    Just curious what the exact weight (oz or g) is for the iPad Mini Smart Cover. I have a couple of off-brand cases that I had bought for the iPad Mini, but while not too bad, they do add some weight. Weights shown are my actual measurements.

    C'mon now, somebody has to have the official iPad Mini Smart Cover that can go weigh it! :)

    Yeah, I know how to use Google as well smart-alec and and saw that post a few days ago. That post just said what someone thought it should weigh, but nobody actually weighed it which is what I am asking on this forum. I have a hard time believing that the Apple Mini Smart Cover actually weighs a whopping 5.3 ounces (.15 kg) like that poster suggested...especially when in my first post I listed 2 other cases that had full backs that weigh less than 5.3 oz.

    Anyone else?

    The iPad mini smart case weighs 110g, so the cover must weigh a little less than that. My Air cover weighs 100g so my guess is 75g for the mini cover. Hope this helps.

    Used my Dymo, weight in ounces, with retina iPad mini and red Smart Cover. Hope it helps!

    Maybe should have switched to grams, but here those are for more precision:
    iPad w/ smart cover: 395g
    iPad only: 325g
    Smart Cover only: 70g
