Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced a range of protective mobile phone cases featuring a brand-new thermal cooling technology, compatible with the new 2019 iPhones (iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max), 2018 iPhones (iPhone XR, XS, XS Max), and Razer Phone 2. The new Razer Arctech™ range uses Thermaphene™, a Razer proprietary, custom-designed heat-dissipating layer, to significantly reduce phone operating temperatures.
With today’s handsets capable of running more graphically complex games, heat build-up has become a growing issue – it can reduce performance and strain battery life, which can dramatically hinder the playing experience. Most phone cases exacerbate this problem by trapping heat between the phone case and the handset.
The Razer Arctech cases feature a combination of thermally-conductive layers to effectively dissipate heat, allowing for better phone performance and improved battery life. They have been designed to allow unhindered network connectivity, ensuring smooth gameplay and video streaming as well as working seamlessly with Qi-certified wireless chargers.
“Smartphone users want to protect their handset but still enjoy maximum performance and battery life,” says Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President for Razer’s peripherals business unit. “The new Razer Arctech cases deliver great protection, stylish looks and fantastic cooling to keep those gaming sessions going longer.”
Lose the heat, win the game
The Razer Arctech cases are made up of three layers:
- The Thermaphene layer to absorb and then transfer heat away from the phone body whilst preventing dirt and dust from entering the case,
- A soft microfiber layer to cushion the handset and protect it from scratches
- A perforated exterior polycarbonate/thermoplastic elastomer case to protect the handset from drops and shocks.
Thermaphene is a thermally-conductive material that dissipates heat. In independent testing against similar style cases, the Razer Arctech case maintained temperatures up to 6° Celsius lower than the comparison case. Throughout the 2-hour test cycle, the Razer Arctech case kept the handset below the manufacturer’s maximum recommended operating temperature whilst the comparison case climbed above this level within 20 minutes and remained there for the remainder of the test.
Choose your case, keep your cool
The Razer Arctech cases are available in two versions: Arctech Slim and Arctech Pro, both featuring Thermaphene for enhanced cooling performance. Each case will be available in Black, Quartz and Mercury colour schemes.
The Arctech Slim case is designed for those wanting protection with the minimum of impact upon the form factor of their handset. Designed to fit comfortably in the hand, the Arctech Slim design complements the iPhone button and port layout whilst providing the premium experience in cooling and scratch protection.
The Artech Pro and Arctech Pro THS Edition cases feature a scratch-resistant back plate, four shock-absorbent sidewalls and are certified for up to 10ft/3m drop protection to give the utmost defense from the knocks and bumps of daily use.
Razer Arctech cases will be available from launch for the following smartphones:
- iPhone XS
- iPhone XS Max
- iPhone XR
- iPhone 11
- iPhone 11 Pro
- iPhone 11 Pro Max
- Razer Phone 2
