Screen Play Spotlight: DryCASE Keeps Gadgets Dry and Protected This Summer [AND iPad 2 GIVEAWAY!]

Those of us who suffered through an especially snowy and very long winter are basking in the sunshine and warm air that June is bringing. The summer months bring the joy of beach trips, pool dives and lots of watery fun. What better way to spend a summer day than at the beach with your kids, relaxing with some music, taking lots of pictures of your little beach bums and reading a book on your Kindle.

Those of us who suffered through an especially snowy and very long winter are basking in the sunshine and warm air that June is bringing. The summer months bring the joy of beach trips, pool dives and lots of watery fun. What better way to spend a summer day than at the beach with your kids, relaxing with some music, taking lots of pictures of your little beach bums and reading a book on your Kindle.

As inviting as that sounds, one splash of chlorine water on your iPhone or a shovel-full of sand on your e-reader can leave you scrambling to restore your settings, re-boot and hope that your gadget hasn’t fallen victim to the elements of summer. If you’re like me and rely on your phone for picture taking or is someone who must have music playing while basking in the sun, it’s wise to keep your device protected the next time you hit the beach or pool.

There’s a fantastic line of products from DryCASE that does just that. The cases enclose your device (anything from your phone, iPad, camera, video camera, e-reader, MP3 player and more) in a clear waterproof bag that seals out moisture and sand while still allowing you full functionality of the device. There is a small hand pump that is included with each case, which essentially vacuum seals your gadget and keeps it completely kid-proof, sand-proof, and waterproof. And by waterproof, I mean waterproof. You can completely submerge the bag in water and it stays completely protected.

There are different sizes for different gadgets, but they all provide the same level of protection and still give you access to your headphones (yes, they also offer waterproof headphones), let you take clear photos, even let you attach the case to your arm with the included neoprene armband.

This company knows its waterproofing. In addition to protecting electronic gadgets, it also offers a DryPRO vacuum-sealed waterproof cast protector, so that your broken-limbed child can still partake in the joys of summer.

As the summer months roll in, keep your sanity in check and your gadgetry safe with a DryCASE product, and enjoy everything this fun-in-the-sun season has to offer!

Prices for the DryCASE vary depending on size. The DryCASE for the iPhone starts at $29.99 and for the iPad, $59.99. The full retail offering can be found here. And as a bonus, Screen Play readers can enter the code “Parenting” upon check-out at either www.drycase.com or www.drycorp.com for an extra 10% discount!

Just in time for the official start of summer, DryCASE is giving away an iPad 2 and an iPad DryCASE to a lucky Screen Play reader!
