Well, we sure have a lot of great products from ZAGG, just like we did last year. This time, we have some more products to try out, and I am more than thrilled.
ZAGG Gear4 Orlando case for the 10.2-inch iPad Review
I suppose that I could use “cute” as a descriptor for the Orlando case for the iPad. I mean, I really can’t imagine an adult using it (see video for more looks).
I mean, it has a cute character with sunglasses on it, and these foldable arms. Yes, it gives it standing capability for landscape mode capability like watching videos. And these days, kids are always watching vids on iPads.
Not only does the Orlando create a stand for the iPad, but it gives protection, up to 6.5 feet (2 meters) of drop. Part of that is due to its D30 pliable and flexible material.
If the Orlando is something that you want, head on over to the ZAGG site and pay $39.99 for it.
ZAGG Pro Keys for the iPad Air Review
This is, of course, one of those cool keyboards made for the iPad, and the Pro Keys looked tricky to install, but thanks to the power of magnets and Bluetooth, you have a keyboard for your iPad, as well as a trackpad.
They keyboard is very light, not adding much real estate to the iPad Air. It is very cool that there is a place to hold a stylus on this guy thanks to this magnetic strip in back.
I’m not certain what else that I can say to praise this Pro Keys, but it has some other cool features like a back-lit keyboard, multi-device pairing, as well as a long-lasting battery.
If you like, head on over to the ZAGG site and lay down $109.99 for it.
ZAGG Mophie Wireless Charging Hub Review
All right, we are now in Mophie territory, full of power and energy charging capability. This is the wireless charging hub, and at this point, you know the drill for wireless charging technology. You know, you put your Qi-enabled product on it, and it charges up whatever you got.
In this case, it does 10W wireless charging, and it also does 20W USB-C PD Fast Charging as well. Oh yes, it also has a 12W USB A Charging port, a 20W USB-C Charging Port, and a Quick-Charge 18W USB-A port. So yes, that is four devices that you can charge on this thing at any given time. I’m having a hard time figuring out any product that is similar, honestly.
If this is something that you want, head on down to the ZAGG site and lay down $69.99 for it.
ZAGG Mophie Powerstation Go Flashlight Review
And now we get to the Mophie Powerstation Go Flashlight. I will have to say that I have seen something like this before, like with the JumpStart. You probably know how these work: you get a flashlight that is very bright, and it can also jumpstart your car.
The Powerstation Go Flashlight has an incredibly bright LED bulb, and it also has this very bright side light or work light that can shine red for emergencies. Unlike other kinds of flashlights, it has an indicator light so you can see how much power is in it.
So yes, if your car won’t start in a dark place, you can take out your flashlight and jumpstart your car. I’ve never been in a position where I had to use this, but items like the Powerstation Go Flashlight are really needed.
If you need it, you can get it on the ZAGG site for $119.95.
ZAGG Mophie Wireless Charging Stand+ Review
Of course, it is a great idea to have any kind of wireless charger hanging around, so you might as well use one that can charge two devices wirelessly and simultaneously. Here is where the ZAGG Mophie Wireless Charging Stand+ comes in.
Not only can you do two wireless charging devices, but you can also do a third charging option with the USB A port. Speaking of things that are included, there is also a stand for the Apple Watch. So if you have the magnetic charger for the Apple Watch, you can get yourself the complete trifecta of Apple products.
If you want to get in on this, head over to the ZAGG website and pay $79.95 for it.
ZAGG Mophie Snap+ Wireless Stand
We are moving on to the Snap+ Wireless Stand, and it is essentially another wireless charging stand that is compatible with the MagSafe. Yes, there is that MagSafe word again.
It can do a fast charge of 15W, but I tried Qi charging with my Samsung Galaxy Note 20, and since it wouldn’t stick on there, I would have had to hold it on the sweet spot for charging. Fortunately, there is a snap adapter if your phone doesn’t accommodate MagSafe charging, like anything that is not an iPhone.
The ZAGG Snap+ Wireless Stand is available on the ZAGG website for a price of $59.95.
ZAGG Gear4 Crystal Palace Snap for iPhone 13 Pro Max Review
Okay, it is time to talk about the cases that I will review on this…review. We’ll start with the Crystal Palace Snap.
