If you have ever mixed up your AirPods with someone else’s, or let that small white case slip out of your hands and hit the ground, it’s not a bad idea to look for a bit of personalization and protection. Incase has a refined solution for protecting the charging case that holds and powers your AirPods. The folks over at Incase have crafted the Metallic Case, a lightweight, form-fitting case made from a high-quality metallic material that adds an element of style to your AirPods — while keeping its glossy charging case from getting scuffed and scratched. The case material features a textured, 100% vegan fabric with a subtle metallic finish making it durable and resistant to stains and abrasions so it will never lose its good looks.You can also grab 20% off the case with the code INC-GEAR20, so why not protect the way you connect.
