ve ever tried. Days before I purchased my iPhone XS Max, I received all the new Pitaka cases for the iPhone XS, XR, and XS Max.
If you have a newer iPhone and Apple Watch combination that you use (and charge) daily, you’re going to want to check out the Pitaka MagDock. It’s a ready-to-travel all-in-one wireless charger and dock for both those items and more.
If you’re still throwing your keys and wallet on a countertop when you get home, you’re going to appreciate the Pitaka MagHive. Not only is it an attractive central location for you to keep the things you can’t leave home without, it’s an intelligent hub the whole family can use.
What’s cooler: a phone case made from silicone and plastic or one made from military grade bulletproof materials? The Pitaka MagCase is a sleek, beautiful, lightweight case that touts maximum performance. Starting at $47.99, the Pitaka MagCase is available for the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X as well as some Android phones.
I’ve found that the best way to make sure I don’t forget anything before I leave home is to have a central spot where I keep all the things I might need. Phone, keys, battery pack — all go in a bowl by the door. It’s low-tech, but it works. The Pitaka MagHive takes my strategy into the 21st century.
Shortly after purchasing a Samsung Galaxy Note8, I sent an email to Pitaka asking if they’d be coming out with a case for my shiny new phablet. The Pitaka Aramid case had quickly become my favorite super-thin iPhone 7+ case, and I really hoped they’d have something similar in store for the Note8. They do, it’s the Pitaka Aramid MagCase.
Minimalism is in, and one of the best places to start scaling back on all the crap you own (or carry) is in your own back pocket. Rather than carrying a wallet stuffed with bills, receipts, cards, and who knows what else, you could be carrying a PITAKA New, a magnetic modular Carbon Fiber Wallet.
It would be impossible for me to guess how many iPhone cases I’ve reviewed over the years, but I can count the number that have genuinely impressed me on one hand; the PITAKA Aramid Fiber iPhone 7 Case makes that list. It’s incredibly light and thin, and it provides minimalistic protection with no compromises.
