With the summer season in full swing, tablet owners are looking for the best protection to keep their devices safe near the water. A number of manufacturers have spent countless hours designing and testing the best waterproof tablet cases, to keep the devices safe from water by the sea or by the pool. Naturally, these cases can also be used elsewhere, to protect the tablet from splash damage. Let’s take a look at the top 5 waterproof cases made for the iPad Mini.
The BubbleShield from The Joy Factory is the simplest water protection the iPad Mini can get. This tablet sleeve is made from transparent material, and is sealed via double zipper lock. You can’t exactly take it diving, but it will shield the tablet from water splashes at the beach or on the kitchen counter. The case comes with sound-resonating chambers allowing users to enjoy its speakers without taking the tablet out. It’s fully touch sensitive ensuring full control, and camera can be used just as easily as without any case on the device. There’s also a reinforced holder ring allowing easy attachment to carabiner, lanyard, etc.
