Benefits of a glow-in-the-dark iPhone January 26 2014

Time and again, we receive e-mails from Glow Gel customers telling us how they continually get stopped in the street by strangers asking them what they have on their iPhone and how they can get it. This makes us very happy because our primary objective at the start was to create a new form of iPhone protection that looked amazing. Something to showcase the true beauty of the iPhone rather than cover it up like most cases do. Something radically different from anything out there AND...

We needed it to glow.

Not just any glow, but a glow that would make the gods themselves look dim in comparison.

Now a glow-in-the-dark iPhone is pretty neat. I mean, anything glow-in-the-dark is an astounding thing. Magical. But the ability to have your iPhone glow-in-the-dark is more than just a novelty. To us, it's a necessity. So in this post, we decided to list our top four 'glow' benefits of an iPhone Glow Gel skin cover...

1.) Easily locate iPhone in purses, backpacks, bags, etc.

For all you ladies out there, you know how much you carry in your purse. It can be a dark bottomless pit or a disaster zone. Either way, it's difficult to find your iPhone in your bag when you need it. Add up all the time you waste looking for it in the year and you can easily take a small vacation.

But put a Glow Gel on your iPhone and it will stand out like a radiant beacon of light. No more digging and searching for it. Just open up your bag and look for the glow. 

2.) Find your iPhone in your place of residence.

This is one of the reasons I love Glow Gel skins so much. Before Glow Gels, I could never seem to find my iPhone in my apartment. I'd be rushing to leave the house, scrambling around everywhere looking. Now, all I have to do is shut the lights off in each room and look for the glowing object that happens to be my iPhone.

Not to mention when I have to get up in the middle of the night. It's nice to be able to spot your iPhone right away and use it as a night light to get to the bathroom or kitchen without turning on lights. Which brings me to benefit #

3.) A source of light when there is no electricity.

Last year I went camping in the majestic mountains of Big Sur. After all the batteries drained from our flashlights and iPhones, we had no source of light besides fire and the Glow Gel skin that was on my iPhone. At night, it was pitch black. Luckily the Glow Gel retains its luminescence -- a glow bright enough to read from -- throughout the night. And it got me to thinking that if the electricity were to go out for an extended period of time wherever I was, a Glow Gel skin is a wonderful thing to have. I just watched the movie 'All is Lost' yesterday starring Robert Redford. Good movie. It's about a man who ends up lost at sea. And I thought: If he had a Glow Gel with him, his odds of being found in the middle of the ocean would have improved significantly. Just wave that thing around and wait for a tanker to come to your rescue.

4.) A reminder that we should all dare to glow.

DARE TO GLOW. That's our motto. The magical glow of a Glow Gel on your iPhone can serve as a reminder that you too can dare to glow. It's a reminder to dream big. To strive to be the best we can be no matter the odds… Everybody says 'Know your limits' well we say 'Know your limits and them defy them!' Because we too can glow. Have you ever seen someone doing what their meant to do? The electricity that comes off them... They joy... Passion... They're glowing.

We all have that ability.

Dare to glow.
