Griffin Technology today announced the Survivor Slim for iPad Air. The new Survivor case is a sleeker updated version that provides the same protection as its predecessor, according to Griffin. The Survivor Air features a shatter-resistant shell with silicone bumper and a "touch-through" screen protector to keep your iPad's display scratch free. It also includes a built-in kickstand and flexible button / port covers to fend against dust and other debris. The Survivor for iPad Air is available now for $79.99. It is available in black only.
Retailers and accessory makers will be looking to move inventory as we get closer to the release of the second-generation iPad Air and third-generation iPad mini. This is a great time for bargain shoppers who are looking to upgrade their Apple tablet or accessories. Make sure you bookmark our iPad Air deals page and follow us @TheiPadGuide for future sales.
Griffin Technology is offering 25% off its Survivor Custom Case for the iPad mini. Customers can choose the color of the case's silicone wrap, Polycarbonate shell and built-in stand. The case is military-spec designed and meets all the requirements outlined in the US Department of Defense MIL-STD-810, according to Griffin. It promises to deflect "wind and rain" and protect against drops on concrete surfaces from 6'/1.8 m high.
Griffin Technology is holding another site wide sale. This time the accessory maker is offering 20% off all its products in celebration of Mother's Day. This deal ends on April 27, 2014.
Griffin offers a wide variety of iPad, iPad mini and iPhone accessories. Here's a quick look at some of their noteworthy iPad cases. Most of these cases are available for the second generation iPad and later, including the iPad Air and iPad mini.
Griffin Technology's Airstrap Case for the iPad Air is now 30% off when you use the promo code AIRSTRAP during checkout. The promotion starts today and is only available through Griffintechnology.com. This offer ends on Saturday (04/19/14), so make sure you take advantage of it now.
The Airstrap Case for the iPad Air features a built-in hand strap that allows you to hold your tablet with one hand. This is great for reading or when using your iPad on the go, since it frees up one hand for navigating the display. The case is a thick molded frame that protects your iPad from edge-to-edge, and it also includes contoured edges for an easier grip.
Griffin Technology is doing a little spring cleaning by offering 80% off of its DreamStand and PowerDock Dual chargers for iOS devices.
The DreamStand holds your iPad in both portrait and landscape orientation so you can easily watch movies or read while charging your tablet. The Dreamstand also features a USB port for charging a second device, and it accommodates most iPad cases. You can nab the DreamStand for the iPad 2 or 3 for only $10 via GriffinTecnology.com.
If you haven't embraced third-party iOS controllers, or they're just too expensive for you to make the plunge, Griffin Technology has released an affordable iPad Air case geared towards gamers. The Survivor Play was designed to protect from accidental drops and gamer rage using guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Defense (in MIL-STD-810G) for impact and vibration control.
The Survivor Play features thick sides for "play-all-day" grip and extra silicone padded corners to defend against accidental bumps. The case also includes a stiff ABS plastic skeleton which Griffin describes as a "bulletproof vest for your iPad". Other features include an adjustable shoulder strap and the standard raised button covers and cutouts for access to all the important ports.
Griffin Technology announced today that its portable StudioConnect for the iPad and PowerMate jog dial will both be receiving an update in 2014. Both products will be showcased at CES in Las Vegas, Nevada. The international electronics and technology trade show runs from January 7 to January 10.
The StudioConnect has been upgraded with a pair of XLR inputs, USB and five-pin MIDI support, and is now compatible with both 30-pin and Lightning equipped iPads. The StudioConnect HD will be available for $200 this fall.
Accessory maker Griffin Technology is offering 20% off its iPad Air and iPad mini cases over the weekend. The sale has already started and ends on 11/10/13. You can take advantage of this deal by visiting GriffinTechnology.com and entering the promo code NEWIPAD20 at check-out.
Griffin offers a variety of iPad Air cases starting at $29.99, and keyboard / cases starting at $79.99. The Slim Keyboard Folio features an envelope-style flap that holds your iPad Air and Bluetooth keyboard, which connects wirelessly to your iPad. The keyboard includes its own micro-USB charging cable, and sports the familiar Mac OS key layout.
A lot of all-in-one chargers made their debut at CES earlier this year, but Griffin Techonology's PowerDock 5 made the biggest impression on iOS users. The space-saving charging station can safely charge up to five devices at once, while helping keep homes and small offices clutter free. The PowerDock's individual charging bays are big enough to hold any iOS device and can accommodate almost any iOS case.
The entire PowerDock 5 charging station only occupies as much room as a single iPad, and it can also charge any USB-chargeable device, not just Apple products. This makes it a great accessory for families or small offices who need to charge multiple tablets or smartphones at the same time.
Griffin Technologies has just made traveling long distances even more bearable thanks to its SkyView travel tray mount for mobile devices. The SkyView clips into the latch of most seat-back tray tables so you don't have to hold your smartphone or e-reader on long trips. The mount also works as a stand on your tray table, and is compatible with most mobile compact devices thanks to its adjustable cradle grips. The SkyView can be used on airplanes, trains or buses, as long as they provide personal tray tables for passengers.
The SkyView supports all of Apple's smartphones and the iPad mini. It can also hold compact e-readers and Samsung smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S4. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to support larger tablets like the iPad or the Samsung Galaxy Tab. You can see a list of compatible devices here.
