There’s a chance that your iPhone has come into contact with water, and you’ve probably figured out that the device isn’t exactly waterproof. There are some heavy duty cases out there that help protect the iPhone from water damage, but not many can guarantee that your iPhone will be totally waterproof.

The RainBallet case, by The Joy Factory, is a waterproof case for the iPhone 4. Now your iPhone can accompany you on those long days at the beach.

Water damage is one of the main iPhone killers, and pools, beaches, etc. all pose a dangerous threat to your device’s well being. Luckily, water, sand and dust will be kept at bay by the RainBallet case.

The case also has Sharpvue lenses, which ensure that you’ll be able to shoot photos/capture video underwater with both of the iPhone 4’s cameras. The case has been designed with the Intelli-filter to block only water. The Joy Factory claims that the RainBallet will preserve the sound quality of the device, as well as the sound of the videos you take underwater.

Here’s the case’s full list of features:

  • Fits iPhone 4 snugly (AT&T, Verizon)
  • Resists damage from rain, water jets, sweat or splashes.
  • Intelli-filter™ design blocks water, not sound, to preserve sound quality.
  • Built-in shock-resistant structure provides extra protection.
  • Front and back Sharpvue™ lenses enables high-quality photos through the case.
  • Meets IPX5 standards.

The RainBallet case costs $40 and is available for order on The Joy Factory’s website.

Has your iPhone suffered from water damage? What do you think of the RainBallet? Will you be buying one?

    Seems worth for just being able to take underwater videos instead of buying a dedicated waterproof camcorder.

  • This case is great. Its a beast of a sucker but awesome

  • Saleh

    i’d buy it if u could use the screen while its on

  • iphoneuser16

    pretty cheap compared to the otterbox case and underwater movies soo cool.

  • Rainrose

    That’s cool!

  • Thor

    But the features say “resists damage from rain….”. It is either waterproof or it is not. Which is it?

    • Thor

      Just checked the site. No mention of “waterproof”. Misleading post.

      • Thor

        Yes. Not many cases can gaurantee your phone will be “totally waterproof”. Including this one.

      • Just checked the site, it says: “RainBallet, Rugged, Waterproof Case for iPhone 4 with Intelli-filter™ Design (AT&T, Verizon)”

  • XepptizZ

    Thats cause waterproof can only be downtoo a certain depth before the waterpressure gets the best of whatever is the weakest link.

    • Thor

      How much waterpressure is involved with rain?

      • XepptizZ

        I’d recon atleast one atmosphere.

      • MrA

        Not much.

  • maa

    Seems like we need some reviews on this item. Spill your guts, early adopters!

  • Jazzonline

    I find “lifeproof” the best so far, The all in one case for iphone 4. Must have!

  • Jazzonline

    Still to launch BTW … waiting for it desperately! specially for underwater videos 😀 “lifeproof” iphone 4 case. 😀

  • Nacho

    Though only being release in may I think, the Lifeproof case looks like it will be way better. WaterProof up to 6ft, drop resistant (I think 9 feet but not 100% sure) and it’s much slimmer leaving my beautiful iphone as close to the original as possible. (I don’t work for them but I preordered the case already 😀 )

  • MrA

    So Alex when you say waterproof you really mean water resistant, right? 😉

    • Jwelden

      Did you watch the video by joy? “waterproof your iPhone”

      • XepptizZ

        Thee one with the great acting, script and directing? No, but i did see the one from the article.

      • MrA
