Group test: what's the best tablet PC accessory?

The best accessories for a tablet PC

PC Advisor reviews the best tablet PCs accessories.

5. Keyboard Folio

At £125 the Sena Keyboard Folio isn’t a cheap iPad case option, but it does include the Bluetooth keyboard in the £70 leather Folio case design. So you’re paying £55 for the additional keyboard integration – fractionally less than you’d pay for one of the Apple iPad keyboard options. The Sena Keyboard Folio is a smart and neat option for the iPad super user who needs the iPad to work more like a laptop on occasion, and the designer looks of the luxury case are hard to beat.

4. Zaggmate iPad keyboard case

If you're considering the keyboard-case route, the Zaggmate iPad Case with Keyboard is a unique option that offers a much better experience than the iPad’s onscreen keyboard when you need to do serious typing, and it lets you position your iPad in either portrait or landscape mode. It has a sleek, compact design, with solid protection for the front and sides of your iPad, as well as a full complement of keys, including iPad-specific special-function keys However it doesn’t offer the all-over protection of most other keyboard cases, and some may find the keys somewhat small. But if you need an iPad keyboard case right now the Zaggmate is worth a serious look.

3. IGo Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad

Robust and portable, versatile and easy to use, the iGo Bluetooth Keypad for iPad is priced to shift. We just wish its name reflected its versatility.

2. Scosche FoldIO

A smart-looking, durable case is a must for every tablet user, and at £40 the Foldio is a contender for business professionals and consumers looking for a solution that provides flexibility as an adaptable iPad stand. Definitely worth considering.

1. Evolution 2500

One of the most likable and practical portable chargers we've tried, the PowerFreakz Evolution Solar 2500 helps you boost the battery life of pretty much any type of gadget. The international mains adapter, solar panel and ability to recharge via USB ensures there's unlikely to be scenario when you can't make a case for packing it in your luggage. In fact, it's coming on holiday with me next week.
