I just got my ebay TPU case, the one with the swoosh of ovals (http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180494000438) and I was surprised at how heavy it feels. So I decided to measure it and my Yoobao leather case to see how heavy they are and what that does to the iPad weight.

iPad WiFi (naked): 680g / 1.5 lbs
ebay TPU case: 127g / 0.28 lbs giving a total weight of 807g / 1.78 lbs.
Yoobao leather case: 257g / 0.57 lbs giving a total weight of 937g / 2.06 lbs.

If you have a scale, weigh yours and add to this thread. If the manufacturer specifies it you can post that (so long as it is case weight and not shipping weight which would include the packaging).

Thanks - Greg

I have an iPad 16gb wifi

Belkin grip vue - 1.8 lbs
Yoobao + sticky back grip - 2.1 lbs at least it doesn't slip out.

I am curious hoe much the upgraded yoobao leather case weighs with the extra leather tounge.

I would guess an extra 25 grams (less than an ounce) but it would be nice to have a measurement.

Can anyone provide the actual weight of the orignal Apple iPad case?. I have just had an iPad with this case in my hands and it felt very heavy!

I haven't been able to find this piece of info on the net.

thanks
