Reach79 cases provide consumers with superior performance from their mobile phones, including faster data speeds, greater coverage and extended battery life
ENCINITAS, CALIFORNIA, JANUARY 5, 2015 — Today, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, a new category of smartphone case is born. Introducing Reach79, the first-ever line of smartphone cases designed to make your mobile device work better, faster, and stronger. The Reach79 case can improve a device’s signal strength up to 2X, optimizing performance and resulting in better communications.
The new Reach79 Case—available today—will be shown for the first time at tonight’s Pepcom Digital Experience! media event, which previews many of the new products debuting at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
“We all want to get the most from our smartphones, and that’s exactly what Reach79 cases were designed to do,” said David Vigil, CEO, Antenna79. “Powered by patented antenna technology, Reach79 cases are the first performance-enhancing smartphone cases designed for speed. Each case is embedded with a micro-thin, gold-plated antenna that works to increase your smartphone’s signal strength so your phone can do more for you.”
The antenna technology inside each case is engineered to automatically pair through passive coupling with the antennas within a smartphone. This combined antenna system creates superior signal reception and transmission which enables the device to work more efficiently.
Reach79 cases have been tested at CETECOM, a CTIA accredited test facility, and verified to improve a phone’s signal strength by an average of 1.6X, with peak performance of over 2X. While user experience may vary depending on device, carrier, and location, consumers can expect to see several benefits from Reach79, including:
- Speed: A stronger signal enables faster data speeds for browsing the web, streaming music, making video calls, managing emails, and more.
- Expanded coverage: With a stronger signal, users can stay connected farther from a cell tower—and greater range can decrease dropped calls and increase connectivity.
- Increased battery life: With Reach79, smartphones don’t have to work as hard to reach the tower, which can reduce the strain on the battery. More efficient performance equals longer battery life.
- Protection: Weighing just 1.27 ounces, Reach79 cases still offer durability and protection against drops up to 6.6 feet.
