Product Description

Aquapac waterproof iPod case - 518 small - rear view
rear view

Fits iPod, iPod Touch, MP3 players and phones up to iPhone 4 size

  • The headphone jack means you can plug in your phones and listen to your music when you’re on the bike or out on the water
  • You can use your own earbuds – or best of all get a pair of our 100% Waterproof Headphones!
  • It comes with an armband as well as a lanyard, so you can either hang it round your neck or wear it on your arm. Both are detachable.
  • You’ll be able to talk and hear through the case without a problem, get great photos and video through the LENZFLEX window, and your touchscreen will work normally too
  • It’s not just 100% waterproof – it’ll protect your phone from dust, dirt and sand too
  • You won’t necessarily have to buy a new one when you upgrade your phone, because it’s a generic rather than a form-fit case (unlike a hard case, it’s not tailored to a specific device).

Is this the right size for my phone?

  • This case is a perfect fit for the iPod Classic and iPod Touch
  • If you do have a bumper case on your cellphone and want to keep it on when it’s in the Aquapac you may need a wider case.

This is the maximum size of device that will fit:

What else do I need to know?

  • The headphone jack is a standard audio-only jack which means that you can listen to music but not have phone conversations using your earphones, the mic won’t work.
  • Some smartphones can be very sticky. If your phone is shiny and sticky, pinch the corner of the case and jiggle it to get your phone in and out.
  • Some phones will float in this case and some won’t – make sure you test yours in a basin before you launch it into the sea!
  • Capacitive touchscreens don’t work underwater, the water breaks the circuit. But you can use the volume buttons to operate your camera underwater.
  • Fingerprint recognition such as Apple’s Touch ID won’t work through the Aquapac – you will have to enter your passcode.
  • Some phones have rather sharp edges. We recommend use of a thin bumper case which will protect both phone and case.

Additional Information

Care Instructions

Warning
Our warranty covers this Aquapac only, and not any items you may put inside it. We recommend that you insure the contents separately.

Waterproofness
Our range has been independently tested to international waterproofing standards. However, the waterproofness of your Aquapac depends on your closing and opening it carefully, and on it not being damaged either before or during use. Please follow all instructions carefully.

Before Every Use
Seal something worthless inside, then submerge in a basin to check the waterproofness.

Closing the Case
Make sure that all parts are properly attached. Wipe away any grit or sand, which could hamper the seal. Always turn the levers as far as they will go. They should lock smoothly, if not there may be something impeding the seal.

Opening the Case
Never open your Aquapac in or under water. In order to stop any water getting in when you are opening it, first shake off any water then dry with a towel. Hold the case with the opening at the bottom as you open it.

Ongoing Care
Our materials are strong but can still be punctured. Avoid sharp or abrasive objects and protect from impacts. After regular contact with chlorinated or salt water, or with sun creams, wash in soapy water and then rinse with fresh water. Do not use bleach, alcohol or proprietary cleaners.

Materials
Aquapacs are made from a variety of materials, mostly plastics which make them rustproof. These include TPU, ABS, nylon and polypropylene.

Extreme Temperatures
Although the case material has been UV-stabilized – which means that the plastic shouldn’t be discoloured or broken down by sunlight – the Aquapac won’t protect anything inside it from heat or sunlight. The soft case material is functional and flexible in air temperatures -40ºC to +60ºC (-40ºF to +140ºF), and water temperatures up to +40ºC (+100ºF).

Humidity and Condensation
In humid climates there will be moisture in the air sealed inside the case. Desiccant sachets will absorb the moisture, keeping the contents completely dry. We recommend use of desiccant sachets in all Aquapacs in humid climates. You can purchase spare sachets – see Accessories.

Warning
This is not a toy. It may contain small parts which may be a choking hazard to children under 3. Keep small parts away from children.

Tips for Taking Good Photographs
If you follow a few guidelines there’s no reason why anyone should notice that your photos were taken through a case. It’s a bit like taking a photograph through your window at home. First of all the window needs to be as clean as possible. Even with a clean window you may notice some reflection, but the closer you hold the camera lens to the window, the less the reflection. Similarly our cases give best results with the lens window tight against the camera lens. Try to avoid flash photography but if you do need to use the flash, make sure that the case is tight over the flash so the light doesn’t reflect back into the lens.

Underwater Photography
It takes a bit of practice – and a little luck – to get really good underwater photos. Please don’t think that every shot you take is going to make the cover of SportDiver magazine! You need strong sunshine and clear water. The middle of the day is best, when the sun’s at its highest. Best results will be just below the surface. Light disappears quickly as you go deeper, as do colours (one of the advantages of digital cameras is that you can retouch your photos afterwards to replace colours lost underwater). Flash rarely works underwater. Not because of the Aquapac, but because the flash tends to reflect off particles in the water itself. Even clean water is full of micro-organisms and other particles. The less water between you and your subject, the less difference this will make and therefore the clearer your shots are likely to be. Wide lens and close up is the secret.

Reviews

  1. :

    Ideal for those long marathon runs. This 100% waterproof armband case will keep your phone dry when you run. Different sizes available to fit all phones.

  2. :

    I ordered the waterproof MP3/smartphone case through work for use in the field. The case is great and enables me to enter my data as I’m working, upload it and have it ready for when I get back to the office.

  3. :

    I had an Aquapac a couple of years ago for my MP3 player and it was ace. I used it on the Devizes to Westminster canoe race a couple of times.
