The New Trent Airbender Mini

If you want to play rough with your Apple iPad Mini, this case is game. Drop it in the rain, the mud, the rubble of the construction site where you’re building your new shopping emporium, the New Trent Airbender Mini case is practically bullet-proof.

The water-resistant, dirt and shockproof rubberized case comes with an integrated screen protector, which shields without sacrificing touch screen sensitivity. Although easily accessible, all external ports are sealed for extra protection. The removable keyboard comes with a built-in battery which lasts for about five hours with continuous typing. The integrated Bluetooth keyboard’s Lilliputian dimensions may take some getting used to, but the integrated iOS short keys provide good functionality once you’ve got the hang of them. The wireless 2.0 Bluetooth auto-connects whenever you turn your device on. The Airbender boasts a unique 360-degree rotating “arm” design, which allows you to adjust the screen for both horizontal and vertical viewing.

Our only issue? It’s quite bulky and heavy, doubling the weight of the iPad Mini. Still, it’s hard to beat this product in terms of functionality and price, and it makes a great gift for the techie in your life. So whether you’re up against foul weather or the terrible twos, nothing is getting through the Airbender.
