Ever since I got the iPad Mini, I have been researching the best accessory for it. Protection is the main driver for me to choose which brand or model to get. Tech21 launched in the Philippines that time. I read several write-ups about it. The impact technology caught my attention and I was really curious about Tech21 products.
I ended up with Tech21 for my iPad Mini. I chose the Impact Snap Case from among all the cases that they have . I specifically like its elegance, minimalistic look and functionality.
The best way for me to share my experience and my thoughts about Tech21 Impact Snap Case for iPad Mini is to make a list.
So here it goes….
7 reasons why I like the Tech21 Impact Snap Case with Cover for iPad Mini
- D30 Impact Protection – this feature is why Tech21 is so unique and quite popular. The orange lining on the case includes the D30 impact material. It is made of non-Newtonian polymer with an intelligent molecular structure. Those molecules usually flows freely, but upon shock or big impact, it would lock together absorbing all the force and spreading the shock across the material. In short, the Tech21 case would take the impact away from the device making it shock proof and impact resistant. It’s that cool that the material is being used by military worldwide!
- Ultra Slim Snap Fit – the important thing about a case is its capability to provide a perfect fit to the gadget. The Impact Snap Case by Tech21 did just that. The polycarbonate material securely holds the iPad Mini via the side clips. While it fits tightly, it’s also easy to get the case on and off the iPad Mini. Now, that’s awesome!
- Overall Look & Feel – Tech21 Impact Snap Case is classy, minimalistic, and obviously a premium case. The cover is composed of genuine leather on the outside and velvet on the inside. The cover not only protects the iPad Mini but it also keeps it clean due to the soft touch material used in the case. The other side of the case is made of reinforced polycarbonate. I just love how the iPad Mini looks with the case and I love how thin it is and how it feels when I hold it.
- Access to all Ports & Controls – The Impact Snap Case has cutouts for all ports & controls of the iPad Mini. The cutouts were done perfectly at the right size resulting to optimal protection for the gadget. The volume controls, power, stereo speakers, mute switch, camera, headphone jack and the lightning port are easily accessible.
- Protective Flip Cover – the leather flip cover protects the iPad Mini’s screen. Apart from that, the cover can be folded back completely at the back because of the way it was created. The folio style makes it light to carry around and elegant to look at. I love it!
- iPad Mini Stand Functionality – The Tech21 Impact Snap On Case allows us to use it as a stand thanks to the rubbery grips located on the side near the volume controls. The rubber grips are pretty sturdy that I never have to worry about my iPad Mini from sliding. Pretty neat & slick!
- Smart Cover functionality – while I like this functionality of the Tech21 Impact Snap Case, it’s also my only gripe with the product. I love that the cover has magnetic closure and automatically activates/deactivates the sleep function of the iPad Mini. However, it doesn’t always work. You have to make sure that the cover closes at the right part of the iPad screen. Other than that, I’m really very happy with the accessory 🙂
