ThinSkin Personalized Films For iPhone 4 + Giveaway!

True Power, Inc., makers of the TruePower iV Pro Battery pack, have released a line of new personalization films for the iPhone 4.

ThinSkin by True Power, Inc.

The ThinSkin films are a thin and colorful way to personalize your iPhone 4. The films remind me of an Apple Bumper but without the bulk. Like the Bumper, the films are applied along the perimeter of the iPhone 4, covering only the steel band.

Due to the thinness of the films, they do not provide very good impact protection for the iPhone 4, but they will repel scratches and scuffs from the steel band. Application of the product is very easy (guide) and is similar to applying a screen protector, but with less hassle. The films are pressure activated meaning that you can position and align the film before affixing them. Removal is also very easy and leaves no residue.

The films are packed two per package and also come in a variety of colors with a mix of fluorescent, metallic, glossy, and matte styles. The color list is as follows:

  • Matte Black
  • Silver Metallic
  • Cardinal Red
  • White
  • Rose Quartz
  • Royal Purple
  • Bright Yellow
  • Green Fluorescent
  • Vivid Blue (giveaway)
  • Pink Fluorescent
  • Magenta (giveaway)
  • Orange Fluorescent (giveaway)

Overall the films are a great personalization accessory with lots of color choices and a minimal, subtle design. The only thing to be mindful of is that once applied, the film covers the SIM tray completely. So if you have tech support issues or need to remove the SIM tray, the ThinSkin must be removed.

Each ThinSkin is $19.95, comes with two ThinSkins per package, and is available from the True Power online store.

    My iPhone 4 deserves a BLUE ThinSkin film because it doesn’t deserve to be naked.

  • tykosh

    i’d like the orange skin, and i think my iphone deserves it because the steel band is covered in scratches from my bumper case. so i want to hide those from everybody… haha

  • Griff J

    My iPhone 4 deserves the ThinSkin because I’m one of those who really has the honest to goodness antennagate issue and I can’t use my iPhone in *any* dock devices because I have to use the bumper.. I am hoping that a nice new Matte Black ThinSkin will allow me to dock my iPhone and also alleviate the antenna issues.

  • Tony

    My iphone wants the thin red skin! Tired of the thick black bumper case. Some of my older charger cables can’t be used when the bumper case is on. Thin Skin should work really well!

  • Griff J

    Oops, I didn’t notice the colour restrictions, So….. I am hoping that a nice new Orange Fluorescent ThinSkin will allow me to dock my iPhone 4.

  • carlos manuel

    My iPhone 4 deserves thinskin cuz the bumper I got from the apple store is to big 2 fit any of my docks, so I gotta keep removing it, It prefers to have the skinthin so it slides in comfertably. Also once u go vividblue it won’t b blue and nude anymore. 🙂

  • I would like the Orange Fluorescent … because I lose him all the time. Thx

  • Trungiie

    i would like the bright yellow one because it’s my favorite color. As simple as that.

  • Pisard

    Hello, longtime reader first time ‘caller’. I would love to win the Orange Flourescent thinskin for my new Iphone 4. Currently, I have just a matte, black bumber for my iphone and being an young, animated and causal individual, my phone is too dark and serious and doesn’t fit my personality. Seriously, my phone woke me up this morning saying “I DEMAND MORE COLOUR!”

  • David

    Vivid blue!
    It would be a great gift for the holidays! 🙂

  • PJG

    My iPhone should get a skin because there is no phone like mine, it is my phone and my phone is my friend and there is no other phone like my phone, my best friend!

    And he wants to be Blue!

  • Ex

    LOL!
    thank you for submitting your entry to iPiC99.3 FM. lol

  • Munky

    Because few products protect from scratches while allowing the use of most accessories/docks. Orange Fluorescent!

  • Johnnyz

    I like the Matte Black one. Because I want my iphone protected!!!

  • robihot

    My iPhone should get a skin because it’s still a virgin 🙂 — Vivid Blue !

  • chrisperro

    want the green!

  • Belimse

    I have been suffering writing final exams. I still have 2 more of them left until just right before the holiday. I am experiencing an extreme lack of sleep and smile. Please give me Orange Fluorescent ThinSkin as a gift. Thank you.

  • Cycy7191

    i dropped my iPhone 4…the sides are badly scratched up! After all the drops and falls it has gone through since the case i ordered on ebay took forever to come, my iphone deserves the orange flourescent thinskin! Thanks

  • Steve Robinson

    I like all colors black is always good and I have never won anything for my 4g and I follow all your tweets

  • Alfredo

    There’s not enough things you can do to protect your iPhone

  • Edge

    My phone really REALLY wants to look like a stock iPhone but with the protection! So, it really wants a Silcer Metallic ThinSkin!!! 🙂

  • Mirza Trokic

    My iPhone 4 deserves a ThinSkin film because it’s always better to be think skinned than thick skinned! 😉

    My iPhone 4 is whispering to me… “please, paint me vivid blue”!

