WIN! One Of 10 Opena iPhone 5 ... Bottle Opener Cases!

Can you feel it? The end of the year is upon us and fun in the sun awaits. If you’re planning to enjoy a tasty beverage or two, what better way to geek out than with a bottle opener built into your iPhone 5 case. They’re worth $40 each and we have 10 to giveaway!

This competition is now closed.

Who Won?

It was tough, but we narrowed the field down to 10 winners. Here they are.

informedgamer picked up an Opena case for wooing airport security into buying him alcohol:

I actually used it at the international airport security because they were genuinely intrigued. Not only did I get to keep it for the flight, they even paid for the beer just to see it in action. Definition of winning.

gs500f wins for beating NASA at its own game:

You would need one on Mars. The rover has every other gizmo and gadget but not a swanky bottle opener.

scottrx7 is smarter than most survivalists:

Sitting in my end of the world bunker, realising that I have 30 cases of beer and no bottle opener.

scottpartridge is all about the upside:

There is NO doubt in my mind I will be using this when Apple maps decides to take me, my mates and a case of beers to some completely unexpected destination other than the beach, party or whatever summer activity I have planned… then BOOM instant roadside beers with the mates thanks to the opena bottle opener. Then after a few I would realize, why didn’t I just use google maps?

ianknighton for giving me a tip I can use myself:

Visiting the in-laws. Whip one of these out, and I can see her father taking a more favourable stance towards me – and my passion for geek-toys!

vandab is a sentimentalist at any altitude:

On a space shuttle. Imagine travelling all the way out into orbit and seeing a magnificent sunset and forgetting to pack the bottle opener!

localhost wins for breaking the rules in the booziest way:

I would use it at a restaurant under the table when I BYO my beer to a non-BYO place :)

truthfulnerd’s entry won’t win any numbers, but it will win an Opena case:

Trying to pick up a very attractive woman in a bar by offering my opena and in turn phone to get her number. Smooth.

tallrob_adelaide knows that being a cheeky bugger is not location-specific:

At a Samsung Christmas party!

And finally, elizabethg wins for solving all of our problems

Waiting in line at the supermarket on Christmas eve…

Congratulations to all our winners!


This year’s Opena case is thinner, lighter and more durable than ever. It’s about celebrating convenience in a cheeky way. So with that in mind, here’s how you can enter to win one:

Simply to tell us in the comments the most unusual/funny place you could imagine requiring the services of the Opena. Winners will be able to choose between either black or white. Fancy.

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Competition closes 10am 24th December. Prizes sent out mid January.
Full terms and conditions.

Merry Christmas!
