Next in our Series is the PixelSkin HD Wrap for iPad. This user is also an iPad 2 owner. The unedited review is below.



Power up your iPhone (or most anything else for that matter) with the Third Rail iPhone case!

image

 

 

The Third Rail slim case for the iPhone is an ingenious invention and perhaps one of my favorite portable charging solutions for the iPhone. Its versatility is a huge plus as is it’s minimalistic yet still, very protective design.

 

 

The Third Rail is indeed a slim, stylish and low-key option for a protective shield for the iPhone and as a stand-alone case by itself, would be worth considering. When you add to the equation, the fact that the Third Rail case is crafted to accept snap-on battery packs (as many as 6 of the ¼ inch deep, 1,250 mAh batteries can be stacked on) this case is hard to pass up! For anyone looking for a way to increase the time between having to plug your iPhone into a wall charger, while still keeping with the iPhone’s sleek and trim aesthetic, this is a case worth considering.



Why compromise when you can have it all with Seidio Cases?

image
Seidio makes so many cases that you really have no excuse not find the one you want. Belt clip holsters, battery packs, and more. But in the past, I've avoided rugged, bulky cases because they interfere with docking cradles. So I was really excited to see the assorted offerings from Sedio at last month's CE Week in New York City.



Cushi cushions your iPhone in style

image
Maybe you don't want to use a bulky case, or maybe you're already using the Apple Bumper on your iPhone. But suppose you still want to add some style to your iPhone. ID America has a neat approach, called the Cushi. It's a three dimensional adhesive cushioning pad that sticks to the back of your iPhone, but doesn't leave any residue when removed.



Caseinity's novel Cord-on-Board case ensures you always have a USB cable

image
It happens all the time. You need a USB cable to charge or sync your iPhone but you can't find one. Caseinity has come up with a novel approach, by including a short cable clipped to the interior of their case.


The case comes in white or black, although the short USB cable is white in either case. There is some added thickness, as you might imagine but it's not excessive and it incorporates a honeycomb protection layer, so you're getting a decent case with a nice extra.


Crystal Couture Cases are a cut above but at a price below other crystal cases

image

In the nearly four years I've been writing for iPhone life Magazine, I've never ever recommended a Swarovski style crystal iPhone case for several reasons. First, they end to be fragile as the crystals fall off, ruining the look, and second they tend to be very expensive, in the $100+ range. That becomes even more expensive when you consider it won't last long. So I was pleased to see, feel, and try the latest cases from Crystal Couture Cases at last month's CE Week in New York City.



Nexiom PowerSlate adds a ton of battery life, for iOS devices and laptops

image

There are a lot of external battery packs for the iPhone, fewer still for the power hungry iPad, and even fewer for laptops because of the non-standard plugs. So I was very excited to see the PowerSlate from Nexiom at CE Week in New York City last month.




Not only does this one device offer over 13,000mAh of power (almost ten times that of iPhone battery cases) it can provide power for an iPad, and even most laptops!



Speck iPad 3 Case Mini Review Series: MagFolio Luxe for iPad

image

Here’s another mini review in this series of the new iPad 3 Speck Cases. The below mini review is unedited and is from an iPad 2 user. (Additional photos at end.)

“The subject of today's review is the Speck MagFolio Luxe for iPad2/ iPad (3rd generation). The folio is sleek. The cradle fits the iPad perfectly and securely.

 

Due to the nature of the fresh, new leather, the iPad could easily slide through your hands. The closure is magnetized and does not provide a secure "snap" closing of the cover.

Hello there fellow travelers and adventurers! Welcome to my Special Summer Travel Series here at iPhone Life. Each week we’ve been taking a in-depth look at a wide variety of different apps, accessories and gear that make summer travel with our iDevices easier, more convenient, safer and more enjoyable.

 

This week we are featuring a product by the Lifeproof Company, makers of the best waterproof and rugged protection cases on the market. The LifeJacket by Lifeproof is a great invention that turns your already sturdy and dependable Lifeproof case into a floating, completely submersible, tractioned, highly shockproof (drop it from a 50 foot building and watch nothing happen) portable media and computing station.

 



Lastu adhesive covers for the iPhone add beauty that is more than skin deep

image
I love the juxtaposition of hi tech and old school elements, so the combination of a state of the art iPhone and real wood is right up my alley. Lastu offers both oak and walnut adhesive front and backs for the iPhone and can add to the attractiveness of an otherwise 'sterile' iPhone.
