Eco-Flip case works as table top stand
Marware and Scosche have both announced new iPad accessories, including the Eco-Flip case and two new USB chargers. The new Eco-Flip leather case is the latest product from Marware, resembling the recently released Eco-Vue case. The Eco-Flip flips open vertically, allowing the top to be folded back, while the Eco-Vue opens from the side.
The new design allows the accessory to be used either a case, which protects the screen of the iPad, or as a low-angle stand. Features include an integrated hand strap for enhanced grip, along with a closure strap and fold-over tab to keep the iPad securely in place.
Scosche has added two new products to its line of iPad accessories, the reVIVE II Dual USB Home Charger and reVIVE II Dual USB Car Charger. Both devices feature a 2.1-amp USB port for charging the iPad, along with a 1-Amp USB port that can be used to charge other electronic devices.
In addition to the USB chargers, Scosche has also unveiled the kickBACK P1, a new shatterproof polycarbonate and rubber case for iPads. The protective accessory is also equipped with a locking kick stand that can be used for vertical or horizontal orientation. Unlike both chargers which are available now, the kickBACK is not planned for release until early summer.
The Eco-Flip can be found on Marware's website for $45 and comes in a black color. The two USB chargers can be purchased from Scosche and are priced at $24 for the car charger or $30 for the home version.
