worse idea ever. Why would anyone put that case to their face? And when you spray the pepper spray, some of it will end up on the phone.

Lol try and use something like that in the Uk and it would cost a trip to the cells.

Remember the iphone 4/4s case Rihanna used that looked like a knuckle duster !

Now that caused a bit of discussion.

If you have to spray that pepper, the last thing you should be worried about is your phone.

In the UK this would get you in trouble with the police if they find out you are carrying it even if you have never used it.

According to the law, you're not supposed to carry anything for self-defence for a "just in case" situation.

I can just picture someone drunk and answering a phone and hitting the wrong button and spraying himself.

Yes. How very sad that a once-proud nation has forgotten the basic human right to self defense.

Of course not. Only criminals are allowed weapons in the UK.

From the pic that looks more like breath spray. Not a surprise really, there is already a stun gun case.
