Trident Case for iPad Mini Schoolhouse Review #hsreviews
We have several electronic devices in our house. We have an original Kindle, an older Kindle Fire, an iPhone, I have my own iPad mini, and my girls have an iPad mini to share. I have a love/hate relationship with these devices. I love that we can take them any where and read a book, play a game, listen to music, take pics and videos. The thing I hate is I always worry about my girls carrying them around outside, or taking them along to piano lessons or soccer practice. I'm always afraid they will drop them! We recently received a KRAKEN A.M.S. Case For Apple iPad Mini 1/2 from Trident Case and now I feel so much better with the girls using their iPad mini for everything.
Trident Case offers a variety of cases for several different smart phones and tablets. This company started in CA in 2010 by offering 2 series of protective cases for mobile devices. They set out to create the toughest cases available and they now have 6 different series with over 550 SKUs available across the globe.
Trident products are produced in the USA using bio-enhanced plastic that is eco-friendly. All cases are available in at least 5 different color combinations, and some of the cases from Trident meet certain military standards to protect mobile devices from vibration, dust, sand, rain, and drop.
We received the KRAKEN A.M.S. CASE FOR APPLE IPAD MINI 1/2 IN GREEN, and it is available in six different colors for $59.95. It meets or exceeds the military standards, it can be dropped on concrete 26 times from 4 feet (Amber wants this testing job), protects against vibration, rain/wind, and it has a built-in screen protector. It is made of hardened polycarbonate exterior with silicone interior and can be used with tablet attachments. It is recommended for all ages including little kids & accident prone adults.
When we first received our TRIDENT case I had intended to use it with my iPad mini because I use it a lot in the kitchen. I have my favorite recipes stored there, so it is on the counter often. The girls had piano lessons and they always take their mini, so I put it on their iPad and I have never gotten it back.
I am a hands on person, so I just wanted to put the mini in the case & I didn't have any problems. There is a little booklet included in our case that contains instructions on how to install the device. If you still don't understand what you need to do there is a QR code that will take you to video instructions.
Our case has a hard exoskeleton on the front and back with a silicone cover in between. The screen protector is attached to the front exoskeleton and there is a silicone tab that covers the charging port and head phone jack. The back exoskeleton has an attachment port where accessories can be attached. This case is rain proof, but it is not water proof. The home button on our mini is not covered, so there is not a complete seal.
My girls love their case and I feel so much better with them having it on their mini. We only had a cheap little cover on their iPad before, so this is a big improvement to the quality of case. The hard plastic really helps my kids (especially my youngest) to have a better grip, it is not as slick as the iPad is itself. The screen protector sit snugly on the screen and we haven't had any trouble with the touch on the screen.
Alaina wanted to make suckers & usually I make the girls write down the recipes they find or print them out, but this time I let her use the iPad mini with her new cover. The protective case was very easy to wipe clean once she was finished.
