Element Case gets all stealthy with the Vapor Pro case for iPhone 4

You may recall that my review of the Element Case Vapor case for the iPhone 4 was not all good, citing problems with comfort, reception, and clearance in the cutouts for the headphone and dock connector.

Well, few things please me more than a company that can learn from its mistakes, and Element Case is trying to do just that.  The company has revealed a special edition of their newest case, the Vapor Pro.  The case configuration is now made of two L-shaped pieces (like the Kinetic Case), has larger connector cutouts, includes a carbon-fiber back plate, has a special electrolytic hard coat to preserve the finish, and contains an aerospace polymer insert that is designed to prevent the “death grip” signal loss issue.

The Vapor Pro First Edition is available now for $149.99 (yikes!) from the Element Case website.

    $150 for that?
    Buy a protector at dealextreme for 2-4 $ and do something useful with the rest of the 150$
    IMHO …

    What an absurd price for a case. I’d love to meet the morons that would shell out that type of money for a case.

    You might want to check out this new very thin, water-etc proof mil-spec case for 1/2 the price of the Element.

    mmm … that Lifeproof looks interesting.

    A test on The Gadgeteer would be nice. Hint … 🙂

    Because it’s waterproof, you’d probably have to take it off every time you want to sync or recharge your iPhone.
    How would this hold up in real live?
