  • iPad Air and Netbook bag

    A new tablet is a good excuse for getting a new bag to carry it around. This simple but well designed bag from AmazonBasics is a good fit.

    The bag will fit any tablet or laptop up to 10 inches without wasting any room. It's constructed out of water-resistant neoprene with sturdy zippers. The two handles are thick and comfortable while lugging this little bag around town.

    It's the perfect size for throwing into a backpack or briefcase, for protection for those not wanting to hand-carry a small bag like this. You can still grab it when heading out of the cubicle for lunch or a meeting.

    The inside of the bag is one big, orange pocket for the tablet. Outside, there is one pocket perfectly sized for a phone or small accessories.

    The AmazonBasics iPad Air and Notebook bag is only $9.49 from the retailers. It has proven to be a very useful accessory for tablets.

  • Daffodil Smartphone and Tablet Stand

    Many tablet cases have an integrated stand for propping it up when it makes sense. Those who prefer keeping their tablet as thin and light as possible don't use a case, and thus lose the stand.

    This ingenious little stand folds up as small as possible, yet forms a universal stand when opened. It is sturdy enough to support the tablet in either portrait or landscape orientations, making it very versatile.

    It easily supports the iPad Air in portrait, so it should work for many tablets.

    It is currently available from Amazon for $4.45.

  • Universal Travel Case

    Frequent travellers should use a cable stash when on business trips to carry chargers, cables, and other small items. They provide a good way to keep essential support gear for gadgets, and are easily stashed in a corner of a carryon bag.

    This case is a good solution as it offers several pockets for keeping the suuport gear organized. It is well constructed and can fit a surprising amount of stuff in such a small package.

    The case is available from Amazon for $10.49.

  • Ummmm.

    Some of those items are over $10. perhaps small amounts, but the heading is wrong! And the last item... those headphones are $199. FAR from being a $10 gadget... But I do like that ipad/tablet carrying case.. Might make a great gift!
  • Keyboard

    The TaoTronics Mini Wireless keyboard was a good find. Might have to try that one out.

    Thank you very informative. Can't believe I'm saying this but I would rather give up my TV than my Kindle. I also just discovered clippings.io for my Kindle notes and Kindle4rss.com for sending blogs to my Kindle which makes it even better.