  • lilsaint

    My iPhone deserves a ThinSkin Film because simply i wanna try it on my iPhone and see how it looks
    Any Color Doesnt Matter i just wanna try it on my iPhone .

  • nebulous

    My iPhone will look classy…
    I want an Orange Fluorescent.

  • Wuju

    I like to have more color on the rather boring black iPhone 4. Plus this would also solve the antenna gate issue.
    I want the orange fluorescent, followed by vivid blue…
    Thank You.

  • Kain Ocelot

    My iPhone 4 is brand-spankin’ new and still beautiful. Some nice Florescent Orange protection would save me from having little baby iPhone 4s running around out of control when my iPhone gets out there and Bumps with all pretty lady iPhones.

  • Noahattic

    i bought the similar product when i first got my iPhone 4. but they didn’t work great. somehow they left the clue on the side of the band. that made iphone 4 kind of dirty. This thin skin looks more high end. I would like to give it a try. if they work good, i ll purchase a pair of white ones.

    if i get lucky, i think Orange Fluorescent is a good choice. thx.

    my email : noahattic@gmail.com

  • Kevspeck

    My iPhone deserves a ThinSkin film because it needs to look as stylin’ as I do when I’m using my iPhone.
    And I will take a Vivid Blue, please! Thanks,
    kevspeck

  • wasabigt

    my iphone 4 needs a rival for the gela skin and bumper i have on it right now…if there can be no bulk and it still protects then it will win the cool and usability of the phone!!! yes please..

  • Doctor What

    It will prevent the band to have scratches and it makes it mine 😛 . What ever color i dont mind..its free so why complain! Orange looks sick tho 🙂

  • Anonymous

    I need one so when i’m not using my massive Otterbox Defender Case I won’t lose reception and protect the sides of my iphone.
    I’d go with Orange Fluorescent too…make the phone look really catchy

  • Sevael

    My phone is constantly in and out of a dock, both at home and at work. Having a skin like this would make it look good, keep the bezel protected and not interfere with the dock fitting.

    Vivid Blue sounds pretty nice. 🙂

  • Lubitz99

    I have a big bulky case and I want the actual cool feeling of holding a naked iphone again without having to worry about reception issues

    Vivid blue would be my choice

  • Mon_g23

    My iPhone would definitely need a film to protect the stainless band because first of all it’s brand new and I don’t have anything to protect it yet. Second of all, since it’s new I didn’t have the chance to have a free bumper from apple

    Orange Fluorescent would be so sick !!

  • Josb0513

    1.) Why does your iPhone 4 deserve a ThinSkin film?

  • Roger

    I’d like the vivid blue to get that cool look with a layar of protection.

  • Kevin

  • Phil

    2)Magenta!

  • Wynncy Manalad

    My Iphone 4 deserves a Thinskin Film to protect the sides without adding bulk. And at the same, since Christmas is just around the corner, I just wish I would this one as a gift. And if I’m going to win I prefer the orange fluorescent.

  • 1. My iPhone 4 deserves the thinskin because it’s very special to me and I want to protect the precious metal band.

    2. Vivid blue please.

  • nuckfan

    1) My friend has one and now I’m jealous. 🙁

  • Dieselboy28

    2. Vivid blue please.

  • Melissa

    1. My iPhone deserves a thin skin band because it feels overpowered by the huge scosche case it’s wearing. The case is so tight that it took me 2 hours to take it off the first time. And I’ve never taken it since!

    2. Pink or orange!

  • Marvin

    I should get this because my iPhone is naked right now.. and since winter is upon us.. will sure provide the extra protection from the cold…

    a GREEN FLOURESCENT or BRIGHT YELLOW will provide the flashiness that my iPhone deserves!

  • JEff

    I feel I should get one osf these becuase I’m going Australia on the 27th of dec and it would be a great way to represent Canada and how great we are (by awesome give aways!!) and also to protect my Iphone or in the least make it look good.
    Color doesn’t matter to me.

  • alex

    My iPhone 4 deserves the vivid blue case as it’s brand new(just got this week) and it’s my first Apple product and I want it too look as slick as ever and this case would do just that.

    Thanks

  • Anonymous

    I’d love the Orange skin. I drive an orange dodge charger, would be cool to colour match the phone to the car. 😉

    Also noticed that shipping to Canada, they want $15.20 each, which nearly doubles the price to the door.

  • iFan

    My iphone 4 doesn’t deserve the beautiful vivid blue simply for the reason that this new protection will just be tossed to the side as I get newer ones. lmao

    Also spoke with Troy @ TruePower IV and got a response within minutes regarding shipping costs. He is looking into it and said he will get it changed for 5.95 instead of 15.20. So even if I don’t get chosen for a freebe, I will be ordering one.. and hopefully saved anyone else ordering one a few bucks in shipping.

  • Tathom

    i feel i should get one, a vivid blue one as I love blue. To rock the iphone with this cover, would make my day for christmas and it would represent the vancouver canucks as well. these are pretty unique,.

  • Akz

  • Wuju007

    It doesn’t, because it’s a 3GS! But Mama’s i4 is deserving.
