Review: Peachii iBooBox – Gorgeous Eco-friendly iPhone Case

Geek Culture Reviews

Peachii-kitGorgeous is not something I usually look for in a phone case, yet, when I opened the box I received from Peachii, it is the first word that came to mind. The iBooBox is a hand-finished iPhone case made from eco-friendly, FSC-certified bamboo.

I have to admit I was a little skeptical about a phone case made out of wood, but all of my doubts went away when I started trying out this case. In addition to the beauty of a handmade bamboo case (I chose the marbled version), the iBooBox boasts a handful of features I’ve not seen in cases that are more expensive and don’t look as nice.

In addition to the hardiness of the case, created by a proprietary process that fuses carbon fiber, fiberglass, and bamboo, the iBooBox also has camera mounting threads, a neodymium magnet for easy mounting, and passive sound amplification all built-in to the case. Peachii makes universal mounts and tripod mounts that both work with the built-in magnet for easy mounting.

Peachii also offers a line of Zeikos camera lenses and accessories that work with the case. They have wide-angle, telephoto, and fish eye lenses to choose from, but don’t worry, the mount on the case is a standard 21mm so you aren’t forced to use their lenses.

The other concern I has before receiving the case was bulk. A case made of wood would surely be a hulk of a thing, but Peachii has gone out of their way to make a slim case that is still so functional and durable. The iBooBox is bigger than my normal case but only very slightly and, after using it for a day, I don’t even notice the difference.

The iBooBox is currently available for iPhone 4, 5, 6, and 6+ as well as the 5th generation iPod. iPad cases are coming soon. If you are looking for a gorgeous, full featured case for your phone, check out the iBooBox.

Note: I was given an iBooBox and a wide-angle Zeikos lens for review purposes, but all thoughts and opinions here are my own.
