Test/Review: Aquapac PDA Case

[ 0 ] April 28, 2011 |

Going back a while, I put together a review of the Aquapac PDA case for the GBP Blog. You may remember it. That video and write-up were so well received, and subsequently pushed around the social media world so much, that I thought I’d make mention of them one more time – for those of you who might have missed them.

In a nutshell, here was my dilema…

Having the technology I use day-to-day is all well and good, but there comes a time when it needs a little helping hand in more extreme environments. For example, the audio recorder I use for the podcast, like so many electronic devices, doesn’t look too favourably on the rain; suffice it to say, this is an assumption and I don’t wish to test the theory – but for piece of mind, I set out to find some decent protection for the thing.

Enter Aquapac, who produce all manner of dependable covers and cases. I have been aware of these guys for many years, and originally took the opportunity to catch up with them at the Ordnance Survey Outdoors Show a year or so back. Jump forward a number of months and they suggested their 100% waterproof PDA Case for my particular requirements.

Here, then, is my short video so you can see and hear the test for yourself:

Several details are not mentioned in the video, as I wanted to keep it fairly brief, but for your reference:

  • This case will float in water, and is submersible to 15ft (5 metres)
  • It has an optically-clear rear panel, good enough to shoot photos/video through
  • You can use your PDA stylus as normal right through the case
  • A stylus holder is built-in
  • The product model reference/number is Small PDA Classic (344)
  • You can also check out more more from Aquapac on their Facebook page
