At B&H, we are constantly exposed to innovative new products that help make life and work a little easier, whether you’re shooting photos, videos, making music or just relaxing at home. The most memorable aspects of this equipment often lie in the little details.
Docking speakers are great if the connector on your smart phone or tablet fits, but if you have the newest iPhone or iPad or a non-Apple device, compatibility is more likely to come through a wireless protocol called Bluetooth (BT). Many source players including notebook computers, phones and tablets have a BT transmitter built in.
We’ve all got them: those large, bulky, thick bricks of plastic battery chargers. Or a drawer full of charging cables, with various plugs compatible with dozens of devices, both new and old. They’re bland, uninspired, and kept hidden—only brought out to perform their task, then tucked away again.
Every time Apple announces a new iPhone, iPod or iPad, there are dozens of manufacturers who subsequently release a variety of accessories to go with the latest device. These accessories range from cases, folios and stands to speakers, mounts and charging devices.
Stocking stuffers don’t have to be expensive, especially if you’re catering to someone who is iPad-smitten. Though this product roundup ranges from the practical to the entertaining, every accessory here expands the ways you can use an iPad or iPad 2. Some of these accessories are unusual, too.
