We are big fans of the protection offered for our devices by Otterbox and were thrilled to learn about their Agility Tablet System; this is truly an all-encompassing package of protection and accessories to meet the many different lifestyle needs of technology users.
The Otterbox Agility Tablet System starts with a shell that protects the following tablets: iPad 2/3/4, iPad Air, iPad Mini with Retina Display and more.
You can then expand your Otterbox Agility System by adding on components that meet your needs. A wall mount, standard dock, folio, and power dock can all help your tablet become a fixture in your day. Each expansion product improves the system as a whole and makes it easier to integrate into your daily life.
The Otterbox Agility shell is the core of the entire agility ecosystem. Along with great protection, the shell opens up the door to so many different options. Using the shell, you can charge your iPad, you can mount it on the wall or on the desk dock all while protecting your device. The way this shell works is by using magnets.
The hard plastic shell has a circular cut out with strong magnets that will be able to hold your device in place on any of the docking systems available. The most important part about the plastic shell is the protection. Otterbox is known for protecting our devices, and they continue to do that with the agility shell. This shell just snaps on, very simply to your iPad, but will protect from any accidental falls with ease.
The Folio Case
If you’re constantly on the go, then you may need to provide front protection as well. The folio case works great to protect from scratches while on the go. The folio case uses quality microfiber material to help protect the display of your iPad. Another feature of the folio is the magnet on the inside back. This magnet allows you to snap the folio case right onto the Agility Shell you already are using. While protection is great, Otterbox knows that multiple functions are what gets a smile on our faces and their Agility Tablet System delivers.
The folio case for your iPad also folds into different stands. You can stand your iPad up in horizontal and vertical positions. These positions are perfect whether you’re watching movies or typing. Though if you feel like you still want more options in folding, you can check out the deluxe folio. The deluxe folio is very similar to the folio case, with a few added features. Using the deluxe folio case, you can add a shoulder strap, or even take advantage of extra physical storage. The deluxe folio case folds entirely around the iPad and allows for more options when standing your iPad.
The Wall Mount
The wall mount has become one of our favorite features of the Agility line by Otterbox. This wall mount uses 3M Command Strips to attach to any wall like surface. Attach the wall mount to your wall, mirror, kitchen backsplash, anywhere you can think of mounting. Once attached, use the magnets on the back of your Agility Shell, and lock your iPad into place.
The magnets on both the Agility Shell and the wall mount are perfectly placed to avoid any give or take. Your iPad will be safe, and even if it did fall (which it won’t) the Agility Shell will protect you. One perfect time to use the wall mount is when following recipes in the kitchen – like my favorite jelly-filled thumbprint cookies!
This power dock is a power station for all your devices. Combining the Agility Shell and the Power Dock gets you a power station that sits perfectly on any counter, desk or nightstand. Once set up, plug in the wall power outlet, and then attach your tablet using the same magnets that are in all of the Agility line items. Once your iPad is attached you can plug it into one of the three USB charging ports. Now your iPad will charge, and you can still use it while on the dock. However, this is a power station, not just an iPad charger.
Most of your devices will use a USB charging cable. Since the power base has three USB charging ports, you can plug in any of your Apple or Android device into getting some juice. This is one of the reasons we love it in our charging hub in the kitchen. We can charge all of your devices in one spot, without taking up too many outlets on the wall.
For our family of four, the Power Dock is a game changer in our lives making our iPad 4 more functional and streamlining our charging area.
We also have the standard dock which maintains all of the durable featured on the Power Dock but without the power. This moves around the house with us and has become a must-have accessory for Facetime with family and friends. It naturally stands at a nice angle and keeps our iPad perfectly situated for the camera optimizing our screen time while on video.
With so many amazing features of the Agility Tablet System by Otterbox, it may be hard to choose which accessories you would want the most.
