Dead iPad? This Cute Charging Case Is The Solution

Outfitting our tech toys in sleek sleeves and cases is a never-ending quest. (Hey, our doodads need to be well dressed, too!) But, despite how good they look on the outside, sometimes the actual device falls flat. Like, literally — it runs out of battery life and dies. An up-the-creek-without-a-paddle iPad is not a good look.
And, since a nonworking iPad isn’t going to serve any purpose (no matter how cute the case is), we were thrilled to learn about This Is Ground’s chic cover-ups that does double duty as a case and charging device. Huzzah!
It’s easy on the eyes, comes in a variety of buttery leather colors (we’re quite partial to the metallic), and inside, the leather-lined interior includes a rechargeable battery pack and cable that will inject new life into your gizmo.
This Is Ground Cargito Mini iPad Charging Case, $155, available at This Is Ground.
