Just when you thought there was at least one place your tablet might not seduce you — say, underwater — here comes the Satechi Waterproof Tablet Case Series to keep you hooked. The case is so impermeable, it floats. It’s submersible to depths of up to 20 feet, so you can’t even escape while snorkeling (although you can take photos and videos, and surf the net if you can get online). The tablet slides into a built-in really heavy duty Ziploc-like compartment with a double waterproof “zip” seal. About 2.5 inches of the “bag” extends to the left of the tablet holding area, and is tightly rolled over itself three times then doubly sealed with a Velcro strip running the vertical length of the “Ziploc-ed” edge. This keeps out everything from sand to snow, but provides users with full control of the tablet’s touch screen via the covering’s transparent touch-sensitive front panel. The case’s book-like front cover closes with a magnetic clasp, and can be converted into a stand. A wristband provides extra grasping power. Available in orange or black, the waterproof case comes in sizes compatible with the iPad Air, iPad Mini or Kindle PaperWhite, with models for more electronic devices on the way.
