  • New Trent iCarrier Dual Port Charger

    If you want more power than the iCurve Dual Charger offers then you need to take a look at New Trent's iCarrier Dual Port Charger. Here's a battery pack that offers a whopping 11,000 mAh of power, enough power to charge the new iPad 3 from totally flat to 70 percent charge, or fully charge your iPhone 4S a whopping six times!

    Despite the huge battery capacity, the device will still fit comfortably into your pocket when you're out and about.

    Price: $89.95

  • Griffin PowerJolt Micro

    If you spend a lot of time on the road then it's a good idea to have a way to keep your iDevices charged up while you're in your car. The best in-car charger that I've come across for the iPhone and iPad is the Griffin PowerJolt Micro.

    This is a tiny device (it looks almost comically small), but don't let the size fool you! It can deliver a massive 10 Watts of power from a 12 Volt vehicle power outlet, enough to charge even the massive battery built into the iPad 3.

    This is simply an awesome bit of kit!

    Price: $24.99

  • Sony RDP-X500IP

    One of the best speaker dock for the iPhone, iPod and the iPad is manufactured by an unlikely company - Sony. The Sony RDP-X500IP is a premium speaker dock that offers booming bass and crisp, clear highs thanks to the built-in subwoofer and groundbreaking damperless speakers.

    What's unique about the RDP-X500IP is that the dock is built not only to fit the iPhone of the iPod, but it will also accept the iPad.

    It can be a little fiddly to get your iPad into the dock the first few times, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature. Despite my initial concerns that the arrangement would be flimsy, it actually holds your precious iDevice securely.

    Price: $299.99

  • iPad Smart Cover

    In regards to the iPad Smart Cover, as my wife calls it the 'Not So Smart Cover', if you accidentally pick up the iPad by the cover, the magnets are not strong enough to keep the two connected and the iPad will drop. In my case the iPad screen cracked and was no longer operational. I thought I was a careful person, but obviously not enough for this case.
