Spring, and three new case choices for the flagship iPad, are in the air in this week’s edition.
LifeProof fre for the iPad Air
LifeProof has just announced its first ultra-rugged case option for the iPad Air. The waterproof fre can protect an iPad Air from up to 6.6 feet of water for up to an hour and drops of up to 4 feet. It is also dust-proof. The built-in screen protector helps to protect the display from scratches.
The fre retails for $109.99
, and it can be purchased through LifeProof or a number of other retailers now. Buyers can choose from a black or white version. A number of optional accessories, like a folio screen cover and LifeJacket, will be available soon.
And for a extra $20, buyers can subscribe to the Total Water Protection program
. Good for a year, if your tablet succumbs to water damage, LifeProof will replace the iPad Air for a small service fee.
Voombox-Travel from Divoom
With just a 3-inch circumference, the Voombox-Travel from Divoom is definitely a portable speaker option. Using Bluetooth 4.0 technology, the Voombox-Travel can play up to 6 hours of music without needing to be recharged. The built-in microphone even allows for hands-free calling. An included metal carabiner allows music lovers to attach the speaker to things like a backpack or purse.
Buyers can select from four different color choices – blue, red, green, or black. It can be purchased for $49.90 from Divoom now
Swivel Screen Portfolio for the iPad Air from FAVI
FAVI’s new Swivel Screen Portfolio is a reasonably priced way to turn your iPad Air into a MacBook clone. Featuring a detachable Bluetooth keyboard, the fully adjustable and rotating stand can put the tablet in just the right position for work or play. The built-in battery allows for up to 70 days of standby or 80 hours of continuous usage.
Available in silver, black, or gold, the Swivel Screen Portfolio costs just $39.99. It can be ordered now directly from FAVI’s site
3-Play from Grace Digital
The unique 3-Play from Grace Digital allows up to three Bluetooth devices to connect to any stereo, powered speakers, or car audio system. There’s no need to pair and unpair devices, just hit play to start the music. The 3-Play itself can remember up to seven different devices and can play music for up to 10 hours without needing to be recharged. It can also be powered with a micro-USB cable.
The 3-Play is $99.99
and can be ordered now from Amazon.com
PUMP HD Sportsbuds from BlueAnt
An IP-67 rated set of wireless Bluetooth earbuds, the PUMP HD Sportsbuds are designed for pretty much any activity under extreme conditions. Along with being waterproof in up to 3 feet of water for 30 minutes, the earbuds are coated with Teflon to repel any liquid. The rechargeable battery can go for up to eight hours of music playback before needing to be recharged. And BlueAnt promises high-quality sound thanks to 12.5mm diameter drivers and Mylar composite diaphragms.
Available in black or green, the Sportbuds retail for $129.95 and can be ordered through Apple or BlueAnt’s site
Multi-Angle DODOcase for the iPad Air, iPad mini
While the handmade DODOcase is one of my favorite ways to protect an iPad or iPad mini, the company has just introduced an even more useful multi-angle version of the folio. The case comes with three preset angles while leather grip tabs provide a huge number of possible positions, up to 90 degrees.
You can order a multi-angle case for both the iPad Air and both generations of the iPad mini starting at $89.95. More information can be found on the DODOcase site now
