If you carry a radio-frequency identification card, this iPhone case is for you.

The iPhone 4/4S case, released this week, has a special compartment for tap-and-go cards. The protective case is optimal for one or two cards, which keeps your phone sleek and slim. Feel free to store extra cash or an office key card here, too.

The product's biggest differentiator from other carriers on the market is its shielded internal storage flap, which keeps iPhone and RFID card signals from crossing. RFID cards usually consist of a small chip or tiny antenna, which store key information including credit card numbers, expiration data and security information.

We recommend consumers use the case to carry transit cards and nothing too valuable. We don't recommend having RFID-enabled cards without a RFID-blocking wallet or card shield that jams the signal. High-tech crooks are known to to steal valuable data from unassuming victims with homemade radio-frequency readers. The Hex Stealth case does not stop the broadcast of RFID signals.
