I have just recently had the pleasure of purchasing one of these cases and I somewhat enjoy it. I say “somewhat” because unless I have a defective case the battery doesn’t maintain a charge as long as quoted. Also, mine takes longer to charge than they hour the packaging says it does. Along the side are four blue lights that are said to indicate battery percentage. On mine, immediately after removing charging cable the 1% indicator lights up, yet the case continues to. Barge for roughly 5 hours. The case is a great idea if you happen to grab one that works. Included along with the case is a standard USB cable for charging and syncing.

REVIEW: Incipio Crystal Feather Slim IPhone 4/4S case

Standard

Brand: Incipio
Price: $24.99

The Incipio feather ultralight hard shell case available for iPhone 4 and 4S is just what you’d expect. If you remember or owned a Case-Mate “Barely There” case for previous gen iPhones, then you’ll like this case. It’s ultra thin and light weight. While its not gonna prevent your iphone from shattering should you drop it but it will prevent scratches on the back of the iPhone. Remember that while the iPhone 4/4S glass itself is scratch proof, the oleophobic coating isn’t. This is a recommended buy for those that want an iPhone case that keeps the phone thin and lightweight and not at all bulky like other cases!

REVIEW: Speck Candyshell ipad case

Standard



Product: Speck Candyshell Case
Manufacturer: Speck
Price: $31.99 usd

This Speck Candyshell iPad case comes highly recomended! The case comes in 5 different colors and retails for around $32. Just like the Candyshell cases for iphones and iPod touches, the outter shell is glossy plastic with a rubber coating inside. The two flaws ive found is the case is only a little thick and therefor adds weight to the iPad. Another is the rubber button covers for the volume buttons and the sleep awake button are a littler tougher to press. there are cut-outs for the mic, headphone port, mute switch, speaker, and a piece of the case lifts up giving access to the 30 pin connecter for a dock or the apple keyboard. One flaw that is not the fault of Speck or the case is you can’t see the Apple logo on the back so therefor no one but you would know your on an iPad!

REVIEW: Apple iPad Case/Stand

Standard

Product: Apple iPad Case
Price: $39.99 USD
Designer: Apple

When I went to my local Best Buy to purchase my iPad a few weeks ago I immediately knew I’d be needing a case or stand for it. Among the available inventory at said Best Buy was this monstrosity! With average use you’ll find that it is very sensitive to scuff marks and dirt. Granted it is very easy to get rid of the offensive marks with a dap rag or towel but, who wants to clean their case everyday?! The entire case, minus the area where the back of the iPad rests inside the case, is covered in some kind of silky material. Where the iPad is placed is a tight enough squeeze to hold your iPad in place yet it makes it hard for easy removal. So, for those of us that would casually use this product, this feature is not a plus! Positive feature? Hmm…, if you bought your iPad to only use as an ePhoto frame the ability to stand it on it’s spine as pictured is great. If you use your iPad to watch various types of media standing it on it’s spine or resting it on it’s back would create an odd viewing angle. Unless your a child, teens and adults of average height would tower above the product’s placement on a flat surface causing neck strain. Now, if you use your iPad for various word editing functions and you plan on resting it in your lap the Apple case is perfect for adding an extra angle for desired comfort. If you were thinking of purchasing this case, don’t, the cons far outweigh the pros!
