iPhone5mod Launches Translucent Mod Kit in Seven Colors for iPhone 5

iPhone5mod continues to launch both unofficial Lightning accessories and other interesting products for iPhone owners, and the company today has announced its Translucent Mod Kit for the iPhone 5.

The kit includes an entire set of parts to turn an iPhone 5 translucent on the rear and sides, offering users willing to disassemble their devices a rather unique look. Due to high cost and complexities involving the LCD on the iPhone 5 display, the mod kit does not change the front of the device.

The set includes a translucent rear body panel, as well as translucent micro-SIM card slot, mute/power buttons and a translucent Lightning port. The rear body panel is available in seven different translucent colors: white, black, blue, green, yellow, red, and pink.


The kit also includes color-matched top and bottom antenna windows on the rear of the device. For the first 48 hours of availability, customers will receive all seven sets of top and bottom windows in the various colors, allowing users to mix and match as they see fit. After the limited time offer, users will have to select one color of top and bottom window panels for their orders.

Pricing is set at $39.90 for the entire kit, although customers interested in purchasing all seven color variations of the main back body panel can do so for a kit price of $169.

Why do iPhone5mod, one of hundreds of companies based in china, that make fake, counterfeit parts and accessories, continuously get exposure like this?

It's misleading for customers as the stuff they sell is cheap, fake tat.

This applies from the other news post a couple of days ago: https://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=16591988&postcount=24

Why do we only hear about iPhone5Mod? Why not every other knockoff product maker we see all over the place? Genuine question.

Exactly and I'd like to see an answer to this.

Great, now you can make your new iPhone 5 more fragile, more prone to interference, and almost certainly heavier, for the low price of $40!

Oh, and you have to completely disassemble your phone and reassemble it from scratch. But all the screw holes probably won't line up. And metal screws into plastic? This is such a bad idea, but I guess anyone who buys it deserves what they're getting.
