The Apple iPad is one of the coolest tech gadgets of the year. The popular tablet PC’s are popping up in board rooms and dormitories across the world, as everyone is getting in on the versatility the devices presents. Of course, what good is a device without having quality accessories to make it easier and better to use? While there is a relative ocean of iPad accessories out there, here are eight of the top accessories for the Apple iPad:
Apple iPad Case
The Apple iPad Case securely holds the iPad, and the soft interior with reinforced sides offer maximum protection for the tech owner on the go. Better yet, the design of this case allows for access to the headphone jack, dock port, and the on/off button without having to remove the tablet from the case. This is one of the top iPad cases on the market, which is not really a surprise because Apple made it. The Apple iPad Case is available wherever the iPad is sold, such as Best Buy or bestbuy.com for $39.99.
The Targus Stylus provides an exceptional means of interaction with the iPad. It provides an accurate interface, while still maintaining a traditional pencil like grip. The durable soft rubber tip is safe for the screen of the iPad as well. Plus, the Targus Stylus works well with a variety of programs and applications many iPad owners already have. The Targus Stylus is available from Best Buy for $17.99.
Apple iPad Digital Camera Connector Kit
For $29.99 from Best Buy, iPad owners can enjoy the convenience of transferring photos and videos directly to their iPad from their digital camera or Secure Digital (SD) memory card. The Apple iPad Digital camera Connector Kit comes with all the necessary hardware to complete the connection, short of the USB cable to connect the camera so buyers should be make sure the cable that came with their camera is handy. This is a great accessory that lets users view and store pictures without having to stop by their PC to make the transfer.
Speck ShieldView Screen Protectors for Apple iPad
The screen of the iPad is perhaps the most important component to the device, and protecting it is a must. The Speck Shield View Screen Protectors offer a static-cling method of staying in place without the bubbles and air pockets to which many gadget owners have become accustomed. The Speck ShieldView Screen Protectors are available in several different technology stores and centers, like Best Buy for $29.99 for a package of two.
Apple Dock for Apple iPad
The Apple Dock for the iPad is a great way for owners to turn the iPad into a useful item while syncing and charging the device at their desk. The dock allows for the device to be stood upright while being charged, which turns the iPad into an even more useful pieced of technology. The Apple Dock for iPad is available wherever iPad’s are sold, like Best Buy for $29.99.
Dock Connector to VGA Adapter for Apple iPad
The Apple Dock Connector to VGA Adapter is almost a must for any business oriented individual that uses the iPad for presentations. The connector attaches to the dock connector port of the iPad, which then allows for the iPad to be connected to any TV, projector, or any device with a VGA port. While the unit is not expensive, $29.99 from Best Buy, it is a specialized type of accessory since not everyone will need to hook their iPad directly to their television or a projector.
Apple Keyboard Dock for iPad
For $69.99 from Best Buy, the Apple Keyboard Dock for the iPad is one of the handiest accessories around. The Keyboard Dock turns the iPad into a nice workstation, which speeds data entry thanks to the traditional keyboard. But data entry is not the only benefit to this little gizmo, as the unit functions as a charger for the iPad as well. This is a great accessory that really beefs up the applications of the iPad.
Apple USB Power Adapter
While the Apple iPad does pretty well as far as battery life is concerned, users never want to be caught low on power. The Apple USB Power Adapter allows users to recharge their devices with only a regular power outlet. Of course one end plugs directly into the power outlet, and the other end plugs via adapter directly to the dock connector of the iPad. This is a great accessory for anyone who uses their iPad on the go.
