Mobile phones and snow aren’t exactly natural partners. That’s why Nokia and Burton have joined forces to combine their considerable mobile phone and mountain expertise and offer discerning snowboarders the perfect solution this winter: the Nokia x Burton Insulator Case (roughly $25 to 32).

It’s a simple concept – layering for your handset. In the same way that riders themselves layer up when the mercury drops, wrapping your phone in cosy layers of soft fur-lining and 3M-Thinsulate will help protect it from the cold and snow. And this is no mere PR fluff: according to tests carried out by our Nokia boffins, doing so will help extend your phone’s battery life by up to 50% in cold or sub zero temperatures, and means your toasty, protected phone will work as well as it does at sea level.

Each Insulator Case also has a leash so you don’t drop the lot while getting on and off the chair lift, and is also roomy enough to store cards, cash and keys, so savvy riders will be able to use it down in resort as well as at the top of their next powder line. ❚ Flattr this
