Who says all an iPad cover does is keep your tablet protected from scratches and dust? Not the case with the Kensington PowerBack, which throws in a backup battery and a kickstand to go with its iPad-casing duties.
Despite measuring a sleek 1.6 x 9.4 x 13.8 inches, the accessory manages to cram in a 4,400 mAh battery module onboard, feeding your tablet an extra 5 hours of use. It also includes a microUSB charge and sync port, allowing you to connect your iPad to a computer without requiring an extra dock.
The Kensington PowerBack case has a soft-touch finish, affording you comfortable use, while offering ample protection. A very useful kickstand can be pulled out of the rear side, which you can use to prop the iPad up at three positions - landscape viewing, portrait viewing and typing mode. Other features include LED gauges on the bottom of the case (to clue you in to how much charge is left) and a speaker deflector for unimpeded sound.
Overall, it sounds like a pretty solid all-in-one, which, somehow, manages not to bulk up your iPad the way extra batteries normally would. Price is a bit steep at $130, but the versatility should make it worth every penny.
