5 of the Best iPad Accessories We Can't Live Without

Posted by Sumin Kim on

Whether you're a college student, office worker, or just an Apple fan, a new iPad can be a life-changing purchase. 

These are some of our favorite stands, cases, pencil cases, pencil stands, and overall accessories no matter which iPad you own. 

 

1. Magnetic Stand ($89.99)

 

Made in Korea to ensure quality, this stand utilizes strong magnets to keep your tablet in place. The adjustable viewing angle that is not commonly found in most iPad stands is perfect for any WFH or dual-monitor set-up. Definitely a long-term investment that's worth the price. 

2. Classic Apple Pencil Case ($14.49)

A trendy pencil case that looks like an analog pencil? Say no more! While there are currently more color options available for the 2nd Generation Apple Pencil, we still have a version for the original Apple Pencil 1 with the lightning port connection.

Note: When installing your Apple Pencil case, make sure you have the side labeled "magnetic" aligned with the flat part of your Apple Pencil otherwise it will not charge.

 

3. Tablet and Laptop Sleeve ($30.99)

 

We've always been frustrated with tablet & laptop cases that only come with literally one pocket for your device. Luckily, the designers here at elago stepped up to the challenge and designed the perfect (and we mean perfect) case. Not only is there an additional smaller pouch on the front to hold accessories or a smartphone, but there are additional slots and pockets on the inside to maximize capacity in a minimal way. 

Available in 3 sizes and multiple colors. 

 

4. Home Stand for Apple Pencil and Any Tablet Stylus ($16.99)

Available in 3 different color variations, this stand is what it is—a home for your stylus (complete with a little chimney)!

Looking for a simpler design? Check out our Silicone Stand

 

5. iPad Smart Folio Case ($18.99)

 

Available with or without a clasp and in a renewed magnetic version. Be sure to thoroughly read through the compatibility and purchase the one that is right for your model of iPad!

The Best Affordable AirPods 1&2 Accessories (2023)

Posted by Sumin Kim on

While upgrading from from traditional wired headphones to AirPods can be exciting, it can also be daunting given how they are a more luxurious purchase choice and are unsurprisingly easy to lose.

Luckily the team here at elago has you covered with some of the best accessories for your AirPods 1&2.

1. Silicone Hang Case for AirPods 1&2 ($6.99)

The tops of all AirPods cases can naturally come loose after a while based on how you handle your AirPods, which is why in addition to the adhesive tape included with all our cases, we made the duo case that comes with two different top covers. Mix and match the colors, or refresh your case if you start to feel the top part loosen. 

2. AW6 iPod Shuffle Case for AirPods 1&2 ($12.99)

Looking for more fun options than a simple solid color case? While the team's personal favorite is this one that resembles a nostalgic and retro iPod Shuffle, we have a variety of cases available ranging from Chocolate Ice Cream to a classic Gameboy

3. EarHooks for AirPods 1&2 ($13.99)

Not only are these EarHooks incredibly easy to store (just use a carabiner to clip them to the side of your AirPods case), but they are also a necessity if you find that your AirPods slip out easily, especially during exercise.

Another added bonus use we've found is that you can wear them on long plane or car rides when you fall asleep with your AirPods in and don't want to risk them falling out.

Not a fan of EarHooks? No problem! We also have an AirPods Strap as well as a smaller version of the classic EarHooks

4. Wrist Fit Adapter ($8.99)

Speaking of working out, if you also own an Apple Watch in addition to your AirPods, you might want to check out the Wrist Fit Adapter. We've found that running with an AirPods case in your pocket can feel bulky, so as a solution we designed a simple way to carry only your AirPods on your wrist—right next to your Apple Watch. 

5. Dust Guard for AirPods 1&2 ($12.99)

Listen, if you your AirPods case is already scratched up, I understand—so is mine. However, if you're reading this and your case still looks new, it's not too late. Make sure you pick up these simple Dust Guard stickers to protect the inside of your AirPods case from inevitable scratches, gunk, and dust. You'll definitely be thanking us when it comes time to clean your AirPods case because these make the job several times easier.

Note that the installation on this one is a bit more complex, so be sure to watch our instructional video.
