New Kensington PowerBack case is perfect for long-haul iPad use

The new Kensington PowerBack iPad case does four smart things in one – it acts as a kickstand, 4400mAh backup battery pack, speaker dock and MicroUSB sync/charge dock. At $129.99, it doesn’t exactly come cheap, but this is without a doubt one of the smartest iPad accessories released to date.

Combine the stand with a Bluetooth keyboard, and you’ll have the perfect replacement for a netbook, and enough juice to keep your iPad powered for an entire work day. It’ll soon be available for pre-order from Amazon, and you can signup to be notified when it is in stock on their product page.

Other new additions to the Fall Kensington lineup include a high power dual port wall charger, capable of charging the iPad (Wall Pack Duo Charger, $29.99), a similar power adapter for in the car (PowerBolt Duo Charger, $29.99) and an ultra compact high power single port car charger (PowerBolt Micro Car Charger $24.99).
