Adapters & Cables

08/18/11  |  Posted by Niki Smith  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

So you've got your iPad and you're wondering what you can hook it up to. Here's a quick run-down of some of the cables available. Need to charge on the go? This Kensington PowerBolt adapter lets you plug your iPad into your car's cigarette lighter outlet so you can charge your iPad while you're out & about, or heading to CIA for the day. "Put your slides, movies, photos, and everything else that fills your iPad 2 screen on an even bigger screen - a VGA-equipped TV, monitor or external projector for video mirroring. The Apple VGA Adapter mirrors exactly what you see on iPad 2 so that everyone in the room can enjoy it." Great for class presentations, great for parties. Apple makes the iPad Camera Connection Kit, which comes with two different connectors. One turns your bottom docking port into a USB port-- you can use this to connect your digital camera, keyboards, and more. Install FileApp from the app store and you can use this USB port to view files on flash drives. The kit also comes with a SD card reader, so you can easily transfer photos from your camera to your iPad. Not content with your iPad's power capacity? You can expand that with a portable New Trent iCruiser IMP1000 to recharge anytime. This backup battery pack also works for pretty much any cellphone or gaming device, like PSP or Nintendo DS. Want something a little less function-driven and a little more fun? An iCADE turns your iPad into an old-school arcade machine, with joystick and buttons to mash.
