Actual measurement I tried using 14 g ultra-light aluminum bumper "RECTA" for iPhone 5

Cases and bumpers for iPhone 5 using aluminum die casting technology for automobile parts production are "RECTA(Lecta) "series. The bumper seems to be designed to enjoy a unique texture of aluminum while maintaining strength while being lightweight about 14 g in weight, so I borrowed the real thing and tried photographing every corner.

"RECTA iPhone 5 bumperThere are color variations of silver, white, black.

"RECTAAll series are made in Japan.

The actual weight of bumper only is about 14 grams.

Screw hole at the corner of the case.

For installation, use the included hexagonal wrench.

When installing, place the iPhone on the part under the bumper.

Then put the upper part OK.

Just screw the four corners afterwards. Even for the first time it is a work that ends in 1 or 2 minutes.

When the installation is over it is like this.

Bumper will not interfere with the rear camera.

You can use volume buttons on the side with the bumper on.

Although it is designed to be able to press the sleep button on the top, it makes it difficult for a finger to enter a little.

The bottom is like this.

You can connect the Lightning terminal and earphone while attaching the bumper.

Shiny appearance.

I tried installing it on iPhone.

That's why I do not want to wear a case on my iPhone and make it look rusty or heavy, but if you say that you really want to keep the guard on the terminal "RECTAIt seems to be good to use a combination of protective film and series.
