QualityStocks’ Review of ZAGG Inc.’s (ZAGG.OB) invisibleSHIELD

Monday, March 16th, 2009

This month, Michael McCarthy, the Managing Director of QualityStocks, purchased the new Sony Ericsson X1 smartphone and wanted to make sure his new favorite cellphone had adequate protection from scratches and dings. So he inquired from ZAGG if they could send them their custom designed, award-winning invisibleSHIELD™ product for use with his phone. CEO and President Robert G. Pedersen agreed and within days Mr. McCarthy received the product in the mail.

The invisibleShield is created from an exclusive, ultra-tough patented film originally designed by the US Military to protect helicopter blades from wind, sand, rain and high speed travel. ZAGG backs their invisibleShield with a lifetime guarantee which allows the consumer to use the product without fear of nicks or scratches and, more importantly, provides the customer with piece of mind. The invisibleSHIELD has been designed to protect more than 2,500 handheld electronics, including the Apple iPod touch, the Apple iPhone 3G, the LG Voyager, the BlackBerry Curve and many, many more.

Applying the film was easy and didn’t add any bulk to the smartphone. To install, all Mr. McCarthy had to do was spray a solution to prepare for sticking, apply the invisibleSHIELD™ to his device, soak up the excess moisture with a lint-free cloth and blow dry. As promised, the film was completely resistant to scratches and tears. Unquestionably, the film was superior to completive products that seem to always lose their sticking, stretch or shrink to an undesirable size, and/or tear, allowing foreign objects to scratch the device.

ZAGG Inc. (ZAGG.OB) Debuts New Protective Cover for G1 Smartphone

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

Our Director of Marketing saw ZAGG at one of the many financial conferences she attends and came back with a very favorable opinion on ZAGG’s InvisibleSHEILD™ coverings. InvisibleSHIELD™ is made from a patented adhesive film exclusive to ZAGG for the purpose of protecting high-performance electronic devices, such as mobile phones, PDAs, gaming devices and laptops.

ZAGG’s film is very thin, a mere .2mm thick and is virtually indestructible. Our Director of Marketing was invited to take a ball point pen and try to scratch or destroy the film. She was unsuccessful; much to the delight of the presenters. The film even snapped back to its original shape after being stretched in such a way. The InvisibleSHIELD™ Nano-memory™ technology helps keep the film snug to the electronic device without the eventual stretching of some conventional plastic covers.

The ultra-tough material used to create the invisibleSHIELD was originally utilized by the U.S. military to protect helicopter blades from wind, sand and the wear and tear of high-speed travel. Combining this military-grade scratch protection with precision-cut designs, the invisibleSHIELD, backed by a lifetime guarantee, allows customers to use their electronics without the fear of scratches or nicks. ZAGG’s invisibleSHIELD for the G1 is available through multiple retail outlets, or on ZAGG.com, for USD $24.95.
