Ballistic is well known for their line of very protective iPhone and iPad cases. In fact, when I need a case that provides excellent shock and drop protection, I used to  usually slip on a Ballistic LS case for my iPhone 4. Nowadays, it’s a permanent fixture on my old iPhone as my kid uses it now to play games and has survived many drops thanks to it. Well, that high level of protection is available now for the new iPad mini. Ballistic announced that their popular Ballistic Lifestyle – LS and Tough Jacket – TJ cases are now available for the iPad mini.

My favorite of the two is the Lifestyle – L series as this is the more stylish of the two. and includes interchangeable corner bumpers that are used for shock absorbance. These work and really do help protect the corners of your device from some serious drops.

If you need something even more protective than that, check out the Tough Jacket – TJ case. This is one heavy duty case that will withstand the toughest of abuse. It even includes a screen cover for complete protection of the iPad mini when not in use.

Both cases are available now from Ballistic – $60 for the TJ and $40 for the LS case. For more details, check out the official press release below.

Press Release

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – (November 5, 2012) – Ballistic, award-winning designers of advanced mobile accessories, announces its two new intelligently designed cases for the just-released iPad® mini. Both variations have been crafted to harness the new tablets’ on-the-go nature.  The Ballistic Tough Jacket – TJ™ is engineered with three layers of protection, making it the strongest on the market, while the Ballistic Lifestyle – LS™ features a thin and stylish exterior. Small enough to hold in one hand, and tote around regularly, the new iPad mini is a strong candidate for sporting both protective and head-turning cases.

The Ballistic Tough Jacket – TJ™ is a compilation of inner silicone to absorb shock, impact resistant hard plastic, and an additional shock absorbent polymer layer. Also equipped with Ballistic corners, this military grade case ensures much-needed protection for the most sensitive portion of the iPad mini. The “lay-on-table” feature guarantees the screen will never touch the surface when laid flat. Users can also take advantage of the optional screen cover, which doubles as a kickstand for optimal viewing angles.

The Ballistic Lifestyle – LS™ wraps around the iPad in a snug fashion, without adding any significant bulk to Apple’s slim tablet design. This specific “snug fit” feature ensures that while grasping the tablet tightly, it is still incredibly easy to remove given the accordion-like exterior. Sixteen interchangeable corner bumpers (four of each color) are also included so users can mix and match color options. These patented corners guarantee much-needed protection for the most sensitive portion of the iPad. Built with Ballistic’s high-quality protective materials, including TPU, the Lifestyle – LS™ maintains a protective purpose as well.

The Ballistic Tough Jacket – TJ™ and Lifestyle – LS™ for iPad mini will be available in November for $60.00 and $40.00 respectively, at and a variety of other retail stores nationwide.
