Plinth - The Ultimate Universal Tablet Stand - Opened And Closed View
Plinth is a minimalist, universal tablet stand designed to make your life easier at home, at the office and while on the go! The Plinth is a truly universal device and works with all iPad models, Android and Windows phones and tablets, Kindle, iPhone – with or without cases. Not bigger than an iPhone 4, the Plinth stays quiet in your pocket, bag or tablet sleeve waiting to help you when you need it. Once you’re ready to fix your tablet into a more convenient reading or working position, the Plinth deploys with a touch of a button and is ready to offer a more comfortable and ergonomic position in less than a second – check out the video for a full demo on how it works.

I used the Plinth for about two days and I find a perfect mix between portability and usability. Big enough to comfortably and securely hold a 10.1-in tablet, while small enough to fit in your jeans pocket (literally), the Plinth is one of the most convenient tablet stands I came across. Not only that, but, as my regular PC is a small 11.6-in laptop, I used the Plinth as a laptop stand for these two days and it worked out perfectly. On the lowest angle position, the Plinth allowed me to raise my laptop to about 3-4-in (that’s about 10-12 cm), just what I needed for a more comfortable working position and better heat dissipation.

The Plinth is available in 4 color variations (graphite/grey, graphite/teal, white/grey, white/green) and will set you back $32 US, which, given it ingenious design and increased portability it’s a very reasonable price. Check it out …

The iPad Air 2 Bluetooth Keyboard Case from Brando.com is a convenient way to protect your iPad and always have with you a keyboard to help you better play, write emails or simply transform your tablet into a laptop and accomplish your daily stuff.

The Bluetooth keyboard case is designed for iPad Air 2, but it’s works very well with the first generation of iPad as well and can be used as external keyboard even with Android or Windows devices (anything that supports Bluetooth connectivity).
Actually, in this video review, I am using an iPad Air 1 and, as you see, it’s a perfect fit. The case comes with a full qwerty keyboard and a bunch of dedicated keys to control the most used iPad functions such as volume, settings, screen brightness music playlist controls and copy/paste options. The case connects to your iPad via Bluetooth 3.0 (there are no wires to connect), sports a 350mAh internal rechargeable battery that allows up to 140 hours of uninterrupted usage on a 5 hours full charge, incorporates a desk stand and is available in three colors – Silver, Gold and Gray.

I used the iPad Keyboard Case for about 1.5 weeks and, even though I am not a big fan of using external keyboards and mice on tablets, I must admit it turned out useful more times than I was expecting! Being able to type a long email on my tablet was a actually cool …

The iPad Air Bluetooth Keyboard Case is available for $39 US. Check it out for more info …

BlueLounge Sanctuary4 Desk Charging Station On Shelf Charging iPhone And Tablet
With so many smartphones and tablets in a modern family home (not even mentioning smartwatches, Bluetooth headsets, digital cameras, etc…), finding a free charging spot for your device it’s not an easy job! Sometimes, I even feel charging a phone is like a contagious disease … as soon as you plug in your device, someone always appears from nowhere … “Can I plug mine for 5 min only, than it’s all yours? Please … Please…“!

Of course, you can use multiple chargers like everybody else does, but again … if your family is anything like mine, no one is ever unplugging the chargers and store them away of sight. And seeing every electrical plug around crowded with chargers it’s not a lot better, isn’t it?

ALSO CHECK the Orico 4, the Griffin PowerDock 5 and the Mahogany Charging Station we featured earlier.

This is where desk charging stations like the BlueLounge Sanctuary4 come into the game to fix the charging management issue! The Sanctuary4 is a cool Appleish style squared charging box that features 4 USB charging ports (total output of 4Amps), rubberized device tray and an adjustable tablet stand for charging and movie watching. The device can charge up to 4 smartphones or two tablets at the same time and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, Android devices and any other USB powered gadget.
