RichardSolo 1800 Smart Backup Battery

We all know the iPhone has very short battery life and for most of us that's a big issue. Now you can almost triple your iPhone battery life with Richard Solo's 1800 Smart Backup Battery. After using the 1800 for quite some time now, I was able to to get about two full charges out of it. The 1800 features a red laser pointer that is very mediocre but gets the job done if you actually need to point at something, as well as a bright and strong white led light that I found extremely usable. The 1800 battery has the same form factor as an iPhone and is very well built. To charge your iPhone or iPod, you simply connect the 1800 straight into the Dock Connector and a blue light indicates charging. Although there is no way of turning off the blue indicator light or the 1800 to stop charging your device. There is an On/Off switch on the back that only controls the laser and led light. You can use your iPhone or iPod while the 1800 is connected, however it's uncomfortable because of how that 1800 is directly attached making your device much longer.

The 1800 stays securely attached to your device. If you're not using a case with your iPhone, just attach the clear clip provided to get a stable tight connection between your iPhone and the 1800 Backup Battery. You can charge the 1800 Backup Battery by using the provided retractable USB cable with your computer or by plugging it into the wall charger. I would recommend the 1800 with cable version as it's a lot more comfortable and versatile. Richard Solo's 1800 Backup Battery is a great gadget to have. The Richard Solo 1800 Backup Battery only has a capacity of 1800mAh, which is somewhat pricy. With the 1800, included are iPhone/3GS adapters, a two-port USB car charger, ac wall charger and retractable USB cable. Price $69.95

Wrapsol Protection For iPad

Wrapsol scratch-proof protection are a great way to keep your iPad scratch-free and also keep the original anodized aluminum look with Wrapsol's matte protection films. Applying the Wrapsol protection onto the iPad takes some time but once you get it on it looks amazing. In the process I've managed to get a few air bubbles that I could not squeegee out. However, you do need to let your Wrapsol set for at least 24 hours. And once I did, all the air bubbles have disappeared leaving a smooth and clear surface. There is only one issue with the Wrapsol protection film I got for the iPad, It was not cut to fit correctly and I had a very hard time aligning it because of that. It turns out it was a little shorter on the bottom but that should be fixed by Wrapsol soon.

Wrapsol are currently the only company to offer a matte finish to their protection films which I personally love. If you would like a glossy and non-matte finish to your device, Wrapsol also offers the Wrapsol Ultra. A Wrapsol protection is a must for your iPad's backside to help keep that beautiful aluminum from scratches and scuffs. Wrapsols are made in the U.S.A. and come with a lifetime replacement warranty. Every Wrapsol protection kit includes a fantastic soft microfiber cloth, a non-marking flexible rubber squeegee and a liquid spray application solution. Price $34.95.

Incipio DermaSHOT Silicone Case for iPad

The DermaShot by Incipio for the iPad is a great and sleek looking silicone case with perfect curves and cuts. The DermaShot has the same exact look and construction as the 1337 iPad case by Incipio minus the added gaming grips. One big con to the DermaShot is it's very flimsy around the edges. Every time you would place your fingers on top of iPad's bezel with the DermaShot on, the edges will peel back making it very uncomfortable and annoying. The silicone is very soft and grippy and will not attract much lint. The DermaShot has the honeycomb-like insides to help keep itself very lightweight and with a thin form factor, allowing your iPad to be used with most carrying cases. Other than being a very flimsy silicone around the iPad's bezel, the DermaShot is a very comfortable case to hold with fantastic cutouts for all the ports and covered buttons. The Incipio DermaShot provides excellent scratch protection as well as minor drop and impact protection. The DermaShot is available in four colors and comes with a clear screen protector as well as a cleaning cloth. Price $34.99.

Macally MetroLPad

Macally's MetroLPad for the Apple iPad, is a hard protective shell case with a rubber silicone edge. The MetroLPad is lightweight and has a clear hard back with a grainy texture to it that shows off your iPad's back casing. There are a few cons about this case one being the rubber rim. It's very stiff and makes it a major pain to insert your iPad into the case itself, taking out your iPad is equally if not harder. Once you get your iPad into the MetroLPad, the rubber silicone does not evenly cover the iPad's aluminum bezel and giving it a bad front look. Using the MetroLPad, I did not notice any added grip by the rubber silicone edge. The MetroLPad does however give you great protection against scratches and minor low hight drops. Ports are fully accessible and buttons are easily responsive.  Also the MetroLPad has four clear little bumps in the middle of the back to help make your iPad stable if you wish to set it on a flat surface such as a table. Other than the very stiff and hard rubber rim, I found the MetroLPad to be a great hard shell case. I really hope Macally fixes this issue very soon. Price $29.99.

WaterField Slip Case

WaterField's Slip Case for the Apple iPad is a very simple yet affective protection solution. The Slip Case is a thin sleeve with an outer material that is water-proof to help protect your iPad from accidental coffee table spills and such. The Slip Case is very well padded with very smooth non-scrathing Ultrasuede. Also, the Slip Case features extra padding just for the iPad's screen with impact-resistant plastic. Inserting the iPad into the Slip Case is easy and smooth. Once your iPad is inside, it stays very secure and tight so no need to worry about your iPad falling out on it's own. However, after time I do see the Slip Case being stretched out after use and you will need to keep a close eye. Taking your iPad out of the Slip Case is just as easy as inserting it, the pull tab makes it very easy and quick to get your iPad out of the sleeve. WaterField claims the internal Ultrasuede lining to be screen cleaning, however that was not the case. So if you think the inside of a case will clean your iPad's screen think again! You will need to do so with a microfiber cloth and liquid e.g., Monster iClean or iKlear. The Slip Case is a very simple and sleek sleeve without any logos on the outside but with just one on the inside. WaterField offers the Slip Case in six different colors. Like all WaterField Designs products, the Slip Case is made in San Francisco, CA.  Price $29.00.

WaterField Indium Wallet

The Indium wallet by WaterField Designs is a very simple but striking wallet. It's very minimal and you only get two slots for a credit card or an I.D card, and a main pocket that can be used to store money or whatever you can fit inside, I was even able to fit my iPhone inside and it took pretty much all the space but that's just to give you an idea. The outside finish is some nylon material that makes up a great looking texture. The Indium is is one of the two styles WaterField offers, the other being part leather. The Indium has a pouch style design with one main zipper that makes it simple and easy to use for people who don't need a fancy wallet to carry 10 credit cards and just want something that isn't bulky, the WaterField wallets are made in beautiful San Francisco and are extremely well put together and I would say they will last a long time. The one i have here is the Taxi pattern, i love the color pattern! Price $22.

Meelectronics M6

The M6 are sound isolating earphones with a professional look and design. While the M6 do well in isolating outside noise, you will need to find the perfect fit in order to get the correct sound. The M6 sound is very similar to the Apple stock earphones with much better bass response. I found the M6 sounding a bit unclear and held back however they are a better alternative to the Apple stock earphones. The M6 are very lightweight and comfortable. The M6 are worn over the ear like most professional In-Ear Monitors and have a memory wire built into each side so that you can get a better and more comfortable secure fit. The overall build quality does not seem to be very durable for extensive use. With the M6, you will get a semi hard rounded carry case as well as a rubber wire organizer the you can use to wrap your cable around and four pairs of silicone ear tips. The M6 are available in a Clear, Black and Maroon colors. The M6 are not a bad choice for consumers with a lower budget but there are definitely other great choices out there.  Price $49.99.
