“At a time where we spend on average more than 3 hours per day on our smartphones, there is nothing more frustrating than a dead battery or a broken phone caused by a shock. The look of a device is also important as it is highly valued in purchase decisions. That’s why we decided to design an Energizer smartphone that would look stylish while being extra resistant and with great battery autonomy. The Hardcase H500S is only 10mm thin, which is quite slim for a rugged phone”
