IRVINE, CA (July 17, 2023) — MAXCases, a leading manufacturer of protective cases and accessories for iPads, Chromebooks, laptops, and tablets, announced that the company’s Extreme Shell-F Slide Case for Chromebooks/laptops and the Shield Extreme-X2-H case with Hand Strap for iPad 10 were awarded “Best of Show” at ISTELive 23 by Tech & Learning. According to the publication, evaluation criteria included: ease of use, value, uniqueness in the market, and proof that the product helped make teachers' lives easier and supported student achievement.

As flagship models in the company’s newest product lines, both the Extreme Shell-F and Shield Extreme-X2-H cases were developed with consideration for the specific needs of educators, students, and families, with durability, quality, and features that protect devices and deliver long-lasting use.

“We are thrilled that these products were recognized by Tech & Learning in meeting their criteria for supporting student achievement and making teacher’s lives easier – as well as doing so while delivering value,” said MAXCases CEO Al Giazzon. “These are exactly the things we strive for when creating our products.”

“We received an impressive array of nominations for this year’s awards,” says Christine Weiser, content director for Tech & Learning. “Our judges chose the products that they believed best supported innovation in the classroom and district. Congratulations to our winners!”

MAXCases Extreme Shell-F Slide Case
Designed to deliver added protection for the vulnerable screen area, the MAXCases Extreme Shell-F Slide Case for Chromebooks and laptops has a patent pending top design that enables it to slide onto the device, rather than attaching with clips. This slide-on design disperses pressure evenly around the entire perimeter of the screen, providing a protective fit that also eliminates pressure hotspots around the screen. Along with delivering added protection for this expensive-to-repair area, this slide-on design enables faster, easier installation.

The Extreme Shell-F Slide case for Chromebooks and laptops further protects devices with a layered bumper design. On the interior, soft TPU next to the device absorbs shocks. The outer covering of rugged TPE is dirt, scratch, and oil resistant. Completing the bumper design, overhang corners on the case top double the protection when the device is closed. The clear, rigid top and bottom panels prevent exterior damage and provide visibility for asset tags. The custom fit ensures easy access to all buttons and ports.

The Extreme Shell-F Slide case is available for all leading education Chromebooks brands, including the Acer C736 11-inch Chromebook, Dell 3100/3110 11.6-inch Chromebook, and Lenovo 11-inch 100e G3 Chromebook. The MAXCases Extreme Shell-F is currently available for an MSRP of $49.95. Volume pricing is available. Custom colors and logos are available with a minimum order quantity.

MAXCases Shield Extreme-X2-H with Hand Strap
With customizable features designed to deliver flexible use for teachers and students, the MAXCases Shield Extreme-X2-H Case provides versatility and rugged protection for the iPad® 10. The 360-degree rotating hand strap provides teachers with secure, one-handed use as they move around the classroom. Made of soft silicone for a comfortable fit, it can be easily removed for cleaning or when not needed for student use. The FlexStand™ kickstand attaches with a friction hinge that enables unlimited viewing angles and stable vertical viewing. Designed to withstand the rigors of daily classroom use, the durable kickstand is virtually unbreakable.

Featuring durable dual-layer bumpers, the MAXCases Shield Extreme-X2-H provides rugged MIL-STD 810G-516.6 protection for drop protection up to six feet, with shock-absorbing TPU next to the device and an outer covering of rugged TPE that is dirt, scratch, and oil resistant.

The commercial-grade screen protector protects against scratches and drop damage while providing smooth and accurate touch response. The molded stylus holder securely accommodates the Apple Pencil®, Logitech Crayon, or equivalent. Durable corner anchors make it easy to add an (optional) hand strap, shoulder strap or any clip-on/lanyard accessory.

The MAXCases Shield Extreme-X2-H case is compatible with the 10.9-inch iPad 10 for an MSRP $49.95. Volume pricing along with custom colors are available with a minimum quantity.
