Choosing the right case for your iPad is most definitely not a one-size-fits-all solution. At TCS, with our customers ranging from schools to cruise lines and construction companies, we are well-aware that different companies need different kinds of protection with different features for their devices. For this blog, I’m going to share with you what we recommend for iPads– we’ll get into chromebooks and laptops another day.

We’ve all been there– we all know the slight heart attack that occurs when we’ve dropped our phone or tablet and we’re just hoping our case held up its end of the deal. That slight heart attack can be almost completely avoided with a quality case. So, I figured I’d share some companies and cases that we recommend to our customers and let you decide what works best for you. We even throw in a Brenthaven case in our ProTech Infinity warranty plan because we’re certain your device will be protected!

 

 

Edge Bounce Case for 10.2-inch iPad (7th Gen and 8th Gen) by Brenthaven

Features:

  • – Asset tag window and serial number visibility
  • – Protective underlay to prevent scratches
  • – Less than 1″ thick – fits most charge carts
  • – Drop tested to exceed Military Drop-Test Standards (MIL-STD-810G)
  • – Handle also acts as stand for viewing and typing modes

 

What they have to say about it– ‘The Edge Bounce Case for 10.2-inch iPad (7th Gen and 8th Gen) is designed for those students that need a little extra protection when it comes to their devices. It’s designed for early elementary classrooms with new and improved design elements that will help combat the K-12 environment. This case offers a large, easy-to-position handle which doubles as a viewing stand, an enlarged asset tagging window, and optimized Crumple Zone Corners.’ 

What I have to say about it–  I was extremely skeptical when Holly mentioned on our latest episode of Between Two Tablets that this case could be tossed down a hallway and still protect the device. Well, check out our post demonstrating a true drop test with it. You’ll see this thing really can take a true beating and still protect your iPad. We give this one a big thumbs up.
