    My favorite iPad Air 2 case is Logitech Anyangle

    http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/anyangle-case-ipad

    It's a bit heavy and bulky... but it's so useful that I can't use the iPad without. It lets you position it at any angle, and is stiff enough that you can type on it.

    My favorite iPhone external battery is Rapid Charge by MyCharge
    http://shop.mycharge.com/collections/other-great-ways-to-charge/products/rapid-recharge

    Good capacity, is pocketable. Has outlet prongs built in. No extra usb charging cable necessary. Just plug the whole thing in the wall. I have a short 3 inch USB Lightening cable sticking out of it. I've owned a number of other batteries without prongs, but always lose or forget the extra charging cables.

    I love my K811 keyboard. So handy. So useful.

    And here's my portable charger of choice for iPhone and iPad:

    5 times the power and 60% the cost of the MyCharge Rapid Charger...

    I love Speck Candyshell Cases. They're all I use for my iPhone. Lightweight, but great protection.

    Finally an alternative to SEV! I may just order one of these.

    That being said, I've totally fallen in love with NewTrent cases for iPhone. Gave my original Trenti 6 to my son, and am now using their Alixo 6. Waiting on their Apple watch band now.

    I also cannot say enough about Master and Dynamic headphones. Not kiddie fashion like Beats, but meant for the true audiophile. Hand crafted, and absolutely gorgeous. Not to mention comfortable!
