Last week we got a special deliver from Griffin, a company specialized in accessories and complementary equipment for iPod, iPhone and iPad. We had the chance to test three items related to the iPad: the Stylus pointer, the Tablet Stand support and the Power Jolt SE charger.
It’s easy to fully master the use of Stylus after a few hours of practice. Its soft rubber tip is designed to mimic a human finger, although it offers much more precision and control than using your own hands. That goes without saying what a great advantage it is to finally have your screen free of fingerprints and smudges.
We tested it using the Sketchbook Pro for iPad, having had only a few problems with it. For instance, you may face a hard time trying to continue a trace you just dropped, specially when you’re still not used to it. Obtaining stroke variations by applying more or less pressure onto the screen is also impossible – which is most likely due to an iPad’s fault. In addition, you should avoid drawing as you would on paper, that is supporting your hand on the screen, because it causes the program to zoon in and open its menus. Despite these little discomforts, Stylus provides a great experience!
Tablet Stand support
It’s a simple support that fulfills its duty just like it should: discretely. The resistant structure offers support for tablets ranging from 7” to 10”, in either portrait or landscape view. Shame it doesn’t have more options for opening and changing inclination, which is desirable for those who uses the iPad for multiple tasks.
Power Jolt SE car charger
This is a 10 watt car charger for iPad, iPhone and iPod. It’s quite useful, specially if you’re one of those who needs the iPad all the time. It fits into your car’s 12 volt accessory outlet.
