I havent had time to put this through it's paces yet as I just got it in the mail an hour ago. This is the new SENA Leather Dockable Case. I was a pre-order customer and I think the rest are shipping out soon.

Initial impressions are that this is as well made as all of the other Sena cases I have owned. I ordered mine in Black and one in Baby Blue for the wife. The big draw for this case is that you can dock it while it is still in the case. It is a snug fit as always but gets easier as the case gets broken in. The ratcheting belt clip is adjustable and will hold the iPhone at a 90 degree angle or whatever you would choose.

The major drawback of this case is that the corners are not protected. I know they can't really cover the corners on the bottom because it would prevent it from fitting in the dock. I am going to keep my NLU BodyGuardz on in case it takes a dive onto some asphault. Anyway here are some pics! Enjoy!

I got mine here . . . Sena Cases

Sena Magnetic Flipper

Wow looks nice I just got my Sena iPhone Magnetic Flipper case and Elega iPhone Pouch yesterday as well. I will try to get some pics and a review up as soon as possible. So far I am loving the Elega pouch. The Magnetic flipper case I have looks similar to yours except the flip part holds itself in place with magnets.

probably shouldn't charge it with a case on. Apple warns of this on their site. Says it generates to much heat: http://www.apple.com/batteries/iphone.html

"Let It Breathe:
Charging your iPhone while in certain carrying cases may generate excess heat, which can affect battery capacity. If you notice that your iPhone gets hot when you charge it, take it out of its case first."

Mine arrived yesterday, and as usual (I've owned many Sena cases for different devices), it's great quality, very nice leather, perfect fit, and feels good to hold.

But I'm not sure I'm going to keep using it. The thing is, it really adds a lot of thickness to the phone. I wanted the flap to protect the screen, but the whole case feels like it almost doubles the thickness of the phone. Not good for the pants pocket!

Also, Sena usually gives two choices on their cases--one with the belt clip attachment point, and one without. On this one, they all have that attachment point, and (since I don't use the belt clip) I would rather not have that there at all.

Not sure how I feel about it. I'm going to use it for a few days and then decide. Maybe I should have gotten one of the other models, or maybe I just waited so long for the case that now I'm adapted to having the iPhone thin and naked.

Sena Elega iPhone Pouch

Here are some pics and my review of the Sena Elega iPhone Pouch. This case is made of some very high grade leather. The belt clip on the back can rotate 360 degrees. And there are holes on the bottom of the case to allow the sound to come out so you can hear when the phone rings. Also the inside of the case is lined with some very soft felt lining and the case fits very snug like a glove. So snug that if you hold the case upside down with the iPhone in it, it will not fall out.
See Pics below.

I bought the slim pouch for the reasons you mention. I didn't want a clip - I keep the phone in my pocket. I just wanted a simple slip case, and the Sena pouch is perfect for that.
