Acme Made Charge™ for iPhone 6

CaptureAcme Made sent us this nifty little case for the iPhone 6 (also comes for the 6 Plus). It’s called Charge™, but it is not a case that will charge your phone. Instead, it has a kickstand that comes out(the red part). Underneath the kickstand lies the secret to the case- a little Lightning to USB cable that snaps out, so you can hook your phone into a USB port.

I suppose this could be useful if you have your laptop with you, and you don’t want to forget your USB connecting cable. The world might be a better place if there were USB ports in all electrical outlets, of course.

CaptureBut in the meantime, unless you have your computer with you, you will have a hard time finding a place to plug this into, I think. I could see the usefulness of having this cord hiding in your case if you are always misplacing your charging cord.

The case itself is an impact resistant, polycarbonate, and the kickstand allows you to view your phone while it’s charging in both portrait and landscape mode.

You can purchase Charge™ for $49.95 on the Acme Made website.

Ergo Book Sling for iPad Air

Ergo iPad CaseWe received the Ergo Book Sling for iPad Air from Acme Made to review. If you like to use your iPad while walking around, you definitely want to look into this product!

The Ergo Book Sling has an adjustable/removable strap that allows you to carry your iPad like a purse (or a Murse), and you don’t even have to take it all the way out to use it while you are strolling along. You can simply slide your device out a bit if you need to take a picture, or you can rotate it using the QuickSpin 360™ feature to view your tablet in a landscape view. There is a pocket to carry credit cards or other items- so you don’t even have to carry a separate wallet- perfect for the person always on the go. I would exercise caution, though, and not try to walk while using your device, or you could end up like that person who fell in the mall fountain while walking and texting.

When you are not wearing it to use your iPad on the go, you can detach the straps, and the Ergo book sling folds to become a stand for the device- which can also be viewed in a horizontal or vertical position. The case comes in a super slim design and has a smooth and stain-resistant outer shell. You can also buy it in a size for your iPad Mini. Note that it will not hold an iPad Air 2, and they currently have no plans to make one for that size, but may reconsider if there is a high enough demand.

The Ergo Book Sling for iPad Air is available for purchase for $79.95 on AcmeMade’s site and also in the Apple store.