The Crystal Palace Snap is made with D3O Crystalex, which means it is very pro-transparency. Yeah, I always liked cases like this, but I really don’t know what D3O really means. You can see the big MagSafe sign on the back of it, which means it is made for some great wireless charging capability.
You can find the Crystal Palace Snap on the ZAGG site for many models of phone, but here is the one for the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
ZAGG Gear4 Vancouver Snap for iPhone 13 Pro Max Review
I remember seeing the ZAGG Gear4 Vancouver Snap at a recent virtual appointment with ZAGG. I remember asking why it is called the Vancouver, and I think it has to do with how case names are often named after places. Vancouver BC is home to 170 game development studios.
Yes, the Vancouver case is a case for gamers, and I am not certain what that really means. It does have 13 foot drop protection, and a lot of cool air vents and a textured surface. So yes, it is made for fitting comfortably in the hand while you game, because I guess gamers need that kind of action.
You can purchase the Vancouver Snap for about $59.99, and you can get the one for the iPhone 13 Pro Max one here.
ZAGG Gear4 Denali Snap for the iPhone 13
I am told that the Denali case is named “in honor of the tough and enduring indomitable spirit of the mountain”. It is also reinforced with D3O, which must be some kind of trademark of the company or something.
Whatever the case, you can’t argue with 16 feet of drop protection, and it has two layers (one hard, one soft). Both of these layers have some serious traction on them, made for some kind of a good grip, I suppose. The Denali is also MagSafe compatible, and it has antimicobial treatment.
If you want the Denali, head on over to the ZAGG website for the iPhone 13 model.
ZAGG Gear4 Santa Cruz Snap for the iPhone 13 Review
This Santa Cruz case (also named after a city) looks a lot like the Crystal Palace, and it is made of D3O tech. The Santa Cruz case is made to be very lightweight.
You can see the emphasis on its transparent nature on the Santa Cruz case, and this is good for 13 feet of drop protection. You can also see the MagSafe trademark on the back of it, which means you got some wireless charging thing going on.
You can purchase the Santa Cruz Snap for the iPhone 13 on the ZAGG website for $49.99.
ZAGG Gear4 Havana Case for the iPhone 13 Review
Once again, we have another case named for a city, and Havana is in Cuba! It is also made from D3O technology, and it is good for 10 feet worth of drop protection.
Like the other phones, it is lightweight, and even though it doesn’t have that MagSafe symbol on it, it is wireless charging compatible. The case itself is very pliable, and it has a lot of grooves in it. I guess it is to keep it in your hand, because, why else have them there?
You can find the Havana on the ZAGG website for a price of $29.99 on the iPhone 13.
ZAGG Gear4 Brooklyn Snap for the iPhone 13 Review
With a quick glance, you might think that this Brooklyn case is the Havana case. No, this is the New York city, and it is much harder than the Cuban city one.
The Brooklyn is made from the D3O Bio, a plant-based impact material, good for about 13 feet of drop protection. It has the usual features of antimicrobial traatment with MagSafe compatiblity.
If you want it, it is available in black, and…well, black, really. You can purchase it for about $59.99 on the ZAGG site.
ZAGG Gear4 Milan Snap for the iPhone 13 Review
We come to our last case to review from Gear4, and it is also named for a city. In this case, it is Milan, and this one isn’t so transparent.
Yes, it is semi-transparent as it can be seen through from one side, but is kind of painted on the other side. Other than that, it has the usual features like 13 feet of drop protection, MagSafe compatible, and has that antimicrobial treatment as well.
You can find the Milan on the ZAGG website for $49.99 in Rose color and Gold color.
ZAGG Kita for Nintendo Switch Review
So this is a ZAGG product made for the Nintendo Switch, and this would be the first time that I have reviewed a product for that. This is both a grip/case for the Switch, as well as a screen protector.
Yes, this is total protection, and the grip is made to clip into the Nintendo Switch. (Make a
As for the screen protector, it is part of the Invisible Shield family, and we’ll put it on.
If you want the Kita Grip for the Nintendo Switch, head on down to the ZAGG website and pay $39.99 for it.
