Here is part 3 of the WeKreat Bento review by my friend Joyce. As I mentioned in a different review, she’s a new iPad 2 user. She has given the Bento a very thorough evaluation. I had tested this out previously with the iPad 1.



Review: WeKreat Bento Part 2 of 3 (iPad 1)

I’m going to get right into it. As I stated before, it is compatible with the iPad 2 and 1.

The iPad 1 can be placed in this battery pack in the glass down position. It sits in there well, just like the Zaggmate. Your iPad does need to be naked.
