Today’s Tested with 9to5Toys takes a look at elago’s latest creation, the R4 Apple TV Remote case, which recently hit the market. With a colorful design and retro Nintendo vibes, there sure is a lot to like about this low-cost add-on for Apple TV fans. Down below, you’ll find a quick overview and a few hands-on thoughts from the latest elago accessory for Apple TV.

elago’s latest creation protects your Apple TV remote

As with just about everything elago makes, this product is centered around a silicone design that slips over your existing piece of technology. With today’s release, that amounts to a thin case for your Apple TV remote.

On one side you’ll find an open-faced design that allows for access to the trackpad, volume and playback controls, and the menu button. The back reveals a selection of non-functioning buttons made to look like a Nintendo controller.

elago retails its R4 Apple TV remote case for $15.

I’ve always been a fan of elago products, primarily because it’s very much a what you see is what you get company. Since most of its products are made of silicone, the cases, in particular, are generally easy to install and offer a decent amount of protection.

This continues to ring true for the elago R4, which arrives to give your Apple TV remote a slim casing around the outside. There are designated cutouts for all of the buttons, microphones, and charging port. A wrist lanyard is also included, which is a nice touch if you’re playing a game.

As I’ve noted before, the Nintendo styling is a blast and fun way to spice up your setup. But ultimately, there’s no actual value there. I like that it also arrives in a handful of different colors, which gives you flexibility in your choice.

In the end, it’s a fun product that will add some extra protection if your Apple TV remote goes flying. It’s a fun way to make your Apple TV a little different.
