How Rugged is Rugged?

In addition to protecting yourself from cell phone radiation, protecting your phone is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing your cell phone case, which is why we’re often asked “how rugged is the Pong Rugged case?”.

For starters, it’s built on a strong, yet flexible polycarbonate chassis and is encased in resilient and tough rubber-like TPU, that provides durable protection and shock absorption. It has survived drop tests of over 8 feet onto a rough concrete surface with no damage to the case or phone.

But perhaps most impressively, Pong’s Rugged cases have been independently certified to exceed the U.S. Military Standard Drop Test (MIL-STD-810G; Method 516.6). But what does that mean, exactly?

MIL-STD810G are the standards set by the Department of Defense to establish uniform engineering and technical testing requirements for U.S. Military equipment. During Method 516.6, free fall shock tests are performed to ensure that equipment can withstand drops encountered during handling, transportation, and normal use.

The Pong Rugged case was independently evaluated by MET Laboratories in Maryland, a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) in the United States for testing and certification. MET Labs evaluates products and systems in extreme conditions in their Environmental Simulation Laboratory. Testing is automated to maximize accuracy and repeatability.

Per MIL-STD-810G, MET Labs engineers performed 26 drops from 4 feet on an iPhone 4 in a Pong Rugged case. The case was dropped from on all edges, corners and faces onto a steel plate. Upon completion no damage to either case or device was observed.

The results of the test proved that Pong’s Rugged case passed MIL-STD-810G. And Pong’s own internal laboratory tests from 8ft drops show that the Rugged case actually exceeds the U.S. Military Standard Drop Test. Not many rugged cases can say this, which is why the Pong Rugged case is truly deserving of its name.
