Exactly how long term are you talking about?
Normal usage probably won't have the case constantly exposed. Plus,
assuming the case does get some kind of issue after some year of
exposure. You have probably dropped it, scratched it up in some way and
if its cheap enough, get a new one.. Recycle the old or what not.
Personally, I have never tested what happens after a soda bottle is
exposed to sunlight for very long periods of time. I have had experience
where they have been exposed to sunlight for days and I do not remember
any change in durability or coloration etc.
Maybe someone with real knowledge can tell us the limits of exposure /
usage for it?
