KLOQE's Aluminum iPhone Case Allows iPhone 5 to Outlive New iPhone 6

The First All-Aluminum iPhone Case That Won't Affect a Phone's Reception Adds Only Four Millimeters to the Height and Width of the Phone

PLYMOUTH, MI--(Marketwired - Nov 26, 2014) -  KLOQE is a full body, all-aluminum iPhone case that mimics the look and feel of the bare, minimalist iPhone. The case's sleek, lightweight design adds only four millimeters to the height and width of the phone, making it a virtually unnoticeable protective shell. This patent-pending design also makes it the only all-aluminum iPhone case that does not affect cell phone reception.

KLOQE was invented by 19-year-old Sergio Troiani who was inspired to design a new case because he loved the elegance of the iPhone itself and didn't want to mask it with a bulky case. All the metal cases on the market at that point interfered with service, so he built his own, and KLOQE was born.

"KLOQE solves a complaint that I feel will hit home with Apple brand enthusiasts -- and it's no secret that there are a ton of them out there," Troiani said. "I think the iPhone is the pinnacle of cell phone design, and would never want to cover all that beauty with a cheap, ugly plastic or rubber cell phone case."

KLOQE's innovative design sets it apart from the competition, and makes it remarkably like the iPhone itself. With its chamfered, curved corners and the slightly chilled feel of aircraft-grade aluminum, KLOQE delivers the most similar experience to holding an original iPhone in your hand on the market today. A simple, two-piece body slides together and locks into place with no tools needed. The case comes in black, white, grey and champagne so that users can match their phone or choose another subtle color that is slightly different.

While other aluminum or all-metal cases have quickly been abandoned because of lost reception, KLOQE's patent-pending design avoids this problem. Utilizing electric discharge machining and injection molding in key areas prevents any possible signal interruption, while still being able to mimic the iPhone's original design.

KLOQE's design also protects dropped iPhones without incorporating any silicone or rubber material. The case is designed with a .04 millimeter air gap between the side of the phone and the case, eliminating any metal on metal scratching. KLOQE is designed to grab onto the tiny top edge adjacent to the screen, leaving a perfect fit and no scratching.

KLOQE is currently available online for $69.95, and the company is offering special Black Friday sales at
