Product Description

A completely waterproof case to fit large phones with bumper cases on them. For example, it’ll fit an iPhone 8 Plus with an OtterBox Defender case on it.

This is the largest of Aquapac's 5 ‘Classic’ submersible phone cases.

The original waterproof phone case – and still the best!

What’s so special about this case?

  • You’ll be able to talk and hear through it without a problem
  • and get great photos and video
  • and your touchscreen will work normally
  • It’s not just 100% waterproof – it’ll protect your phone from dust, dirt and sand too
  • You won’t necessarily have to buy a new one when you upgrade your phone, because it’s a generic rather than a form-fit case (unlike a hard case, it’s not tailored to a specific device).

Anything Else?

  • It comes with a lanyard so you can hang it round your neck
  • It’s securely, submersibly waterproofed thanks to the quick-action AQUACLIP® seal
  • The seams are welded together with high frequency radio waves, creating a super-strong bond
  • The optically-clear LENZFLEX window is UV-stabilized (so it won’t go yellow in the sun)
  • and the case will still be soft and functional in the extreme cold.

Is this the right size for my phone?368-waterproof-phone-case-iphone-8-plus-size-code-368-dimensions.jpg

  • This case fits iPhone 6+, 7+, 8+ and other phones that are the same size – or smaller
  • If you have a bumper case on your phone and want to keep it on then this is probably the best case

What else do I need to know?
  • Some smartphones can be very sticky. If your phone is shiny and sticky, pinch the corner of the case and jiggle it to get your phone in and out.
  • Some phones will float in this case and some won’t – make sure you test yours in a basin before you launch it into the sea!
  • Capacitive touchscreens don’t work underwater, the water breaks the circuit. But you can use the volume buttons to operate your camera underwater.
  • Fingerprint recognition such as Apple’s Touch ID won’t work through the Aquapac – you will have to enter your passcode.
  • Some phones have rather sharp edges. We recommend use of a thin bumper case which will protect both phone and case.
My phone is described as waterproof - do I really need a waterproof case?

Apple phones since the iPhone 7 have been rated as water-resistant when they are new, but this resistance wears off with use. 

Samsung phones are a little more waterproof than iPhones but are not suitable for use in salt water. 

You will need a waterproof case if you want to:

  • Go into the sea or salt water
  • Use the phone properly when it’s wet (the microphone can get water in it, making you very quiet)
  • Use a chipped, cracked or old phone in or near water
  • Want to do watersports like surfing, jet-skiing, wake boarding or rafting
  • Use your phone in the shower
  • Use your phone in the hot tub or sauna.

A lot of our customers tell us that they still use an Aquapac with a water-resistant phone – for the peace of mind you get from having that extra level of protection.

Care and Tips:

Warning
Our warranty covers this Aquapac only, and not any items you may put inside it. We recommend that you insure the contents separately.

Waterproofness
Our range has been independently tested to international waterproofing standards. However, the waterproofness of your Aquapac depends on your closing and opening it carefully, and on it not being damaged either before or during use. Please follow all instructions carefully.

Before Every Use
Seal something worthless inside, then submerge in a basin to check the waterproofness.

 

 

 

Closing the Case
Make sure that all parts are properly attached. Wipe away any grit or sand, which could hamper the seal. Always turn the levers as far as they will go. They should lock smoothly, if not there may be something impeding the seal.

Opening the Case
Never open your Aquapac in or under water. In order to stop any water getting in when you are opening it, first shake off any water then dry with a towel. Hold the case with the opening at the bottom as you open it.

Ongoing Care
Our materials are strong but can still be punctured. Avoid sharp or abrasive objects and protect from impacts. After regular contact with chlorinated or salt water, or with sun creams, wash in soapy water and then rinse with fresh water. Do not use bleach, alcohol or proprietary cleaners.

Materials
Aquapacs are made from a variety of materials, mostly plastics which make them rustproof. These include TPU, ABS, nylon and polypropylene.

Extreme Temperatures
Although the case material has been UV-stabilized – which means that the plastic shouldn’t be discoloured or broken down by sunlight – the Aquapac won’t protect anything inside it from heat or sunlight. The soft case material is functional and flexible in air temperatures -40ºC to +60ºC (-40ºF to +140ºF), and water temperatures up to +40ºC (+100ºF).

Humidity and Condensation
In humid climates there will be moisture in the air sealed inside the case. Desiccant sachets will absorb the moisture, keeping the contents completely dry. We recommend use of desiccant sachets in all Aquapacs in humid climates. You can purchase spare sachets – see Accessories.

Warning
This is not a toy. It may contain small parts which may be a choking hazard to children under 3. Keep small parts away from children.

Tips for Taking Good Photographs
If you follow a few guidelines there’s no reason why anyone should notice that your photos were taken through a case. It’s a bit like taking a photograph through your window at home. First of all the window needs to be as clean as possible. Even with a clean window you may notice some reflection, but the closer you hold the camera lens to the window, the less the reflection. Similarly our cases give best results with the lens window tight against the camera lens. Try to avoid flash photography but if you do need to use the flash, make sure that the case is tight over the flash so the light doesn’t reflect back into the lens.

Underwater Photography
It takes a bit of practice – and a little luck – to get really good underwater photos. Please don’t think that every shot you take is going to make the cover of SportDiver magazine! You need strong sunshine and clear water. The middle of the day is best, when the sun’s at its highest. Best results will be just below the surface. Light disappears quickly as you go deeper, as do colours (one of the advantages of digital cameras is that you can retouch your photos afterwards to replace colours lost underwater). Flash rarely works underwater. Not because of the Aquapac, but because the flash tends to reflect off particles in the water itself. Even clean water is full of micro-organisms and other particles. The less water between you and your subject, the less difference this will make and therefore the clearer your shots are likely to be. Wide lens and close up is the secret.
