First iPhone 4? $300 with absurd contract. Second iPhone 4? Take out a second mortgage and be prepared to pony up at least $650 if you don’t get a friendly Genius and you don’t have a friend with back of a truck access. When compared with that kind of expense, spending $100 on a case that will prevent those kind of needless expenditures doesn’t seem all that crazy. Element’s new case, the Vapor Comp, is all that and more. The CNC machined aluminum frame is engineered to accommodate all manner of aftermarket peripherals, audio connectors and unforeseen interactions with the bar floor.
