MashButtons gets Props Power Case to keep iPad charged and Stylish

I have seen a number of battery cases for the various iPhones but this next one is taking it a step further with a Power Case for the iPad...and the mini. Digital Treasures has provided me with the Props Power Case for the iPad 2, 3, and 4, a portfolio design with a 12,000 mAh battery in the cover. That’s right, no skimping on power here. Props folds open like a book and the interior is wrapped in a non slip grip to stand in landscape mode at a wide range of angles. The outside is bound with black “leather”, red threading, and closes with a magnetic clasp.
Now that the props is on my pad, I plan on ditching my previous portfolio case. It isn’t much thicker than my old folio but with 12,000 mAh of charge, it comes in handy in case of emergencies. Emergency is plural because most phone charger cases come equipped with 1700 mAh, so you can recharge your iPad or your entire family’s phones. With great power comes wires, not one but two, a power cable and usb adapter. Luckily due to the size of the pack, you likely will not have to charge often, but it also won’t do any good if it isn’t on hand. It is rather professional looking and I like how the red threading contrasts well with the black, but the non slip material is where it’s at. It does not allow for the iPad to slide once in contact, not very easily at least.
I think the Props Power Case is great, sure if has some bulk, but it also comes in handy. It is like having a small generator on hand because the iPad has never had an issue with battery life, although that also makes it easier to forget when I have to charge, because you will have enough to charge multiple devices. This may seem to be a bit of overkill to some, for anyone that does a lot of work from their devices and uses on the road, Props is a convenient and professional looking piece that will not leave you high and dry in any of your devices’ time of need.
