The Incipio Press Recap covers the latest reviews of Incipio products from the industry’s top tech critics. Making headlines this week is the offGRID EXPRESS iPhone 6 Battery Case, the DualPro protective iPhone 6 Plus Case and more. Get all the news below.
“The offGRID EXPRESS is the best iPhone 6 battery case on the market. Its $79 price is right in the middle of the market, making it a good value play as well. Rating: five stars out of five.”
“With the Incipio offGRID Express, the iPhone 6 battery case market finally has a winner. It’s a market which tends to be hit and miss because vendors have to carefully balance wedging an extra battery into a case against making the iPhone impractically bulky, and in recent years have also had to deal with the headphone port being on the bottom next to where the iPhone plugs into the case. But the offGRID Express manages to thread the needle on both counts.”

“I’m not normally one for phone cases, as evidenced by the cracked iPhone 4 I toted around for over three years. But I recently purchased a new 6 and figured I might as well sacrifice some slimness for a little extra protection, mainly because insurance is for suckers. Well, while attempting an ill-advised Frogger maneuver through traffic on a major Brooklyn avenue this weekend, the unthinkable happened. I looked back to see my phone flying in slow motion from my pocket directly into the path of both tires of a midsize SUV. Retrieved without a scratch to be seen, and Incipio just found themselves a lifetime user. Now if they would just start making body suits… so long, health insurance.”
“The overall design of the OffGRID Express has improved over previous models. The biggest improvements are the buttons that cover up the power button and volume buttons. They have a nice chrome finish and are a lot easier to press down. They actually feel way more natural to press down.”
“As for how the battery performs on the OffGRID Express, its 3,000mAh capacity makes it one of the highest-capacity iPhone 6 cases available, with only Tylt’s Energi case beating it out with a 3,200mAh capacity and the Mophie Juice Pack Plus cramming in 3,300mAh for $120. Still, if you’re looking for a high-capacity option, Incipio is a brand to consider.”
“In the end, $80 for the OffGRID Express is a great price…..if you’re looking to spend as little money as possible, the $80 for the OffGRID Express is a good way to go.”
“Incipio’s Performance Armband is a no-frills offering, made of heat-sealed, breathable and water-resistant neoprene. It’s outfitted with a convenient side pocket for storing keys and cards, and is one of the few armbands on our list that’s also available for older iPhone 4 models. It’s lightweight and comfortable as well, and features reflective accents that go hand-in-hand with the vibrant choice of available colors, including neon blue, coral, lime, and hot pink.”
The translucent material this case is made of resits tearing and stretching, all without adding much bulk to your iPhone. Its soft surface is easy to grip.”
“If you don’t want to cover your iPhone but want to protect it (and add a splash of color) you or your Valentine might like the Octane Case by Incipio. It does a great job of giving you sleek protection without covering your iPhone. Finished with a frosted transparent back and contrasting colorful bumper, the Octane™ Case takes protection to the next level.”
“When it comes to power on the go, we’re huge fans of Incipio’s offGRID series. These battery packs are built to last and offer up to 8000mAh of backup power with many options featuring dual charging capabilities. For even more power plus the ability to charge using only the sun’s natural energy, you might consider the 20,000mAh ZeroLemon SolarJuice.”
“This dual layer offering is our pick of Incipio’s bunch. There’s a shock resistant inner core in black, which is covered by a brushed aluminum outer shell in silver or black. This case can handle bumps and knocks, and it will keep your phone pristine. The cut-outs are precise, so there’s no problem operating your HTC One M8 with the case on. The DualPro Shine strikes a good balance between protection and style, your phone won’t be embarrassed to be seen wearing this.”
“Take control of every bulb in your home with the Incipio® DIRECT Wireless Smart LampAdapter. Utilizing your iPhone, you can remotely take control of your devices at home or on-the-go. Toggle specific bulbs or an entire home with integrated Siri voice commands for effortless accessibility and next-level wireless power management.”
“If you need a folio-style case, one option we like for the S5 is Incipio’s PlexFolio case. This case has a hard shell, with a soft microsuede front cover to protect against scratches. This is a versatile case with some nice added functionality.”
