Last fall, I had the opportunity to use the Alu Pen from Just-Mobile. Sine then there has been updates to it to include multiple vibrant colors as well as a Pen/Stand Combo. The link for the original pen review is at the end of this post, as there is no need to duplicate the same review twice for the pen itself. But what I am using now is the combo kit called the “AluPen and AluCube.”
As in the past Just-Mobile products, this kit comes packaged in a well presented manner as you can see in the pics. This kit includes the following items:
The folks at Mobile Cloth sent me over their screen cleaning tool called, “Mobile Cloth” to test out. This accessory comes in two sizes and has a special pattern that they call “Nubs.” “Each nub acts like hundreds of tiny suction cups to pull fingerprints smudges, and germs away from the surface of your device and into the cloth with one or two swipes.”
Don’t let the shortness of this review fool you, as I feel this is a pretty effective product.
AViiQ recently introduced a portable charging station that also adds organization to your mobile world. Wrapped up in a neat fabric case, you’ll find a wall outlet that plugs into a 4 USB hub. Three of these USB slots are powered via the wall plug. The fourth slot is USB data capable. In the hub itself, is a male end USB plug that unzips and can be attached to your computer. From there it’s a charge/data plug.
The case has various pockets that allow you to wrap up and stow away your cables. This keeps them organized and useful at the same time. In the last two weeks, I found that this worked very well for most of my devices.

Back in January, I reviewed the Geminus Genius iPad case for the iPad (links at bottom). In June, Mike Riley reviewed the version for the iPad 2.
Jovan Van Drielle, the creator of the Genius Case, was recently interviewed at IdeaMensch.
The CandyShell cases by Speck are one of my all time favorite cases made. I have tested them out for my iPad and own them for the iPod Touch and Galaxy Tab 7. But the only reason it has not been my day to day case for the iPad is the lack of front screen protection. That is why I always turn back to my folio type cases. I just tested out the perfect match with the CandyShell Wrap for iPad. I’m reviewing it with the original iPad but it’s also available for the iPad 2.
Do You like Captain America? Do you like listening to Music? Then I got something to show you. Coloud has a pair of Marvel Captain America headphones that work pretty well. These headphones have some cool marvel artwork on them and are adjustable, so they should fit most heads. These are basic headphones so they will not have a microphone or remote, but they sound pretty good. They are comfortable and fit very well on my ears. Their build seems pretty solid.
I have been trying out and using a product from Concord Keystone called the
ECO Solar / USB Power Pak. What intrigued me about this product was the possibility of powering up using Solar Power as an alternative energy source. How cool and useful is that?
The Power Pak is a 1500 mAH battery that is made for iPhone / iPod, or any other smaller device.
This may be of interest for college students wanting to save some cash while using their iPad.

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.
