We’ve reviewed the Trident Cyclops case for iPhone and iPad, and as we said of previous cases, the Trident Cyclops series is one of our favorites. Now, Trident has expanded the Cyclops line to include the new Trident Cyclops iPad mini case.
Available in seven colors (including blue, pink, red, green and black), the Trident Cyclops iPad mini case is made with polycarbonate and thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). As such, it provides dual layer protection for the iPad mini. According to Trident, this case has been tested for rain, dust, sand, vibrations, and drop protection, and it has passed military standards.
Like other Trident Cyclops case, the Trident Cyclops iPad mini case has a built-in, scratch resistant screen protector that keeps out dirt and moisture. The ports and audio jacks of the iPad Mini are protected by TPE plugs.
The green Trident Cyclops iPad Mini case is especially appropriate, as the case is said to be environment-friendly, having been constructed with bio-enhanced plastic which is degradable, compostable and recyclable.
Of course, what I really appreciate about this case is the fact that it does not add too much bulk to the iPad Mini. Yes, that’s very important to me. As much as possible, I want my iPhone and iPad to retain their thin form factor despite wearing durable cases. I’m glad this is not a problem with the Trident Cyclops iPad Mini case. In addition, this case is not too heavy, despite its rugged build.
So, how about the price? Well, at $49.95, I would have to say that the price you have to pay for the Trident Cyclops iPad mini case is definitely worth the protection it will provide.
