- Use your equipment normally in the case as sound and signal pass right through the material. Even the touchscreen works.
- The airtight seal means your equipment will float safely if you drop it in water.
- CAUTION! We recommend the case for surface use only. Not for submersion.
- Content not included in the delivery.
Warning – Sticky!
When the case is new you may find it difficult to slide your iPhone in and out of it. The stickiness does wear off with use, but it’s rather annoying. Sorry! We’re doing everything we can to sort this problem. In the meantime please Click here to download our Anti-Stickiness Insertion Device! Or just wrap a piece of paper around your equipment and insert in the pac. Then tear out the paper - and everything is okay!
Maximum size of equipment to fit in case:
The belt has a length of 115cm (45,3in)
What stops the water getting in?
The connectec electronics are tested to IPX6, which means as waterproof as you can get without actually immersing the bags underwater. Fire-hose proof! The testing: Protected against heavy seas - Water projected at all angles through a 12.5mm nozzle at a flow rate of 100 liters/min at a pressure of 100kN/m2 for 3 minutes from a distance of 3 meters. Floating on the surface is no problem, submersible for a very short time.
What keeps water, sand & dust out?
The patented Aquaclip® seals the case - with a simple twist of a couple of levers. It's been tested to the toughest international waterproofing standards. If you haven't seen one before, read our quick guide to the Aquaclip.
How have you improved this case recently?
2008 sees us going '100% PVC-Free'. Our new material (TPU) offers a number of advantages:
- It's softer and more malleable. Making it even easier to operate your PDA or Smartphone controls through the material.
- It'll perform much better if you want to take it somewhere really cold. It'll still be soft and malleable at -40º and below.
- It has a greater tensile strength, meaning it's even more difficult to tear or rip apart.
- We've added optically-clear LENZFLEX windows to the back making the Aquapac cameraphone-friendly.
Special Note: the use of Aquapac cases with Insulin Pumps
Aquapac have commissioned research by Imperial College London into the use of the 154 (Radio Microphone case) and 554 (Connected Electronics case) after receiving a large number of customer enquiries regarding their suitability for use with insulin pumps. Results show that, in some circumstances, insulin flow rate can be reduced by the case. In particular, low flow rates are impeded, and as such Aquapac can make no claim regarding the suitability of these cases with insulin pumps. Use of these cases for insulin pumps is entirely at the discretion of the user. Aquapac has been advised to recommend that users of Aquapac cases with insulin pumps regularly check their blood sugar levels.

The tests were conducted by Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine using a Roche Accu-Check Spirit insulin pump at a temperature of 20C at flow rates of 2U/hr and 10U/hr.
The amounts of insulin delivered over 60 minutes observed were as follows:
2U/hr not in case - 0.0131g (flow rate of 100%)
2U/hr in Aquapac 150 - 0.0106g (flow rate of 81%)
2U/hr in Aquapac 150 - 0.0056g (2nd test model)(flow rate of 42%)
2U/hr in Aquapac 550 - 0.0121g (flow rate of 92%)
10U/hr not in case - 0.0864g (flow rate of 100%)
10U/hr in Aquapac 150 - 0.0878g (flow rate of 100%)
10U/hr in Aquapac 550 - 0.0903g (flow rate of 100%)

What our customers say:
"Thank you again for everything. You have no idea how happy my son will be to go in the water on vacation."
Phyllis Powell-Hodgkins, USA
"I am a sound man for motion pictures and in fact I had used your products in the past on a film for which I was fortunate enough to receive an Academy Award (Oscar) as well as a BAFTA nomination. The film was TITANIC and the Aquapacs were modified to waterproof wireless microphone transmitters. They were one of my secret weapons for getting the sound on that film. Great product."
