I can only confirm all the very positive feedbacks that have been already provided by other reviewers. In summary: - Very good design with high quality materials that respect the exclusive design of the iPad - 3 positions kickstand very efficient in all positions - True additional 5 hours battery life
I have also appreciated the small built-in speaker that reveals to be extremely usefull in several usages (the ipad build-in speaker being rather poor quality): - displaying photo diaporama with a music track - veiwing the News during the breakfast - watching cooking videos with the iPad in the kictchen
Finaly my last comments is related to the main usage of this PowerBack. To my point of vue the Kensington additional battery live has limited interest while staying at home, as the original iPad 10hours battery life + the presence of plugs in the home allow a "heavy" daily usage. A second restriction for the PowerBack usage at home...
I've had the iPad since launch day and I had been waiting for a product that incorporated the battery in the case. Several options are out there but I've used Kensington security products for years and have always been satisfied with their build quality.
A few points to note that I've learned after purchase and four full workday uses to date:
- I was surprised that upon opening the PowerBack, that the case is fully charged and ready to go. This is a rare find and something that Kensington doesn't even mention as a feature. This worked great for me as I was not headed to a fixed location after receiving the PowerBack so I didn't have to be concerned about that first charge and used it right out of the box.
- I was replacing a suede-like folio style iPad case with this PowerBack one so I knew that the protection would be different but there is absolutely no front glass protection with using this case. This isn't a surprise but I would have thought that...
Battery calendar life is not yet an issue with the iPad but will be in time. All batteries are life limited items, and that life depends on use and abuse. This case not only extends the battery run time, but will go a long to extending the calendar life of the iPad's internal battery. The power back only uses the iPad battery once its own is depleted, and only charges the iPad battery once it drops below 90% state of charge. Both are excellent design features affording the best possible battery management strategy.
The powerback interfaces to the outside world via a micro USB port, something the iPad should have done. It has three stand options - Portrait, Landscape and Typing. The Apple logo is left uncovered, not for aesthetic reasons but to keep clear the WiFi antenna. This "hole" allows to iPad to be comfortably held in one hand as a bonus.
The finish quality is first class and unless one intends to replace the iPad every few years this is surely a wise...
